Chasing Ibis

f/6.3 SS 1/400 ISO 400

f/6.3 SS 1/400 ISO 400

Trying to show you my hometown. Starting with a little bit of where I live. Birds of all kinds like to make south Florida their home. These ibis love the ranch. They were roosting in the top of the tree. I used my car to get close, then stood on the roof to get a closer shot. CC welcome.

I am a Mom!


All manual!! f/5.6 SS 1/250

Trying out the manual mode, using the Understanding Exposure book as a reference. This is a very shady tree, and I wanted natural lighting. I only adjusted the sharpness in PSE4. CC Welcome.

This is my daughter climbing a tree in our yard. I like the casual look she has, not posing or looking directly at the camera.
