Haiku Orbs


Orb caught on branches

Illuminating unknown

Child of moon or sun?

About orbphotog

Born in the West, I studied photography and painting at the School of Visual Arts in New York City before being drawn back home to the open skies of western living. My camera is always close at hand to capture changing light and to record what catches my eye. However, it is my recent discovery of being able to see orbs through the medium of digital photography that has sparked my passion for photographing the night. All photographs in this blog are copyrighted by me. Occasional photos by guests are copyrighted by the photographer. Please contact if you would like to order prints.

    • I have no idea why some are round and some are shaped like tear drops. In one of my postings it looks like the same tear drop orb has followed me in three photos in a span of about ten minutes ascending from downtown to a hill above the town. I think that was in the Bisbee Orbs after 5 post. If you look at it closely it has the same interior features.


    • Some of the tear drop orbs give me the impression of being very young and some seem older. What does come to mind when studying them closely is that they appear to be distinct individuals who do not melt away but can be encountered over time.


      • Honestly Orbs are the big question for me, I have read, researched, looked in to too many blogs, I think, trying to get some answers, but sometimes when I listen to my daughter talking about that this is just light effects, I feel like she is right and I am wrong. Other times I feel that there is a connection between me and them. And then I ask my self how can you explain ” I can take 50 pictures in my house-NO ORBS- then I start talking to them and there they are, take the pictures and you can see them.”


  1. Perhaps you should try out Dr. Heinemann’s theory that “orbs are emanations of spiritual beings” and see if accepting the mystery and wonder of that perspective speaks more to your experience than a sceptic’s dismissal.
