They are eating 6 - 7 cups of sugar water a day. My estimate is we have 30 – 50 hummingbirds. I have seen at least 15 birds at once. You can tell  they are fattening up for there long flight to South America they will be making this fall. It took me several attempts to get a good video of them eating. I don’t have it uploaded yet to the website so make sure you check back over the next couple of days to see it.  In the meantime enjoy the couple photographs I have of them.

 

Have a great day and thanks for looking!

Old Meets New https://www.tluphotography.com/blog/2012/8/old-meets-new I went for a photo walk a week ago in downtown Washington Missouri. While I was walking around I started to notice my photos all had something in common, the old buildings had new features. Like new doors, AC, pipes coming out of old coal chute doors, etc. Keep checking back as time permits I will be adding new photos of "Old Meets New" items.

Out of the six photos I took that morning before the rain moved in I like this one the most. 

 

You can see the rest of them here: http://petphotokeepsake.zenfolio.com/p1049282566

 

Make sure you keep checking back I will be adding more photographs as I ahve time to get out and look for more "Old Meets New"

 

 

Have a great day and thanks for looking.

"LaRiviere Courant" https://www.tluphotography.com/blog/2012/7/-lariviere-courant "LaRiviere Courant" is the Osage name for the Current River; it means “Running River”. Pam and I both have spent a life time “playing” along the Current River in Montauk State Park.  We both love spending time in the valley fishing, camping, going for walks and just enjoying life. I hope this photo gives you a glimpse of why we love it.

 

Enjoy and have a great day.

Thanks for looking

Missouri River Bottoms Corn https://www.tluphotography.com/blog/2012/7/missouri-river-bottoms-corn I took this panoramic photo about 3 weeks ago. I have been busy and haven’t had time to do much with the blog. This is 13 photographs stitched together to get the final image that would print out at 15X87 inches. It would take a big wall to hang it on.

You can see the original photo in the Missouri Landscape gallery.

New Camera and lens https://www.tluphotography.com/blog/2012/5/new-camera-and-lens Here are a few I took of Mom and Dad's dogs with the camera system.

The first one was taken with Canon 60D and 17-50 f2.8 Sigma lens.

It was a task trying to get all three to sit and look in the same direction. This was the best we got before they had there fill and said see you later. These next two are taken with Canon 60D and a 50-150 F2.8 Sigma lens.


I'm really impressed with the quality of photos I'm getting with this new set up.

 

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

A great evening at Montauk https://www.tluphotography.com/blog/2012/5/a-great-evening-at-montauk Pam wanted to go fishing so I took off with the camera to Montauk Lake to see what I could find. As soon as I got there Pam called me to let me know there was a different bird near her, one she had never seen before and she had no idea what it was. Reluctantly I turned around and headed back to Pam, I figured it would fly away before I got there. Luckily it was still there. It went from a branch down to the river while people fished within 25 feet of it.  I was able to get a ton of photos; most of them didn’t turn out since it was getting so dark. We figured out it’s a Yellow Crowned Night Heron. The naturalist showed up at his office so I went and got him so he could see it. He said he had never seen one at Montauk and it might be the first confirmed siting of one in a Missouri State Park. If it is he is going to list it as found at Montauk by Pam and I along with one of the photos.

After a while I headed back to the lake to get a panoramic photo of the spring area. It’s one of the best panoramic photos I have taken.

Louisiana Waterthrush https://www.tluphotography.com/blog/2012/5/louisiana-waterthrush I found these two birds yesterday at Montauk State Park. Pam and I think they are Louisiana Waterthrush. I thought it was a couple but then a third bird showed up and it had yellow on the front of it. If you know what they are please post a comment with the correct name. At the end is a short video I took of them it’s not very good since I was hand holding the camera.

 

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Make sure the volume is all the way up so you can hear them chirping.

Clouds on fire https://www.tluphotography.com/blog/2012/5/clouds-on-fire I had high hopes of getting some great moon photos of the May full moon tonight. But as luck would have it storms moved in and headed off to the east creating heavy cloud cover to the east at sunset/moon rise. The sky had cleared to the west so I did get a few great cloud photos with the setting sun lighting the clouds in every color under the rainbow.

