Do seagulls count as a subject for Candid shots? If so, this my post for Tina Schell’s Lens-Artist Challenge #67: CANDID.
If seagulls aren’t quite what people have in mind, then I’ll post this as a late entry for Patti’s challenge last week of Lens-Artist Challenge #66: Filling the Frame. 😉
Also posted for Granny Shot It Bird of the Day Challenge though I have to confess that I’m not sure how Granny’s challenge works. Can you post any bird on any day, or do you have to post the bird of the day that she has – in this case, for October 15, its ducks. And these are not ducks.
So there you are: I’m not sure if I can technically post these photos to any of the above challenges, but I’ve given it a go. Because really, this white seagull that was kind enough to only move his head while I was shooting is quite an amazing fellow. I especially love the detail of his eye, if you zoom in.
I especially love the bee’s beautiful translucent wings!

This is the fifth day I’m taking up Patti’s pilotfish challenge: Lens-Artist Photo Challenge: #66: Filling the Frame. I took this shot with my (new!) mirrorless Olympus OM-D E-M5 with a Zuiko 75-300mm lens. I was, as usual, walking the dogs and noticed that some of the brown leaves on a tree were were still partially orange. They were also perfectly back lit by the sun. The photo practically took itself.
