Surfers at Vilano Beach FL, after 3 days of near constant rain. They told me the surfing is this good maybe 10 days a year. It was a blast shooting them!
One of this year’s fawns on Christmas morning. Most likely the last one here. I will miss our furry and feathered friends more than I can bear to think about right now.
I gave up trying to photograph critters, especially birds, in a pristine setting. If I always went for pristine, I’d never have any shots. So I try to make good compositions within the environment I find them in and take as many shots as I can. One thing I do want in most cases is a catchlight in the eye(s).
Also, when I’m shooting any creature who is hunting/fishing, I try to keep my distance so I don’t disturb them.
Right after she’d made an attempt to grab a squirrel off the bird feeder next to our kitchen window. I’d love to see one succeed some day.
12/13/12: After a few chilly and overcast days, the girls take advantage of temps of mid/upper 50’s, taking cleansing flights and warming themselves in the sun. Some are still finding pollen in the middle of December!
