Skellig Michael: Anticipation

We shared the boat to Skellig Michael with some furry friends as well as the human kind. They were true sea dogs and loved the trip.

Lazy 5 Ranch: Kangaroo

Another close up afforded to me thanks to Lazy 5 Ranch. The amount of different animals there was great!

Skellig Michael: Feel the Light

I feel like it is hard to take a bad picture of a Puffin. The seem to have such personality.

Lazy 5 Ranch: I’m Lookin at you…

Another example of an animal that you would not normally be able to get close to. But thanks to Lazy 5 Ranch, I was able to get some great shots of this guy.

Skellig Michael: Puffin Up Close and Personal

This past Summer, we took a trip to Scotland and Ireland. While in Ireland we got the chance to visit Skellig Michael. Yes, the island where the latest Star Wars films were shot. One of the amazing features of this island (and the reason there were Porgs in the films) are the Puffins. They were EVERYWHERE and you could get so close to them. It was by far one of my favorite places in Ireland. 

Lazy 5 Ranch: Hello There

If you ever have a change to pop by Lazy 5 Ranch, it is well worth the trip. You really get a chance to get up close and personal with some of the animals. I was feet away from this Giraffe.

Soaring Above

Laughing Gull Soaring

While Shooting the sunset at Folly Beach in South Carolina I had these laughing gulls that were constantly flying over my head. The backdrop of that blue sky scudded with clouds was to irresistible. This is one of them that I caught. Location: Folly Beach, SC Settings: f/11.0, ISO 250, Shutter Speed 1/640 of a second.

You wanna fight!?

Caught this praying mantis in full on warning mode trying to fend off a cat. It was quite an impressive display and he got away.

Flying in the Light.

Caught this pelican at just the right moment. Flying through the light in the aftermath of a stormy sky near dusk.

Trying something New: Weathering the Storm

So I have decided to try to post at least 1 picture a week this summer to get some consistent movement on the blog. So here is the first shot: This is from Top Sail beach in NC. The storm was out to sea and really framing the bird on the long strut of an old pier. I tried a bit of a time lapse to get a smooth ocean. I loved the colors.
