Gailen Mapes61,972Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  I-K - 6 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 April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.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 +Gailen Mapes2014-04-06 11:21:01133427CC G+

All of them are real active people, some have been active since I began sharing my photos and still are and some I have seen only for a shorter time.I have separated my Thank you circle into four circles. There is no difference between them except for different people to say thank you to.I already work on the next "Thank you circle"  So if you are missing here, you will be in it if you are active from this week. I do not expect you to like all my photos, so please only plus the ones you like! If I see you twice in a months time I will add you.The four circles is collected from middle of November until now. In parallel I am building a new circle that I started a month ago. In a months time the people in the new circle will be shared. The old one will be kept as reference to add people that return after a longer break.  I use #Circloscope premium to help me manage, but the rotation from the old circle to the new is the only way people gets kicked out. http://www.circloscope.com/2013/04/google-plus-circle-management-tool.html +CircloscopeA bit of caution here, I do NOT check the quality of what my engagers share.

Thomas Hawk6,146,1772500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 3 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Last week I shared last name A-Da, and Da-Ho.  Today's , part 3 of 5, today, represents Ho-Mi.  I'll share the remaining two tomorrow and Thursday.  I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for parts 4 and 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OC*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of "domain errors."  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-03 18:49:364857231117CC G+

Pic 4 Today : Purple Gallinule!

The Purple Gallinule is not particularly a hard bird to see. You just have to be in the right place in its limited range at the right time. It is just that I never seem to be there. I saw a male in Florida on my first birding trip there 11 years ago, and a female two trips back, but other than that...nada. So to say that I was excited to see one at the Smith's Oaks rookery on High Island Texas is an understatement. I got some shots of it peaking and poking among the vegitation, but just before I left, it popped up on top for just a few seconds and I got off a few full body shots. I did not have time, even, to shift the camera out of flight mode, so the rapidly moving bird is not tack sharp. Not the best, but my best so far!

Pic 4 Today : Smith's Oaks Spoonbills

We will drop back this morning...a week and a bit...to my visit to the Rookery at Smith's Oaks on High Island in Texas. I have seen Spoonbills nesting before but never in the numbers that frequent High Island. I took the opportunity to practice my flight shot techniques,  since I had numbers of cooperative subjects. There are really few birds as striking as a Roseate Spoonbill in full breeding plumage. Odd. But still striking. :-)

Pic 4 Today : Nest Building among the Wrens

Along the edge of one of the ponds at Arcata Marsh Nature Center there was a male Marsh Wren guarding territory and building a nest every 100 feet or so. We had a chance to compare three males working closely together. Nearest the corner of the pond was Macho Wren. He seemed to think that zipping rapidly back and forth across the corner of the pond, singing loudly (and not very musically), with his tail cooked up tight over his back in maximum excitement posture would win him a female, even though we never saw him actually do any work on a nest. Next down the shore was The Rookie. Clearly a first year male, this wren picked up the right materials and brought them to the nest site, but generally dropped them before getting them into the nest. He had read the instructions in his genetic code...but did not quite understand the point of them. Finally... more »

Pic 4 Today : Sing out the News! Happy Easter!

Shout it out. Sing it out. He is risen. He lives! And because he is risen we live. Because he lives our lives are a celebration. If only we could be always as simple (and as infectious) as the wren!

Happy Easter.

Pic 4 Today : Marsh Wren Trimuphant

They call the festival "Godwit Days", and when the migrating Godwits are in the bay on the mud flats in their 300,000s, it certainly justifies the name, but Arcata California in the spring will, for me, forever be about the Marsh Wren. I know of no where with a similar abundance of wrens. On a good day, there is a singing male every 30 feet or so along the cattail shore of many of the ponds at Arcata Marsh Nature Center at the edge of town. This year they seem to be past establishing territory. Most of the males I saw were collecting nest materials, and only taking a few moments out to sing over their work. That still gave me several opportunities to shoot the singing males on reed tops or sharp folds in last year's leaves.

