We were losing light, and I didn’t have a tripod. These were the best shots I was able get of my favorite pin-up model. I think TWGW is stunning in these shots.
Playing around with a new 3d filter in g’mic. This is me, sitting in a hallway last Spring waiting out a tornado warning while the house was pounded with heavy winds. You’ll need blue/red 3d glasses to fully appreciate this.

I’ve never seen one of these before. Saw him when I pulled in and had to snap off a shot. I have no clue what kind of bird it is, but he sure is fun to watch when he walks.
Edit: Apparently, it is an “American Woodcock.” Thanks to redditor “OsoGato” for clarifying!

It might not look like much to you, but I’ve never been more proud of such a small dot. This was the first time I’ve ever had a lens on a digital that would make the moon big enough that you could recognize it as more than just a pinpoint of light. It was in the low 30’s and overcast the night I took this picture, shivering as I waited for Luna to peek out from behind the clouds. I fired off about 10 shots and this was the best of the lot. I’m looking forward to more clear nights.
While helping my aunt feed a friend’s horse, I thought I’d play with my new lens a bit and took the opportunity to snag a few photos of the local wildlife. I thought this little cardinal looked so regal perched half in shadow and half in light, and just had to share it.
