Elusive Orbs

This evening I stayed at home and simply went questing for orbs¬†within my yard. I couldn’t see any on my view screen while I was photographing, so I was a little discouraged. It wasn’t until I loaded them onto the computer that I saw there was actually a cloud of them coming at me like a snow storm.

This is the very next picture, not quite a cloud anymore, but then there isn’t as much sky either.

You can see why I thought the orbs were eluding me, try to find this one. Hint: it’s a tear drop shape.

I could see that I probably had an orb in the trees on the middle right, but could not discern the ones in the sky at the time of the photo.

These I couldn’t see at all until I was at the computer.

I’m rather fond of the tear drop orbs.

This is not the moon beneath the leaves.

The bright center light is the moon, which is still less than a quarter full. So, this post is actually for those of you hunting orbs in the dark. Don’t be discouraged if you can’t perceive them immediately. They may not be revealed until you brighten the image and lessen the contrast, then the paler ones can be seen.

For those of you who are new to this blog, or would like to refresh your memories as to what orbs are, perhaps this will help: https://orbsdelight.wordpress.com/2012/11/17/photographing-orbs/
