Re: Perspective is all....caution follows

I really like the way the black and white processing in the first image camouflages the alligator, keeps me looking at/for it. In the second, I like the DOF with the narrow focus on the eye. BTW, 15 minutes to get on your feet - I know that feeling well! :) Thank you. Yep, I will be printing the BW...

Re: Branching out into remote learning

I am going to play the Devil's Advocate here, and hopefully voice some considerations of a none pie in the sky manner. I have been around teaching, tech, and such for a long time. I have watched with interest how the internet has blossomed forth with on-line teaching in various venues and formats. I...

CaraCara - Mexican vulture

Although classed as a raptor the CaraCara cannot grasp with its talons like other raptors. It prefers carrion, but will literally run down a beach rat or other small rodent. It kills using its enormous beak which is powerful! Not my best picture of these birds but does show the feet and talons weel,...

Perspective is all....caution follows

Got these two guys a couple weeks back. THe BW one actually swam to us from the opposite bank of a small pond...put the wife in the car, and she don't spook easily! ;) I moved around to the side and kept a close eye on him, but he only put his head up on the shore and watched us. The shot was taken ...

When is macro not macro....

When it is done with a telephoto lens from a distance. Oftentimes that is the best combination to use for getting closeups of small critters....such as damsel flys in the backyard. ;) Tip: Damsels and dragons tend to use a favorite perch to hunt from. So when you see one watch it closely it will lan...
