Lens Artists Photo Challenge # 207 – Seeing Double

In this challenge guest host Jez tells us that “seeing double is all about reflections.” The best opportunities for me to capture reflections occur when I am photographing landscapes and wildlife close to a body of water.

One of my favorite places to see reflections is in the Okefenokee Swamp in south Georgia. The header image and this next gallery were all taken while exploring the Okefenokee.

The next gallery shows some of my favorite bird reflections. The trio of Roseate Spoonbills was taken in Texas, the other three images were taken in Florida.

One of my favorite reflection images is this final image taken at Crescent Lake, Washington.

Lens-Artists #69: Seeing Double

This week, Tina has challenged us to focus on things that come in twos.

I enjoy taking animal and bird photographs. As I searched through my archives I came up with a few of my favorite animal and bird pairs.

Animal pairs are fun to capture. These two Irish sheep looked right at me as if posing for this photo.

A pair of Scottish Highland Cows, Hamish and Heather, came to the fence to beg for some free food.

These next photos are some of my favorite pairs of birds.  The photo at the top of the page is a pair of Bald Eagles we saw from a wildlife and glacier cruise in Valdez, Alaska.
