onondaga lake

January 29, 2023 I took the 2 1/2 hour drive to Syracuse, NY and spent three days trying to track down some Bald eagles on Onondaga Lake. A large portion of the lake doesn’t freeze over in the winter which attracts northern eagles heading south searching for a spot to fish. All three mornings offered…

apex predator

January 15, 2023 Described by Wikipedia; ” An apex predator, also known as a top predator, is a predator at the top of the food chain, without natural predators of it’s own.” Photographed one morning in Hallo Bay, AK.

Urban coyotes

November 30, 2022 I discovered this pair of coyotes down the road from my daughter’s home in southern california. It seems they have claimed this fenced in corner portion of a very large piece of property belonging to a school that is nestled in some hills and can’t be seen from the road. I saw…

the animated green heron

October 13, 2022 These little birds are so much fun. They’ll remain stock still while waiting for prey but usually don’t stay put for very long.

amazing pupils

October 2, 2022 It’s estimated that an owl’s night vision is anywhere from 35-100 times better than ours. Not only that, but owls can see great in the day time too. Each pupil can dilate independently of the other and each has great control of how much light is let in, making them able to…

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…

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