I was looking through my repertoire and realised that I had a lot of animal shots, some because I had cats and they are easy prey for cute shots, but also because they don’t away when you point a camera at them!
“Hairy Cow”- 2011
I took this shot in Sterling, Scotland, we took a detour and stopped on a beautiful road to take some shots of the scenery, as I look to my right a massive and I mean massive cow approached me. Other than being scared, I figured it was more curious than dangerous and took some shots. I loved his/her hair and the vibrant colour. I think of that day and smile.
“Leg Up”- 2016
I’ve come to realise I’ve taken a lot of bird pics in my time, but if you’d ask me, I would have thought otherwise. I took a lot of shot of the ducks at our local park, but I was looking for one that stood out and this one certainly did so!
“Serious Star”- 2016
Swoon, my big-hearted, lovable cat- she was scared of her own shadow, but such a beautiful heart. I miss my cuddle bug.
“White Swan”- 2018
While taking a walk last summer, I came across this majestic swan, because is there really any other way to describe swans? I had better shots of the actual swan, but I loved how I caught the water dripping from its beak.
“The Watcher”- 2016
I have to admit, I don’t know how I spotted this little one peaking out of bushes, but I was glad I did!
“Ostrich Plumage”- 2016
I have to say that this is one of my absolute favourite shots, it may not be much to really look at, but I survived being attacked by an ostrich, in low light and still managed to get this macro shot. A win on all counts. I was also pleasantly surprised by the detail in the feathers, sometimes things look so different when you just look closer.
“Resting Butterfly”- 2016
I really love capturing butterflies, but sometimes they can be hard to catch if you don’t have your settings locked in, and I will fully admit to throwing it on auto in to not miss the shot. Meh, don’t judge.
“Blue Jay”- 2016
This shot was a scramble to get, I was actually looking out of my balcony window when I spotted the blue jay land in the tree outside the window. I slowly grabbed my camera and hoped my shuffling didn’t scare it off before I managed to get the shot. I was very satisfied when I saw how in focus I managed to get it!
