Clover flower in the short grass

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Things that are Short.

I had a couple of ideas for the challenge before thinking of my ground pod, a low camera support I use for getting down to eye level with birds and mammals on the ground.

Then I remembered photographing Clover flowers a couple of times when the birds and mammals weren’t cooperating.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Yard

One thing came to mind as soon as I read the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Yard prompt.

That was spending hours in our yard in 2018 when I was doing a 52 week photo project.

So I thought I would go with a small selection of photos taken in the yard during 2018.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Waiting

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Waiting.

I had a couple of ideas for the challenge before thinking of some of the photos I had taken waiting for various birds and mammals to make an appearance in front of the lens.

The following shots were taken in our yard in 2018 when I was doing my 52 week photo project.

I noticed the way a beam of light was illuminating a patch of Maple leaves.

I set up in the yard to photograph birds in the rain. When the birds weren’t cooperating I photographed rain drops.

Simplicity.

Clover flower.

When you’re lying in the yard and the birds and mammals won’t cooperate you photograph the Clover flowers in the grass.
