Agave Orbs and a Cat

The dove perched in the middle of these two agaves caught my attention with its mournful coo coo this afternoon as I was walking home. Luckily, I had my cell phone camera to record the moment. This evening I decided to see if there would be any orbs around these agaves. Easier thought than done since it took several tries to find them in the dark new moon sky.

Blurrily my camera did find an orb among the agaves.

A few more orbs came to see what the flashing camera was looking at.

And then, my cat came to see what the fuss was all about and brought a host of orbs with him. You can tell he is a favorite in the neighborhood.

For those of you who are new to this blog, or would like to refresh your memory as to what orbs are, perhaps this will help:


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.

    • Thank you, Jacquie. Definitely got lucky with the cat and orbs photo. It seemed as if the cat turned around at the moment of flash to look at all the orbs surrounding his walk.
