These pink tulips were a Mother’s Day gift from my daughter.  They’ve opened up beautifully and I love the way the light shines through them.

Alligator Season

On a recent visit to Huntington Beach State Park to take bird photos, I saw a dozen alligators floating by.

Slow Floating Alligator

I’ve never seen this many alligators out at one time but it’s mating season and the gators are here looking for a date.

They don’t approach as long as you keep your distance but it was very difficult to focus on the birds while constantly looking over my shoulder to see if the alligators had moved.  Despite that, I managed to get several great shots of egrets, anhingas and cormorants and I will be posting those soon.

Regular Random – Lemonade

Desley Jane hosts #regularrandom each week and I’ve enjoyed playing along.

The rules are that you spend just five minutes with a single subject or a frame, shooting from different angles, seeing how the light changes, all the while trying to interfere with the subject as little as possible.

Regular Random – Orange Tulip

Desley Jane hosts #regularrandom each week and I had so much fun last week that I decided to play again today.

The rules are that you spend just five minutes with a single subject or a frame, shooting from different angles, seeing how the light changes, all the while trying to interfere with the subject as little as possible.

I have to admit that I didn’t follow all the rules.  I loved the first set of pictures so much that I took photographs the next day with different lighting.  The bright color made me smile!

Regular Random – Five Minutes at the Pool Table

Desley Jane hosts #regularrandom each week and it looks like so much fun that I thought I would try.

The rules are that you spend just five minutes with a single subject or a frame, shooting from different angles, seeing how the light changes, all the while trying to interfere with the subject as little as possible.
