Spring is in the air.

As some of you know, one of my favorite subjects to photograph is flowers.  Living in Florida we only have a short window of time before it gets too hot and nothing will grow.  I am loving the garden centers right now with their tulips and dahlias.  Also making many trips to the Naples Botanical Gardens.  In March I will travel to Macon, Georgia for their cherry blossom festival.  So without further ado here are some of my favorites,

Photographing Birds

Living in SW Florida there are many species of beautiful shore birds to photograph.

 Photographing birds in flight can be a challenge in capturing crisp images.  It is best to shoot in manual mode with a fast shutter speed to “freeze” the bird’s wings in your photo.   Aperture should be set around f/7.1 or f/8.  And last you want to have as low of ISO as the light will allow to avoid digital noise.

  I also love to photograph static portrait shots of birds and find them just as pleasing.

Burrowing Owls can be found in Cape Coral, Florida. They are found in roped-off areas around the city. I am lucky that a friend of mine has a burrow right down the street from her.   Most roped-off areas have a white T-shaped perch for the owls.

Enjoy my entire collection of Florida Birds on my website. Florida Birds
