National Wildlife Magazine photo contest

Yep, I entered some of my photos in the National Wildlife Contest.

I was allowed 10 entries. The magazine will judge all the photos in various categories but there is also a People’s Choice Award (aka popularity contest) and if you have been enjoying my wildlife photos, I hope you will go take a look and vote for some of my photos. You can vote for all or some. Please check them out here.

You can vote every day (and I hope you will)

Thank you!

Hummingbird photography workshop

Last weekend I took a workshop led by wildlife photographers Meggi Raeder and Judy Bingham on learning how to photograph hummingbirds. It was a lovely day spent up in the Santa Cruz mountains with a dozen or more hummingbirds darting in and out around the feeders and plants. Even though I didn’t have the most ideal equipment for snapping photos of these birds, I got some nice shots and learned a lot about how to best try to capture these beautiful birds. Go here for info on next years workshop.

Here are a few of my favorites from the day.

 

 

Head on over to Flickr to see the complete set from the day.

Sweat bee on Grindelia hirsutula

I finally got my extension tubes working enough to snag this sweat bee (I think) feasting on the Grindelia hirsutula. Click on the photos to see them much larger.
