Birds In Flight

I’m fascinated with the ability of birds being able to fly, and perhaps a bit jealous.  I love to capture this amazing mode of transportation.  Here are some recent pics.

I was at a local park walking along the asphalt path and happened to capture a Goose with her gosling crossing the path ahead of me. Something looked familiar about it to me.   At first I couldn’t place it, then it dawned on me, it looked like the Beatles aalbum cover for Abbey Road.  So after looking at the cover, I flipped the image horizontally and added the crosswalk lines.   I almost added more like the cars etc, but then I might as well just drop the birds in the Abbey Road cover, and that would take away from my capture. I think flipping the photo and adding the lines, while may not be necessary, I think is enough and effective.

Here is the unedited photo

Backyard

Here are some photos of creatures I recently found in my backyard. I really like the bee photos, I’m not sure what kind of  bee this is but I think it’s a Carpenter Bee.  I love the bokeh in the background and the colors as well.

The spider was kind of cool. His was a huge web! Plus he hung around for about a week, this was the best shot of him.

Cute little chipmunk. Not to bright though. He tried to hide from me, I guess he’s camera shy, he trapped himself in this tight little space. Which was fine by me because I really liked how the shot is framed. But it was hard to get a good shot, he was trembling so bad, I thought  if I don’t hurry up he might have a tiny, yet deadly little heart attack.
