Evening folks…spent the afternoon over at my otter location and was able to photograph this one gobbling down a catfish. It was amazing to watch, within 2 seconds of going underwater it came back up with this fish! There was also a beaver out on the ice for a bit, and a Belted Kingfisher…guess it likes ice fishing! It did manage to catch a fish in what little open water there is….
Evening folks…rainy day here on the pond, so I was going through photos on a hard drive and came across this photo. Some of you may have seen one taken from the same night as this one, Great Blue Heron nest silhouetted against the moon. This one is a slightly different pose from the one posted a few years back.
Evening folks…while sitting at my otter site, this Drake Hooded Merganser popped in to say hi! Needless to say the otters were a no show this afternoon….
Evening folks…last photograph for today, this is on Elmwood Road here in Lunenburg. I think it's one of the most old picturesque barns in Lunenburg. And then along with the sap buckets Hollis Hills Farm has lining the road, this little section of Lunenburg made for a great morning for photographing… To purchase a copy of this photograph click here.
Couldn't you just picture Jim of Hollis Hills Farm pulling up with his team of horses to gather the sap… Elmwood Road taken Sunday morning.
Afternoon folks….here is one from Massapoag this morning.
Evening folks…this is a critter I have been trying to photograph for sometime now, the River Otter. I located an area where there has been a lot of activity earlier this week. And this afternoon I finally was able to get a few photographs before it disappeared. I think I located the den as well and with any luck they will have their pups at this location!
Have a great weekend.
Evening folks…and keeping with the fox theme here is a Grey Fox kit taken a few years ago. I was only able to photograph them a few times before mom moved them to a new location. Cute little guys….
Evening folks…well it is getting that time of the year for foxes to start looking for denning locations. I may have found a Grey Fox location. This is in a location where one has denned for the pasted few years and last Thursday I found an area that has been new dug out…..fingers crossed. Now to find a Red Fox den...anyone know of one please feel free to contact me....
Spring must have sprung here in the Northeast, this bird shouldn't here now
What amazed me was how quick it happened...I was shooting with a Canon 7D at 9 frames per second and there is only one frame missing from this sequence of photos.
"Okay Where Are You?"
"There You Are!"
"Damn It's Cold Down Here!"
"Ahh Gotcha Yeah!"
Evening folks…today I went to Concord, Ma to photograph a Le Conte's Sparrow and wasn't disappointed! This has to be one of the most cooperative birds I have ever photographed. This bird is a bit out of it's range, tends to winter in the South Central US and breeds North Central and Central Canada. Great Day! More photos can be viewed here. Look under “Tweedy Birds”
Evening folks…on Sunday I went back up to Hanover, NH to try to locate the Great Grey Owl, again with no luck. The Snowy Owls are a no show this year. I'm not having much luck with owls this winter, so here is one from Duxbury Beach taken last winter. And no this guy had no luck catching it's dinner…
Evening folks…how about something to remind us spring is just around the corner… This was taken here on the pond over the summer.
Evening folks…I drove by The Old Mill Restaurant in Westminster, MA a few days ago a noted all the ducks and thought it would be a neat photo during a snow storm. There is something about snow, old buildings, toss in a few birds, a touch of black and white and makes for a great photograph…
Evening folks just took this a few minutes ago here on the pond…..But Is the old adage “Red sky at night, sailor’s delight. Red sky in morning, sailor’s warning” true, or is it just an old wives’ tale? A point to ponder during the storm predicted for the next few days….
Evening folks….Blizzard Warning….Winter Storm Warnings…16-30 inches of snow for tomorrow into Saturday! Come-on at one time Robins were a sign of spring, I just photographed this guy the other day.
Batten down the hatches folks sounds like this one going to be whopper of a storm! And this guy might think about heading South for a few more days.
Evening folks…here is another weasel this one is a long-tailed weasel I photographed this past summer while in Maine. I sat down on the edge of a small pond and heard a bit of squeaking, looked over to my right and spotted 1/2 dozen little weasels poking there head out from behind a tree. I tried to get some photos of the young but they moved too fast! Mom came running over had herded them away when she squeaking and saved them from the big bad photographer….
Evening folks…I went to Hanover, NH in search of a Great Gray Owl that had been spotted there for the past few days. We didn't have any luck with the owl…. But I did get a few clicks of this critter, I've been trying photograph one for sometime now.
Evening folks…while up to Salisbury beach last week I also went over to Plum Island to see if I might get lucky and stumble onto a Snowy Owl. No such luck on the owl, but I did photograph a flock of a few hundred Canada Geese feeding in a snow covered field! Yummy……frozen grass…
Evening folks…along with the White Winged Crossbills, Common Redpolls, Pine Siskin and Pine Grosbeaks, another member of the finch family has made it's way this far south as well, the Red Crossbill. Over the past few months you have seen photographs I have taken all the others except this one. On my trip to Salisbury Beach on Tuesday I was able to photograph this handsome guy..
Everyone have a great weekend!
