Anatomy of an Eagle fly-by catch

Anna Hummingbird

Checking my new lens out when this little guy flew up and checked it out too. Pentax K-5, DA*50-135/2.8 at 135/2.8, 1/640 ISO-100. This guy is small but very fierce.

Great Blue Emu

The weirdest Emu I have ever seen.

Silky Dahlia

Tested an old 35-105/3.5 macro lens and really loved how the colors and textures turned out. Experimenting with DOF and focus. This is a great flower to shoot all the way through fall.

Hello my Scrumptious

I think she thought I was a mouse and wanted to eat me.

White Out

White-out at Hurricane Ridge, WA in Olympic National Park. Elevation 5200′ or 1585m. Notice the two people in the bottom right of the image. Pentax K-5, DA* 50-135/2.8 @ 95/13, 1/80, ISO-100

Pardon, but do you happen to have an apple.

This guy was ready to talk! He had a personality and seemed to be wanting to tell me something.

Reaching for the Heavens

Here Spider Spider

Cardinal Meadowhawk Dragonfly has front leg on web trying to lure spider out of hiding.

Montana Star Swirl

Pentax K-5, 15/4 @ f/4, ISO 100, exposure 27min. Notice single star not swirling between trees on left about 2/3 of the way down. Satellite maybe? Tree’s lit by campfire.