The last one was looking to the west.

 

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

“Chewy” https://www.tluphotography.com/blog/2012/4/-chewy Shadow really loves to chew on her raw-hide bone.  I was working with the new camera trying different settings and learning how to use the flash to fire my Speedlight flash.

 

Have a great day!

Montauk State Park https://www.tluphotography.com/blog/2012/4/montauk-state-park These are some photos I took at Montauk State Park today. Pam and I drove down for the day and we meet up with our good friends Brenda and Larry, you can see some of their photos here: http://sweetwatercreekphotography.com/

A special thanks to my Mom and Dad without their help I wouldn’t have been able to take these pictures today.

I don’t know what kind of flowers these are.

These two photos are Bee-Balm. 

 


I don’t know what kind of plant this in but it has a lot of “hairs” around the leaves. If you look at the original photo at 100% you can see them. It was less than two inches tall.

 


This is probably the most twisted tree limb I have ever found. I shot if at f4 you can really see how the depth of field is minimized. Notice the grass on the right side is in focus just like part of the limb.

This is some of the water running out of the “Social Hole” on the spring branch.

I have another photo that Pam thought I staged but I didn’t. For some un-known reason I can’t get it to attach to this blog post. You can go to the gallery to see it.http://petphotokeepsake.zenfolio.com/p201876051/h3309aa0b#h3309aa0b

Ferns in Missouri https://www.tluphotography.com/blog/2012/4/ferns-in-missouri I took these on my way home Thursday night. I took the same photos on Sunday but I didn't have my tripod so they didn't turn out so I had to stop and take them again. I'm very happy with these results. If you like what you see let me know by adding a post.

 

Thanks and enjoy.

Early Spring in Missouri https://www.tluphotography.com/blog/2012/3/early-spring-in-missouri Here in Missouri we have been enjoying record highs for March. Yesterday broke the record for the most days in March over 80 degrees. We have had 9 days so far. All of these warm days we have really moved fast into spring. The Serviceberry trees are almost done blooming and the Redbuds are in full bloom.

I took these in our backyard tonight.

I was hoping to get the large clusters of flowers on the branches but it was too windy so I had to stick with the clusters on the main branches.

 

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Missouri Sunrise https://www.tluphotography.com/blog/2012/3/missouri-sunrise God blessed us here in Missouri with another spectacular sunrise. 

The Barred Owl started out sitting on the power line I noticed him when I took Shadow outside. I was really wishing he would stay on the power line so I could get a photo of him but he flew away. I looked around and spotted him in the tree across the highway from us. I grabbed my camera and went back out hoping he would stay long enough to get at least one good photo of him. As you can see he waited for me. 

After a couple of minutes I started concentrating on the sunrise. I think I nailed it with this first one, what do you think?

 

As usual work got in the way so I packed it up after getting this close-up of the clouds.  What do you think of this one? I’m not sure if I got it the best I could have.

 

Thanks for stopping in and looking around.

Have a great day!

Tim

Reifsnider Conservation Area https://www.tluphotography.com/blog/2012/3/reifsnider-conservation-area I went to Reifsnider Conservation Area this morning. I found these two flowers. I wish I would have used a fill flash on this one to soften the hard shadows. I have no idea what kind of flower it is.

This one looks like a Dutchman ’s Breeches to me.

Shadow waiting for her new friend https://www.tluphotography.com/blog/2012/2/shadow-waiting-for-her-new-friend Shadow got to go to the dog park in Washington again today. Here she is sitting at the fence waiting for Charlie to get out of the car and in the park so they could play. Shadow and Charlie both came from the Humane Society in Union.  This was the first time they played together and they really hit it off. They had a great time.

Shadow https://www.tluphotography.com/blog/2012/2/shadow

This is Shadow.

We rescued Shadow one year ago from Franklin County Humane Society.  She has helped fill the hole left by Molly passing.  She loves to go to the dog park and just run around. She really enjoys seeing other dogs at the park.  This isn’t a very good photo but it’s about the best I can get with my old camera.
