The Hunt!

I shot this Mockingbird with my dad on Tuesday, so it is still breaking news.  It’s the chronicles of a great and glorious hunt that I had the privilege to observe.

Regal and commanding King Mockingbird is hunting. *fanfare*

He scans the ground for his next meal and provides me with a great shot. I got both orange eyes in one picture!

Closer, closer…

He bags his prey!  With his… um… beak.

Ahh, the sweet, sweet taste of victory.

Hope you enjoyed my little story and God’s glorious creation!

  1. What would be awesome would be if WordPress would automatically inject the EXIF data (camera settings) for each photo that you’ve added to your blog. I like the bokeh in these particular shots and it would be interesting to know the lens you used, etc.

    1. That feature would be superb! I use a Nikon D80 with a Nikon 70-300 lens (without VR). For that Mockingbird I was shooting at ISO-500, 1/1250 sec. f/6.3 with +1 exposure bias. Since I was on a golf course there was lots of greens to work with, which definitely helped.
      Happy shooting!

  2. What lovely photos! Will you take photography to a higher level (Maybe college? I’m not sure how it works in the US – over here you can do degrees in Photography) You really are very good 🙂

    1. Aww, thank you! I would love to minor in Photography, but I don’t know if I’d have to go to a specific art college for that. I’m still not even sure what I’m going to major in, but it’ll probably be something math/computer/science related… Sometimes I can’t figure out whether I’m left or right-brained. 🙂 Thank you so much, I’m so glad you like me photos!
