Straight Out of the Camera Sunday



It is Straight Out of the Camera Sunday time.  There are two rules:  1) photo must be taken by you; and 2) no tweaking.  I'm using my wildlife camera photos -- I placed the camera so I'm hoping that fits in the criteria. 


Thought this was a pretty good photo of a deer strolling by the camera. 


Since I've been messing around with the wildlife photos, I've begun to notice "eyes" no matter how insignificant.  If you check the tree on the right in the deer photo above, it is completely dark.  But, in this photo with the yellow circle, you see a reflection.  Owl, maybe?  I've never seen an owl but what else can it be on a tree limb? 

These nighttime photos are not the best quality but really peak my interest and curiosity. Hope it does yours too.   These photos are taken fairly close to the house, but soon the camera will be moved to a more secluded area on the property. 

For more SOOC, go here.

Until next time, God bless.

you got lucky again. last night Hubby told me that he saw a herd at the field. too bad they were all gone when i went out with my camera on hand.

Very interesting. The eyes in the tree could be any critter, I bet you thought it was an owl because you heard it Hoot.

I have never accomplished a shot in the dark. You managed it.

Nice Lynn! I'm also trying to take snapshots at night time but it sometimes gives me a scare, I might snap on something creepy. Well, you did it well and look at those eyes,it's glowing!

Wow that is a great shot...I would love to capture a photo of a deer. It could be an owl in the tree. I just got a tripod for my camera and just tonight went out and took pictures of the moon, it was a success. YAY!

The camera got a great shot of the deer. The mystery eyes, wonder what they belong to? Could be an owl but then possums and raccoons like trees too. I love a mystery.

Seeing your photos inspired me. I ordered a little trail cam the other day. I'm going to put it on our patio and see if it is as busy of a place as I suspect.

On some of our wildlife cam pictures, I opened them up in picture editor and lightened them. Then I could make out the critters better.

Redneck, that's a great idea; don't know why it did not occur to me. lol I will lighten from now on.
