Sometimes animals and birds seem to pose for a picture. I don't know if that was the case with this American Eagle or if it was just completely luck. I would love to be able to capture more pictures like this in the future. I would need to explore more and get a stronger telephoto lens to get as close as I want. Maybe 2017 will bring me these things.
Dogwood trees lined the roads where I use to live. They were absolutely beautiful in the Spring when they were blooming. The only thing I didn't like about them was that they would blood and then shed so quickly. I love the complete diversity in nature and how two trees or flowers, growing right next to each other, call be so different.
I remember when I took this picture, I was still thinking more about selling photography than sharing it. I thought, 'people would love to get a print of this.' I don't know why I thought that. I don't know why I would have thought that someone would want a print of a No Trespassing sign. Looking at it now though, as just art, I really do love it. I love how the edges are weathered and how the sunlight is scattered on it. I hope you enjoy it.
