The Haunted Maze will be on sale for $.99 until midnight tonight. This is my way of thanking all the readers who have supported me and my writing. Without you guys, there’s no point in writing! 🙂
The next one is of a limpkin eating a snail. I watched him poke around in the water for several minutes while he extracted it. The empty shell is to the right. The lighting was not great, but post-processing made it clearer.
I love this next shot. The same morning I took the first photo, I spotted this beautiful spider web in the field adjoining R’s property. No one lives there, so creatures remain undisturbed. I never spotted the spider though. Notice the hole in the center of the web.
Last, we’re going to do a before/after because the change is so impressive. I was sitting in the lanai doing final edits on The Haunted Maze when I spotted this osprey. He flew left to right over the canal, and I saw instantly he had something in his claws.
I grabbed the camera, ran outside, and took half a dozen photos. He knew I was there, and he did fly off but not before I captured him with his prize. He had caught a good meal. 🙂
The sun was just above the trees and behind the bird, which makes for a crappy photo, as you can see. It’s washed out and flat, but the composition is good, so I spent some time on it.
What a beauty he is! I’ve seen him flying over the canal every morning for a couple weeks. How nice of him to sit in the dead tree for a couple minutes so I could get pics of him. 🙂
I’ve purchased a new camera! It’s been a few years, and after doing my research and looking at galleries, I decided to move to the Canon SX50 IS. It should be here Tuesday. It has a whopping 1280 zoom, which should assist me in getting closer to the wildlife. I’m also getting a new tripod (mine broke a while back) and a few screw-on lenses. One of them will be of particular help when shooting in bright light.
I’m so excited! New cameras always make me want to seek out new subject matter.
See y’all Friday. Have a great week.
