I previously worked as a news and sports photographer. Recently I have been enjoying wildlife photography. My approach toward bird photos is similar to sports photography. I attempt to capture mostly action and hopefully a unique perspective.
On a recent evening this fish blows out one last drop of water after being plucked out of the marsh by a great blue heron.
So it goes in nature…one creature’s life comes to an end to help ensure the survival of another.
Thanks, appreciate it!
Ottimo e superbo scatto Phil!!
Grazie per le tue parole molto gentili Pat!
This calls for a contemplative country song…don’t you think?! 😀 Phil, thank you for letting us empathize with your life size subjects!
Yes indeed, I believe we do have the fundamentals here for a hit country song! 🙂
Great shot, Phil!!
Well I’m happy you liked it!
Great title, Phil! What a candid shot, which leaves nothing to the imagination.
I was concerned when posting this that once again I would be subjecting you to more sad fishie faces. Between that and alligator fights it’s been a tough week out there at the marsh. 🙂
Certainly does look that way, Phil. My heart is becoming hardened towards those poor fishies. 😳
Those poor fish do seem to meet their untimely demise quite often don’t they?!
This looks award winning, Phil! A gorgeous shot.
How are you feeling, my friend?
Hey I’m happy you enjoyed this GBH photo!
Well… no I have the cardiologist involved and am starting on a heart monitor today. It seems never ending but I’m hanging in.
Oh, and the cat is sick now. Heading to the vet shortly. Like I said, it never ends.
Oh dear, – I’m so sorry, Phil. I hope the monitoring did some good for you. How’s the cat now?
I’ll keep my fingers crossed that it soon turns for the better. Hang on in there!
The stupid monitor hasn’t even shown up in the mail yet. Probably just as well as my stress level is through the roof trying to help the cat get over her eye surgery from yesterday. They managed to save her eye but recovery will not be easy. Of well it’s always something.
I’m absolutely amazed to read that heart monitors are forwarded per post! Hope you’ll all get over the eye surgery pretty soon. You have had your fair share of almost everything now. Get well soon!
Just found out today there was a screw up and they never sent it! Now I won’t have it until next week. Unreal.
This is where I go “Aaah” and Thea says “But Grannie, it’s the food chain”! Quite right, of course!
Thea is quite wise and of course quite correct. Even scenes which we may find uncomfortable, and still a part of nature. I bet she would love our fun, happy alligators! 🙂
Beautiful Shot, georgous Bird.
They are nice looking birds for sure. Thanks for checking out this photo!
Thanks for checking it out.
Perfectly timed capture. Great title.
I appreciate that, thank you.
The circle of life – caught beautifully.
It does sometimes seem like these poor fish have only one purpose in life. Oh well, keeps the birds happy.
Thanks I’m glad you liked this GBH photo!
So it goes… Amazing details of the photo!
Thanks Amy I appreciate you checking it out!
so sharp Phil – at the death so to speak
Thanks for looking Scott and glad you liked this heron photo!
I comment whenever I appreciate a post on a site or if I
have something to add to the discussion. It’s caused by the sincerness displayed in the article I
browsed. And on this post Last Gasp | Phil Lanoue Photography.
I was actually excited enough to create a leave a responsea response 😉 I actually do have a few questions for you if you don’t mind.
Could it be simply me or do a few of these remarks appear as if they are
coming from brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are posting at additional social sites, I would like to follow you.
Would you make a list every one of all your public pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
