The birds are back, which means it's time for me to try to get pictures again. I was definitely not cut out to be a wildlife photographer, to do it well requires too much patience and willingness to sit in cold swamps and things....But there was a pair of swans on a pond near my house, with a parking spot even, so I made another attempt. I had a nice, sunny spot, so no sitting in swamps...The next challenge is to get them when they are not feeding or sleeping, or just in some really weird position...
They usually look like this...
It was also a little too bright out, but luckily I usually just need the shape of the bird to use in my quilts, so I think I got a few that should work. I'll leave the fancy stuff to Mark "Sparky" Stensaas...http://www.sparkyphotos.com/
I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing! After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now designing kits and patterns. Some of them have even been in Keepsake Quilting! I teach classes at local quilt shops, and would love to do more traveling and teaching eventually. I also have many tutorials, including some on you tube. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
