Spring Time Re-visited
I was tooling around in Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo Ultimate 12 today, and stumbled upon some very interesting pictures that I took this past spring and, for whatever reason…I just never processed them to share.
So I did that today…and here they are!
These two Mallard Drakes were battling each other, each vying for the attention of a single female, who sat idly by on the shore preening herself, as if the commotion wasn’t happening. She was good at playing coy, I can tell you. And these Drakes were ready to kill each other for her attentions…
This gull flew back and forth in front of me several times from only a few yards away, right at eye level. I can’t tell if he was interested in me, or something in the water, but he certainly had no problem presenting me with numerous opportunities for a good photo.
This gull just soared overhead for several minutes. Now…I’m fairly proud of this shot. See…this was taken using a 150mm lens, which, for in-flight bird shots…is NOT a big enough lens. I managed to get this guy perfectly in the frame. This one is not cropped. It came out of the camera with this composition, and I think it is one of my best flight shots to date. Can’t fathom what possessed me to pass on processing it before.
So that’s about it for now. I found a few interesting images from this past spring that I’m going to play with. If I find anything good…you’ll be the first to know about it.
Thanks for stopping by!
