Two Ornaments On The Tree
Two ornaments can be found on this tree
One God created,
And one placed there by me.
The ornament hangs and is lovely I know,
But can not come close to this bird caught in Snow
A very Joyous Christmas to you all.
Poem created by me. Not my strong suit
Fresh Oranges Please, Not Frozen
Orioles are birds that generally fly south for the winter. This young male feasts on a California Cutie Mandarin Orange. He should be spending his time dining some place in Florida, Mexico or Central America. This guy is a true Snow bird and weathered the storm nicely yesterday. He loves his fresh oranges and does not like them frozen!!!!
Seldom Seen in Snow
Seldom seen in snow, this Baltimore Oriole should be wintering in Florida, Mexico or Central America. He is being treated like a king because he has decided to winter in my yard.
This Harris Hawk was featured for both his beauty and his flight skills with Flight of the Raptor, with Ray Penna. He was part of a teaching program put on at the Bristol Renaissance Faire.
Who Are You Staring At?
This Great Horned Owl ( Owlet) showed off some intensity after it had been chased out of a tree by a group of Crows. Although I chased off the crows, he did not put on his happy face for me.
This little Raptor is a rescue bird, who is used to teach and train people about Raptors. He and other birds of Prey were shown at the Bristol Renaissance Faire, by Ray, and his Organization Flight of the Raptor.
This Green Heron, landed several feet away from me, while I was photographing the Least Bittern. I had to go with the Green while he was there. Was he there to fish, or did he just want to have his moment of fame?
This Least Bittern enjoyed an evening of fishing, I enjoyed an evening of capturing his beauty. He took many fish, I took many photos.
This young Least Bittern, sneaks in over the water to fish. It uses its stealth, and speed to secure its meals. At six inches in size this pint sized bird is quite adept at providing for himself.
Gray tree frogs are very small and range in size from 1" to about 2" in size. They are normally found in the tree tops and generally only come down during the breeding season.
I am an avid amateur photographer, who is passionate about his hobby. More then anything else, I prefer to try to make captures of wildlife, and will spend many hours scouting out spots, and then many more watching the wildlife I find. A bit of a perfectionist, I tend to keep shooting a subject, until I feel I have no room to improve. People who know me well, know that I am never fully satisfied with my work and am always looking to do it better the next time. I love to teach, and help others. If you think I might be able to help you with something that deals with photography, please feel free to email me.
If you enjoy my work and wish to see more of it, I am on facebook and post many photos there. I also post many wildlife shots on Project Noah projectnoah.org. A link to my work is as follows:
