Over the holidays my son and I went kayaking. It is so much fun. I really need to do it more often. Saw three 6′ gators sunning on the banks and tons of painted turtles. Good times. Shot with IPhone6.
While examining our gardenia I noticed this Chryalis. Checked it out online and found it to belong to the Gulf Fritillary butterfly. It was so cool to watch it move. Maybe I will get lucky and catch it coming out. Shot with the Olympus TG4 on microscope mode zoomed in. Settings were f4.9,1/100sec/18mm/iso800.
These spider’s web blended in well with the surroundings. I did not realize there was a spider there until I positioned myself at a different angle. I am in a black and white mood it seems. This is the third black and white photo I have submitted. I boost the contrast using curves in Photoshop, sharpened, converted B/W. Shot with the Olympus TG4. settings f4.9, 1/400sec, iso250, 18mm.
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.
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.
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.
I never get tired seeing the Anole’s. Especially when they change their color to green to hide from you. They are so delicate. Shot with Olympus TG-4. Settings were f4.9, 1/50sec, ISO1600, 18mm.
