Wayne Marinovich26,506Wildlife Photographers CircleWell, it has been over a year since I last shared my wildlife photographers circle. I have recently been through it, and dropped some folks who no longer seems to be posting. Whilst going though all the people, I realise just how many friends I have made in this online world. I look forward to meeting more of you in the flesh someday.Please feel free to share this with your followers (that is how this works after all). If you are not on here and are a keen amateur, semi-pro or seasoned pro, let me know and I will add you.  2014-05-23 08:07:52474938
Mario Rotta15,308This is a circle in which I included a lot of excellent photographers: but most of them start from pictures to create visual design effects. So, this circle may represent a list of people working on the edge between photography and art. I like that experimental edge :-)2014-05-22 06:00:41400016

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 March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting Feburary 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 +Gailen2014-03-11 10:45:331987410

Jim Warthman15,004Today I passed 15,000 followers! Thank you all very much for your kind appreciation and interest in my work! I am honored that 15,000 people enjoy my photography and have chosen to add me to their circles. I especially appreciate those of you who take the time to read my posts and comment on my work. I am truly humbled by this, and hope I can continue to share content that you’ll find interesting and worthy of being included in your circles.And special thanks to +Margaret Tompkins! I connected with Margaret soon after joining G+ and she has been mentoring me ever since. I credit my own G+ presence largely to Margaret’s wonderful influence!To commemorate this milestone, I’m sharing this Thank You Circle. Unfortunately, I can’t include all 15,000 of you in a circle - but I’ve selected those who’ve helped me on my G+ journey. This circle has some wonderful people who are highly engaging, interactive, thoughtful, and share outstanding content in their own streams.Last but not least, I’d love for you to introduce yourself in the comments below.Thank you all very much and, as always, Share and Enjoy! #Circleshare  #SharedCircles2013-06-18 14:34:0841343627
Charles Lupica66,743          Top 1000 most followed active        photographers sharing content on G+                  Circle One: J to ZThis  is the second of two circles,  The first was shaerd on 16 May here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/103236949470535942612/posts/FPsHj9E2QEo.  The circles have been divided alphabetically to help give more exposure to people with fewer followers and shared at different times to help keep down the stream saturation. Please plus, comment and share.  This circle has no requirements for future participation but your support and encouragement is appreciated. It has been two weeks since I announced my intent to update my circle of the 500 most followed photographers on G+.  I decided to do things a bit differently this time and so I'll share the top 1000.   To build the circles and the list I enlisted the aid of  +Bill Wood +Gemma Costa +Jen Baptist +Katy Houlne and +Margaret Tompkins   They built circles and vetted profiles.  My starting point for this was a list of 2000 names generously provided to me by +CircleCount. I would to thank each for their help.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the contents of what will be in the two circles. The script / finding namesThe script was provided by CircleCount and looks through the tagline of every profile on CircleCount to find the word "photo" or "foto".  If a photographer doesn't have a CircleCount profile they won't be found.  If one of these two words isn't in their tagline, they won't be found.  A few people I know have fallen into this flaw in my thinking.  To fix this, CircleCount has asked me to provide a "whitelist" of names that the script misses.  The white-list list adds another 30 or so names to the result.   Keyword world a personal viewpointIf you don't use the word photographer to describe yourself how do you expect people to find you in a search. "Searcher of cute pixels", "Creative spirit that makes art out of light"; these might be poetic, they might touch your soul but the world looks for content based on keyword searches.  SEO is going to do the same. Consider carefully the words sou use to describe yourself if you want people to find you using search technology. How was the list processedThe list was sorted by the level of activity.  People that hadn't posted in the last month (approximately April 5 to May 5th) were removed from the list.  This included people that hadn't posted or people that had posted only once in the past 4 weeks.  Again, this has some flaws but I'm mostly happy with the results.  People who are posting only in private communities o2013-05-18 13:17:2050114186132
Stephanie Calahan943FABULOUS WOMEN ON G+ Part 3 of 4My goal was to crowd-source a list of Fabulous Woman on G+ that are Actively posting and Engaging on Google+.  I had originally expected maybe 50 names.  Much to my surprise and , I received over 400+ comments filled with love and positive energy to help curate this list of well over 1384 beautiful people. I would say this was a success and now I'm sharing with everyone PUBLIC.  I hope you will share it far and wide too.  #Google+ will only allow me to share 500 at a time, so the list has been broken down in to 4 circles.  Groups 1-4 do not indicate any specific preference to any woman.  I would have shared one massive circle if I was allowed.Fabulous Women on G+ Part 1 Can be found here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/Srvv4xzeuYmFabulous Women on G+ Part 2 Can be found here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/DRFwReXQvbFWhat You Can Do Now------------------------------------* Add these circles to your own circles by pressing the "View shared circle" button below. Then you can either add it to an existing circle of yours or add it as a new circle by giving it a new name. I've labeled mine "Fabulous Women on G+".  (You won't be able to see the circle on mobile or ipad -- you must be on a desktop or laptop.)  See other G+ quirks below.* Once you've added it, I recommend visiting the stream for this circle and browsing through it to see what you find interesting, encouraging, and enlightening. Then, share some love by commenting, +1ing or sharing the posts of your sisters!* Please note, this is a very diverse group of women.  You're likely to see some people in these circles who will see, understand, or experience things differently than you.  They may or may not share your similar interests.  With that in mind, a few suggestions:     -- If you disagree with someone's views, you can very easily remove them from your circle.     -- Please post public vs to these circles directly.  Each of us has separate preferences on notifications and we want to lift one another up, not bog down notifications.  I hope you all see some increased activity, make some new and inspired connections, and lift one another up as we share each other's brilliance.#fabwomenonG+If You Received Notification About this Circle--------------------------------------------------------------------If you're getting a notification about this it's because you've been identified me or others in the circle as a Fabulous Woman on G+ that is Actively posting and Engaging here.  Original Post: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/HHzp7g9aW9tI thought you would want to know that you have been identified as someone the G+ community should connect with!  I don't send out notifications unless it is 100% warranted. G+ Quirky Things to Note----------------------------------------* Google+ has a daily limit of 500 for adding people to your circles. If you haven't added 50 people or more today, you should be fine to add one of the circles daily.* When creating circles, you can only add 500 people a day (new) and that includes moving people around in existing circles.HOWEVER there have been2013-05-17 16:21:40353371128

