Street Thugs

Street Thugs

These guys hanging out in a group remind me of street thugs waiting for a little old lady to come by so they can snatch her purse.

I used to have a real camera. One with a 300 mm lens and all the bells and whistles and filters aplenty. Then I was forced to sell it due to a financial crunch. And it is days like today – when I shot this photo – when I think about how much I miss having a real camera. I hope to someday own one again. The camera I currently shoot with is quite basic and has no bells or whistles, so I am always happy to get anything with it. This photo was shot with that camera, across the Susquehanna River in Owego, NY. It is quite a distance, considering that I was shooting without a tripod once again and pushing my camera beyond its limit. I wish Canon would sponsor me and send me a nice model so I could set the Nikon aside. But, thats life. This was as good as I could do today.

Again, this photo has blur, but it was taken from across the Susquehanna River. Anyone familiar with the Susquehanna River – which flows from Cooperstown, NY to form the Chesapeake Bay along the Atlantic seaboard – will tell you how mighty the river is. It was a long stretch, even with 21X zoom, and with no tripod I really was winging it. So here’s another blurry photo.

I regret that this photo is not very clear, but I am posting it anyhow. I was all the way across the Susquehanna River in Owego, NY today and happened to be shooting an eagle. The eagle was diving for dinner which it caught, and I have photos of the catching, the hauling away and the feeding frenzy. I shot around a hundred and fifty shots and haven’t had time to go through and edit them yet. So I skimmed through and picked out a few and cropped them. This was one I found really cool. The crows were exceptionally brave.

10 Heron and 3 Deer

There are at least 10 blue heron and 3 whitetail deer in this photo. Some of the heron are airborne, though most are on land. I made this a panorama to focus on the wildlife.