On a good day, the spring light in Arcata is also just right for wrens...with just enough warmth to bring... more »

Pic 4 Today : Texas Paintbrush

My day on the Bolivar Peninsula was mostly dreary weather-wise, but the light was excellent for photographing detail, as in these Texas Paintbrush flowers that lined many of the roads at the tip of the peninsula. After I had passed about my dozenth stand of them, I managed to get the car off the road in a sheltered spot and take a few photos. They are beautiful flowers, intense enough for even a dull day.

Pic 4 Today : Avenue of the Giants

Switching gears from the Gulf Coast of Texas to the coast of Northern Californica, I am in Arcata CA for Godwit Days. I always fly to San Francisco (it is expensive to fly to Arcata) and drive half way up Rt 101, stay the night in Ukiah, and then drive up through the Redwood forests of Humboldt Redwoods State Park the next morning. My yearly dose of Redwoods. There is a road that parallels 101 called the Avenue of the Giants...which winds through the major Groves of the Park in the valley of the Eel River. Miles of huge trees and dappled light.

Pic 4 Today : Twofer on Rails

I don't see many Rails in Maine. The Sora, a least should be there, but, evidently I am not often where it is. So when a friend told me about an easy Sora in a ditch along 8 Mile road on Galveston Island while I was at Feather Fest last week, I had to go see. And wouldn't you now, while photographing the Sora (which was as easy as promised) what should wander out in same section of ditch but a Clapper Rail. The Clapper is much more restricted in its range, and, according to the range maps, does not reach Maine at all, so it was a real treat.

Pic 4 Today : Nest Building Egrets

As I mentioned yesterday, I had an amazing Sunday on the Bolivar Peninsula, starting with yesterday's canopy feeding Reddish Egret, moving on through Skimmers, Gulls, and Terns at Rollover, and finishing up with a visit to the rookery at Smith's Oaks on High Island. The rookery has recovered well from the almost total devastation of the hurricane. The smaller trees are growing in nicely to replace the giants that the birds used for nesting, and with a few impromptu platforms placed on the stumps of the larger trees, the birds have adapted. In many ways, from a photographer's point of view, the rookery is a better place today than it was before the storm. The birds are considerably more visible than I remember from my last visit (but that was at least 10 years ago, so I do not count too much on the memory). At any rate, the rookery made a... more »

Pic 4 Today : Reddish Egret Canopy Feeding

I saw my first Reddish Egret, and my first Reddish Egret canopy feeding, 11 years ago at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge on my first visit to the Space Coast Birding Festival. I have attempted to catch that behavior 100s of times since...on each encounter with a cooperative Reddish Egret...but, for 11 years, the image has eluded me. I have come close...but never close enough. :-) Yesterday, at my very first stop at the very tip of the Bolivar Peninsula in Texas, barely 5 minutes off the ferry, all that changed. This Reddish Egret made up for all the others. It was close, and it was actively canopy feeding. My new Olympus OM-D E-M10 with 75-300mm zoom might be just a shade more capable then the super-zooms I have used in the past. I now have a very satisfying set of Reddish Egret canopy feeding in almost every pose imaginable!

Pic 4 Today : Tern Dive. Happy Sunday!

My visit to Galveston Island State Park on Friday morning provided an opportunity to practice catching Common Terns in flight. There was a long boardwalk across one of the channels and the Terns were hunting on either side, often quite close to where I stood. They hover, which makes them easier than most birds to catch...but they also dive out of their hover to take fish. I only caught the dive twice in a half hour of shooting.

This is a crop from a 600mm equivalent shot. I was using my personal flight shot program on the Olympus OM-D E-M10. ISO 200 @ 1/640th @ f10. Processed in Snapseed on my tablet.

