Day 122

It’s almost impossible to get good wildlife shots with a phone camera

July 26th, 2010

But this patient fellow just stayed perfectly still for me.


  1. Michael in Atlanta says:

    Great work, Matt!

  2. Donna in Texas says:

    Beqautiful work here. It looks almost real.

    • Craig ( NC!) says:

      heheheh either that or one of the sharpest birds in the business is about to over shoot his mark!
      Good one Matt

  3. Don in Tennessee says:

    There you go hawking the animal wildlfe shots.

    That is an amazing photo with a camera phone.

    Marlin Perkins on the MUTUAL OF OMAHA’S Wild Kingdom would be proud of you.!v=jnKazLqCMWk&feature=related

  4. Thomas says:

    You usually have to phone ahead so they can get ready. Glad you got a great shot.

  5. Candice In Alabama says:

    Looks like he might be going for you droid! Run Matt Run!!

  6. katzien in austin says:

    Ok, I was going to believe it was a real bird when I read Donna’s comment. Dang, I’m so gullible. ;-)

  7. Dennis in So Cal says:

    Awesome shot! One of the best yet. Congratulations on your patience paying off.

  8. Dan says:

    That is a gorgeous gate woodcarving!

  9. Chris says:

    Man, that’s an awesome shot! New desktop wallpaper!!!

    • Chris says:

      Man… you got me. I zoomed in and saw that it was fake. I should have first read all the posts! Very good one. Got me big time.

  10. Alice says:

  11. deanna valenti meyer says:

    I had to do a triple take on this one…yep…that is a gorgeous wood carving….looking so, so real. Great job Matt for pulling the wool over our eyes. :)

  12. Dionne says:

  13. Karen Too says:

    Very funny, Matt. Good one.

    I wonder how many people come to visit for the first time, and think that is a real bird. Nice carving.

  14. Jeff says:

    ha ha ha. A+ to the wood carver….B- to mr. matt. We want real wildlife.

  15. eSoup says:

    Perched on a lofty oak, Sir Raven held a lunch of cheese; Sir Fox, who smelt it in the breeze, thus to the holder spoke:

    ‘How do you do, Sir Raven? Your coat, sir, is a bright one, so black and glossy; with voice to match, you were a bird, sir, a Phoenix fit to be.’

    Sir Raven, overset with praise, must show his musical approval. And down falls the luncheon from the oak.

    — To Be Continued

  16. Jeff says:

    No soup for you!

  17. deb says:

    You had me fooled!

    • Jeff says:

      deb….Your a pretty awesome photographer yourself. Love the colors and themes.

    • Stephen says:

      Deb – Love your Town & Country Gallery on your site and home page ‘ruin’ image. I feel that your landscape photography has the same texture and visual vibe as Matt’s talented efforts. I think that Matt is an inspiration to all of us who take the time to creatively examine life through a lens or even a Droid! Keep up your excellent work and continued success with your exhibitions.
