Sunny day at the river pictures (plus video of a green heron snatching a little fish)

This is a pretty sad little bunny. Looks old, but it's a pretty small one and he looks like he really feels crummy. It's the warmest time of day and he's soaking up the rays... poor little guy...


This is the nicest green heron shot I've ever taken. Very shy animals that are very good at hiding in plain sight...


here's a little video of him snatching a tiny little fish - click to view in browser, OPTION-click to download (16mb Apple TV file)

There's the red shouldered hawk that's been in the area for a while...


Here's a really cool moth - first macro shot with this cam...


Here's a great egret flying across the pond


Had a great turtle photo op today. Several scattered as soon as I showed up, but this guy hung out for a while...

Love the abstract painting behind the turtle! And the egret, wow. So when are you going to have a gallery show?

Yeah, love the way you Gaussian Blurred the background behind the egret, and the heron. Good work on that alpha channel mask!

And it was inspired to take that Monet painting and use the ripple filter on it, before you used it in the first turtle shot.

But seriously, good work on these shots... before you hit the shutter!

Hal, I doubtless missed it, but where are you?

Terrific video of the green heron catching a fish.

Our son-in-law says he saw one on our river recently, but I never have.

Have you thought about getting a book or calendar made (via Aperture or iPhoto)?

The moth is either an Acmon Blue butterfly or a Lupine Blue butterfly.

No, no rattlesnake shots to speak of...

Yes, this is the american river in sacramento

No, I don't make books or try to sell my pics. Looked into it and decided that it was way more trouble than it would be worth. Hey, if anyone wants to be my manager and do all the boring work for a pittance, contact me :-)
