Once again it’s cruise ship season in Portland, and catching one coming in during sunrise is special.

I found this woman collecting bottles in Portland.  It Reminded me of  some of the street photography seen on Digital rev.

Photo Friday: Back Drops

September 8, 2017

Sometimes, humid mornings bring out more than spider webs, and foggy lenses.  This particular morning, the humidity had left some water drops on the back of two Japanese beetles, which brought out the color on their wings.

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

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.

Photo Friday: Eye Level to a Slug

August 18, 2017

Living in Maine, I’ve seen a lot of leopard slugs, but it’s always from a standing position.  One thing I never knew about them is they have a hole on their side called the pneumostome which is what land slugs and snails use to breath.  In order to see this breathing hole I had to get close to eye level.  That is where today’s picture is from; on my stomach, next to a slug.

I am always amazed by something so small, becoming something so large; just like how these small acorns with their potential to become a beautiful tree.

Photo Friday: On the Brink

August 4, 2017

Recently, I read a list of animals on the brink of extinction, and on this list was the beautiful monarch butterfly.  The reason they gave was a fake science started by a psychiatrist as a social experiment, and pushed by liberal, tree hugging, nut jobs like Al Gore.  Of course, I’m talking about “global warming”, but this is neither a political blog, nor a “fake news” blog, so let’s move on.

As soon as I saw them on the list, I began looking, and of course I found this female monarch.  She was resting in a tree long enough for me to get a couple of shots in.
