Visual art & nature photography by Teresa M. Stieben BFA with distinction.
Join me as I find inspiration in the natural world of birds and wildlife which I transform into subtle watercolor or bold acrylic paintings.
As we were driving I spotted these birds, placed my camera out the window and started rapid fire shooting as we have from experience found that the hawks rapidly take flight if we stop.
As it was the hawk took to wing anyhow, but I kept my trigger finger busy. This shot is cropped.
This fella was apparently amidst a meal, which he took with him, to the fence post.
Here he paused momentarily before once again taking flight across the fields. It looks like he was dining on a big ground squirrel. This shot is cropped in half as well. I was using a 300mm lens. The shots worked far better than I would have imaged they would for a drive by shooting. Just look at that beautiful rusty tail. I think this image would make a good painting.
Hello and welcome to my fine art and photography blog where I hope to inspire awe of the natural world. Where you get to slow down and enjoy the gifts of Creation, especially the winged ones. Venture with me as I create from my experiences of traversing Alberta Canada with my camera to capture birds and wildlife and turn the images into works of art. And please do leave me a note of encouragement via comments, thank you.
