Don't Tickle This Ivory
New lens allows a close up look at some of the dental detail.
I'm not certain precisely what type of feathered friend this is, but those colors!
It's Sooooooooo FLUFFY!!!
Kibibbi & Dalia
Not the best of pictures but still nice to see Cleveland Zoo keeping the critically endangered jogging along, even if it is in an enclosure.
Bee & Daffodil
Haven't delved into macro yet. Might be coming soon tho.
Sometimes when you are upright you raise the roof, she did all the time. Sometimes you gotta stretch out those paws and chill.
Eyes of a Girlie
Remember. New lenses. Test shots. Here a lens made for stupid thin depth of field allows you to pick a part of a subject and both nearer and farther fade into soft warmth. This eyes have seen some things.
I wish she was facing the other way so the sun put some catchlight in her eyes, but Bella was loving the free rein. Much less regret.
Bella Billie Jean Sniff
If you don't remember the Michael Jackson video where his magical feet illuminated the sidewalk. Well, girlie's magical feet made God feel like highlighting one part of the dog park.
Sorry Sir. Didn't realize I was staring. Didn't mean to or mean anything by it. I'll be going now/ If that's ok with you.
Fascinated by the eyes of birds. So bright and efficient. I wish I could see like one and smell like a dog and thing like a person all at the same time.
Gull on the Move
New lens means test shots. Local part provided this stark contrast for a 70-200mm zoom.Not take sharp but the contrast and separation are on point.
Nuthatch with a Tuft
More of Mother Dear's feathers outdoor pets. Even backyards are fascinating if you're paying attention.
Birdoo in Flight
The Birdoos have a nest cluster not far from here. This one sailed into frame against the bright sky.
Birdoo Sun Welcome
Yes. I call them Birdoos. No idea why. But look at the thing. This ain't no normal amalgamation of bird parts.
Was turning onto my mother's street and this bugger was hanging out in the pond at the corner. Snuck out and clicked his take off.
First trip to Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Wish I had the skill to catch this artist at work. Will be back to try again.
Frog So Blue
Again. If you think you have it all figured out...stop and have a look. The world is crazy and amazing.
Bailey Box Envy
No, it wasn't ribs. It was pizza. Just try to say no to those eyes either way.
Bro's backyard in Fla is awash in all kinds of wildlife. They were gracious enough to indulge me getting some snaps. Bummed we didn't catch the bobcat.
Hard at work. I imagine he looks like me at a wings or rib place. All purpose and intent.
Cow With Relaxed Perm
This dude lives at a winery in Ohio Amish Country. Apparently, a nice Beaujolais helps him let his hair down.
Red Ruffed Lemur
Definitely, need a better pic of these wild beasts.
Terror & Teeth. I'll stay on this side of the glass.
Is he starting a hair piece? Asking for a friend. Side note...most of the animals at the zoo stay inside in the warm during the winter, not the best photo safari option.
Team meeting at 1:00 in the Savannah at Cleveland Zoo.
This is totally how I felt through Junior High School.
This is how you relax after work in Amish country in Ohio.
This is how you report for duty in Amish country Ohio.
Sometime beauty is downright dangerous. What color tho.
I know their spirit tis poison and all but imagine if they breathed fire. That's so dragon.
I may not be in the jungle but I am the King of where ever I am including right here right now.
This critter from the Cleveland Zoo clearly knows they have their own show on Animal Planet. Maxin' & Relaxin' in VIP.
Dog parks are for good boys. Here's an example.
The red, red came bob, bob, bobbing along through our backyard. Finally the sun cooperated.
Aquarium shot at Akron Zoo. The world really is just flabbergasting if you stop to look at it for a moment.
OK. So here's the thing, it's a ridiculous photoshop Halloween Card with our dogs who HATED wearing things. Even at their worst, puppies are way better than people. Life or pictures. You don't wanna fight about this one.
I wish there was some sun this day. The coloring is amazing.
One of the pair of tree hammerers that my mom feeds in Youngstown.
