First Look Photo: The Odd Duck

March 22, 2017

I found this white duck among other ducks yesterday.  I thought it was just another type of duck, but the closer I looked at the markings, especially on the head, and after looking at my book, I realized it was a white female mallard duck.  It’s a rare sighting to be sure, but albinos happen in most species, and it’s still fun to see.

First Look Photo: Seeing Blue

September 14, 2016

Every year, around the beginning of Fall, the blue herons gather in different areas before heading south. This year, we were blessed with 4 herons congregating in Mill Cove.  They are the largest wading bird, and very beautiful, so I got a few shots, like today’s shot.

Photo Friday: Hitting Gold

July 29, 2016

I love dragonflies.  They are harmless to humans, and they eat mosquitos and black flies.  Dragonflies come in a variety of colors, and they make great photo subjects.

This week I was at Mill Creek park, shooting every dragonfly that would sit still long enough, when I saw something golden cross my path.  I went to where it landed, and saw a black dragonfly, with golden wings.  This was something I had never seen, so I started snapping.

After 10 good shots, I found one that was exceptionally clear, so I have chosen this as the photo of the week, and my favorite shot of the month.

Water on the Rocks

Maine is known for it’s lobster, blueberries, and having the longest rocky coastline in the US.  I took this picture to represent that.
