Today was a mostly rainy day with thunderstorms passing through. Sophie doesn’t care for rain, but she hates thunder. She wouldn’t go outside as long as she could hear thunder. Here she is looking out the door while I was in the yard. Settings were f/6.3, 1/80, ISO 400.
Trees with dark clouds passing behind them. Settings were f/7.1, 1/60, ISO 250.
The flock of Cedar Waxwings as a storm moved in. The shutter speed was slow but I like the effect of motion with the birds in flight. Settings were f/5, 1/50, ISO 250.
During the afternoon we had a pause between storms when the sun came out for awhile. I went out with the camera and Sophie was finally willing to come outside too. On the fence at the side of the yard I saw another Brown Anole, a female this time. Females usually have a white or light-colored stripe down the middle of their backs with sort of wavy lines around it. This is a side view of course, but it’s a dark brown female and the white line is pretty visible. Settings were f/7.1, 1/100, ISO 125.
The young male Brown Anole on the pool steps was out in the afternoon sunshine as well. Settings were f/7.1, 1/400, ISO 125.
He seems to think he’s getting to be a big guy now and flashed his dewlap a few times. Settings were f/7.1, 1/400, ISO 125.
Then he faced off against a fly that landed on the step near him–you can see how small this anole still is. He was considering grabbing that fly but it flew away before he could make his move. Settings were f/7.1, 1/400, ISO 125.
