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.

Until next time…Rebecca

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

Ambassador Bridge 1957

This is a digitalized photo from a slide. The markers on the slide indicate the photo of the Ambassador Bridge over the Detroit River was taken on 7-26-1957.

From my understanding, the Revere site is in ruins and part of the property recently collapsed into the river.

Does anyone have any information on the site? Or the area? I would love to learn the history.

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

Vintage Photo: Detroit 1957

This image is a digitalized copy of an old slide. The original photographer left some data on the back.

Written in pencil:

  • Two freighters heading into Lake St. Clair
  • SK (I am not sure what these markings mean. I am assuming it was a way for the photographer to determine the batch of photos.)
  • Detroit
  • 7-27-1957

Of course, I would love more information on this photo. Are the children with the photographer? Were they just spending a day on the shore? Where was the freighters heading? Was this a normal day for the ships?

I am never satisfied. I want to know the whole story.

Tell me, what do you think?

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
