On the way to work this morning I left early enough to catch the sun rising over the north fork of the Black Creek in Middleburg, Florida. I pass this area a lot but its usually later and the light is flat so it was a nice treat to finally catch it this way.
At least for our smallest falcon, the American kestrel. The boys have a beautiful blue “jacket” that sets them apart which is quite striking. The girls are not far behind, and larger to boot. Guess its best not to mess with them in case they hear me.
I’ve been going through old photos when wildlife was my primary subject. I long since sold or traded the old Canon and Olympus gear, but seeing these shots makes me miss grabbing these shots!
Ancient bird from a time long ago? No, it’s a wood stork. You know, the one that delivers babies? They are actually beautiful and interesting birds, though in the right light a little creepy.
Or maybe not. I have not been able to identify this beautiful specimen, but was sure happy to come across it in the field. Any ideas?
Caught this magical scene just outside of Gainesville on the way to St. Augustine. A beautiful, cool, Fall morning is always nice to start off a day!
Welcome Autumn! Oh well, I guess being a little late for the first day of Fall and Halloween can be excused by the 87° heat wave we are going through. Regardless, I live this time of year!
Somewhere in Everglades National Park, a crab is not happy having his picture taken.
