Last Butterfly?

I was walking into the house when I noticed this butterfly sitting on the ledge. I took a quick snap of him–he barely moved. He eventually closed his wings all the way, straight up like a sail. They were plain brown, quite a contrast to the side pictured here. A breeze caught the wings, he […]

How beautiful! Poor little thing. Life is probably almost over for it. They don’t live long. Gorgeous snap, however!!

Hawks Fight Over Snake – Fitting End for The Snake

I was shooting at a baseball game in Maryland on the first base line.  I heard a “Screeeech — Screeeech” and quickly turned around. About 100 yards away from me, the ball fields ended and transitioned to a wooded area. I saw movement and took four quick shots. The distance truly was 100 yards but […]

Nikki, thanks for the compliment! I took a Kelby class led by Jay Maisel. I use the same camera and walkabout lens he does (D3s and 28-300) and when he does street photography in Manhattan, he always shoots at 1600 because of the lower light situations that always seem to come up in the City. So, I’ve been trying it. Not sure how I like it but the increased shutter speeds do add one dimension that I’ve really gotten used to over the weeks I’ve tried this. I am lowering the ISO a little. Again, thanks for looking and commenting! Lee

Actually a question, do you always shoot at such a high ISO? Or just when your outdoors? Also, Eleanor Holcombe turned me on to your site – love it!!

Wow! What luck and what great shooting. I feel awful for the snake though.

Post-Hurricane Butterfly

I came home from checking the work facility after Irene and saw our butterfly bush being visited by a couple of these butterflies. I think this is the Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly. Not sure. But they loved our bush and were spending quite of bit of time feeding. The breeze is still sort of strong so […]

Nice of you to provide a feeding station for them! That camera and YOU are astounding!! I thought about planting some butterfly bushes but the problem is…….they show up in droves, eat the goodies, lay eggs and then their children proceed to devour my flowers! Love butterflies! Hate caterpillers!!

That is just AWESOME!! I wonder where the delicate little thing rode out the storm! You’d think the butterflies would all get dashed to death! It’s wonderful that beauty survives the worst Mother Nature can dish out!!

San Diego Zoo Safari Park

This Safari Park may have been the best “attraction” of all the places we visited in Southern California. We were told that usually it’s very, very hot at the park during the summer but, we were lucky, the temperature stayed reasonable and so we were able to spend a leisurely day. The park is very […]

Those shots are fantastic! You’re making me wish for a bigger, fancier camera!! (Don’t tell TCM I said that.) Trouble is….I don’t have your curiosity about the world so a fancier camera probably isn’t necessary. I’ll rely on your work!!
