Adventure of Lightning

 Finally, The day has come that I did my own lightning pictures yesterday..

I bet my mentor Al D did not take advantage of this storm of lightning photography instead i did.

When I had gone outside to do some night shots of critters in the dark , I looked up and there was a lightning show appearing from a storm that I had looked on the radar map. I took advantage of the thunderstorm shoot and did lightning pictures instead.

The storm cell , I had been looking at on the radar was 4 miles southeast of where I live. But this time I did the pictures on my own and I got amazing results of the storm.

I saw many lightning bolts and inner cloud lightning in this storm cell. Which made it very cool to photograph at night, You have to wait for it to be dark enough to see the lightning at night and photograph it .

I went under the manual setting on the camera and set it to the time exposures and counted down when each lightning bolt had occurred and triggered the shutter to make these pictures happen.

I checked all around me to see what the conditions of the storm were doing, along with the nature of lightning and how to be safe doing dry lightning pictures.

This picture to left is inner cloud lightning, which is cool to photograph at night .

 I was amazed at how well I am doing with lightning photography now.

Right Sunrise conditions at Jordan Lake plus good birds

Today I did a sunrise shot with my photography mentor who seemed to be chimping some open his photos today.

This is a Great Blue Heron I took during the sunrise at Jordan Lake Today. We spotted a pair of them doing territorial stand offs which was impressive to photograph today as well.

This was the when the territorials between the two Great Blue Herons were fighting between which territory belonged to them. I got many good shots of this.

This is also a pair of Black Voltures that seemed to be enjoying this beautiful morning grooming and just hanging around the side of Jordan Lake which I also got many shots of them doing their grooming styles for the day.

The other photos I got included a swallowtail butterfly, bees  and a new stump I got there today.
Here is a bee on the same flower that before the swallowtail was on.

Hatching of Prey Mantis!!

Hey Hey its AL back with an exciting news from my house today!  I have successfully, I have had 1 prey mantis egg sack today that hatched finally . I put 4 up in February 2020 and one hatched today which was amazing to watch and I got many pictures of them hatching from the egg sack today.
