SpoonfulOSugar posted a blog entry in Adventures with a Ladybird Herd - and other tales from the NorthIt was an absolutely gorgeous afternoon - temperatures in the upper 70s, a breeze, clouds in the sky but not too many. So I spent some time under the crabapple tree. It was just lovely. The doves sat on the wire and cooed for me. And one by one, the overlords came to visit. (Sometimes in groups, sometimes for a minute, sometimes longer.) And so I got a glamour shot of the Hunting Overlord. And a few not as glamorous. I got a truly lovely shot of the Long-Haired Overlord. Demon is feeling better and consented to a number of shots. And the elusive Fourth? She doesn't believe in photographs!
SpoonfulOSugar posted a blog entry in Adventures with a Ladybird Herd - and other tales from the NorthIt's definitely not easy when your subjects are independent li'l cusses which move very quickly. I was out early doing chores the other morning, when a neighbor kitten came to visit. He's a cutie pie and *very* curious. So, since I was tired and taking a break, I thought I'd try to get some shots of him. Here he is investigating the Jerusalem artichoke. Now, to be fair, I have trouble shooting outside in bright light because the polarization on my glasses interferes with the screen on the camera. But this shot is just bad: So I tried again. Something's in focus - but it's not the kitten. "Don't give up!" I said to myself. "You can get something spectacular!" Unfortunately, my subject was tired of posing. That's why I prefer to photograph flowers!
