June 30, 2017

These birds are small, and members of the woodpecker family.  usually they don’t let me get so close, but this one was as curious about me, as I was about it.

I don’t usually see ladybugs this early in the Summer, but I saw this one on my way home from work.  I just love the red wings, and white head.

As a continuing project that I didn’t realize I was involved in, I found today’s photograph on my way home from work.  It rained overnight, and left behind these drops on the plant.  If you look closely at the big drop in the center you’ll see my reflection.

According to NYIP there are three criteria for any good photograph; a clear subject, a way to focus on the subject, and to simplify it for the subject.  Nothing helps obtain all three of these more than a good fog, like today’s photograph.

I love festivals, especially those featuring local restaurants.  The Noonan Family Ranch from Maine has prepared some delectable lamb shish kebabs for the Old Port Festival.

Great egrets are one of the most beautiful marsh birds. Yesterday, I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph one using my 600 mm lens.

Sometimes the best pictures happen right after a rain storm, so don’t put away the camera when it rains.

Photo Friday: Majestic Birds

This time of the year is perfect for capturing snowy egrets, and one finally got close enough for me to get a great shot.  If you’ve ever tried to shoot these birds, and ended up with a white blob, the secret is to under expose it by one stop; it makes all the difference.
