"Morning Sun"
Magical flight
Sunlight - I had to wait that the sun settle a bit before shooting this one. I wanted the tree to glow. Cheers - JY
I waited for 6 months for the sun to go down in the midle of the road. Fortunately it did not rain that day. I brought a boy with me to wave good night to the sun.  Suddenly I saw the birds comming from the left, and got them in "the decive moment".
I arrived there in time to catch a little fog for a moodier image.  You can see the Herons nest in the trees. They are pretty far  away. There is a big fence in front of all this so we can't get that close.
2-1: Saturday evening we had quite a nice sunset, so I took a walk along the Poudre trail near Prospect street hoping to find some good views. I found this waterfall like thing.

While trying to capture some ants and aphids in my garden, I noticed this little spider (about a half inch across) with a large fly.  The spider was already sucking the insides out of the fly, which was already dead or paralyzed.  I managed to bring this pair into the house, where I experimented with a number of different lighting arrangements...trying to get the details of the spider, while maintaining a good dof.  It was very difficult and I never succeeded in getting the kind of sharpness and clarity that I wanted.  However, I think the subject is sufficiently interesting to use one of these images for my daily.  The other images from this effort are in my macro gallery (under the "other" category).  I think for this shot, you should probably view it in the original size.  The whole time I was shooting this the spider was moving around on the white paper.  Thanks for your kind comments on my iris pic today.  There were a lot of wonderful images posted today.  By the way, has anyone heard from Dave Dedman?  I haven't seen anything of his in a while and I know he had pneumonia.  I sure hope he's ok.  If some of you are communicating with him, give him my best wishes.
2-22: This is another from a sunset a few weeks ago. I like this one because as you look at the clouds from west to east you can see the color vary from more orange to more pink
3-13: All work and no play makes Steve a dull boy - I finally got out for some pictures Thursday evening. It was very overcast and I didn't think there would be much of a sunset but it ended up being very nice! This was taken at Running Deer natural area. Fort collins comes up with wierd names for some of it's natural areas.
The Dance
Paradise Beach  Pondicherry, India    ADDED IN RESPONSE TO COMMENTS:   These are stray dogs and not wild as they grow up amongst people. A few of them could be 'ferocious' but most co-exist very peacefully with street people.   Majority of the stray dogs in India adapt to their neighbourhood very easily, in most cases thanks to the friendly people in the locality. While there is a system in place to keep a check on strays, often their extended families (read people) jump to the defense of their friendly, harmless four legged pals.    more pics:  http://Hershy.smugmug.com/gallery/3951305_mw7Dp/1/289184725_zpLUc    travel and other info on Pondicherry  http://tourism.pondicherry.gov.in/
6-7-12. Common Green Darner Dragonfly (female). Gainesville, Florida. 2012.  I spent the day having very close encounters with this incredibly beautiful and docile common green darner dragonfly. She let me put the lens inches from her head and didn't fly away when I moved a vine she was sitting on. I got more than enough nice pictures! If you're interested, you can see some of them in this smugmug album: http://kvedisonnaturephotos.smugmug.com/Animals/Dragonflies
Sunrise in Big Bend National Park in Texas; I took this shot on our recent trip to Big Bend.  There were a number of lovely sunrises while we were there, but I think this one is my favorite.  Another week has flown by and Easter is almost upon us.  Hope you are able to do something enjoyable this weekend.  I'm off to bed as soon as I post this.  Thanks, everyone, who commented on my shot of the green heron with its damselfly.  It is really gratifying to get such nice comments from such a terrific bunch of photographers.  I am constantly amazed by the talent here on smugmug.
