Friday Morning Sightings

.

.

This was the first morning I have seen two Peregrine Falcons. They chased each other a couple times. Too far away for pictures but cool to watch.

The Great Blue Heron in the picture above caught an eel. First time I have seen one in the Tennessee River. Caught a lot of them growing up in PA.

Good Timing

Good timing sure helps. Yesterday was one of those days where my timing was pretty good. To be in the right spot when the critters are active. There are a lot of factors that come in to aiding in good timing. A mix of patience, persistence, blended with a little knowledge of species. Luck certainly plays a role. When focused one gets a feeling of intuition.

Repetition may be boring but it is probably the best aid in good timing. Like an athlete honing his hand eye coordination. After a while it becomes natural. Offering that feeling of connection…

Experimenting In Black And White

Experimented with black and white photography through the middle of the morning. Did not like any of the pics except one of a flicker. Still it was a good learning exercise.One I doubt I will repeat. For me shooting black and white is taking technology backwards. Sure I have seen plenty of black and white stuff I like. It just does not work for me to do at the present time. If your heart ain’t in it your are bound to fail.

At the end of my shooting for the day switched back to color. Caught the male eagle bringing in a fish to the nest at the swap out. The fish head was missing. I assume the male had eaten the head. The part they usually eat first. The female devoured the fish as fast as I ever saw. Then she flew off and the male settled down on the eggs. Still it was a good day to be out…
