There's a lot to think about when you're doing wildlife photography. First you have to actually find an animal and get close enough to take a shot. Then you have to get it in the frame, in focus, and properly exposed. Once you can do that relatively consistently, you can start thinking about capturing interesting poses and behaviors, and details like making sure there is a catch light in the eye. And or course you might only have 2 or 3 seconds to do this.⠀
⠀
But I find one of the hardest things to pay attention to is the background because, well, it's in the background. You're naturally focused on the subject, but the content and quality of the background often makes or breaks an image. It has taken me several years of practice to begin to think about the background when I'm making a wildlife image - in this case I'm happy to say the soft, colorful background was on purpose! I deliberately positioned myself so the pink flowers were behind the bird and used a shallow depth of field to create a non-distracting blur of color, which helps highlight the subject. And I will readily admit that I often have no attention on the background and if I get it right, it was because I was lucky!⠀

Photo technicalities aside, these birds are incredibly beautiful when you get a close look, aren't they?!⠀

Last summer I found a Merlin nest some time after the young fledged but were still learning together. Each morning one bold sibling would take watch at the top of this spruce tree while the others spent hours trying to knock them off. More photos of sibling rivalry to come. .

15 minutes. 
Maybe! Just maybe, if I say... I cross states and jump from one city to another only with an objective of discovering my 15 minutes. Those 15 minutes when I'm myself and there's nothing in my head. When the only emotion I feel is of peace and calmness. 
Those 15 minutes are precious than any hour, any day! And no one can take it away from me. 
If I say what I just did, would you believe me?

Hey Leute!

Ich habe ja letztens noch darüber in meinem Video gesprochen, wie ihr auch mit einem Standardzoom (bzw. ohne Telezoom) schöne Tierfotos geshootet bekommt. 📸 Dabei bin ich auch darauf eingegangen, dass Fotos mit einem Telezoom leicht "langweilig" aussehen können.

Dieses Foto ist einmal das perfekte Gegenstück dazu! Denn hier sieht man sie Stärken eines Telezooms! So nah an einen schlafenden Fuchs würde man mit 70mm eher selten kommen 😂

PS: Das YouTube - Video ist in meiner Bio verlinkt 😋

Sony Alpha α7II + Tamron 70-210 f/4

Found a few impressive bighorn sheep while in the Lamar Valley of Yellowstone National Park. None of them nearly as impressive as the ones you’ll find on Wild Horse Island but still nice to capture some winter images of these majestic creatures.

বাতাসে বহিছে প্রেম, নয়নে লাগিল নেশা,
কারা যে ডাকিল পিছে, বসন্ত এসে গেছে,
মধুর অমৃত বাণী, বেলা গেল সহজেই,
মরমে উঠিল বাজি, বসন্ত এসে গেছে।।।

Wishing everyone শুভ বসন্ত পঞ্চমী, a happy সরস্বতী পূজা & বাঙালীর valentine's day...
