At 5:30 AM I tried tiptoeing past my wife so as to not wake her, but she was already conscious. “Well, maybe it will stop by the time I get there.” It did. Most of Bear Island WMA is closed for deer hunting on several dates this month. According to their website: Lottery Drawn GunContinue reading ““Are you going to Bear Island?” “Yes.” “It’s Raining.””
A nice long boardwalk through Four Hole Swamp. Always a good walk. Boy, was it quiet in there today.
I wanted to check back with Osprey Heaven to see if the 5 Ospreys were still hunting there. I hadn’t been in over a month, since the WMA it is on was closed for Bow hunting. I decided to stop at Duck Alley–a dike between two marshes–first, as ducks seem to get up earlier thanContinue reading “Bear Island, Again.”
Two things I never capture. Today must be my lucky day, because I got both. Time to play the Lottery! This was Magnolia at 0-dark:30, and not the greatest pic. But hey, deer! More flowers… Eagle doing what eagles do. This little lady is hard to catch. Glossy Ibis eating filamentous algae. Stacy will beContinue reading “Deer and Warblers.”
I was walking around in the rain the other day with my camera and telephoto lens, getting some strange looks. I was carrying a rain cover, but they can be kind of awkward to use.

More rain, we needed it.
Weatherman: 30% chance of rain this afternoon. Actual weather: 100% chance this morning. That’s all right though, I like the rain and this was more like a mist. Nice soft light. The camera picks up rain drops reflecting light, and makes it look like snow. There is ZERO chance I ever would have seen thisContinue reading “Rainy Days and Mondays…”
Snowy Egrets are the scamps of the marshes and swamps. I encountered a perfect example of this the other day. Mr. Snowy hired me to shoot a profile pic for his social media page, “Seeking Mrs. Snowy.” Low and behold, he got photo-bombed by a Tri-Colored Heron. Then, the Heron had the gall to commenceContinue reading “Snowy Attitude.”
Had a date with an Eagle, up early and here we go. A little foggy upon entry, but it burned off fast. This time of year, I guess we can look forward to more of that. I headed for the boat landing, but didn’t get too far before I could see that an Eagle wasContinue reading “Fabulous Friday.”
