First look Photo: New Lens, Last Chance

October 11, 2017

I was hoping to get a 300 mm lens before the egrets left for the season, and it looks like I got that chance.
This is a morning shot of a great egret hunting for food.

There’s no doubt great egrets are beautiful, but with a wingspan of 1.7 meters they look even more amazing.

First Look Photo: End of the Line

August 23, 2017

I love those photographs that show the natural world interacting with the human world. It amazes me how nature has adapted to changes humans have brought into their areas, like this bird sparrow on an end of railroad tracks.

This catbird decided to pose for my camera.  They are good singers as well; all night long.

I found this cardinal on my way home Saturday morning.  It was missing its head feathers, which gave it the appearance of a skeksis from the movie The Dark Crystal.

These birds are small, and members of the woodpecker family.  usually they don’t let me get so close, but this one was as curious about me, as I was about it.

Great egrets are one of the most beautiful marsh birds. Yesterday, I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph one using my 600 mm lens.

Photo Friday: A Little Snowy Egret

May 5, 2017

This is the time of the year when snowy egrets start migrating in this part of the country.  They are beautiful, and their bodies are about the size of a seagull.  Today’s shot is of the first one I’ve seen this year.

Photo Friday: What a Loon

April 7, 2017

Loons spend the Winter in the bays, and coast line, and move to lakes and rivers for nesting during the Spring.  I caught this one right before it moved out of Casco Bay for its fresh water home.
