Camera Critters 61: We Have Company

Saturday, June 06, 2009
My five year old son is really enthusiastic about taking photos and videos. Whenever he sees one of my cameras laying around, he will grab it and start shooting. I have been saving some of his results to our archives. The photo below is one example. He was storming into the room, while screaming, "Mom, quick! Where is your camera? There are lambs on the field!" He had spotted them from one of our windows at the second floor. I gave him the camera, and off he was to take this photo.


We actually have a lot of critters visiting our area, but I still find it very difficult to capture them on camera. Whenever I'm ready to shoot, they are already gone. I got lucky with this little fellow here who was hoping around on our star fruit tree. Have a wonderful weekend, everybody!

Your son is a great photographer. That is such a lovely, peaceful photo of the lambs.

I love the bird on the star fruit tree too. It's so vivid.

Always such a pleasure to visit with you Rosidah.

Both of my girls are little photog's in the making - and they get some really GREAT results.

That is a great bird shot - they are hard to capture!

I can't believe you had sheep right outside your window! That's really neat! Love your Camera Critters shots this week and all your other great photos this week. I'm sorry I haven't had time to visit on a regular basis lately. I have two more very hectic weeks and then I'll be on my summer break from work for 6 weeks! I can't wait! Have a great weekend and a wonderful week ahead! :-)

Hi Rosidah, The pictures are GREAT. I cannot believe that your 5-year old is so grown-up...

Thanks for the 'critter' pictures.
Hugs,

How absolutely wonderful that you let your five year old use your camera! He's experiencing nature, artistic expression, and your trust all at the same time. And he took a darn fine photo there, to boot!

I know what you mean about not having the camera handy. Yesterday I missed out on a fox, a turkey AND a groundhog.

Thanks for stopping by, and thanks for the follow!

Pictures were taken by your son? Wow, I'm impressed :)

Greyscale Territory said...

Your little guy did a great job getting a lovely balance in the first photo!

And I know how you feel about trying to take bird photos! I have just been struggling today to get a good shot of a crimson rosella for next week's Camera Critters! What a drama!

But your photo turned out so clearly! Well done!

Your son did a great job! But your bird, wow--that's some photograph. You couldn't have paid him to *pose* any better, with the flowers just right. Obvious where your son gets his talent!
