Since I returned to Florida, it seems the weather has not cooperated with my photographic aspirations.
While blue skies peek through, but for the most part we have had a lot of rain and gray skies. This is our dry season so it's been a bit odd.
I've been out walking with the dog and hoping for good photos. The most irritating thing is that I've been seeing some new birds, rather than the same old herons and cranes. And all the pictures I have of them are horrific!!!
Grainy and noise filled. Not enough light.
ah well here are some of them.
This is an Anhinga. It's also known as a Snake bird. It does not have the oils on its feathers to help keep feather dry, so it's often photographed drying its wings. It's called a snake bird because when it swims its totally under water except for its head, and it looks like a snake….
It's supposedly a common bird here in Florida, but this was the first time I had seen one. and that photo just isn't that great…
Onwards to the next gray weather travesty.
Turtle. It's totally out of focus, and would have been such a fun shot. This may be less the gray weather and more my learning of the new camera, but I'm blaming it on the weather!!!
and the worst is my Osprey. I drove up to the Hospital where I have an interview at this week, and since it is beside a lake, I took my camera.
I found an Osprey perched on a light pole at the hospital itself.
Just look at how horrid and grainy the photo is. It's like Newsprint….
and then the Osprey did this odd thing….
I think it was thinking of flying away, but it didn't It just eventually tucked the wing up…
Just horrid light.
Well…..today started out raining AGAIN, so I gave up and decided to post these anyway as examples of what not to do……
good gracious. I have a feeling as soon as the skies clear up, the interesting birds will disappear!!!
