May 30, 2018

As Spring speeds towards Summer, the Winter birds have gone away, except this eider.  He will soon join the migration away from here.

This goose was more curious about me, than I was about it.

Every year, red breasted mergansers swim their way through this part of Maine, while on the winter part of migration.

Today’s shot is of a bird called a bufflehead.  It’s a duck like bird that is not usually seen in this part of Maine.

First Look Photo: Lady and the Vine

I don’t usually see ladybugs this early in the Summer, but I saw this one on my way home from work.  I just love the red wings, and white head.

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.

Photo Friday: First Signs

March 10, 2017

Every year, towards the end of Winter, I look for certain signs that the warm up is on the way.  The first of these signs is the sound of the cardinal.  Most of the year, it is a short peep, but right before the warm up it changes to a beautiful song used to attract a mate.

Today’s picture is of a cardinal in the middle of its call.

Photo Friday: Comfort and Style

February 10, 2017

Today’s Picture is another school assignment.  I was to shoot a pair of shoes to show texture, and focus on the style of it.  Himalayan cats are considered a symbol of style, so that’s why he’s in there,  that, and I couldn’t get him out of the picture.

Photo Friday: No Egrets

September 9, 2016

If I were to have any regrets about my photography, it would be not having my camera at a great photo moment.  To be honest, those times have happened in the past.

Today’s shot was one I was definitely ready for.  I was on my way home, from work, when I saw a snowy egret hunting for fish.  I loved the way the ripples in the water’s current played around its feet.
