When in the woods last week with my youngest son and my good friend Mike, they were able to catch some nice large mouth bass on the nearby ponds. The couple that I got shots on, the first was pretty small, but put up a good fight. I was able to capture some breech shots as he tried to throw the hook.
The second was a bigger fish that my son caught! I was proud!!
**Disclaimer** NO FISH WERE HURT IN THE CAPTURE OF THESE PHOTOS. THEY WERE RELEASED BACK TO THEIR NATURAL HABITAT WHERE THEY LIVE TO FIGHT ANOTHER DAY! 😛
I have to give credit my oldest son for being quick on the draw for this one. Taken with his galaxy tab 10.1, this squirrel gave us all the surprise early one morning. Jumping from the tree to the screen of a second floor window, this squirrel provided quite the entertainment. Perplexed on what to do next, he didn’t seem phased that there were people on the other side of the window. 🙂
We are not sure if he made it back to the tree or not.
I love it when I get to see a Bald Eagle. Not to many years ago it was a guarantee that you would NOT see one in our area. However, with the re-introduction, the Bald Eagle is doing an amazing job, and its becoming easier to spot them in nature! I just need to get a better telephoto lens!
My favorite “mother” pictures in context of animals was the experience of seeing humpback whales in Alaska. This excursion was special. The first picture was of the young calf breaching the water. She did so several time and I was very lucky to capture it with the point and shoot camera I had. The second was of the calf’s mother approaching the boat we were on. The third was of the two of them together. The whale closed to the boat in the third picture is the mother, and the furthest away was the calf. They were definitely putting on a show, and it was truly special to see and experience.
