Spirit Bears of British Columbia

One of things that I found in my travels is the fact that you come across some interesting people.  Whether they are students, Workshop Leaders, or just people in the area, they can be entertaining and fun to be with.  Back in 2009 I was traveling with a few of my friends from across the […]

On the Lake

With the better weather arriving recently I have been spending some time Lake Side.  I always try to bring my gear along to see what might suit my fancy.  The lake is quite populated with water lilies right now but it is a challenge to get close enough for a nice composition.  The dragon flies […]

Lake Life

One of the reasons that you carry your camera with you at all times, is when that special moment happens you can capture it.  I was sitting at the lake last evening when I saw a young female deer walk out of the forested area to the west of our property.  We had to remain […]

Female American Redstart

I think That I have made my last trip out to the bay to capture this years migratory birds.  Th over growth of the vegetation is making it a real challenge to isolate any of these small warblers.  Yesterday was quite windy so the birds were lower in the branches.  I was able to capture […]

Elusive Avian Activity

Finishing up my week photographing the bird migration in Northwest Ohio, I found a cool and windy morning out by Lake Erie.  The boardwalk was still packed with people from Birders to Photographers and movement along the walk was a bit restricted.  What really caught my eye was the fact that as a result of […]

The Biggest Week

Pied Billed Grebe

The countdown continues for the Biggest Week in American Birding.  My friends from the southern states are posting some interesting images of the migratory birds as they work their way towards us and on into Canada.  12 days and counting!  Magee Marsh and the other birding areas in the Great Black Swamp are already starting […]

Black Swamp Activity

In my recent posts about the birds in Magee Marsh Wildlife preserve, you have seen many images from an area that is part of the Great Black Swamp here in Northwest Ohio. The Black Swamp Conservancy has worked on many projects to highlight this area and the environment surrounding it. The wetlands is part of […]

Blue Winged Teal

My trip to the Marsh last weekend allowed me some time to spend with several species of water fowl located along the drive back to the lake.  Mallards, Northern Shovelers, and Pied Billed Grebes were plentiful.  I was watching from the shelter of my SUV and was able to shoot from there which gave me […]

24 Days and Counting!

24 days and counting until the Biggest Week in American Birding kicks off in Northwest Ohio.  I took a chance last weekend and traveled to Magee Marsh along the coast of Lake Erie to see if any of the migratory birds had arrived.  I wasn’t alone on the Boardwalk but the birds were few and […]
