Last week a flock of white ibises visited my marshy world. They were very agreeable about posing for pictures, so I was able to get quite close and took many photos. I think this shot shows depth pretty well. The birds in front are in focus with the ones in the back blurred.
Crabs and Oysters, oh my. Here’s my two-fer on Textures.
First photo is a shot of the mud burrows of the fiddler crabs. If you look closely on the right side of the picture you can see the crabs at work.
The second photo is a close up of an oyster bed along the river bank.
Living at the beach, I take many beige photos. Here’s one of a little birdie friend. I’d tell you the type….but I haven’t a clue.
The blue heron below seems to be expressing his deep contemplation of the world. His pose emulates Rodin’s “The Thinker. ” Or could it actually be that he is scratching an itch. We’ll never know.
Everyone loves a parade….especially on Tybee Island. Remember February 14, 2015 is the annual Mardi Gras Parade. Come get your swag.
All you need to do is place yourself on the swing…with a perfect day and a light breeze…there you have it, “Serenity”.
It was early afternoon on Monday. Sunshine was bright and the sky was clear….a perfect day for casting shadows.
This gull was flying very low to the ground. Pretty cool how the wings almost touch the sand.
For a little bird…this guy cast a pretty large shadow.
Around the oyster beds and shells, these two were looking for lunch. I didn’t really notice at the time I was taking the picture, but the shadows do give depth to the photo.
Hope you like my shadows.
