The Grasshopper and the Peacock

We went for a drive and found ourselves at Forever Florida in St Cloud. Always some peacocks around the entrance. This one must be beginning to grow his beautiful tail feathers. I am sure the protein in this big grasshopper will be beneficial!

Used Canon 7D Mark II and EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM at 200mm. 1/800 sec; f/2.8; ISO 100.

Crown Flash Cloud


Wow, Judy!!…Me too!! I have the same photo a little closer up! LOL! Used a Nikon P900 zoomed in some. I also dialed up the color some and sharpened a little. This may be called a Crown Flash cloud and it had “leaping sundogs”. Did you see them? It was out of this world!! Luckily I took some video not knowing what I had until I looked it up. Here is the video https://youtu.be/SpmlkX6tWpI I wish I had a better white balance in the video, but you can see the leaping sundogs.

Hangover

Hangover


Been trying to grow things since I have a lot more time at home. I am just a beginner at it. This flower looks sad, but it has some beauty.

Used Canon 6D and Lensbaby Composer Pro II and a Sweet Optic 35. Not too much editing as the Lensbaby setup seems to create in camera magic.

FlyinthePink

In the Pink

For my birthday this year I got a Lensbaby Composer Pro II and a Sweet Optic 35. I have been inspired by Anita Kram’s work and want to awaken my creative side again. 🙂

The Lensbaby is a challenge and a half to get right with manual focus but this optic is very sharp and I was blown away at the quality! I used a macro converter in this shot and my Canon 6D. I was amazed that I got the fly in focus. 😀

BellaintheWoods

NWG’s been taking a break… Time to post again.
This is Bella my brother’s German Shepherd. Sadly Bella passed away very recently. My brother and his wife also sold their home and moved to a smaller home with less property to take care of.

I loved this beautiful 92 acre property in Anthony, Florida with prairie, ponds and most of all the dreamy oak tree forests. Bella always stayed by my side when I took walks through the property as if she was my guardian. I will miss her, the good times with family and my walks through the woods.

The Laugher – Charadra deridens

My husband found this strange looking caterpillar floating on a fake lily pad in our little goldfish pond. He is a little wet but safe now. 🙂 He has one of the coolest faces I have ever seen… so I focused on that. Sunglasses and a smile!

Here is some more information about the species of moth—> The Laugher Charadra deridens

Used the Olympus TG-4 on Microscope mode.
