We had a full moon last night and I went out to experiment with some long exposure shots using my phone's camera. I have a mini Gorilla Pod that I bought before the move, but haven't had a chance to use other than testing it when I first bought it. I was able to use … Continue reading Exposed
This morning I realized I'd forgotten to put the battery for my daughter's Nikon D80 to charge last night. Since our other D80 is broken, however, we have a spare, so I went digging through the camera bag to find it. You'd think it would have been an easy find, but it took a while. … Continue reading Playing with Macro
Well, crap. Yesterday, a few more photos were taken, so this morning I uploaded the last of the pictures on the camera. As typical, I removed the old photos from the card completely, so that it would go back into the camera with maximum space on it. As I was transferring the files, I got … Continue reading Noooo!!!
Hungry Girl and Barbecue visited again this morning. I didn't even try and take photos with my phone. Instead, I just enjoyed watching them. After they left, the birds came back in full force, including a total of 5 blue jays! Usually, it's just two or three. There were also the massive numbers of redpolls … Continue reading Got a Camera
This morning, things were quiet at our feeding station. Basically, just a few birds. Then, after I put more feed out, I was able to get this shot... Butterscotch, in the middle of a pile of seeds, watching the birds flying in and out around her. Sadly, those were the last photos our Nikon was … Continue reading Five!
My goodness, our feeding station keeps busy! That makes me so happy. 😀 There were deer in and out before I had a chance to add more feed for the day. So much for my original thought of adding a bucket every few days. Between the deer, birds and squirrels, I'm now adding a bucket … Continue reading Good Morning, Critters
It has been very busy at our feeding station! I had a sleepless night last night and had gone into the living room at around 4 or 5 am, unintentionally startling some deer. After I had a snack and turned the lights out, I saw one had returned. The moon was incredibly bright, casting shadows … Continue reading Deer Drama
Ever since an OS upgrade some months ago, I have had all sorts of issues with my phone's autocorrect. It would change things that didn't need to be changed, not change things that should have, insert the strangest alternative words to replace words that were fine...after I hit "post", and capitalize words all over the … Continue reading An Excuse for a Post
Years ago, when we were more able bodied and had more discretionary funds, we were all quite into photography. With changing technology, my husband acquired lenses for his smartphone camera. The lenses are held in place by a magnet that holds it to a metal ring adhered around the phone camera lens. Last night, he … Continue reading Testing Macro
This is our new set up to take photos of our feeding area. Unfortunately, when the deer came this morning, she could see me through the window, taking the lens cap off, etc, and took off. Also, in case you are wondering, yes those are marker flags in the plant pot. They, and the yarn, … Continue reading Camera set up
