A Herd of Deer

I was on my way home when I was fortunate to see this herd of deer. I think, there are 21 deer. I only took a few photos of them. I did not want to spook the deer while they were eating. We’ve been having very frigid temperatures the last few days. I am sure the deer were happy to find food.

National Save The Eagles Day

Did you know today, January 10th is National Save the Eagles Day? I could not imagine life without these majestic birds to photograph in the wild. I could photograph Eagles all day long. They are beautiful to watch even when they are munching on their latest carcass.

This beautiful Eagle was in my neighbor’s tree. I am so happy everyone in my neighborhood does not think anything of me standing in the road while I take pictures of animals around their property.

The Bald Eagle and the Golden Eagle are the only two found here in the USA. I applaud all conservation efforts to save the Eagles all around the world.

Until next time…peace

Majestic Eagle

I love to photograph Eagles. To me, the high-flying bird is a wonder to watch. This Eagle seemed to sit perfectly still watching over the Maple River. I am sure he could see every little creature moving as he looked for his next meal.

I know the photo is not the best. He or She (I cannot tell the difference) was actually faraway. The picture is cropped to enhance the image.

When I was a teenager, my best friend died of cancer. He always said, if reincarnation existed, he would come back as an Eagle. Needless to say, every time I spot an Eagle, I think of him.

Until next time…peace

Bridgeville Beauties: Egrets

Ok…I am not bird a expert. I am just guessing. But, when the Egrets and other water birds begin to gather, I know summer is coming to an end. Hard to believe right now, the temperatures are still in the 90-degree range with high humidity. Yet, from my photo adventures, I can tell you colder weather is just around the corner.

I snapped this photo over by the dikes, yes, that is a local term. I know there is a formal name for the protected wetland area. I just cannot remember. (I keep telling myself to photograph the sign, but I get distracted by the wildlife).

Doesn’t this little Egret look unhappy? I can just hear him/her saying, “I am trying to catch my dinner and she keeps snapping that camera. How distracting.”

Until next time..peace

Osprey

Ok, before I begin, I want to say this is not one of my finest photos. In fact, the photo was taken at a great distance. The image is also heavily cropped. But, I still like it. So I thought I would share. If you look closely, you can actually see the baby Osprey peeking over the nest.

I am hoping to get a better image. But for now, I am extremely happy with this one.

Until next time…peace
