Week 37 – Becky


Do you mind? I am eating lunch.

Did not realize at the time I shot the spider that it was eating a smaller insect.  Lucky me! Shot with m Nikon D300s and 105mm lens.  Converted it to black and white for something different.  My settings were f3.5, 1/200sec, iso400.


Week 37 – Robin



Here is another wild iguana sunning himself on a rock near a pond. He looked around so I could take photo of his pretty face. 🙂  I noticed that they like grass. They probably help the groundskeepers of the park.

Taken with a Canon 6D and 100mm f/2.8 macro lens. Settings were 1/1600s, f/3.5, ISO 100.

The Big One That Didn’t Get Away

This poor Anhinga eyes were bigger than his stomach. He was attempting to swallow this fish, but he was having a very difficult time of it. Would get it part way down and then bring it back up, dip it in the water to make it more slippery, and try to swallow it again. We watched him for several minutes and then moved on. Don’t know if he ever got it all the way down.

Settings were ISO 100, f/8, 1/80 sec at 300mm (70-300mm).



Week 36 – Becky


Bathing Beauty

Went on a photo club field trip with my girlfriends to Japanese gardens.  They had these iguanas roaming free.  They came in bright yellow and green.  It was really cool to see.  Shot with my Nikon D300s.  Settings were f4,1/640sec,iso400 and 105mm.  Boost the contrast and sharpened so the lizard stood out.


Week 35 – Becky


Tennessee Sunset

Went to Tennessee to see the Fall colors.  Unfortunately, we did not see much in the way of fall colors, but we had a great time in the cabin, hiking and watching the sun set from our balcony.  Shot with Olympus TG4.  Settings were f/5, 1/400sec, ISO100, 10mm and set on sunset mode.  Boosted the contrast in Photoshop.
