Clown   Thanks for your comments on my rodeo steer wrangling shot.  Hope everyone is hanging in there with all the bitter winter weather and storms.  It was cold even in the house today; the heat has trouble keeping up when the temps are so frigid.
Monkey with baby (Pic 187 2nd year)  D300 17-55 2.8 at ISO400 f9 1/100    There were quite a few monkeys at Dambulla (Sri Lanka) rock temple. This mother was eating from a mango peel. In between she would feed the baby too. It's always a risk to go close to any animal who has a younger one nearby so I had to keep a bit of a distance and grab a few shots in a rush.     www.javeri.net
Sep.18,2006  An apple a day..  Getting closer to what I want. Thus far I thought the apple being soft was due to water distortion and I kept increasing the f-stops to get it all in focus. Turns out it's plain old motion blur. The moment I upped the shutter speed to 1/1250s it came nicely into focus.

05/10/11 - Nimue the Barred Owl  Another rescue bird from the Wildlife Rescue Center in Sanford that we saw at Noah's Landing  in Coats, NC on Sunday.  Last year I took pictures of Ophelia the Barred Owl, but this year Nimue was onsite instead.  LOVE those eyes!    Link to the Noah's Landing gallery:  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Noahs-Landing/Noahs-Landing-050811/16970760_jTvbsT#1283151623_d2tLKHr  Thank you so much for your reception to the red-tailed hawk shot from yesterday.  It's such a privilege to get to see and take pics of the rescue birds.    If you missed the bluebird pics I posted on Facebook yesterday, you might want to check out these shots of a juvenile being fed by his mom and dad:  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Nature/May-2011/16865229_xX2Jk5#1283721848_4V9ZGhF and:  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Nature/May-2011/16865229_xX2Jk5#1283725809_gwTTKD7  HAGD, Maryann
3rd year Pic 325 - Sep 07 2011  Frisky  Frisky is the new entrant at my cousin's house in Ahmedabad. This was shot in July when he was about 4 months old. A thoroughly lovable chap, he lives up to his name!  Can't wait to make another trip to meet him!!   Abad trip July 2011

"76 takes and Phhewwww....."   I have been planning to take a shot of spalsh for a while and today was the day. Though I didn't achieve the kind of shot I wanted to take , I felt this shot was decent enough . I took this shot near my kitchen window for good lighting and not sure if it's a good idea for such shots.I felt I need to practice these water shots to get good at accuracy. I will continue this experiment sometime in future. For now .oohoo, this is it :-)  Have a happy sunday everyone !

4/4/11 - Stare way to....!  -  Taken whilst out for an evening stroll around Greetwell Hollow with my niece and Pip.  This is a 4 shot stitch with a touch of cloning around the edges/corners and just a tweak to levels. Probably the most dramatic sunset I've ever caught. view as large as your screen lets you! A shot with the quarry area taken minutes before this can be seen here  http://nixpixme.smugmug.com/Landscapes/Landscapes-locations-and-light/13299714_nVHpT/#1239240939_yxmJ2 My first try at stitching these shot can be seen http://nixpixme.smugmug.com/Landscapes/Landscapes-locations-and-light/13299714_nVHpT/#1240017688_Y8qWq
May 10, 2011-Coming out of it's shell.  I never actually seen this stage and thought it was cool to see it as it was actually happening. (Day 130:365 @sharkbayte)
May 8, 2009 - "A Distant Scene" - My wife captured these wonderfully textured arches funneling to a mini scene in the distance.

"Photo 365"        Well,I am little nervous as this is my first SP in dailies and equally excited as I completed one year with my Daily Showcase. I also couldn't get the results as I wanted with my SP due to bad lighting, focus and other issues. I gave a thought for a while before posting but going ahead and finally posting one of the many shots I tried.     A BIG thank you to everyone personally in the daily community who encouraged me with many wonderful comments and valuable suggestions all year round. I wasn't keen on continuing after 2-3 months of posting the dailies due to lack of time , but I kept going just because of everyone's support in the daily community.    I would be stepping into my 2nd year of dailies with a new gallery  and I hope I will take wonderful shots and equally enjoy more beautiful pictures in the daily community posted by everyone of you in days to come.    Thank you everyone !          When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs.  When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.  ~Ansel Adams

Mammatus clouds at sunset, just after the storm, which had included some hail.  Mammatus clouds seem to be relatively rare and usually occur in association with fairly severe storms.  I've only seen them a few times and this is the first opportunity I've had to capture them in a photo.  It was nice that they occurred as the sun was setting.  I do appreciate all the comments on my shot of the clematis bud.  You folks are great!
1/18/13 - Great horned owl  Thanks so much for your comments on my shot of the coyote.  What an amazing variety of shots today on smugmug!  I really enjoyed browsing through them.  You guys sure know how to keep me inspired!
