ImageSpotlight: Black-Crested Titmouse

Black-crested Titmouse.  Canon 7D | 500/4.5mm

I returned to South Texas last December and visited my favorite photographic ranch, the Santa Clara, owned by Dr. Beto Gutierrez. I had the good fortune of photographing there the last year before I moved out of state so I know how special this ranch is for photographers. Dr. Gutierrez has poured his passion into making this the prime destination for anyone wanting to photograph the gems of South Texas. This Black Crested Titmouse came to have a drink and I was able to capture this wonderful reflection. The raised crest made this one extra special.

Until next time, good light and keep shooting. –KEVIN

A Few South Texas Birds

Recently, I’ve been reviewing old files and while I’ve been generally pleased with my portfolio, I’ve also wondered exactly what I was thinking by saving many of the images I photographed. I’m going to let you in on a little secret…those soft images you saved years ago…well, they are not going to get sharp by saving them for a few years. Now how many of you reading this are shaking your head thinking, “yep, I’ve done that”. 🙂

Anyway, the images I’m sharing hear were not those of which I just spoke. These images were some I was very pleased with and a few, such as the Green Jay and Oriole above, had never been processed until now. It’s good to go through your old files every now and then, you may be surprised at some of the jewels you overlooked the first time you downloaded your images.
