My family visited Rangeley, Maine this summer, in time for the July 4th holiday, (they actually celebrate on the 3rd). We stayed on the edge of the lake at a bucolic camp owned by my cousin Tony, Cole’s Kingdom by name. I have done some experimenting with a new camera I acquired: the Samsung Galaxy Camera.
These shots were taken with it. It has 21x zoom and a 16 megapixel camera. I added a 32GB micro SD card. We went to Maine last summer and I was enthralled with all the natural beauty. Because of all the rain this spring, there was an unbelievable amount of bug and natural insect activity.
Catching this bee in flight was something else. Notice how it enters the first frame of the picture and then dives right into that delicious nectar.
The moth is a Luna moth, indigenous to North America. Notice the shape. And we wonder where the US Air Force gets their design schematics. Ha!
The third and fourth shots are of a stick praying mantis. I took that with the Galaxy in West Hampton Beach, New York. I was in mid song playing guitar on our deck, when I spotted this lovely specimen lying in wait for a hapless visitor (aka meal). Alien indeed.
I will be vigilant for more unique images. In the meantime…. keep shooting!
