Photo Friday: A Little Snowy Egret

May 5, 2017

This is the time of the year when snowy egrets start migrating in this part of the country.  They are beautiful, and their bodies are about the size of a seagull.  Today’s shot is of the first one I’ve seen this year.

The brilliant male cardinals have been going at the mating game, and all I hear when I walk outside is that familiar call of spring.

Photo Friday: First Signs

March 10, 2017

Every year, towards the end of Winter, I look for certain signs that the warm up is on the way.  The first of these signs is the sound of the cardinal.  Most of the year, it is a short peep, but right before the warm up it changes to a beautiful song used to attract a mate.

Today’s picture is of a cardinal in the middle of its call.

First Look Photo: Resting Hawk

February 1, 2017

Today’s photo is of a red tailed hawk I see every morning on the path home.  I figure it is just waking up when I get out of work, and it flew off right after I got this shot.

Here’s a shot I took this week.  This downy woodpecker was hard to keep still long enough, but this was the best shot he gave me.

Photo Friday: Welcome to my Church

April 1, 2016

Through the years, one question that pops up, occasionally, is “If you’re a Christian, why don’t you go to church?” My answer to that is pretty simple.  Every time I walk out my front door, into nature, I’m in my church.

No stained glass window, or cathederal, no matter how elaborate, can come close to the beauty of nature.  I don’t worship nature, but I do appreciate the creation of it, and that is what I want to share with my photography.

I hope you enjoy today’s sample.
