Total Solar Eclipse, August 21, 2017 Contest Winners

The August 21, 2017, Total Solar Eclipse was a sight to behold and our NatureGraphy group members captured natural views of its totality, for the world to see for generations to come.

Every capture was beautiful but like our contest title suggested (Total Solar Eclipse Photography Contest), we could only choose the best photos of a Total Solar Eclipse, not partial.

We would like to thank every member that participated. Everyone is a winner to us just for effort but we can only present the Top 5 best. Team NatureGraphy presents to you the best Total Solar Eclipse photos, submitted to the group on Facebook. Congratulations!

Barn Swallows by Nancy Elwood (Best Moment) – 06/02/17

NatureGraphy’s Best Moment of the Day goes to Nancy Elwood, for this special moment of an adult Barn Swallow feeding the chicks in mid-air.

Barn Swallows Feeding

Right angle and right shutter speed, and a bit of luck, all came together to make this image turn out. This adult barn swallow would fly by its chicks and feed them on the fly, VERY quickly!!! As soon as I saw an adult flying towards them I focused on the branch the chicks were perched on and pressed on my shutter. Taken at the Apopka Wildlife Drive, Florida with the Nikon D500 and Nikon 500 f/4E, FL, ED, VR lens, iso 3200, f/10, 1/1600, handheld. By Nancy Elwood

Angry Leopard by Ron Conigliaro (Spotlight Photo) – 06/02/17

NatureGraphy’s Spotlight Photo goes to Ron Conigliaro for this shocking photo of angry looking wild Leopard.

Angry Leopard

another in my series of, “how they look when they are angry at you” this leopard was giving me a warning to stay put (which i gladly did). immediately after this, the leopard came to the jeep and rubbed it’s body on the rear tire of the jeep. at one point, i could have reached down and touched it – my guides words, “keep cool” seemed a bit overstating the obvious. a thrilling moment… btw, this shot is sepia because you cannot light a predator and give away it’s position to prey. special lights are used with a green filter. because of the green cast on the shot, i decided to use this effect.
