    Wildlife Photography

    I know we had a great thread with a great title for wildlife photography, but I can't find it. If anyone can recall the name of the thread and/or the forum it is in, I will happily merge the threads.

    In the meantime, I went on safari in my aunt's backyard to test out my new camera. Here are a few of my favorite shots.

    Maybe this one: https://talkfreethought.org/showthre...s+roaming+free

    But it looks like a lot of the pictures have disappeared from their respective servers, so maybe a new thread is in order.

    I found Angry Floof's cousin, too!

    Technically not very good, but I just love the expression on this bird's face

    Maybe. I do remember that there were a lot of really wonderful wildlife photos taken by our members. It's what inspired me to take up photography as a hobby again.

    Ya. That old thread was great but with Photobucket now charging something like $400 a a year to use it to post photos they now block all those old photos. I deleted my account. I think a new topic to start fresh is good. I don't know if it's new or has always been but I see that TFT accepts attachments which is great.

    In an effort to help restart the topic, attached are wither interesting or nice photos.

    First I find interesting is a gray squirrel in a blizzard taken through my basement door.



    Second, I have no idea what these white things are. They are in a tide pool on the coast of Maine. Are they animal or plan? Have no idea yet. Have tried searching and no results yet.



    Third is a small lizard that is common in Japan. Was in japan in June.



    Forth, the Osprey are back on the nest at one of my favorite wildlife spots. Mud Creek bridge that spans a very muddy tidal estuary in Maine.



    Fifth, my first good photo of a barn swallow.


    OK. I need practice. Not sure why these photos show up so large.

    Thanks, it seems that VBulletin and Google photos are having a tiff. I'll repost from downloaded photos :-(

    Took this on the High Line in Manhattan a couple of weeks back. Get a look at that bee - it may be one of the last you'll see. Taken by the superb camera on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8. Annoyingly, I had to resize it to under half original, because VBulletin wouldn't take the full size image.
