People who have viewed my work always comment or ask, how much time do you spend out and about. It must take you hours to get some of these shots.
Those of you who follow regularly will know what I mean. Some shots I even ask myself, how was I so lucky to obtain this.
I do spend hours out and about, sometimes I even spend the whole day out and about. Believe it or not somtimes I only travel the back yard. Other times I travel a couple hundred miles on a round trip. Whether walking in the vack yard or driving through the wilderness, I usually have a subject matter in mind. All I have to do is find it. What else I happen to see along the way is bonus.
My only problem is deciding which shot to post. I have to many to choose from.
On this particualr drive I saw hundreds of these butterflies on thistles. I also saw a cow and calf moose on the road (no pic). I also followed a bull moose down the bushl road. (again no pic, I had my 400 mm lens on and he was to close. Right beside the passenger window). On this trip just yesterday I have 109 pics to choose from. This particular shot is taken from about 20 feet away with my 400mm lens. That is why the dof is so narrow. I even take my camera to work with me. You never know when and what you might see.
Thank you for visiting my site. I consider myself to be lucky living where I do. Everyday I wake up to a wealth of interesting visual scenarios. Most of my pictures are Wildlife and Nature taken from around the area. The area specifically being Fort Frances Ontario on beautiful Rainy Lake. Feel free to comment on what you see. I look forward to hearing from you. If you like what you see, please rate it. Better yet, bookmark the site and drop back often. I will be posting daily.
