Elk season

September 23, 2022 I spent one evening and one morning photographing Elk in Benezette PA. The population of approximately 1200 animals is dispersed over 400 square miles so finding them in the right light, with a pleasing backdrop, and close enough is a hit or miss proposition. I missed more than I hit spending two […]

something a little different

September 18, 2022 It’s been a while since I’ve taken a walk in the woods just to take a walk in the woods. I went out for just that but at the last moment took along my Nikon Z50 with the kit lens only because it’s so small and light. I figured “just in case”. […]

Heron in the dark

September 15, 2022 The sun rises at 6:55 this time of year. If I leave the house at 5:45 I can get to this spot by 6:30. My kayak fits in the back of my van so it takes no time to slip it out and I can be on the water 15-20 minutes before […]

a new character

September 15, 2022 Pretty much the usual suspects hanging around for this morning’s kayak outing. The Osprey family has departed for the winter, most likely to Costa Rica. They’ll return to the same nesting area next spring to raise another brood. I did spot a juvenile Black-crowned Night Heron for the first time. These birds […]

to see what i could see

August 31, 2022 A couple of morning walks at the Los Angeles County Arboretum in Arcadia, CA.

the wonder of light

August 25, 2022 I was on the water well before sunrise this morning and had the opportunity to observe the way in which reflected light dramatically changes over the course of a sunrise.

quite the poser

August 18, 2022 Another morning out in the kayak brought me up close and personal to this Green Heron. These little birds stand only about 18″ tall but are very animated and so much fun to shoot. Once again I was amazed at how close I could get in the kayak and he still seemed […]

icing on the cake

August 15, 2022 Took part in an early morning paddle with family members which is always enjoyable. I brought my camera along just in case but nothing on the water. The company was more than enough that morning but just as we arrived back at the put in we spotted this Great Blue Heron on […]

A work in progress

August 8, 2022 Every summer I try to improve on the Ruby-throated Hummingbird photographs I get in the yard. Lately I’ve been concentrating more on perched images as opposed to in flights. Mostly because I’ve spoiled the birds and they only want to fly around the feeders instead of the flowers. So lately I’ve been […]

bold cormorant

July 29, 2022 Along with the usual Osprey and Great Blue Herons, a Cormorant kept hanging around this morning and seemed unfazed by my clicking.
