Spring is the Season of Romance

Uncategorized

Today I did some bird photography in the woods at the Mariners’ Museum located in Newport News, VA.  Spring is a season of romance.  Birds are doing their mating rituals as well as other creatures like this pair of snakes. These snakes were about 6 feet from me. 

The lesson I learned when looking up for our feathery friends, be cautious where you stand and step.  The moral of this story is look up, look down and know what is all around.

Photo shot with a Sony A77II, Sony lens 70-400mm, ISO 1600, 160mm, f/5.6 at 1/800 sec.

Haiku: Black, White, and Color

Black and white alone
is without red blue and yellow,
solely shades of grey

Are your days cloudy?
Let the sun through with bright hues,
Colors burst with joy

Paint a cheerful life,
mix the red blue and yellow,
live a blended life