And for the Sunday Thought: Terns are among the most graceful of flyers...quick, agile...with long flexible wings, and lovely tail extensions on either side. Watching them always fills me with a mix of awe and joy...an almost giddy... more »

Pic 4 Today : Little Green Metalic Bee in Heaven

I think this flower is just Spiderwort. I found it growing at Galveston State Park yesterday morning. I had my screw-on macro lens attached to the 16-50mm zoom on the Sony NEX 3NL and was taking some Wildflower shots in general before I noticed the tiny Metalic Bee working the blue flowers.

Camera as above. ISO 200 @ 1/250th @ f8. Processed in Snapseed on my tablet.

Pic 4 Today : Texas Wildflower Action

After a day of setting up the booth and then tending it from noon until 6pm at the Galveston Feather Fest yesterday, my shutter finger was getting so twitchy that I begged off on the evening's dinner plans at Bennos Cajun Seafood in order to visit Corps Woods Nature Reserve for a hour or so while we still had light. Corps Woods is a patch of, basically, waste ground along a ditch and a seep across the road from the Coast Guard compound, with a few taller cottonwoods to justify the "woods". There is a Bushwacked trail and two short boardwalks to observation decks along the seep. Though the birding was pretty slow...there were a few wildflowers to entertain. And I did manage a few shots of a Yellow-crowned Nightheron through heavy brush. All in all my hour there was certainly as satisfying as Cajun seafood :-)

We have here, I... more »

Pic 4 Today : Shaggy Pelican in Flight

I am in Galveston Texas for a few days for Feather Fest...a birding and nature festival held on the island each April (except for the year the hurricane came through). I was here the year after the hurricane when there was still a lot of visible damage. It is remarkable how fast a thriving tourist attraction can heal from even a major disaster.

One of the things about Galveston for the nature photographer, of course, is the Pelicans. I think there are more Brown Pelicans in the air over Galveston and in the waters just offshore at any one moment than I have seen in all my trips to other Pelican hangouts. I did not get checked in at the hotel until close to 5 PM, but that did not stop me from spending an hour on the beach right across the road shooting Pelicans in the air before finding supper. I have to say, the Galveston Pelicans are a... more »

Pic 4 Today : Goldfinches in the Thistle

The male Goldfinches in Columbus Ohio were just coming into their breeding/summer plumage. The bright yellow was patchy and the black cap was more a salt and pepper effect...with the pepper just beginning to hold its own. While they come to our feeders in Maine, it is always wonderful too see them in their native element...in a field of Thistle like this one, working the heads for left over seed.

Pic 4 Today : Tree Swallows at Play

Yes I know it is an anthropomorphic reach to call what Swallows do around a nest box or favorite perch play,  but to those of us who have the habit it certainly looks like play. At the very least it looks like it would be a lot of fun :-). This is on the grounds of the Grange Insurance Audubon Center in Columbus Ohio.

Pic 4 Today : Goosey. Goosey. Happy Sunday.

Canada Geese have gotten so numerous in New England, all year around were there is enough food and some water they can keep open with their coming and going, and so tame in some locations, that, if you stand relatively still, they will feed within yards of you. These are big birds to have at your feet, but, except when defending young, they are the most peaceable of aquaintances...far less agressive, in fact, than your average barnyard goose. This specimen was on the grounds of the Grange Insurance Audubon Center in Columbus Ohio. I was there early yesterday for the Birding Optics and Gear Expo, while the promised sunny day was still well cloaked in clouds, the temperature was way too low in the steady wind, and the light was just barely adequate for photography...but I could not resist a few close-ups of the feeding Geese when they offered to... more »

Pic 4 Today : Yellow-bellied Sapsucker

Someone (and I am embarrassed to say I can't remember who) posted on Facebook last week that they were tired of showing New England winter birds and needed to plan a trip to somewhere more exoitc. I replied that I was in the same boat with Maine birds (especially now that our winter Eagles have dispersed for spring, and our resident Snowy Owl has headed north) but, luckily, I already had a trip planned to Columbus Ohio for the weekend :-)

