Unlike many other birds I see the Carolina Wren often before I hear its call. Living among the lower branches and often perched on stumps this tiny being is always a lovely sight. They build their nest on branches 3-6 ft off the ground, in stumps and in tree holes. A thicket seems to be a perfect home for this little beauty.
As mentioned in my previous blog posting when I rushed out to see the eclipse my tripod did not follow me. An unsteady camera with big lens pointed skyward and low aperture can create a serious of unusual effects. These are my favorite unexpected images.
I am a child of the moon and have been lucky to witness many of her magical events. On this night however a serious of unfortunate events lead me to a mad scramble whose result was forgetting my tripod. I was thankful to get anything which resembled the moon. Tomorrow I will share the avanguard versions of my moon photography.
