Gailen Mapes69,130Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera A-C - 14 of 31Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members. These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to October 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting September 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-10-14 10:53:56206001

Gailen Mapes66,836Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  A-C - 14 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-08-14 10:24:52192005

Drinking up nectar with a floral straw!!!
Not the best hummer shot but so thrilled to have captured this hummingbird sucking up nectar from our Agastache blooms while perching! This was shot through our morning room glass window!
Do you also know that hummingbirds only spend 15% of any day in flight and the rest they spend perching, resting up and digesting?!
Since they are very tiny birds we notice them more in flight when they move and forage in short, sharp bursts around our feeders and in their favorite flowers.

Looking up!  There's always more nectar at the rosy Agastache!

So the hummingbirds are gone and all that's left are images of summer's past!
Taken a week from today with feelings of separation anxiety :(
Took down all the feeders except one, hoping there might be a migrant passing through and needing a drink or two.
Hope this image brings you cheer and happy weekend to you all!

A Hummer's Happy Hour at the Mint Bar
(.....and an invitation to read this post and view each image)

Sharing with you today my Final album representing isolation concepts I’ve learned from the 8 week mentorship program on Subject Isolation and Story Telling led by the most talented and brilliant photographer +Sam Breach,  under the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers .  For this graduation album we had to come up with a Body of Work (series of images with a common theme) and I chose to photograph hummingbirds on flowers. These images were all shot last Sunday Sept. 14, 2014. A bittersweet parting finale as this was also the last week that the hummers are still around before they migrate down south for the winter.  True enough, early this morning the last hummingbird in my neck of the woods may have left as I have not seen a single hummer on any of our feeders today.

A Hummer's Happy Hour at the Mint Bar
(.....and an invitation to read this post and view each image)

Sharing with you today my Final album representing isolation concepts I’ve learned from the 8 week mentorship program on Subject Isolation and Story Telling led by the most talented and brilliant photographer +Sam Breach,  under the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers .  For this graduation album we had to come up with a Body of Work (series of images with a common theme) and I chose to photograph hummingbirds on flowers. These images were all shot last Sunday Sept. 14, 2014. A bittersweet parting finale as this was also the last week that the hummers are still around before they migrate down south for the winter.  True enough, early this morning the last hummingbird in my neck of the woods may have left as I have not seen a single hummer on any of our feeders today.

I have learned so much from this 8 week mentorship not only about subject isolation techniques (via colors, textures, contrast, depth of field, light and shadows, etc) but also paying attention to details, knowing your subject, planning your shot, envisioning and conveying the story.  I will continue to share assignment shots from concepts I’ve learned in the days to come. This mentorship has also given me a new and better way of looking at things around me and has boosted my confidence to try out new subjects, new perspectives and more importantly new approaches when photographing my favorite subjects as I am by heart a nature photographer. Hopefully over time I will develop a style from the valuable knowledge gained from this mentorship and likewise continue to proactively seek, practice and venture into new subjects.

A wholehearted thanks again +Sam Breach  for your steadfast leadership, inspiration and generosity of your time (as tight and demanding your work schedule is, you still found the time to view, analyze and comment at every image that every student has submitted in this mentorship). Thank you to the support crew of this mentorship for your encouragement and positive words, most especially to +Diana Boyd and +Elizabeth Lund  who have also viewed and commented at every album shared! Diana and Elizabeth you are both amazing super supporters/moderators. Huge thanks to all my fellow mentees whose talents, enthusiasm and peer support has continued to amaze and inspire me each week.  Thank you for the new found friendships that I hope to carry on in this great platform that connects us all. Last but not least thank you to the directors of the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers  (+Robin Griggs Wood  +Ron Clifford and +Tamara Pruessner ) for continuing to provide valuable access and learning opportunities to photographers here in G+!

I highly recommend this mentorship program to all those interested to further their photography knowledge and experience!

The Monarch captured 9/17/14 and a celebration of royalty!

After not seeing one this summer season, I couldn't believe I saw one yesterday and saw 2 more today. Monarchs are now a threatened species because of their dwindling numbers ( a decline of 90% in under 20 years due to habitat loss).

Tiny fluffy feathers on guard duty!!!

