The pundits say there is always something to photograph but we all have days where we find nothing to shoot. It might be because we have too much familiarity with the scene or it’s one of those days when our heart is not in our photography. I’m always hopeful that if I slow down a bit I will find something worth a second look.

The black and white emphasizes the ripples. The ripples add movement and meaning to the photo, without them it’s just a photo of a mallard. Since I began doing more nature photography, one of my goals has been to make my photographs have a bit of style, a bit of art and hence more interesting. It is not always easy to do.

Photography is quite often about experimenting to find a new style, to see something differently, and even to transform it. While I avoid the latter, the other two are fair game. What makes the exploration more interesting in nature is that almost everything you shoot is ephemeral and changes over time, sometimes a short period of time.

I remember when the first wigeons visited my favourite nature reserve. The photographers chased them all over the place. Now it’s pretty normal to see a few couples in the fall and almost always in nice light and coloured water.

Lilies are often covered in bugs and debris and thus not always photogenic. Frequently you think you have a clean shot only to look later and see the problems. So I always think good lily shots are lucky shots.

Nuthatch (Two Photographs)

Leaving aside the fact that one should be very careful what one feeds to birds and whether feeding them at all is a good idea, I would also advise against feeding a bird with a sword like beak, out of your palm. But people do feed nuthatches.

Photography is all about light. Finding a subject where it and the light are the only focus is rare. I believe I have come close in these shots. Given a choice I would like to take more of these contrasty shots with different plants and flowers.
