He just did it with more panache than most.

Gone in a Few Sec


The snappings of Bee-eaters
Samburu National Reserve, Kenya, Africa
On safari from the photoblog www.kylefoto.com

Out in the rolling hills of Samburu the hum of crickets fill the air like a morning chorus punctuated by a sharp snapping sound. Scanning the scene before me some flits of bright green and blue make their way to a tree near me. No time to register what I’m shooting the bee eater stops and poses on the tree, looks in the perfect direction to allow a spark of sunlight to bring life to it’s eye then flits off to another tree. “Bee eater!” my local guide says “And do you hear that snapping sound? It’s the bee eaters knocking the stingers off the insects until all the venom is released”

A pretty remarkable experience to not only see these birds snatch bees right out of the air, but also hear them preparing their breakfast.

Photographic details: I had not choice but to just fire at the thing that was moving in front of me, no time for a change of settings, I just had to hope what I was using to photograph the Guineafowl previously was good enough to shoot the bee eater. The time it took to realize the birds were there, aim my camera and squeeze out a shot must have been 1 second, my next shot was a blur of yellow and green, I’ll upload that for a laugh on my blog at www.kylefoto.com it goes to show how quickly an opportunity can turn into an empty branch.

1/400s f/7.1 ISO320 400mm

P.S. Bonus points if you can tell me exactly which Bee-eater this is!

Roaring Ridge

Now, I didn't look up why they call this formation Roaring Ridge (and I hope I have that right, my mountain friend +Michael Russell!). What I do know is that I was a woman on a mission the day I took this. It was the first guaranteed sunny day in ages and I was going to shoot!

I was going to Snoqualmie Ridge and there are a few 'must have' shots for me. My daughter called and said she would be shooting the falls there and that would give me a chance to see my granddaughter. So the 'must haves' were taken so I could make it to the Falls on time.

In a normal season, I could be taking this shot from the lake level, but not this year. Maybe now, but not when this was taken. This is part of Keechelus Lake in front of you, trying desperately to freeze over!

Now, because I have lost the fine art of focusing, I must call it a night! Good Night All

Cavallino Rampante

Ferrari has always be associated with "Red" .

But in my opinion nobody does "yellow" like Ferrari.

Here is the classic Ferrari badge, Cavallino Rampante ("prancing horse") the black prancing stallion on a yellow shield, with S F (Scuderia Ferrari) and with three stripes, green white and red at the crest. (here on a 2012 458 Spider)

It stands alone as a symbol of speed, power, design and passion.

So many great ice formations in Antarctica. Decided to process this one as a B&W. Even though blue is such a prominent colour in Antarctica Ice I think that B&W processing really brings out the drama you feel when you are among these giants!

What is Plus Extract?

It's your DAILY dose of TOP Google Plus photographs, which were chosen by an algorithm that combines automatic steps and manual curation. This means that the DAILY TOPs are NOT based solely on popularity, and users with a small number of followers have a chance to be featured in the TOP. We use Google+ API for the automatic steps; Jarek Klimek is responsible for curation and communication with the authors.

We strongly respect the authors and their rights. +Jarek Klimek contacts every photographer featured in all DAILY TOPs and if any author decides that he/she doesn't want to be featured in the TOP, we respect this absolutely.

Catherine Hall About us and Google+

Google+ has flourished into a bustling online community for photographers – and one reason is the exceptional contribution of early adopters such as Jarek Klimek, Editor of PhotoExtract magazine.

Jarek had the foresight to research the new social network and created an authoritative list of photographers to follow on Google+.

His viral list has not only become one of the top referring resources of photography trailblazers, it is also shared and watched by leaders such as Guy Kawasaki, Robert Scoble and Darren Rowse.

Jarek has helped introduce the work of great photographers to Google+ photography enthusiasts and I was very excited to share his insights with viewers on TWiT Photo.
