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 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 […]
