Orbs of a Guest


Therese Beavers is my guest orb photographer for this post. This is what she first wrote when she contacted me about her photograph on November 19th:

“I have been outside the past two evenings getting all sorts of orb pictures. I drove to an eagle’s nest and got an amazing result. With no lights anywhere (except my flash) I got 3 large orbs and a flash of light in the center of the tree. An eagle was sitting above the nest!”

Curious about the flash of light, I checked where the moon might have been when Therese took her picture. The new moon was on the 13th, which means it was a very dark night.

Therese continues with her description of that night: “The eagle nest is about 15-20 miles from me to the southeast. It is located in a tree in a field about 60′ from the road. Farmland surrounds it. I stood outside of my jeep in the road while I took the picture. I didn’t notice the eagle above the nest until I drove back past the nest going the opposite direction. I was so excited.”

Amazing that her flash could pick up anything at all at the distance she was standing from the tree.

Thank you to Therese Beavers for sharing her photo of the eagle’s nest tree with its orbs and that remarkable flash of light. Most interesting!

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.
