Photography takes a back seat on most of my trips, and it certainly did on my trip to Japan, where I greeted my newest grandchild. Here is my self portrait (with an iPhone), which I now use as my Facebook profile. Can you understand that most of my photography in Japan involved my new grandkid?
Well, we certainly can't leave out Shelby Farms photos or heron photos, or other bird photos. One fairly nice day I captured my first reflected heron with a fish, and my best reflected flying heron. Oh, let's not forget other birds, and a nice dawn with the Patriot Lake Isand.
Now, from Audubon Park, a junco
Although we had no snow, I did get a photo of a migrating snow goose in Shelby Farms.
On a particularly cold weekend at the Tennessee River, I happened to get my best photos ever of a northern flicker. I took these through a window because I was not going to brave the thirty degree windy weather. Did you know that the northern flicker is the only type of woodpecker that sometimes feeds on the ground. They do make a racket in trees, though, too.
I do very little indoor photography, and when I do, it mostly has to do with family. I was the photographer for my grandson's sixth birthday party, and it was much more fun than any of the other duties I might have been assigned (cutting and serving cake, hanging up coats, passing out pizza, cleaning up). Flash generally isn't needed indoors any more. My camera is not really quite up to getting good action photos in low light though, so I do lack photos of kids jumping on all the equipment.
It is finally warmer, and I am ready for action, and hopefully some spring photos!
