You cannot help but smile watching goldfinches search for food in the bushes. There is an intensity to their movement. I found this bird late in the summer before its migration south for the winter.

The way these dragonflies have landed illustrates how delicate and light they are. I have seen naturalists capture them and hold them in their hand before letting them go again, a very delicate manoeuvre. In photographic terms the position of the insects says something about them and that’s a story.

An important component of photography is the capturing of light. It’s also about framing, subject, texture, colour etc. I think it’s important to avoid catch phrases like, it’s all about the light and focus on bringing together the technology, the subject and your own sense of the art. Here light plays a bigger role and makes for a better picture.

This was one very nice butterfly, and I took over sixty shots (more to come). It was late in the season and as you can tell from the last photo its wings had been damaged, a sure sign of age in a butterfly.

I was taking a photograph of the duck against the flotsam, thinking it was interesting. The duck was distracted by my presence and the turtle was getting closer. I figured I should leave not wanting to be part of any subsequent problems. When I processed the photograph in black and white I gave it a sort of old time contrasty look.

On a walk that led me into a kind of industrial park, I found this bit of nature. I thought it would look good as a black and white photograph, but it turns out the colour, after a little work, was not so bad either.

I am guilty of anthropomorphism, applying human emotions to animals. It makes things a touch more fun. If photography wasn’t fun you would not find me behind a camera. I am hoping some opportunities for photography open up this summer, but I am not holding my breath.
