Just A Few Nature Shots......

Recommended Posts

that some of you might enjoy :)

I've been out with the camera a couple X's in the last few weeks, and these were taken in those two trips......

This little Momma Kildeer was sitting on a nest she built 8" onto the side of the gravel road ! But she was smart..... she built it right behind (or in front, depending on your direction) of about a 15 lb rock, sitting on the side of the road. Anybody hit her, and they better be ready to swap with a new tire / wheel :)

White Faced Ibis. Trippy birds :)

Down the hatch ! :)

Normally, backlighting kills me, but I kind of like the effect with these Bufflehead's In-Flight.

American Bittern. Really tough for me to catch. This was still BL, and a heany crop.... but I thought, usable. You ever hear these things "drumming" ??? One of the craziest sounds in nature !

Oh.... and shot through my {dirty... on the outside} bedroom window. I was surprised how nice it came out.

That's all for now :)

Hope you enjoyed them :)

Peace,

PS, Even If you see these shots, scaled down, and they look okay.... still, please try this, expand them to full size, then set your monitor for 100%. This will give you max detail :)

Oh also, these should be big enough for a desk top, so if you want to use one, feel free. I think you can grab them from here, right ? Not protected ? If so, just ask. I'll e-mail it to you.

I'll have to do it. It's strange, of all the big saltwater fish I've caught, I have very, very few pictures of them. But I geek out about catching a five pound bass....

Very nice Chris. I love shooting critters, but can't come close to those.

Well much thanks again all :)

Hey Fishing Rhino, I'm flattered..... but in this day and age, with all of the cheap, amazing technology available, and of course > The Internet, everyone and their Grandmother is shooting like a pro ! :) LOL

Seriously, anytime I get to thinking I am shooting some pretty cool stuff, I just go to a few photo websites I know of, and "Wow ! Look at that" !!!

That sets me right back in my place :)

Their are just a tremendous number of great photographers out there nowadays. Basically, most anyone who wants to be one, can.

But obviously it helps to have "the eye" for it too :)

Peace,

Fish

PS, I'll be on the water tomorrow, and my cameras are as much of a must, as my poles ;)

Hope to post some photos of something cool in the next couple days ;) Be it a trophy C/R, or a nature shot, either way :)

Hey FishinDaddy, my camera is a T1i, but to be honest, it has given me fits.... My 400 F5.6 lens, on the other hand, is sweet ! :)
