A Bang-Up Good Time!

Today’s post features some of this year’s July 04th fireworks that I captured over out lakeside home at the Lake of the Ozarks, in south-central Missouri. This is my second July 04th firework display I’ve captured at the lake. All these fireworks were personal fireworks by lake residents and visitors … and not too shabby! […]

Fun Friday: With a Luna …

Today’s post features an interesting critter that I don’t see very often, but always a joy to see one … the Luna Moth. Earlier this week, we saw this little guy as it was perched on a barberry bush next to our garage. This was spotted around noon time, with very harsh light. So, I […]

The Cleanup Crew

Today’s post features what I call “the dirty, cleanup bird” … the Black Vulture. Vultures are very interesting birds. They are one of our best “cleanup” birds, constantly scavenging road kill. To look at these birds, you would think they come out of the prehistoric era … the hairless, wrinkled faces were built for scavenging […]

Time for Chicks

Today’s post features a pair of Great Egrets at the Venice Rookery (Florida) this February. While photographing Great Blue Herons that were actively nesting, several pairs of Great Egrets were busy building their nests, bringing in sticks and branches. Looking over to one pair, they were engaged in mating: This was the only “active nest” […]

While photographing an active Great Blue Heron nest, I was shooting lots and lots of images, hoping to capture “that special moment”. Well, as it was early in the morning, the roosting White Ibises (“Ibi”?) were beginning to leave the […]
