Mae fy ngŵr tynnu y llun y cnocell y coed hon. My husband took this picture of a woodpecker.
Ni’n caru’r holl adar yn ein iard gefn yn Florida.We love all the birds in our backyards in Florida.

I have always loved black and white nature photos. Especially trees without leaves. They look so dramatic against the sky.


#25

What a stunning capture! I love it! Mae’r lliw ar ben y cnocell yn fendigedig! :heart:

They’re so dramatic aren’t they, especially gnarled trees such as the hawthorne (draenen wen/draenen ddu), I tell the kids that they contain the souls of old witches. :wink: I feel I don’t do enough ffotograffiaeth du a gwyn, somehow. x

Some scenes from yesterday in the garden…

Dw i’n licio ffocysu (focus) ar un peth, yna gosod yr F stops yn isel, i gael y cefndir (background) efo effaith (effect) bokeh -

Mae eich lluniau chi ydy hardd! Dwi’n caru sut y pwnc yny blaen “pops” mas mwy oherwydd o’r “fuzzy” cefndir.
I am uncertain how correct this sentence is, but I am giving it a go anyway. Love the first picture.

Ni’n newydd brynu lens chwyddo ar gyfer ein camera a dal y llun hwn.
We just bought a zoom lens for our camera and captured this picture. I don’t know the word for Hummingbird in Welsh. This species of Hummingbird is the Ruby Throated Hummingbird.

Beautiful shot! Absolutely gorgeous!
(and the Welsh for hummingbird is aderyn bach y si :slight_smile: )

Oh that’s so beautiful @KellyMoore, thank you for sharing! Really lucky to have such magical birds to photograph. Congratulations on the new lens and have fun getting to know it!


#31

Caru hwn… :heart:


#32

Thank you for the translation. Does that mean literally, the little hum bird?


#33

Diolch! We love our birds in the backyard and try to take photos whenever we can. The zoom lens has helped greatly!


#34

Si can mean rumour, whizz, buzz, murmur, hiss, hum … so yes, little hum bird :slight_smile:

Pottering about with macro - small world / byd bach (bead bah-ch).

Though I didn’t use a macro lens for these photos, I think that the translation for ‘macro lens’ would be ‘lens craff’ (lens krahf) - craff meaning ‘keen eyed’.

Do you like macro photography? If so do you like photographing ‘mini beasts’? In Welsh, ‘mini beasts’ would be ‘trychfilod’ (truh-ch-vill-od) - the ‘truch’ bit sounds like ‘truck’ but with the Welsh ‘ch’ sound rather than the ‘ck’.
