Pulsating Pelican

DP Photo Challenge: Out-of-Focus

I’ve been trying to get better at taking night pictures.  Basically right now, I’m bad.  But that said, I have gotten some interesting out-of-focus results.  I share two with you below.

This one is a pelican in flight.  It was late dusk and he was flying as part of a pair.  I have cropped and used a filter on the photo and actually like the result, it was not what I intended, but that’s okay, too.

Here’s a shimper at night on the Savannah River.  It is the best of the bad.  I actually did use a tripod, but I need some training, to get the settings on my camera right.

Atop the Fence Post

DP Photo Challenge: Atop

A few days ago this little fellow (a Carolina Anole) was sitting atop the fence post just enjoying the sunshine.  Today he is probably hiding somewhere warm and dreaming about the hot days to come.  Note the weird end of his tail.  If these lizards are threatened, they will allow part of their tail to break off…..I wonder what happened to this poor guy?

Tiny Crabbies in the Swamp

Here are two shots of tiny fiddler crabs that live in the local swamp.  The second picture is a crop/enlargement of the first, so that you can see detail.  Fiddler crabs are  critters that totally fascinate me….I watch them execute what appear to be military maneuvers on the sand and build cities of tubes. They attract various sea birds who eat the crabs. (More photo opportunities for me.)  And, the colors of their shells are so beautiful.

I hope you like my interpretation of the “tiny” theme for this week.
