Out of my comfort zone: Street photography is a type of photography that features subjects in candid situations within public places.

Wild Bird Wednesday #213-Osprey

Wild Bird Wednesday

Mid-August, we wandered some back roads along the Rappahannock River on our way home after a weekend with family. The Osprey perched on this limb where it had a literal bird’s-eye view of the river. Evening approached, time to look for a little something for dinner, and fish was on the menu. 

The camera lens extended into digital zoom, and I shot from inside the car, elbows anchored on the door to serve as a tripod. Frame after frame, I couldn’t get a clear shot. I finally realized the car’s idle caused enough vibration to interfere with clarity. Hubby shut off the engine, I got this shot, and called it a day.

Below is one of about a bazillion reasons (slight exaggeration) to stay inside the car. It’s yellow-fly season, and those little buggers bite! On vacation a couple years ago, I had a run-in with them. Apparently, I tasted a lot better than hubby. They drew blood! We didn’t stay on that beach long.

This week we are looking for things that start with C, week’s favorite, and unique perspective.

The juvenile Osprey awaiting dinner at sunset is my unique perspective.

Here’s my recently-created Cozy Corner, with a chair that rocks and swivels. I have more items to add to the shelves.

My favorite this week is another visit from the Monarch Butterfly. I’m glad it came to the bird-feeder pole so I could get a better shot than last week. I don’t know what it hoped to find there, so I assume it stopped by for the photo op.
