Default more chattanooga stuff

Generally, this is the most wildlife i see in Chattanooga (besides the angry mocking bird that has been chasing me down the street every day) (the cat belongs to the little boys next door) :

I had an eight hour in-service with work, and during the breaks, i walked over to the chapel to take photos, instead of staying in the same room all day...

Right outside the chapel there is a Shakespeare garden. I think they should have "Thyme" instead of rosemary...

Nice, and interesting, series Vole. One of the great benefits of a forum like this is that we get to see parts of the world we are unlikely ever to get to see in person.

I like the first 'water shot' best ..... I like to see detail so the faster speed stops the droplets dead !

However I do take contention with your assertion that the 'cat belongs to the boys next door' .... I don't think cats ever 'belong' to anyone !

Like the series,

My fav is the first shot with the water and bridge, love the comp, sharpness all of it , the other two longer shuttertime are a tiny bit less

Vole, thank you for sharing.

My favs are the 2nd kitten picture (too cute) and the bird shot. I also find the sun dial shots very interesting.

Take care,
Glen

Nice work, Vole!
I can certainly understand your excitement over the Swifts, I'm the same way when I get something new or rare.
On the river shots, its a toss up between 1 & 3, depending what mood I'm in.
I also like the skipper shot a lot.