Sumit Sen57,209A Circle ShareCircle sharing by individuals seems to passé these days, and most shares are curated circles put together on some general basis by a few. That suits me fine because I am not fashionable and pretty faded! :)This circle is not one which contains all my best friends here or all the folks whose photography I really admire. It contains members who are my engagement set. People who follow my posts and people whose posts appear on my stream on a regular basis. Part of the selection has to do with Gplus's stream feed algorithm and part of it has to do with time zones. But these 200 are part of my life on GPlus now and I meet them virtually almost everyday.I am sharing this list mainly for the benefit of my new followers who are looking for worthwhile additions to their circles. I expect that they will not be disappointed by the selection. Finally, comments are closed. You can of course share and plus if you want to :)2013-03-23 15:19:4120001580

They also have "more photos, less spam." There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).Be sure to get all 14 circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to March 2nd for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 15th.)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.

Curating Content on Google+3,618Pʜᴏᴛᴏɢʀᴀᴘʜʏ ENGAGERS Cɪʀᴄʟᴇ  Nearly a full circle this week!Quick start instructions:➀ post a link to a G+ photo in the comments below,➁  check out some photos from others and +1 and comment on them,➂ share this post (public),➃ add this circle, and refresh it every week.You will be added (or stay in) the circle share next week!Full story: This circle is for engaging G+ users about photography.  The interaction happens mainly in the comments, but of course re-shares too.  Post a link to a photo from your stream during the last week in the comments below.  It can be your photo or someone else's.  Then from the comments here, check out someone's link, and comment on / critique that photo.  Try to pick someone new each week, so you will meet new people and make new friends (more than 1 is ok too)Results: your photos will get more exposure, you will be circled more, and you'll find active people to add to your stream.  Re-sharing this circle is highly recommended, and some form of engagement is mandatory.  That will result in a curated circle that's always fresh!  If you drop out for any reason, you can get back in at any time by adding content & engaging in the current weekly circle!This will be done once per week, starting fresh again.  It is for active G+'ers that want more interaction and exposure. This is a hybrid idea, taking the best parts of circle sharing, communities, and G+, and rolling them into one!Special thanks to the people who shared the circle in the last weeks: +viviane cristina moura leite +Trever McGhee +Malthus John +Jürgen Keil +Ludovic Moreeuw +PhillyBelle Turnipseed +Share Your Circle  #publiccirclesproject #photography #sharedcircles #weeklythemecircles #sharingiscaring #greatphotography #beautifulpictures #curatedcircle 2013-02-21 04:00:124781855176

Heading into the New Year - Wishing you all a Happy New Year filled with wonderful photo opportunities! Do you have any photographic goals? Personally, I want to concentrate more on the creative side like this Double Exposure, for instance. My primary cameras are now the Fuji X E-1 and newly acquired X E-2. Love them!!! I also use my Galaxy Smartphone for Doubles which is how this was created.  Happy Shooting all!

