Pileated Woodpecker

one of the biggest forest birds on the continent. It’s nearly the size of a crow. Tough shot, heavy shade, backlit, gives no feather detail, but what a bird!

I guess this is something

Everyone is invited to a Custom Car Show Circa 1991

Brought to you by Kodachrome, They give us those nice bright colors, even after 30 years

See how many self-portraits of moi you can find, lol


Everyone is invited!

Just finished the initial build of a website for my photography

I have looked for some time for the best way to share with family and friends. Many thanks to AndyS for pointing me to SmugMug, it fits my style and purpose more than the first site I tried, and is in a different league altogether from my FB photography page.

You are all invited to view the work, at https://jamesdevore.smugmug.com/

I apologize in advance for the sheer quantity of photos., 60 years behind a camera creates a diverse wide-ranging set of subjects. Even so, there is more to come as slides are scanned and I assign myself new projects.

Linger on the homepage for a sample slideshow and then hit BROWSE to enter. The NEW! NEW! NEW! button on the home page leads to the most recent additions and will allow viewing just those when alerted. Please share with anyone you think might be interested.

Certainly, any comments or questions are welcomed and I hope you enjoy!

Another late afternoon shot I consider a failure

I can imagine this with the moon as sharp as the vulture photo and will keep trying to achieve that.

This failed because somehow my shutter speed was 1/100 sec, waaaaaaaaay too slow for this shot which introduced fatal motion blur. I was able to save the heat signature behind the plane. Neither the plane nor the moon are of acceptable quality and I will not add this to my website.

This plane is at 5000' and 5 nautical miles, on approach to TIA. What I am really after is one at 35,000' with a nice contrail crossing the moon, similar to the 747 I posted a couple of week ago. This has been elusive!

Again with my vulture friend!

This moon cycle

I became interested in what I could catch as it began rising around 4PM, among others.................more to come once this front passes!

my old friend, the Turkey Vulture. Only bats could be better for this photo

And this Atlas Air (Amazon) 747 departing Miami due north up the peninsula

NyQuil isn't a cure-all for omicron variant

According to a meme of actor Will Smith, the omicron variant of COVID-19 is easy to treat with common cold medicine.

Several Facebook users, including conservative politician Kimberly Klacik, shared a two-part image listing the “top five” omicron symptoms, which it says are runny nose, headache, fatigue, sneezing and sore throat. At the bottom of the picture is an image of Smith, pointing to a bottle of NyQuil, which lists those very symptoms.

“Will Smith has the prescription,” Klacik wrote.

“So… NyQuil was always the cure?” a commenter wrote on a similar post. “Better than the (vaccine emoji).”


I have reached LIGHT nirvana with a Turkey Vulture

if not QUALITY/DETAIL nirvana.

Had they not been so high there would be more detail, but then I might not have been able to track him as well. Either way, I'm majorly satisfied with this one.

The little inset is how he looked in the viewfinder @ 1200mm, so you know he was up there.😁

Bird on Bamboo

I was surprised by the colors in this bamboo in the setting sun and how it looks like a perfect Florida style Christmas tree!
