A collection of my photos of flora and fauna, and maybe now and then,
something else that catches my attention and just will not let go.
Maybe even with little verbage, which is pretty hard for this gal.
I have tried at just about every zoo for a photo of the sweet ever moving seahorse. I have failed several times. They are usually shown in dark aquarium buildings. And, did I say, they are EVER MOVING!! Even when "resting" sometimes hooked onto the flora with those tails, they are moving, swaying to and fro.
When we visited the Tampa Lowry Zoo I tried again. I took 13 photos, these two turned out the best I have done yet. Both photos have been sharpened during the editing process.
You can see this little fella (or gal) is clearly hooked onto the flora (not sure if that is real live flora or not):
Friend Barbara requested elephant photos. So, I tried. There are 6 photos here, there are at least that many that are out of focus. The elephants were somewhere between 500 and 750 feet away, that being the best guestimate of Man's.
Part of the herd, 3 adults and one very small baby.
There are actually two babies in this photo, one to the left, the other hiding behind mom about the middle.
Baby, Sony Too zoomed, danged pole!
One of the adults.
Same baby as above, I can tell by the mud on it's ear. Having a spot of grass/hay/straw.
As always I shot way too many photos and as always, many of them are crummy. Shooting animals is a challenge.
This is the clouded leopard. It is from Southeast Asia. Signage at the zoo said this cat actually purrs like a smaller cats.
Photo taken from 30 or 40 feet (or more), through fencing. The while lines down the sides of the face are the fence. I decided to go for face shots on many of the creatures rather than have photos with more fence than animals.
I have found I am having so much fun with the camera that there are many more photos taken than will fit on my blog, Reflections From the Fence.
I post flora and fauna photos here. One subject a day, a flora and fauna 365 project. I managed to get past the first 365 and started the second year of this daily exercise. I made it till sometime in November of 2011. And, now, Flora and Fauna is just a regular ole blog, posting when I have something to share and the time to post it.
Some posts are wordy, some are wordless. My goal is to make them as wordless as possible. However, if I find something interesting during the posting/research process, I may share, ok, I will probably share. I hope you find the words and photos to be interesting.
Remember, by clicking on the photo, it will open in a new window, usually a larger view of the image, more detail, etc. Please use your back button to return here to Reflection's Flora and Fauna.
Thanks for stopping by.
A favorite photo from Bellingrath Gardens, near Mobile Alabama
Things I love: Family, Grandchildren, Rving, computers (sometimes, but not when they are being bad), family history, yorkies, techy toys like my iToys, photography.
I am all of these, so I write about them all, and more.