Sentinels of the Desert  - Dropping in to share some of my recent double exposures of Saguaro Cactus. (Click Image to see ALL) Most were captured with my Galaxy S4 smartphone using the Vignette app. Like film photography, you have to guess where to position your second shot. Such fun! I added textures to most and edited in Nik and Lightroom.

Desert Double Exposure - A promising colorful sunrise turns out to have no color. It was very dark so I decided to make the most of it and just play! This double exposure was captured with my newest mirrorless...the Fuji X-E2.  Edited on my Android Smartphone. Sorry for my absence these days but I find Instagram to be much more fun!

Jane Rau Trail - This brand new trail is located at Browns Ranch and was named after one of the first advocates of our McDowell Sonoran Preserve. Jane is now in her 90s and still riding her bike! The trail has spectacular scenery and thus is a photographer's dream. It's very short and hard packed making it accessible to wheelchairs so it is bound to become a favorite with everyone.

Tis' The Season! - I just donated a bunch of framed prints to the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy. (All images are from the McDowell Sonoran Preserve). Since 100% of the proceeds go to them, I hope those of you in the area will consider starting your holiday shopping there! Prints start at $15. (The small frames are my favorite:-) The office is in the office complex at the Promenade Shopping Center at Frank Lloyd Wright and Scottsdale. 480-998-7971  Please tell your friends! Thanks :-)

Just checking in with my G+ friends and also with #alienabductionfriday . Yes...I've been sucked into a black hole (of sorts) but I'm having a great time so can it be a bad thing?! In fact, I feel sure I'll be stronger from the experience. In the meantime, thought you might enjoy seeing what I've been up to. I just finished 6 blog posts with lots of images. I head to another location almost immediately so more to come. Thanks for looking and See you soon!

Vacation from Google Plus – I leave this week for some time in Flagstaff and I plan to do the same the next two months.  My goals while away will be enjoying the cooler temperatures and photographing wildflowers, butterflies, birds and fungi. I also hope to finish a few Blurb books. To make the most of my time, I will be taking a break from Google Plus until late September.  While away, I also plan to work on my time management skills so I can start enjoying G+ like I used to :-)

If you want to see photos from my adventures, check my blog (http://ezpixels.com/blog) and Instagram (http://instagram.com/ezpixels)

Rootbound? - Coming to you directly from my Alien Detector app on my smartphone is proof of a connection between Aliens and the plant world. Is this Alien Creature planting or harvesting?! Either way, keep your wits about you the next time you pass a dead tree. It might not be dead after all. Shiver…..

Monsoon Sunset - Most people equate "Monsoon" with rain storms but the literal translation is "seasonal wind blowing from the southwest in summer". Although these winds do bring rain sometimes, none has fallen yet. We do get wonderful clouds and colorful skies at sunrise and sunset, though! (You might like to know this was captured hand held with my tiny Canon Powershot N. )

Comments disabled but I REALLY appreciate your plus 1s!!!

Monsoon Sunrise - Sunrises during our summer Monsoon can be short but very sweet! If you're up early enough, you can catch it before the sun goes behind the clouds. Ordinarily, I would have been on my belly to get this composition but An articulating screen saved the day. On a more serious note....there are forces beyond our control moving in with those clouds!

Red Sky At Morning - You may have heard that some parts of Arizona will heat up to 120 degrees (48.8C) today. Crazy!!! I had a strong feeling regarding what might be causing it so I used my Alien Abduction App on my sunrise image this morning. My suspicions are correct. Pray for us…..

Sunrise/Moonset - Using the 1200mm reach of my Canon SX50 makes the moon look really Super! This was taken this morning (one day after the official Supermoon) on Browns Mountain in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve.

Three Cooper's Hawk Chicks - Captured with my trusty Canon SX50 at Boyce Thompson Arboretum this morning. The nest was high (HIGH) in a Eucalyptus Tree in the Australian Outback section of the gardens. Copper's Hawks nest in these trees every year but usually there are just one or two so it was a treat to see three healthy chicks!

