Ooh, Shiny! – Ooh, Birdie!

DP Photo Challenge: Ooh, Shiny

For my shine, let’s go with birds….although for me, it can be any critter out there.

Don’t ask how many times, hubby and I are traveling in the car (He drives.) and I yell “Ooh, look” and he thinks death is imminent.  Then I get scolded when I say, “what a beautiful bird.”  But he still says, he loves me.

So here are a few bird pictures I have taken in the past couple of days.  I hope you enjoy.

What Bridge? It was a Cat.

DP Photo Challenge: Bridge

When I saw this post, I thought to myself, “I normally don’t take pictures of bridges.”  But I do live on an island.  So I go to my stash of photos and all I can say is “Wow, I’m a liar.”

Anyhow, here we have pictures of a cat and a sunset…oh yeah, I take pictures of bridges.

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.

Tuesday’s Excitement

DP Photo Challenge: Evanescent

How much difference a few hours make.  These two photos below were taken this past Tuesday afternoon.  It was an exciting day in Tabby’s backyard.

Yes, it was officially a tornado rolling over Fort Pulaski and down the Savannah River.  This picture was taken from the back porch….a little closer and I would have been cowering in the laundry room.  But no damage for us, the fort wasn’t so lucky.

At dusk there was a break in the action and the birds took advantage of the feeder.  I spotted a male painted bunting, one of my favorites.  This photo was taken in the back yard.

Evanescent events, both of them.
