Burrowing owl alighted down at the bush right in front of me... luckily I was ready :-)

(Burhinus grallarius) In my garden, trying to hide from me.

Now first up I have to tell you, I am afraid of birds and all my life they have frightened the living shit out of me.

I'm not sure why or when it actually started it's just as far back as I can remember my parents insisted visiting every bird park in Australia and I would hide under mum's skirt crying my little eyes out, terrified.

 

So birds aren't my thing but as I have gotten older I have tried to shake this fear/phobia ....I can now touch a feather and can easily walk through loads of chickens just as long as they don't come near me.

 

Also if you follow Critter's page you will know I feed every bird in the area. So you could say my fear is easing.

 

So it surprises me that I am fascinated with birds and their behaviour.

 

This little guy is at my local Zoo and I make a point of visiting him each time because I think he is gorgeous. I don't want to go near him or touch him but he intrigues me.

I have never seen one before so the zoo has introduced me to the the bush stone curlew and to me he is mysterious.

 

Here's some info if you're interested......

These birds like to congregate in small groups, on the ground. When alerted they will walk away very slowly, freeze in position, or just lay down on the ground. They will fly away only when really pressed. About knee height, when standing.

I spotted this little flower on my walk this morning.

The gap in the tree canopy at the Thurra River Campground looked more like a bush skylight at Point Hicks Victoria, Australia.

It is after a long absence to photograph a flower. When I take a flower, I quiet a feeling and I stop breath and press the shutter. When wind does not stop, I may not breathe very much.

On October 9, 2014 in Inokashira park.

花を撮影するのは久し振りです。 花を撮る時には気持ちを静めて、息を止めてシャッターを切ります。風が止まない時、ぼくはあまり呼吸していないかもしれません。

This fella is often mistaken as a common red grasshopper. In American English as katydids. Found this one in Venus Drive. The adults are green-brown in color. Their antennae are about 5cm long!

Hope you all had a great Christmas, looking forwards to the new year yet?

Being photo bombed by a Plover, while taking a bath.

I paused here for 10 - 15 minutes, only moving a few feet back and forth to position myself for photos. In this time I saw Bush Tits, Song Sparrow, Chickadees, Common Yellowthroat, Black-Headed Grosbeak, Cedar Waxwing, Anna's Hummingbird, European Starlings, Red Wing Blackbird and a Bald Eagle high overhead. (not all were cooperative in having their photo taken)

I liked this lone bush along the lake shore in the calm early morning light.

The Thick-Tailed Bush-baby is a small, tree-dwelling primate, with child-like cries, and is active by night. They are capable of leaps of remarkable distance between trees. At dusk groups disperse to feed alone while foraging for insects.

To witness this, is a privilege, not shared by many.

many people have asked for a tutorial on the post-processing of this shot, which was actually very minimal..... so here goes:

 

- first of all, the photo was taken in a very soft light situation. since it was outdoors and a very sunny day in marrakech, i waited for some clouds to cover the sun to avoid harsh contrast and shadows, which would have ruined the feel of this shot.

 

- during post processing i just increased the saturation a bit to bring out the colors a little more, and used the "unsharp filter" to bring out the texture in the wall.

 

- then i added some light and shadows by using a levels adjustment layer and using a graduated neutral density filter on the mask.

 

that's it. simple but effective :-)
