Red Necked Grebe

DSC_6500a

Yellow Jacket. On my wife’s back no less! I don’t know who’s more crazy, her for letting me take the pic or me asking her to stand still.

DSC_6544a

A long exposure of a moose at night. Just had to see how this would look.

While we still have some light.

I had some icehole give me grief because I had a camera in the park. Said it was “F***ing strange.” Taking pics of my Granddaughter is strange? I’m sure someone taking pics three feet directly in front of the subject looks suspicious. Wut?

DSC_6222a

It really isn’t easy getting this close with a 60mm lens.

DSC_6229a

Happy woodpecker is happy!

PICTURES!!!

DSC_6031a

Ok, it’s not my best bee pic but I liked how fluffy the bee looked.

DSC_6068a

It’s overexposed but I liked the starburst pattern.

DSC_6074a

This one is nice and clear.

DSC_6078a

And this one is not.

DSC_6084a

Trying to get two droplets in one pic.

DSC_6088a

I like the starbursts on this one too.

DSC_6094a

You can see the sun in this one. That sap sticking out of this looks strange.

DSC_6107a

This one looks most unusual. Almost like an egg.

And now for the creepy pics:

DSC_6006a

Here’s looking at you!

DSC_6125a

Help me!

DSC_6130a

Creepy spider and creepy shadow! Score!!

I could’ve had a moose pic but it was hiding too much, and I didn’t have my camera when I saw a fox, and the blue jays were too fast for me, the bald eagle was too far from me, and the salmon wouldn’t pose for me. But maybe next time….

Anyways, that’s it for now. Place your vote for best pic!

Standard blather, click for high resolution image.

I did a night time long exposure with the aperture set at f32. The star effect on the lights are natural. The shorter exposures didn’t produce them. Must do some research on this phenomenon. Also, the moon was a real cool orangish-red and the long exposure over-exposed it.

DSC_5909a

It’s not a bee but it sure has some similarities. Bee wannabe?

DSC_5910a

One of these days I’ll learn the names of the things I take pics of! So for now, I’ll just title this ‘Red Flower’. Original, eh?

DSC_5921a

I tell ya, if I got any closer I’d be on the other side. I swear I hit its tail with my lens as I was trying to get this shot. Notice the texture on the eyes? Yes, it’s mostly blurry. I wanted to close the aperture some more but the sun was setting and the light wasn’t that strong.

DSC_5929a

This one was up high in a tree. I had to aim high (Air Force pun intended) and hope I had it framed and the auto-focus worked.
