Smooth entrance, a 10 for sure.
Some images from this summer.
These images are nothing to brag about, but I got closer today than I ever have before. Kathy warned me early that it was raining again. I considered staying home, but the weather in Coastal South Carolina changes rapidly, so I decided to chance it. Two miles down the road the rain stopped. I tookContinue reading “Harrier Pursuit Day 4.”
Destination: Bear Island WMA this morning, I wanted to monitor the duck migration. Most of Bear Island is closed for deer hunting, but there are a few dikes you can get on to–legally–that will put a person close to the action. Duck Alley was one of them.

After having some success with the Bald Eagles yesterday, I was anxious to get back to Magnolia for more. We say “There is always something to photograph at Magnolia.” But, where to go in the rain? It was coming down hard enough that I was carrying a rain jacket, an umbrella, and a rain coverContinue reading “Rain or Shine.”
