Furry Tail Fling

Levitating squirrel leaves only a trace of tail – too quick for me. I have become slightly obsessed with wildlife in the last month – many robin pictures, too many hummingbird pictures, many missed egret pictures. On cold grey days I have watched Youtube videos of photographers showing off their super long camo-covered lenses and sharing their tips for capturing BIF (birds-in-flight). I suspect my interest will soon return to the species I am most familiar with – Homo sapiens.

Round Spring
Round Spring in the Ozark National Scenic Riverways is a great place for snapshots… But it reminds me why I am not a “scenic/nature” photographer. First, you have to really work hard to create a picture that is not just another postcard snap. Second, you have to be up early (above is 7am with the temperture about -2 celsius) and dress appropriately (I had no gloves – d’oh). Third, you have to haul a lot of gear- tripods, flash, filters, etc. I love the idea but I have to work my strength — stick with human scenery.
