This guy is the Jimmy Durante of White Pelicans!
Of all the times I’ve watched Great Blue Herons, this is the first time I’ve seen one strut around like this. I think he was trying to impress his girlfriend.
No, Not with my iPad…..on my iPad.
These are teeny-tiny specimens, small enough to lay on top of my iPad. With a blank white background (used an app called Color Softbox) the iPad becomes a backlit lightbox and things on top become translucent. Then I just set my camera up on tripod, lay the iPad on the floor beneath, and start shooting. Fun!
Here’s a dried up twin bud from a mini daffodil plant.
I clipped this from a shurb
Love how translucent this fern becomes when backlit.
Thought I’d switch up the stark white background on this one so added a texture to a trio of tiny ground cover flowers.
