Weekly Prompt Photo Challenge:  Flamboyant-Red

Lens-Artist-PC-63-Magic-of-Photography

 

~~~~~

I’m late this week because I have been

contemplating how to approach this challenge.


I was photographing the acrobatics

of this Red Weaver in Botswana, when…

…it suddenly dropped away.

I managed to captured this image

before it disappeared.

These two shots were taken only seconds apart

with different camera settings.

 

 

Changing the shutter speed to 1/200

and the aperture to f 8.0

produces a gloomier morning sky and

accentuates the sun’s rays.

And the results may be seen within seconds.

That is what I deem to be

the magic of modern photography.

Commencing with the hardest to see red…

That little patch of red on the Red Rump Parrot. 

Although this weaver appears orange,

or close to it, it is known as

the Red Weaver. 

Sighted in Botswana. 

Spread throughout Africa?

 

I wonder what’s behind the red doors?

I turned to nature for details

again this week.A Red Headed Weaver

 

Not often we can get this close to  a giraffe.


The gives a trunk a whole new look.


A tusk

I did not know that twice the circumference of

an elephant’s front foot equalled the distance

from its shoulder to the ground.

 Or, that its front foot is circular…


while its rear feet were oval in shape.


And while I took  those photos it was

keeping an eye on me.

 

Admittedly I have edited this photo

to accentuate the stripes.


However, I could not have achieved that clarity

if it had been the other end of the zebra. 

This is both ends of one animal.