A female hummingbird up close on her favorite perch and intently guarding the nearby feeder.  In the background is a fading liatris bloom. Just saying hello and hi to all and I'll be back here soon on a regular posting schedule.
We are on the 7th week of the Isolation Mentorship by +Sam Breach and I have learned so much from this mentorship. This is one of the images I shared in Week 4 where we learned about color and  texture contrasts. I hope to share a variety of images with you soon from what I have learned from the mentorship;  in addition to my usual subjects of birds and florals.

Another  *Ruby Throated Hummingbird*, this time on our red Bee Balm blooms (a few days ago I shared a hummer feeding on the pink blooms)! 
This is the month that hummingbirds are very active around feeders and flowers as they are fattening up for their trip down south across the Gulf of Mexico, their winter home. We only have a month or so left to enjoy them.

Thursday Double Treat!
A Fritillary and an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail butterflies on our Joe Pye weed. Joe Pye blooms are a favorite of pollinators like bees and butterflies. They are hardy perennials and bloom in the summer. Planting these in your yard will bring in the butterflies and bees!

A hummingbird enjoying nectar of our pink Bee Balm blooms (Monarda or Bergamot). Hummers love these blooms so we planted red ones and pink ones near the feeders and they stop by these blooms at least twice a day.

Cloudless Sulphur Butterfly on our Milkweed blooms!
This is the time of year that I capture and share a lot of butterflies (so pardon the many butterfly shares :D) The background is a bag of Miracle-Gro (if you garden, you know the colors of this bag and now I realize that they make an awesome background like this shot)!

White Bleeding Hearts
May peace, love and compassion reign in our hearts in these difficult times of tragedy, sorrow and conflict!
I will be on very limited G+ time in the next 2 months due to an ongoing mentorship training, but will continue to post but with lesser interactions. I will try to visit your wonderful posts when I get the chance.
Goodnight G+ and wish you all the best this week!

A Great Spangled Fritillary! .....another butterfly species on our pink Buddleia!
Catching up here in G+ as I have been away for a much needed vacation at the beach (Outer Banks, NC). Hope everyone is enjoying the summer and wish you all a great weekend!
(Please also note that Buddleia is a non native bush in the US and very invasive so I suggest you plant these in containers and not on the ground)

(Note: Buddleia is a non-native, invasive plant species here in the U.S. and should be planted in containers if you have them in the garden or continually pruned if you have them planted on the ground!)

I think I'm getting too heavy for this leaf! .........

A seven spotted ladybug or ladybird on our Joe Pye weed leaf! Ladybugs are beneficial insects as they consume aphids (as much as 50 to 60 a day or 5,000 in its lifetime) and other harmful plant insects like mealy bugs and mites. They are a natural pest control to our gardens and very pretty for pictures too!

Summertime is also butterfly time! This is a Spicebush Swallowtail (Papilio troilus) captured this weekend on our blooming milkweed  (Asclepias tuberosa)! Milkweeds are very vital to the existence of the Monarch butterfly whose numbers are dwindling each year. So I decided to plant them this year. If you garden or have a yard, I encourage you to plant some.  Milkweed are host plants to the Monarch (They lay eggs only on Milkweed and the Monarch caterpillars feed on their leaves). Milkweed blooms are also nectar food to other adult butterflies like this spicebush swallowtail and other pollinators!

This was my entry for the theme "PHOTOGRAPHER" in +Chrysta Rae 's #scavengerhunt  ! Check out the winners in the +Chrysta Rae 's page! It's great fun and a wonderful learning experience to participate in the hunt. I normally don't take these types of shots so it was a good practice for me to capture candid shots of strangers. Good night everyone!

Hello everyone! Just got back from a long road trip while the #scavengerhunt  reveals by +Chrysta Rae is going on. This is my entry for theme FLEXIBILITY! Not a winning shot but I'm glad I participated as the #scavengerhunt  always motivates me to go out of my comfort zone and take shots that I don't normally do. Check out the other entries in this album and also check out the winners in +Chrysta Rae 's page.

Almost there!! 

A ladybug (or ladybird...if you're across the pond) on a tip of a leaf! The red background is a garden bucket!
