Girl Statue and Waterfall in Garden

I took this image today at the Selby Gardens in Sarasota, FL.

I think it has a weird vibe to it.  Almost like it was for a horror story or movie.
If you stare at her long enough she will look up at you. No…really. LOL.

Taken with Canon 70D with a Tamron 16-300mm lens, shot @ 55mm, F7, 1/100, ISO 400.

New Spring TV series on NBC starring Turtles & Gator

Here’s a photo for NBC’s new spring TV show-
9 Turtles & a Gator. Airing Tues night after Dateline NBC, lol
I was so surprised that so many turtles were lying around the gator.
Like they were old friends.  They laid out together almost everyday this week.
The title sounds like the movie- 3 Men & a Baby

More Canon lens testing, gator roar…with HDR effect

Doing more testing of my new lens, Canon 100-400mm L II, and loving it.

Here is a gator that visits a few times aweek in the cancel behind our condo.
I love the texture and detail this lens gets.  Very sharp.
Where have you been all my life?  Lol.

I’ve added an HDR effect to bring out the detail in the skin.

This reminds me of a little gator saying:
“It’s not that difficult to tell alligators and crocodiles apart.
One will see you in a while whereas the other will see you later.”

Testing my new Canon lens on nature…

I just received my new lens, Canon 100-400mm L II.  These were my first shots. I went out behind our condo and there was a lot of activity today.  Birds and gator. 

I kept my eye on the gator as I was photographing the birds.  I didn’t want to be surprised. 

Anyway, I’m happy so far with the lens.  Just need to get used to the size and weight of it.

Barn on Pond in BW

Guess what day it is?
Yup, day 4 of 5 of my Black and White challenge.
This is not far our house.  Just a nice barn on a small pond.
Makes me think of the holidays.

Goodbye Fall, we barely knew you

Is it me or did fall come and go too quickly this year?

The family and I did a chance to see some of nature’s wonder.
This is Unicoi Lake near Helen, GA.
Not a cloud in the sky.
