Oct 7: Up close and personal I went out for my walk at lunch yesterday with the intension of getting a better shot of the spider from yesterday.  I had my SB800 on the bracket so to light the subject better than the onboard flash.  I did and I got some flowers and I saw this honey bee.  I think I chased him around for quite a while but it was worth the effort.  I got really close before he flew off on the last few shots.  The sun gave me front lighting and I used the flash for side fill light.  It was a fantastic day at lunch with over 100 pictures taken.  I have never done that in 30 min before. Have a great day!
Rufous Treepie  No PP except for a bit of a crop.     Shot at Ranthambhore national park     The Rufous Treepie (Dendrocitta vagabunda) is an Asian treepie, a member of the Corvidae (crow) family. It is long tailed and has loud musical calls making it very conspicuous. It is found commonly in open scrub, agricultural areas, forests as well as urban gardens. Like other corvids it is very adaptable, omnivorous and opportunistic in feeding.    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ranthambhore_National_Park    http://www.tigerwatch.net/    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rufous_Treepie    www.javeri.net
May 22...   For the last 3 days we had a visit of 5 family members. We were very busy entertaining them so I had little time to post pictures. One of them was my youngest granddaughter, a real darling, so I shall share this picture with you
April 8, 2011-This large Eastern Carpenter bee and company have set up house on the ramp, right outside my door. Whenever I come out there they hover on either side of me and then start to chase each other and sometimes me off the ramp. I have been trying to capture them but the minute I focus on them they fly off. Not today! (Day 98:365 @sharkbayte)
Ok, I will tell you all how I came about this shot.  While in Maui I was in a gallery and saw these amazing wave pictures by Clark Little(his shots are amazing).  I borrowed a cannon Powershot with an underwater housing from a friend for my trip, so that was step one.  Then while my wife lounged on the beach I spent several hours playing in the waves trying to get a decent shot.  So step two was just spending a lot of time getting bashed around by waves trying to get the timing just right.  And I did get a lot of wierd looks from people wondering what I was doing, but it was all worth it.  I am looking forward to going back again this time with my G11 and housing to try for some more shots.
March 11...  Beach #9.   This is the last Beach-picture for now. I still need to include some summer-pictures in the series,  so I have to wait 3 month to finish this job . If you look at the horizon line you will see a number of windmills.  We have a lot of offshore windmill parks around our country and they produce 20 % of our total power consumption and this percentage is increasing from year to year
August 8, 2011-Mug Shot. I swear he has lips and mustache. This is handheld, and could be a lot better, but thought the face was interesting even with the five o'clock shadow/stubble. (220:365)  thanks for all the comments on my shot yesterday!
011911  Pelican Landing    I went on a fishing trip with my son Matthew yesterday and pelicans followed the boat back into the marina. I thought this picture was fitting today since our trip has come to an end and we are flying back home late this afternoon.
20.03.10 - Spring is Springing  I actually took this on St Patrick's Day, but I've been working on it this evening in honour of the first day of Spring tomorrow. My last few Dailies have been a bit monochrome in different ways, so this is a good antidote to them too.  There are a few more photos of these spectacular crocuses here;   http://www.lightanddreamsphotography.com/Nature/THE-DAWBER-GARDEN/5370737_F9Haj#812707739_Qe7zv
The Eyes  Thu. November 6, 2008 (Day 206)    I'm still sorting some files from  photo shoot last weekend, and I think this one deserve the spot.     I took some pics today but not too crazy about them.   They only deserve to be in the  Alternate gallery.    Hmm... I need a good rest tonight. Have a good evening all.
The will to grow where the light is - Jun 1 2009  Flowers and plants can do amazing things... they'll try to reach the light no matter what! Hope you all had some sunlight today (I had way too much again... one never learns!)  Hope to catch up with you guys and gals very soon!

Day 26 - A lioness photographed last spring in a wildlife park.
April 28    Yes....I missed uploading a DP for yesterday!  By the time we finished that 24 hrs. of frivilous fun in the desert area near Ridgecrest (California), I was too tired to tend to my DP; I'm admitting it!!   Had another outstanding day today; ending our trip by arriving in our own little hometown at sunset!  This is what we were watching while driving the last couple of miles down the highway!  SPECTACULAR!!  What a "welcome home"!   Took the first available offramp in order to catch this shot!!  (Tough choice, though!  This was right after a double rainbow which we also pulled over for!!)    We did spend some discussion as to how difficult it was going to be to choose a DP for yesterday, and today!!  Over the next several days, I will be using shots from this trip as DP's, as I add photos to the gallery.
