The Gallery - Week 72 - Animals


I like a challenge and I enjoyed this one immensely :)
I'm pleased I stumbled across The Gallery because I love taking photos and I'm always trying to improve my limited skills! I only have my camera phone but from what I've read, it's quite good and can do lots of things I never knew about.
I decided to do some investigation and found that I can change the settings to take better pictures of things like ladybirds and ants so guess what I've been doing all morning.....yep, chasing bugs round the garden, trying to get them to sit still and smile for the camera. They seem a little a camera shy if you ask me but I did manage to grab a few good shots before they realised what I was doing. You have to be sneaky when it comes to bugs you know!

Here's my entry to this weeks Gallery.
This spider was sitting on the blanket on a chair outside. I'm so pleased I noticed it before sitting down!

Just after I got the spider, a bird came for some food and stayed still long enough to have his picture taken. I think he was posing really!


I look forward to checking out all the other entries over the coming week :)

  3. I wonder if the bird ever got the spider or perhaps it wanted something bigger?!

    You reminded me of the old woman who swallowed a fly, Melksham Mum....that would have a been a good challenge if I'd have followed that theme!! :)
