I'm not sure what Bucky McDeerface is thinking here, but I don't think I like it!
That moment when you realize that your quarry is onto you...
The Tingley Fountain male counterpart to the female in a previous post.
The extremely rare, almost mythical, Pumpkin Spice Turtle (testudo graeca cucurbita spice). They are rarely seen in the wild but a lucky few may get to see one in mid to late October when they are migrating to their winter homes...
The poor guy's arms are too short to knock that ant off of his nose!
One of the three individuals that make up the Tingley Fountain memorial at Cave Hill Cemetery.
Experimenting with processing this deer photo as if it were a glamour portrait. I think she's ready for Hollywood!
You know, I swore, swore, swore that I would stick to still photography and not venture into videography. My reasons were many: too time consuming, can't use popular music due to licensing issues, don't want a second camera, editing software is too expensive and you need a master's degree in knob-twiddling to use it, files are too big, the process is slow and grueling, etc., etc., etc... Then along comes a $20 app for the iPad (and iPhone) that squashes every reason I had to stay away from videography except for the availability of popular music. Well, it turns out that nature videos don't really need popular music so, now I've gone and done it.. Dipped my toe in video.
Still very amateurish, but kinda has a Cinéma Vérité feel to it. I also have much to learn about the iPad app but, wow! talk about bang for the buck. LumaFusion, check it out on the iOS app store.
If you are not fortunate to live close to an area with forest creatures, I made this video for you...
One I have not run into before. A Gulf Fritillary with the sun shining through its wings. This is about as far north as they go.
The Passion Flower is one of the most exotic looking plants you will find in the woods, and along roadsides, in the south. “La Flor de las cinco Llagas" or the ‘The Flower With The Five Wounds,’ as it was known by seventeenth century Spanish missionaries in South America, was used by them to teach the story of the crucifixion (or Passion) of Christ to the South American indigenous peoples.
This one, like so many others, was along the path I took through Tom Sawyer Park yesterday and was being visited by an unknown bug while I was being mesmerized by it…
