~ Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #210: My Photographic Groove ~

One of the things I love about photography is that my camera gives me the opportunity to “capture the moment.” Whether it is a quiet sunset, a surging wave, a golden hour sunrise, a new bird to learn about, or some other surprise in nature, snapping shots gives me an opportunity to enjoy the moment again.

Nature has always been my passion and since living part-time on the Long Beach Peninsula in Washington State, I have photographed many of the birds I see. Some are residents, others migrate through, and I feel a sense of accomplishment when I’m able to identify the bird(s) from the shots I’ve taken.

Sanderling & Western Sandpiper, Turkey Vulture, Long-billed Dowitcher, Ruddy Turnstone.

To finish, here are a couple more favorite “capture the moment” photos. A Song Sparrow is having a good-old-time in a small bird bath – its enthusiasm is infectious! Open field Wild Roses thrive in the Pacific Northwest and provide food for bees.

    Terrific response Lindy – interesting that we share so many bird species being on opposite coasts as we are! Loved all of your images but especially your opening nature captures. Just beautiful. Also loved your closing thank-you sentence, really thoughtful. Nicely done.

      Thank you, Tina. We do have many birds that live east and west, however you have those lovely pink spoonbills which I never get tired of seeing. I’m glad you enjoyed my post, and the closing thank you!
