This was another moment I got down on my knees in the sand to capture a bird at eye level. He or she was a tricky one as he or she couldn’t make up his or her mind as to which way he or she wanted to go. The waves changed and started crashing up against him or her before he or she could retreat. It was a lot of patience and humorous to watch.
Welcome to Week #8 of the Bird Weekly Photo Challenge. Week #8 challenge is Birds at the Feeder. I did not set this challenge with myself in mind. We don’t put seed in our feeders during our summer months. Why, you ask? Well…it’s because the Swallow-tailed & Mississippi Kites are prominent in our neighborhood during the summer.
Week #7 Any bird (your choice) in black & white or sepia tone.
Next week #8 is Birds at the Feeder.
We had Flat Stanley for 2 weeks and took him on all sorts of adventures. c.2006. “Flat Stanley” is a children’s book by Jeff Brown that began as a bedtime story for his sons which recounts the adventures of Stanley Lambchop after he is squashed flat by a bulletin board while sleeping. It was originally published in 1964. In 1995, Dale Hubert, a third grade school teacher in London, Ontario, Canada began “The Flat Stanley Project” which was designed to improve reading & writing skills in elementary school students.
Ponce de Leon Lighthouse is the tallest in Florida at 175 feet (53.34 meters) high and the second tallest in the United States behind the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse in North Carolina. It is equipped with a Third Order Fresnel lens and shines out 17 nautical miles (32 kilometers or 20 miles).
Week #7 challenge is Any bird (your choice) in black & white or sepia tone. Post as many or little as you choose. Have fun with your settings, filters or get creative in Photoshop. Leave a splash a color if you would like as long as the majority is black and white.
Week #6 WOODPECKERS | SAPSUCKERS | FLICKERS
Next week #7 is any bird (your choice) in black & white or sepia tone.
Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge My friend and coworker took some photos of me one late afternoon when we stopped at Gemini Springs Park outside of Sanford, Florida. We had attended a trade show in Orlando earlier in the day back in January.… Continue Reading “CEE’S BLACK AND WHITE PHOTO CHALLENGE – Cameras or Photographers”

On an outing to Fort Desoto Park in Tierra Verde near St. Petersburg, I made it my mission to get the Nanday Parakeet onto my life list. I had seen them years earlier in St. Pete, but I wasn’t recording birds back then. Within 20 minutes of driving into the park, I heard them long before I saw them.