Little did I know. I got out yesterday for about an hour between rain storms at the Grange Insurance Audubon Center in Columbus to see what I could see. There is always a good variety of whatever is happening in Ohio at the moment at the feeders, and along the river walk and through the meadows, of the GIAC. And, really, what could be more exotic (at least exotic looking) than a Yellow-bellied... more »

Pic 4 Today : Spring Tide

We have had really high tides the past week, flooding parts of the marsh that I have never seen under water. This area along the Kennebunk Bridle Path normally remains high and dry at the highest tides. These high, spring tides, are, I hope, another sign that Spring is finally coming to Southern Maine. Here, with the transparency of the sea water, the wind ripples, and the clear light, it makes an excellent subject for HDR. This is my usual single frame HDR, processed in Snapseed on my tablet.

They're Back

Sometime in the wee hours
the migration broke over
Southern Maine like a wave...
not in a trickle but a flood,
as though somewhere south
a dam had broken.

Yesterday the yard belonged
to the winter shift...
chickadees and titmice,
the occasional Downy Woodpecker,
and the ever-present squirrels...

This morning there are Juncos by the hundreds,
Song Sparrows by the tens, a gaggle
of Grackles, a Cardinal or two,
and even my one-a-year Fox Sparrow
shuffling last year's maple leaves
where they pile under the Pines,
resting a moment with us
on its way north to breed.

I will admit to having my moments of doubt
in the last month or so, but it is looking
like we will all live to see
another spring in Maine.

Pic 4 Today : Loon

The other day, at high tide, just were the tidal flow of Back Creek passes under the road to the beach, there was a group of Common Eider and this one Common Loon feeding on crabs. I assume that the unusually strong flow of the flood tide had swept the crabs from their bed elsewhere, and the constriction of the passage under the narrow bridge was concentrating them just at that spot, since I rarely see either the Eiders or Loons feeding there on a normal tide. There was such an abundance of crabs that both Eiders and the Loon were coming up with a crab on every dive, and they had to be close to the surface since Eiders are not great divers. The loon, of course, is. In fact, in most of the world, what we call Loons are called "Divers". If I remember right, our Common Loon is the Great Northern Diver in Europe. Anyway, name asside, the Loon would be under water... more »

Pic 4 Today : Rainy Day at Winter's End

On Sunday, it rained all day, sometimes hard, sometimes just a spattering, but always wet. There were aerial and coastal flood warnings from the National Weather Service office in Grey. But, at least in part, because I had only that morning written about finding the wonder in every season and every day, I forced myself to pick up my cameras and head out to see what I could see. If I can't take my own good advice, well then it is not that good, is it? I took an umbrella, but the wind was blowing hard enough so that I knew I would mostly photograph what I could see from the car. I drove down to our local tidal marsh behind the dunes at the beach, and then down past the Rachel Carson NWR Headquarters to Laudholm Farm and the Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve, then back up the coast to sit at Mother's Beach in Kennebunk and shoot... more »

Pic 4 Today : The Bluebird of Happiness?

So, tell me, if you know, how did the the Bluebird become the bird of happiness? Have you ever seen a photo of a bluebird, at least our Eastern Bluebird, that looks anything other than grumpy? There is that famous mug shot (litterally, it is generally seen on a mug for sale in some gift shop) of the "Angry Bluebird", with its feathers ruffled and it's face set...but really, that is just the face the good God gave the bluebird. It is something in the shape of the bill and the placement of the eyes, of were the line of blue meets the line of brown. The bird just looks aggrieved. The Bluebird, in fact, could have been the prototype bird for Angry Birds! The Bluebird of agrivation! That is more like it.

Of course, maybe the ancients had some other bluebird in mind when they coined the phrase. Maybe it was already a cliché when... more »

Held Over

Winter has held on,
here in Southern Maine,
way past it's welcome.

We are marching fast
into the final week in March
and snow and ice still clog the marsh.

Returning birds, expecting buds and bugs,
find cold comfort in a February landscape
and flock to backyard feeders.

And the marsh, normally alive
with bird-song by now,
languishes silent despite
the promise of the spring sun.
