Nature

I threw the Cheese-itz up several times before I got the shot.

Humming Bird. If you put a flower in a cup and sit it outside, then put some sugar water inside the flower, you are sure to get these guys visiting. A solid tripod and a good camera, (in my case a Nikon D700 with 300mm f2.8 lens}, a whole circle of flash units,- the flash units are necessary to freeze the wing movement- I think I used about 4 for this shot-- and just wait. Took me 2 days of patience to get this. It was in my backyard in Massachusetts.

I love this image. I took this photograph at Gatorland, Orlando. There is a little know Rookery at the rear behind all the tourist stuff and it is a Photographers dream in early spring when the birds all return here to have their babies. This is Egret feeding time.

Note

All of these bird pics were taken at Gatorland! Anyone can do it. They are so docile at spring breeding time. I was using a Nikon D700 with 70 to 200mm zoom so as not to intrude.

This Anhinga has tonights dinner sorted.
