If You Want To Capture Someone's Attention


As the saying goes . . .

. . . just whisper.

If you want to capture an up close shot of an eagle . . .

. . . just use your zoom lens

like I did today, just before sunset

right here in Sorrento.

Thank goodness I brought my camera with me today. I'm learning to never leave home without it. How about you?

It seems EVERY time I don't grab my camera, there is something I really wish I had gotten a shot of! -grumbles-

OH my goodness..I am in awe...What a beautiful bird. It is one of my favorites..Of course is part of the Marine emblem. What an awesome and majestic bird. Your camera is just fantastic. I am so thankful that you posted this. It makes me smile and to think you were able to capture that creature on your camera... Did it know???
Was it posing for you??? :-)
Looks like it. Thanks lilli for a wonderful post. LOVED it.

That's awesome - what a handsome bird. Seems like you're getting the goods from your new camera.

unbelievable photography Lili! Eagle sightings are such a rare treat - you captured this beautifully!

Love the boat photos also - Whisper is a great name for a boat!

I could probably take a similar picture...of a chicken.

That's just amazing that you capture his scowly face. Very nice!

Oh, Lili, I am so envious! You know how I love my birds of prey! And my macro shots are fun but how I miss using the nice optics that go with the old 35mm film camera. I'll have to do some trading...

I always tell Marcy that the times I forget the camera are the times we see Bigfoot riding a unicorn ;-)

Michelle Palmer said...

So gorgeous!!!
Hooray for you~ I would be covered with goosebumps if I saw one... and forget to take the picture! :)
Hope your day is perfect~

I keep forgetting mine cuz its a bigger Nikon not one of those purse types. I hate to leave it in the car you just never know if someone will steal it. And its always at that time......when I dont have it......that I see the most amazing things. Sigh.

jennyfreckles said...

Lili - I just had a look at your book on Blurb. It's beautiful. Is this new or have I just missed seeing it before?

MinnieRunner said...

Oh! The claws!

Carol Bass @ A Bird in Hand said...

Oh my goodness, Lili! What an incredible opportunity. Eagles are rare down here. To have seen one close enough to even use the lense....incredible!!! Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos.

Hi Lili!

That eagle could
have a modeling
contract, he or
she is so gorgeous,
proud and just darn
amazing looking! {Do
you think that Ford
Modeling has an eagle

Lucky you to get such
an fabulous shot. You
should enter it into
a contest!

Yes, I bring my camera
with me a lot, but tech-
nically I'm not where
you are yet....

Thank you for your sweet
comments on P&H about
my dear friend Kathleen.
Your words meant so much,
to both of us.

BIG hugs, to you, today!
