We have a few bird feeders in our back yard, and recently two Humming Birds have been visiting. I finally got out the camera to take a few photographs of them. As it was getting late the light was not the best, so I had to up the ISO to hand hold the camera. This is one of the better photographs I took of one of them at the feeder.
A week ago my family took a vacation to the Shenandoah NP region of Virginia. Spent much of the week hiking and driving along Skyline Drive. One of the hikes we took was to Lands Run Falls which is where I took this photograph. In addition on Friday morning while drinking my coffee on the deck of our rental, I saw this bear walking across the back lot. This was the second bear I saw, the first was crossing Skyline Drive, he was about 60 ft. away.
Another picture from our trip to Maine in 2017. While there we took a cruise with Bass Harbor Island Cruises and saw these Double-crested Cormorants along with other wildlife. This is one of many I took of this nesting area.
While out taking pictures in the woods behind our development, I heard two Barred Owls. I followed the sound and was able to see one fly away and the other head into a tree, although I did not know which one. While looking for the owl I saw it fly out out from a tree not more than 30 ft from me. I followed it to this tree, and I was able to get a few pictures of it. Other than the ghost image of a tree branch in the lower right this is one of the better pictures I was able to get. If you look close you can see its dinner (mouse I think) in its mouth. I only which I had taken a longer zoom lens with me.
