March 7, 2018

Here’s a shot I took for a challenge on depth of field.  It didn’t make it as the final image, but I still like the result, and the focus on the water drop.

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

Photo Friday: Leading Lines

January 19, 2018

This week, I had a convergence of photo assignments.  Both my school, and website challenge called for leading lines.  Here is my response.  I love how the sled contrasts with the rest of the scene.

July 26, 2017

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.

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.

The brilliant male cardinals have been going at the mating game, and all I hear when I walk outside is that familiar call of spring.

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.
