On photo Alligator Grabs Big Dinner in Salt Marsh in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

RuthC: This is an extremely dramatic capture, Philip Lanoue, and it deserves third place in this weekly challenge. I'm personally pleased for you that you were so close to your subject that we can see the details of its eyes, as well as all those very sharp, lethal teeth, yet I'm so glad that I can view the picture from half a world away. A picture for the wall, but not one for a child's bedroom wall. :-)
Ruth :-)

Thanks very much Ruth!
He's a good boy though, a real pussycat. :-)

RuthC: This is a fabulous picture, Philip Lanoue, and it deserves a top place in this weekly challenge. Your spoonbill lives up to its name with the rosy pink plumage, reflected very nicely in the calm water, while our eyes are drawn to its long beak, just in the instance of catching a small fish for lunch. I found it interesting to see that the fish within the bird's beak is complemented by its reflection in the water, so we get to see the whole fish's profile. A great capture! Ruth :-)

Thank you very much Ruth. I greatly appreciate the very kind words and I'm happy you enjoyed this photo.

On challenge New photo, camera you haven't used in years (2 comments in total)

Body and lens? So this is for DSLRs only? What about point & shoots?
Maybe not this challenge then but could be a fun idea for a future challenge.
Drag out an old digital point & shoot you have not used for years.
I have a few 10-13 year old cameras that I would like an excuse to try using for fun.

If some guy showed up in the marsh here wearing one if those dopey rain cape things I think even the alligators would laugh him out of the place.

In reply to:

RuthC: What a superb picture, Philip Lanoue, and it deserves to be in second place in this week's challenge. The egret's S curved neck is so pristine white, the beak such a bright orange, and then we have not just one fish, but two! Their squirming, silver bodies add to the drama of the whole scene. A great catch, (except for the hapless fish.) Ruth :-)

Thanks very much Ruth I appreciate the kind words and I'm happy you enjoyed the egret photo!
Bad day for the fish though. :-)

joe6pack: I used the Cinemagraph app by Nokia on Lumia phone and I really like it. That was 2+ years ago. I can't help but think that there are already apps that do that on Android and iOS.

But you don't have to post it on Instagram right?
It gets saved and you can do whatever you want with it later if I'm reading correctly?

In reply to:

j900: The press release forgets to mention that it comes with a scanner for posting your prints to social media.

I hope these prints look better then the ones you got from their Pogo printer which also used the Zink technology to create little sticker prints.
Fun little item but the image quality was fair at best.

In reply to:

RuthC: Wow! That must have been an interesting sight, summicron, and your capture has earned you first place in 'BathTime! (Nature) challenge. Great colours, movement of the spoonbill as well as the 'dancing' waterdrops, and the overall enjoyment of this large bird playing in the bath. Ruth :-)

Super shot! Gotta love a spoonie having a nice splash!

In reply to:

RuthC: Congratulations, Philip Lanoue, on achieving second place in the 'Bath Time! (Nature) challenge. Your snowy egret is having a wonderful time splashing in the water. Contrast of colours and textures in the feathers and shiny water drops make this an excellent example of the theme. Ruth :-)

Thank you very much for your kind comments Ruth. It is actually fairly unusual to see a snowy egret behaving like that. I rarely see one enjoying a nice splash and bath. :-)

I really don't need a constant reminder (and more photographic evidence) of my ever increasing bald spot on the back and top of my head but which looks even worse from above. Yikes

On photo Alligator Wrestles A Raccoon in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (23 comments in total)
In reply to:

Rajeshb: Fantastic shot. But are you sure this is a Raccoon? Looks quite big

Yes this alligator was thrashing and beating the living hell out of that raccoon. He was trying to break it up into smaller pieces for easier swallowing. I've seen them do this with large birds such as pelicans too. They will spend all day beating it up if they have to, and have been known to stash what remains of the carcass with the idea of coming back for it later. They also do indeed like larger prey softened and marinated in the water. Many times I have seen one crunching a crab and they will sort of chew on mouthfuls of small fish but gulp down larger single ones.
The raccoon in this case was long dead.
