It only takes gentle breeze to spread these seeds. (5 years and 1128 days ago)
beautiful, wonderful focus
Thanks vibeke. This was fun because I started shooting a fully intact dandelion and a breeze quickly tore it apart. The two seeds on the right were basically in flight.
Great shot, congrats
Thanks you all. Glad you liked it.
a beautiful photo and a well deserved win.

As his parents stand guard, this sandhill crane chick takes a brief nap. (5 years and 1423 days ago)
great shot, and the silhouette of the mother behind is wonderful.
Thanks for the comments and favorites. The best part of this photo...look at the size of his feet.
Bravo...nicely done author. It's the mothers legs in the BG that make this an outstanding image.
great shot...with big feet like those he sure needs a rest!
Awww - he's beautiful
Thanks everyone. This shot was special because this little guy had quite an alarm system and within seconds of this shot he was awake and alert.
Getting close to common non-venomous rat snake.....I think. (5 years and 1070 days ago)
Yep...a rat snake...non-poisonous, but...they will strike and bite your face...LOL nice shot author, most people fear snakes very much, so to get this close, I'd call that an on-topic shot. Well done.
Thanks. They're pretty shy till cornered. I need to stay away because we also have Moccasins that aren't shy and very venomous.
Well...to tell the truth, I'm a bit of an outdoorsman, and the indication that a snake is poisonous with just a look is the eyes...round pupils like a dog or human is non-poisonous and pupils similar to a cat (narrow and tall) indicates a poisonous snake...just FYI. Altough, many people choose (rather wisely) not to get close enough to do an eyeball inspection...LOL
definitely risky and scary
a really cool shot... but I don't see the risk
With your super weather proof camera kyricom, and the fact that you don't see the risk here, I can't wait to see what you consider risky, lol=)
Thanks everyone especially the info about the eyes.
Nice close up, and yes I think it is a rat snake =)
Well. Emik... I buy that getting close to water etc. without a weathersealed camera is risky to the camera (although the cynic in me suspects many of those aren't really that close and are just cropped) But a Rat Snake doesn't seem too risky. How would it hurt you or the camera? Would it be risky to get close to a baby bunny?
What did I consider risky? The last time this theme ran I entered my shot taken in mid-February where I climbed over the fence at Niagra Falls around midnight to stand on the ice right next to the falls. Not only risky - but incredibly STUPID!!!
Without knowing for sure what kind of snake it was, I felt I was taking a risky shot. Bite, pain ...avoid.
The real question here is how distant the camera was from the snake... centimeters? meters? It's the real deal...
Fabulous shot and I love the DOF. I'm sure I wouldn't have got that close to any snake.....
Wow, great focus and great capture author.

good one nice timing
I had a few out of focus as well. With the digital SLR, shoot the heck of it. Thanks.
great catch, hard enough to get one of them
If I didn't know better, I'd say they were leapfrogging. Thanks
Congrats on your first place!
congratulations on 1st place, Love this photo
