I had a moment with this blue jay. It is the SAME blue jay in every picture. One of these photos was a total surprise. I had no idea I had caught him in flight. If you don't know already, my goal is to capture a blue jay's wings fully open from the back. I have yet to capture it completely but this was the closest yet. Fingers crossed I capture "the shot" really soon.
Ahhh, more birds. This time I watched feeding time, which is usually around 5pm-ish in the summer. Birds are nuts!!! They definitely have their own world going on and sometimes it can be brutal. Eating time is a one for all, first come - first serve experience. It's also a great place to catch birds in flight.
The first set of photos is of the same bird. I was watching it go from tree to tree. I tried my best to capture it's wings + his/her journey. Below are another set of birds you can only see if you look closely except for the end. They bursted into flight + all took off together.
This may not be the most exciting set of photos but it's moments like this that make me very happy.
A few more phases to add to my collection. I think I am going to pick a month + shoot a picture EVERY NIGHT. Hopefully I can get a beautiful sequence of every phase. I also hope Rhode Island will bless me with a month's worth of clear weather nights, haha. Stay Tuned...
My main squeeze of the bird world, the blue jay. These shots all happened in about five minutes. No flight pictures today but I can't expect that every time. They move so fast it's extremely hard to capture. One day I will get the full wing span from the back, fingers crossed!!!
For my husband's birthday I bought him the "anywhere" Hammock. You can, that's right, use it anywhere haha. We went off to Lincoln Woods to try it out. Let me tell you, if you like hammock - you need to get one. It was AMAZING!!! While my husband was searching for the perfect hammock spot, I got to take some time + steal a few shots in the woods.
Photography is my muse + also my hobby. For my career I am a Freelance Event Hairstylist. Most of my work is in Newport RI. After an onsite job on Goat Island, I spent some time watching the bridge. Bridges scare me to drive over but I think they are beautiful. It's a love/hate relationship. When I drive to Newport I usually avoid the bridge if I can but I have no problem taking it's picture.
