Great blue heron

I adopted this Heron colony to help the Maine inland fisheries and wildlife . I go in a few times and count the young and how many nests ect. It is fun to do, and I get to photograph them and the young. This is a photo of an adult returning to the nest to feed the young, and the other parent then leaves to go hunting.


Motherly love

This old cow has had a lot of babies over the years, last year she had twins, this year she has this one adorable little baby that come out to say hi to mom.

Snowy Egret Walking Through Shallow Water

This Snowy Egret heads back to shore after fishing in the shallow Gulf Coast waters.  There’s some speculation those bright yellow feet may actually help the Snowy Egret catch fish off guard.

These birds were once prized for their beautiful plumage and the fashion industry hunted them to the to the brink of extinction in the late 19th century.  They’ve made a wonderful comeback and are fairly common now.


Diving Brown Pelican

Two Brown Pelicans patrolled the waters off the Gulf Coast of Florida.  One of them decided its next meal was waiting below.


Brown Pelican On Rocks

I saw this Brown Pelican standing on some rocks by the shore while I was visiting Bonita Springs, Florida.  The pelican practically posed as I approached with my camera.

Brown Pelicans are a little funny looking but when I’m at the beach I love watching them soar along in the wind.  They frequently glide along, just above the waves, in small groups and seem to have perfected the art of efficient flight.


Lake Yellowstone Killdeer

This killdeer was patrolling the shoreline of Lake Yellowstone, spending most of its time on the semi-submerged rocks just beyond the shore.





Fall is here, or close enough for me.  My favorite time of year, trout fishing, beautiful colors, campfires, stews, chili, and best of all amazing photo opportunities.
