Capturing That Perfect Photo

I have tried for a long time to capture a hummingbird hovering.  I finally did, but it was not the perfect photo I wished.  But then how hard is it to capture a hummingbird at all.

Capturing this foggy sunrise was a much easier task.  It amazes me how fog can make the sun look as if it were the moon.

This big eyed fly on my Mexican Sunflower sat perfectly still and let me snap a close up.

An early morning sunrise.  I thought the clouds in the lower part of this sunrise were quite beautiful.

I chased this squirrel away from my apple tree.  He ran a short distance and jumped into another tree.

This little pest was back in a short amount of time – stealing apples.

The bumblebees seem to be abundant in our yard anymore.  They do photograph well. They totally ignore me as I shoot close up pictures.

I love reflections in water so I will leave you with this photo.

Dignity of Nature

“What my eyes seek in these encounters is not just the beauty traditionally revered by wildlife photographers.  The perfection I seek in my photographic composition is a means to show the strength and dignity of animals in nature.”  FRAN LANTING

The Baby Rabbit who was not sure if I was a sunflower or a tree (because I stood so still).

The deer who stood still as if she thought she was invisible to me.

This squirrel does not need to climb my apple tree – the wind just throws apples at him while he is on the ground.

A trip to Beaver Lake where the Geese are very friendly.

This mother rabbit is quite tame and we often get within a few feet of her as we greet her for the day.  I must admit her two babies are quite scared of us.

This Robin is slightly blurry – he fell in the bird bathe and now he is trying to shake himself dry – he is a little pitiful to view. Lol

Butterflies are beautiful creatures of nature and catching two face to face is unusual.

This Duck was at Beaver Lake and followed me trying to acquire some type of food.

Can’t forget the bumble bee, which seems to be on just about every flower I view.
