The two photos at the bottom, the top one when enlarged it really is a very nice photo. Shows off all of his feathers and the colors are so bright. But he doesn't look too great from the back side. LOL I guess that's life, sometimes the backsides don't look that great.

Sounds like another storm is coming.

I have been reading your blog for some time now. Got here from your Dad's blog. We used to have peacocks across the street from us a few years ago and they really are beautiful birds. However, they are also noisy. Keep up the good work.

Melinda, I came over from your dads sight....you have a special gift at taking pictures....and I too am always going to read the manual...I probably wouldn't be that bad if I would give up the trial and error bit, and just read....your dad is a fabulous photographer....I love his pictures....I too live in OHIO... and sometimes I have to hunt for pictures to take....for Toledo is not that picturesque....nice peacocks..... judy

Melinda said...

thanks for stopping by and the comments judy.....I like the ease of just pointing and shooting....no questions....just doing it..I enjoy that much more than having to get things just so-so or ready before snapping away!

Love that first peacock photo -- the blue is incredible, and the "eyes" in the feathers really stand out.

And, hey Melinda, is Abraham Lincoln really your father?

Melinda said...

Aphotoaday.....yes.......he is really my father!
