Behind The Lens

Location

Early one morning while I was standing at my kitchen window with my camera in hand, I watched the wildlife awake and come to breakfast at our feeder. I enjoyed watching this little chipmunk sit on a rock and observe the birds and squirrels running around. Suddenly he turned and this was the expression I captured on camera.

Time

Just after sunrise.

Lighting

It was natural light on a clear day.

Equipment

I used a Cannon Powershot 50x, hand held.

Inspiration

I often take pictures of the wildlife in my backyard so it was not unusual for me to be watching with my camera in hand. I was lucky to catch this special moment in the chipmunk's morning routine.

Editing

Only auto contrasting and color edits.

In my camera bag

My Cannon Powershot 50x.

Feedback

Always be patient and ready to capture those unexpected moments!