During my quest of searching for Alien Activity where we least expect it, I have this warning….Check your Gardens!!! I am currently working to enlarge my butterfly garden by adding plants the different species of butterflies require and this plant was my latest addition. I did notice the strange buds and pods on it when I planted it but I was blown away by the resulting bloom the next morning! If you look really close, you’ll see there is a sentry at the opening of the flower.

My purpose for my butterfly garden is three-fold. *First*…I’ve long suspected butterflies as also being in kahoots with Aliens. *Second*…I’m more easily able to keep track of the already suspicious insects visiting this garden. *Lastly*…they’re just so darned pretty! The latter will no doubt be my downfall.

Butterfly Wonderland - Popping in to let anyone in the vicinity of Scottsdale/Phoenix (or who find themselves here several times a year) that Butterfly Wonderland is finally open and that their $99 Lifetime Membership special is available until June 15. With admission of $18.95 this is a real deal! http://www.butterflywonderland.com/admission-lifetime-membership.html

This image is a selfy. I held my little Canon N close to the butterfly and prayed it would focus. I got lucky on the second shot!

Acmon Blue – This extremely small butterfly was so far away, I had to zoom out to the maximum 1200mm of my Canon SX50 and yet despite a very busy background, the camera was still able to achieve focus. Impressive! OK…I will admit it took a few tries to get focus but considering I wouldn’t have this image at all even with my longest DSLR lens, it is a small trade-off. To give perspective, the leaf he is sitting on is just 3.8cm across. (Pineywoods Geranium - Geranium caespitosum)

Great Horned Owlet –This is the same Saguaro I visit every year. Last year, nothing. The year before, there were three. There are two Owlets this year but even after waiting over an hour, the other one still had his back turned.  Not a very good quality image but I could not believe my little Canon Powershot N could reach this far! This was digital zoom but it was the only camera I had with me so I’m very happy. I hope to go back later with an SLR and my Canon SX50 and get higher quality shots of both babies.  http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/great_horned_owl/id

(still can't figure out how to share a single image from an existing album. Very frustrating)

Bloody Net-winged Beetle - I’m on belly surveillance duty again this week and came across this 17mm long (slightly over ½ inch) creature. He’s a Smart little guy. Just look at him with his cute little “hello” wave but I’m not fooled for a minute! Sure…he seems very friendly but my Alien Detector App tells me different. Imagine a red sky made up of an army of these guys….

Brown-crested Flycatcher - This time I looked out of my kitchen window for birds and spotted a single Brown-crested Flycatcher. As I was shooting, a second one comes to the branch below! I had to use the full 1200mm reach of the Canon SX50 so the image isn’t very sharp but I’m so happy to have this photo of them :-)  (http://birds.audubon.org/birds/brown-crested-flycatcher)

Funnel-web Spider – I’ve long suspected spiders were in cahoots with aliens (especially this species) so I decided to venture deep into a web. I wasn’t afraid because I knew our Funnel-web spiders are not related to the poisonous ones around the world but even so, I didn’t get far before I decided to re-think my decision.  http://fireflyforest.net/firefly/2008/05/12/funnel-web-spider/

Reptile Survey at Granite Mountain - Last night was our monthly Herp Survey. This time we went to a newly acquired area for the Preserve...Granite Mountain. I hope this image gives some sense of how spectacular the scenery is! We hiked for 5 hours but didn't find very much. A fantastic night, though! Here's a link to some images: http://ezpixels.com/herp-04-2013/

All photos captured with Canon SX50 and my Adroid Smartphone!

Johnson's Jumper (Phidippus johnsoni)- I feel confident about the identity but please correct me if you think otherwise. The stripe apparently indicates it is a female. I found her on a hike in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve a few days ago. No macro lens with me but I’m a documenter and always want to show the surroundings so I got a wide angle macro with the Canon SX50  :-) http://bugguide.net/node/view/15152/bgimage

Canyon Towhee - While hiking with an avid bird photographer friend the other day, I wanted to show him the range of the Canon SX50. I focused on a bird we could barely see and zoomed in to the max of 1200mm. I then enlarged the image on the LCD screen so he could see the detail and I was excited to see a caterpillar in the bird’s mouth!!! Needless to say, he was impressed. Definitely the most fun camera ever  :-)  http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/canyon_towhee/id
