as long as you keep them separate. This is a hodge podge of shots. The one succulent shot is a focus stacked shot consisting of 30 images stacked in Zerene. These are from various locations but the succulent is mine. I bought it a year ago to photograph and it decided to give me another opportunity this year.


Beautiful set Carol! The succulent stacked shot is a wonderful success....another learning pathway on my list.

Very attractive set Greg! I like the way you used the light in the second photo. It is good to know you are out and about!

Venus included in #1. Canon 100-400. Please try the downloads for better clarity.


This set is a masterclass in the art of botanical photography. The plant is illustrated with field guide clarity and with grace and elegance. Science and art have never been incompatible. Beautiful work Donna, you continue to inspire me!

We are baby sitting my grand daughter's puppy this week. He has been having fun with the toads in our yard--no toads were injured in the making of these photos!


Wonderful! Toads don't herd....

Thanks so much for your kind words...I'm really glad you liked them...do you get them out where you live?


Just one more beauty that never gets west of the Mississippi! And just one more reason why I value the contributions of "right coast" bird photographers.

In my somewhat twisted mind:

- the left-hand water drop represents the occasionally distorted past
- the middle water drops and the flower bud show the clarity of the present
- the right hand water drop moving from the flower bud and melding with the stem represents the unclear
future.

Tickseed (Coreopsis sp.) flower bud with refractive glimpses of mature flowers.

Have to view (Download)


I'm cool with twisted minds!

....one of my photographs made the cover of The Dragonfly Society of the Americas journal "Argia". It was taken at the Southeastern DSA survey near Crestview, FL. The Dragonfly Society of the Americas (DSA) advances the discovery, conservation and knowledge of Odonata through observation, collection, research, publication and education. The DSA encourages scientific research, habitat preservation, and aesthetic enjoyment of Odonata through (1) cooperation and comradeship among odonatologists worldwide; (2) fostering interchange between amateurs and professional enthusiasts; (3) establishing publications to disseminate information relating to Odonata; (4) support for wetlands and habitat preservation as the most effective manner for odonate conservation; and (5) cooperation with organizations sharing common goals of environmental preservation.

Not a brag Doc, just deserts in the best meaning of the phrase! Your work is worthy of this kind of use and I am happy for you. Congratulations.

This small finch like bird was originally called the Nutmeg Manikin. Recently renamed "Scaley-breasted Munia," this exotic species originated in Southeast Asia but has established a viable population in Southern California. A smaller population had found its way to Houston, TX. They seem to populate stream beds and ponds where reeds and grasses are plentiful. They only grow to about 4-1/2" in length and have very quiet calls.

These shots was taken on an overcast day, handheld, with a Nikon D500 and Nikkor 200-500mm telezoom. The birds were part of a larger group discovered yesterday morning at the Carbon Canyon Regional Park in Orange County.

Excellent post Jak! I have read about this bird but not seen one. You continue to educate me, thank you!

Great set! Is the second one on the June Lake Loop? I love that area too, especially the drive up over Sonora Pass and then Tioga Pass to Tuolumne Meadows. I'm going to try to get there soon.


The second shot is on the Twin Lakes Road west of Bridgeport but the June and Gull Lake Loop and the Mammoth Lakes with thier steep East Sierra backgrounds are equally beautiful. The Tioga-Sonora Pass loop is great way to get to and from the East Sierra from our area. I also try and use Ebbetts/Monitor and Sonora Passes each year. These seasonal passes slow us down, show us great beauty and cause us to give a thought to what a "thing" it is to actually make a trans Sierra Nevada crossing. Thanks for the visit DJ, Happy crossings! Phil

It seemed a little harder to find Warblers here in the Northeast this year...maybe it was because the leaves came out earlier this Spring...and it made it easier for them to hide! I found this one in the deep woods so the light is not ideal.


Beautifully photographed series Jan! All field marks are well illustrated. It is a bird I wish I had on my life list.

Haven't posted in a long time - had computer issues - answer new computer.

These shots are from my shoot at the ranch. It was about 28 degrees and windy - so cold, hard to hold camera and focus.

Wow, your were working with some gorgeous light here Rowedean and the results are beautiful! I love the idea of a place called Music Meadows Ranch. Glad you are back with us.

This humpback whale spent nearly three weeks in Alameda lagoons near the aircraft carrier Hornet, feeding and putting on spectacular shows. Most of my shots and that of others (all from shore) were from hundreds of yards away, but the whale suddenly breeched right in front of me, less than 30 yards away. Would have got splashed except I was pretty high above the water. Was lucky to be at only 70mm focal length and ready!

Yesterday she left Alameda, hopefully for her normal feeding grounds in the ocean.

Excellent catch! Read about this visitor, really glad someone who knew what they were doing made some excellent photos. Yes, I also hope she is safely out of the bay. Nice work pmackd.
