Camera Clicks – Photo Challenge – Animals in Nature

This is part 4 of my series of photos taken at Zoo Tampa.

This was the abolute highlight of the day, it was the purest and sweetest thing i have EVER seen. This baby was trying to share her sippy cup with the baby Orangutan. The little girl then put her hand on the glass and the baby O did the same. 💞

Some amazingly beautiful birds inside an Aviary…the chicken was there to keep bugs to a minimum, he was strutting around like he owned the place. Lol

Very interresting creatures in the Asia exhibit: Tapir, sloth bear, gharial croc…

Well this does it for the Zoo trip, until next time lol I need to take pictures in the Africa and Wallaroo exhibits AND the new Manatee exhibit just opened too!


Camera Clicks – Article by Peter Delaney

As you can tell, I really enjoy Phorography. I am very new at this. My favorite photographer of all time is Ansel Adams. I have bought a few instructional books tied to his work, but I just haven’t gotten to really read them yet. I spend time reading articles and watching videos on all things related to photography. Here is a link to an article i just read and found very Interresting:


I really dont spend any time editing as i read about alot of people doing this. Right now, i am a total purest. Why spend so much time looking and taking a picture that moves you then spend hours or even days editing? I just don’t get it, anyone want to help me out on this one?

I think about Ansel Adams taking pictures with real film, not a digital instant gratification set up, but the art of developing film was the real talent. By using a digital camera, my thoughts are, you should spend time following that voice that says “Omg thats a great picture or oh that touches my soul” then go home and see what you’ve got, not spend hours tweaking the picture.

What I’ve learned so far is, it is really hard to click that button to really capture what your heart sees. But i keep clicking…how about you?

Camera Clicks – Photo Challenge – Animals in Nature

We went to the Zoo for the first time in a very long time. Although, this challenge was for “Animals in Nature” this is as close to nature I’ll ever get to some of these Amazing Creatures!

This Gibbon, I think, seemed to be meditating becoming one with a waterfall that is just outside this shot.

Nothing to see here, just a little nap after lunch.

Here’s a couple of exhibitionists, eh hmm if you know what i mean…😨

Testing the water temp for his lady, i think it must not have been to her liking because she never went in.

2 shots of this guy…we interrupted his nap but he seemed to smile for us; either that or he was telling us to go away. Lol

To be continued…

Camera Clicks – Monarch Cocoon

I am super excited about this. I’ve found a few of these recently but by the time I checked on them again they’d hatched. This is the closest shot I have gotten…I hope it doesn’t hatch before i get home!

UPDATE: It hatched before i could get pictures 😢🦋🦋🦋 but here are a few more pictures of cocoon watch lol

We recently went to the Zoo and had a chance to see these amazing creatures and I had a chance to work on my camera skills. What do you think, I’d love feed back…

A Florida Panther, this lovely lady was intently watching a potential snack I think LOL

This dude made sure to get my attention, he was squawking and fussing with a nest mate. Its funny how the Mom radar can span species 🤣🤣

My favorite color! My hairdresser refuses to let me do this color LOL I am always amazed when watch these birds…

If you read last weeks post you know I Love turtles…why is there a red dodgeball in the tortise enclosure? Well they play with it of course!

Now these creatures were a RIOT to watch and photograph! Super personality and absolutely my favorite of the day! Meerkats are a must see❣

Penguins, yeah when i go back, i will definately spend more time here. This one was being watched by the rest, they were all standing around and once he/she laid down they all went about their business, INTERRESTING!
