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.
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.
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.
