The first Monday of the month challenge from Lens and Pens by Sally is nature.
A couple of weeks ago I was sitting in my living room and heard a big ruckus in the back yard. I ran out because our neighborhood has some stray cats and I was afraid some vulture or something was attacking. Much to my surprise, I saw two large birds that looked like white owls, who were either fighting or mating, fall from the tree. When I realized, I quickly ran back into the house to grab my phone. By the time I got back out, one was flying away and the other one was waaaayy up in another tree. I zoomed my lens and quickly tried to catch him as best I could. He/she was so pretty. It’s just not a sight I see around here very often, especially in the day time. It was shot with my iPhone5 and just cropped a bit in Fotor. I realize it’s not a very good shot because you can barely see the owl and it’s blurry.
The next one is an early morning sunrise that was taken at Lake Apopka this past May using my iPhone5. I have not edited it. How many birds can you find? Can you find the alligator?
