Not bad! I wonder how the scenery in #6 would look like without that painting effect...

Because it's the same little place that I visited 3 times in the last 3 months, it's difficult to come up with new shots each time.
Alas! This place is no Huntley and I'm no Winston!

1. Backlit grasses in the morning light.



2. Should've processed the bird better.


3. Deadwood in the marsh. There are hundreds of tress that have died but remain standing. I wonder why.


4. Bright blue sky.


5. Dragonfly. Too bad about the dusty blue rather than a shiny, bright blue.


6. Tried a painting effect.


7. Did I mention it was a bright, sunny day?


8. This dude was super tiny! Glad to have found him.


9. A wary eye.


10. Textured back.


11. Three orange stripes.


C&C welcome and appreciated.

Regards
Sashi

Nice, I hope the bugs were not too annoying (the ones that bite).

Hi Sashi

Lots of beautiful shots . I am partial to those with the red-headed woodpeckers. It is a bird species that I have only come across once.

Thanks, Michele and Joe.

For #2, it was at 900mm and the dragonfly was pretty far! I just managed a shot before it flew off so I didn't have the luxury of working harder. But I'll try to remember that for future.

It gets better and better. #2 and 7 this time. #2 would be an absolute winner if the eyes were in focus, now the wings are. Still, a very pleasing image. #7 has a great composition. All in all, the series is very diverse and that is an accomplishment too. TFS Sashi .
Respect. Observe. Capture. Enjoy.

It's been a month already, huh? I made a trip this morning.
My main goal was at least 1 good quality BIF shot. Barely got any chances at it - except one where a whooping crane flew by, silently and gracefully. Got 4-5 shots, all of them misses.

However, I did come back with other shots which at least provide some satisfaction.

All with ILCA-77M2 plus Tam 150-600 G1.

1. Bottlebrush - a common plant to swampy/marshy areas of the eastern USA.


2. Dragonfly 1.


3. Dragonfly 2.


4. Desperate 'tog will shoot any bird he can find.


5. Desperation causes me to shoot even this.


6. And this, even though I went to a wildlife preserve.


7. Tiny swamp land.


8. Funny colors of the "green" heron when I can't get the WB right.


9. Er, are you taking my pic?


10. From a few hundred yards away. These birds just stayed put all the time I was there.


11. "Frank, I'm telling you, that man's taking pictures of us!"


12. Would appreciate ID for this butterfly.


13. Same guy as above.


14. And a third one.


15. Tiger swallowtail, if I'm not mistaken.


16. Enjoying the sunshine.


C&C welcome and appreciated.
TFL
