Feather Detail

This is a little macro study (pun intended) of a feather I photographed. I liked the flow of the veins of the feather along with the interplay of the yellow spots. I used a Canon 50mm F-2.5 lens for the shot. (Click on this or any of my images to see an enlarged version)

In celebration of reaching 10,000 followers to my blog, I’m posting one of my favorite subjects in nature, a dragonfly. I’m looking forward to Spring and Summer when I’ll be able to see more of these beautiful creatures in their varying colors and patterns. Thanks so much to all for your continued interest in my blog as I attempt to convey some of the beauty and wonders in nature to you!

Water Abstract

I decided to create a macro image of tiny water droplets with a colorful backdrop in this photograph. I used a Canon 50mm F-2.5 Macro lens with more of a lower angle to add dimension to the water drops.

 

Peacock Colors

I’ve been meaning to photograph these peacock feathers for some time now and finally did today. I used a Canon 50mm Macro F-2.5 lens to get in close to the subject and reveal the details along with the colorful patterns.

Here is the final shot of this series of photos from the colorful sunset that I recently photographed along the shores of Lake Michigan at Grand Haven State Park. The pier and lighthouse structures give a sense of scale to the scene. Have a happy Thanksgiving!

 

Forest Floor in Autumn

I noticed this Oak leaf resting on some green moss today while walking through a wooded area in Muskegon, Michigan. The intricate veins throughout the leaf structure looked interesting to me. This particular example must have fallen recently as it appeared more fresh than the surrounding leaves.

Eye of the Hawk

I find that looking through my photography files from time to time can unveil some hidden treasures. I took this photo about 2 years ago of a Red Tailed Hawk at a local nature center. I remember it being a sunny day which allowed for some nice lighting and great detail of the bird of prey. (Click on this or any of my photos for a more detailed image)

I found this image in my files of an owl I photographed last year just in time to post for Halloween :) Hopefully it didn’t scare you too much, lol.  (Click on this or any of my photographs to see a more detailed image)

 

Autumn Glory

Autumn is one of my favorite times of year, in large part due to the beautiful colors that seemingly explode from the trees. I decided to focus on a more detailed photo of a leaf and found it interesting to add a layered look to the image by positioning the angle of view to show another leaf behind the one in the foreground.

Transformation

I noticed this milkweed seedpod yesterday in a Southwest, Michigan wetland area. The cotton-like material was blowing in the wind with seeds suspended among the strands. Eventually they will drift away one by one, floating off until they come to rest to create new growth. (click on this or any of my images to see a larger more detailed view)
