"Photography is savoring life at 1/100th of a second.” – Marc Riboud

This is a Small Niltava, caught mid-song somewhere near Gangtok in Sikkim. And it is a startlingly pretty bird I must add.

"Our inability to think beyond our own species, or to be able to co-habit with other life forms in what is patently a massive collaborative quest for survival, is surely a malady that pervades the human soul." - Lawrence Anthony, The Elephant Whisperer : My life with the Herd in the African Wild.

This is an image of the Rufous-tailed Scrub Robin shot near Jaisalmer in August.

This was a milestone bird for me, my 550th. This pic of the Red-billed Scimitar Babbler was shot in The Land of the Dawn-lit Mountains

Good evening from somewhere along the rails. This is Rhinebeck NY at sunset or soon thereafter on my way to Chicago.

Later the same day. Beautiful evening settling in. Taken with iPhone 11. Same location basically as previous.

Repeating curve pattern on a hotel wall. Not the first time I've tried to take a photo of it, but I think I like the soft lighting on this one, taken while this section was in the shade, but still very well lit by indirect sunlight.

On Pokemon Go, it's a gym known as "Recursive Walls."

Due to rains over Christmas, we now have a fresh batch of Australian Wood Duck, ducklings, at work. The parents seem to be quite good at protecting them, chasing off Corellas and Noisy Minors (neither of which are a threat to the chicks). They have about 12 or 13 chicks in this clutch (hard to count them as they keep moving and are virtually identical).

I'm very happy with this shot.

This is Amanda. She's a wonderful person, and she's worked really hard to get where she is.

I've got some great stuff coming up this month, it might not be a bad time to check out the NFGphoto Patreon. ^__^

Yet another depressing moment that you wish you were able to study at least 2 or 3 different languages, and were not able to. 🤔 😐 🙁

Somehow now I find an actual post from TWILIGHT ZONE INTROS just minutes after someone mentions Twilight Zone in their post to me....

MetalMan boosted

because an unassuming, forlorn pirate just opened a dusty library book and the first page reads "Love polyester"... in the Twilight Zone.
