Adapting to the Environment

January 21, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

This week I am sharing images from Arizona that I shot on slide film. The location for this photo is the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. This is a male Gila Woodpecker (I think). It's small red cap is just barely visible. For these birds, a cactus provides the same functions as trees elsewhere in the country: places to perch, nesting, and boring in them to find insects. Trees look definitely more hospitable, but I guess you have to use what is available. Using a long lens and a shallow depth of field result in the cactus at either side of the frame to be blurred, emphasizing and repeating the center cactus.
