Gailen Mapes73,565Hand 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 December 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting November 7th.)  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   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2014-12-14 12:07:07194000

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

A young female Ruby Throated Hummingbird perched on a plant stake at our garden. Behind her are the white hydrangeas and to the right some pink roses. The tiniest of birds and no doubt the cutest! Happy Monday everyone!

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.
Hope you all have a great Tuesday and a special thank you to all those who contributed to #backyardbirdingmonday  +Backyard Birding Monday #BackyardbirdingMonday ! I hope to visit your posts tomorrow.

A European Starling in winter plumage, photographed a few days ago. The white spots in their feathers turn dark and glossy during summer.
All the European Starlings in North America descended from 100 birds set loose in New York's Central Park in the early 1890s. The birds were intentionally released by a group who wanted America to have all the birds that Shakespeare ever mentioned. It took several tries, but eventually the population took off. Today, more than 200 million European Starlings range from Alaska to Mexico, and many people consider them pests, especially that they overrun nesting cavities of native bird populations like the blue birds.

Thank you +Sharon Stone for the tip.

The trees at Skyline Drive in autumn colors! (Best viewed large!) Skyline Drive is a 105-mile road that runs the entire length of the Shenandoah National Park in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. It is a must see this time of year.

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.

Lots of butterflies on our flowers this weekend and here's a Spicebush Swallowtail on Buddleia! Hello G+, hope this image finds you well!

I've been busy with work, home and the Isolation Mentorship Programme and hope to be back here regularly next month.

A young female Ruby Throated Hummingbird perched on a plant stake at our garden. Behind her are the white hydrangeas and to the right some pink roses. The tiniest of birds and no doubt the cutest! Happy Monday everyone!
