This afternoon at Michell's farm ... Amazing creatures swam, flew and dazzled. The warm Spring air filled with birdsong and sweet scents. Along the waterways, a variety of dragonflies raced along hunting for mosquito's and dazzlling each other and me with their ariel manoeuvres.
This one managed to get part of himself in focus while I chased him with 400mm of glass.
1 Snow goose living with a group of Canada's ... Wonder what his/her story might be???
Greetings to everyone!
This will be my first ever photoless blog post, but I just wanted to thank everyone at the Kamloops show who gave me such a warm welcome and for all of your very kind comments.
This past weekend was my first ever public exhibition of photography and I was so pleased to know that people enjoyed my work.
A big Thank You to each and every one of you kind folks who stopped by to say hello and chat about birds, nature and photography.
One day soon, I would love to be able to get back to the Kamloops area and spend time photographing your local wildlife. What a beautiful city !!!
Cheers and All the Best...
I had to get out of my workshop this afternoon and enjoy the warm air!
I went to the Dairy farm , where there are some large ponds and an ample supply of birds!
Not quite sure what species of swallows these are, but the fast darting aerobatic manoeuvres kept my camera very busy trying to connect , focus and shoot with some decent light angles.
I got a few sharp images and lots of misses! ...... Hope everyone has a great weekend.......... Terry :)
Today I was at the beach practising flying shots , particularly gulls that had found a clam. They fly up to a certain height and then "bombs away" drop the clam onto the rocks below to break it. Their keen eyesight leads them straight down to a fresh clam dinner!
If you follow a few of these frames, you'll see the clam dropping ...
March 2018 .. I just received notice that my blog has been awarded a distinction of being one of the top 100 photography blogs in Canada.
