Orbs and an Ice Storm

I couldn’t stay inside one night last week after many hours of rain, sleet and an ice storm. The temperature had warmed enough that a rain/sleet mix fell when I went out.

I had to stay on the front porch because of the ice.

The trees limited my areas for photographing orbs.  All the tiny “sparks” were rain, and there are 3 orbs on the left. The orbs didn’t show until after the pictures were taken.

I went through the house to the side door. There’s no awning there. All I could do was stick my hand out under the corner of the screen where the cats use to go outside. I held my left hand over the camera to keep it dry.

 The side door gave me 2 angles for taking pictures.

 The orb near the orange outside light was moving, leaving a trail behind it. This shows it’s not rain, because it was going upward, not down. I have no explanation for the 3 tiny, side-by-side what looks like tiny moving orbs (to the right and up some from the moving orb). I found them in 2 of the 56 pictures I took.

The two large dim orbs might’ve been from a different kind of spirit, or  maybe emanated this way for a reason. Small orbs appeared in pairs in some of these pictures. They do this often, and I assume it’s to let me be sure they’re not rain drops catching the camera’s flash.IMG_1466 red

One thing about taking orb pictures is surprise of what’s in the picture after it’s taken. A picture can be full of orbs, and the next one of the same area taken immediately after usually has none or very few.

Notice how many paired orbs are in this picture.

By this time I was getting cold. I hadn’t exactly dressed right for all this fun.

My last pictures were of our security light, and the orbs that came to be in the pictures. I’ve learned how to take orb pictures during the day when it’s sunny and with thin clouds. These 2 green orbs are in so many of my daytime pictures.

I decided to go on to bed, and let the orbs do what they came here to do.


Orbs are said to be emanations (to come from a source) of Spirit Beings.

    Very nice!

    It is true, most of the pictures show the Orbs after, not in the moment. You had a lots of Orbs there.
    Very Nice


  3. Looks like you had a fun evening questing for orbs. Well done!


    • They were cooperative. I photographed 2 new kinds in the yard last night. Two were a white orb with the cloud still attached. I also had several large orbs that were faint. I’m about to head out again before the next snow arrives soon.


  4. There ARE a few other things I want to post at my place, but this is now the second time you’ve posted something that I’ve been wanting to do for a long time (the first was Ice), so I’ll go ahead and release some orbs in a new post today. Some from a couple of days ago, including green ones, and a convention of hundreds of them, and one found hovering under the roof of a picnic pavilion in August 2007. Long live the orbs.


    • I can’t wait to meet your orbs. I’ll email you and tell you how I photograph them during the day. I even got pictures of undines and sylphs on a recent hike. A blog is planned for them too.
