Hunting with the Great Blue Heron…again

A few weeks back I posted some photos of a Great Blue Heron that I was able to capture as he hunted in the shallows of Lackawanna Lake. It was an evening shoot and the heron was in the shade cast by the setting sun and I was forced to shoot at ISO 1600 and […]

Simple Clicks – Ducklings

Springtime, baby animals, yeah we’re still working on this theme.  Out on Lower Lake two weeks back, there were over thirty ducklings scrambling around the marsh after their mothers.  They’re such adorable little balls of fluff that I couldn’t resist making a few images.  So enjoy!

Simple Clicks – a simple mix

It’s a simple mix of common birds, but even when that’s all I’m able to find in the field, it doesn’t mean that I won’t still make photos of them.  Each has its own personality and character and far be it from me to scorn almost any critter that’s willing to post in front of […]

Killdeer Island, Part 2

Sometimes good luck just comes in waves. While I was semi-beached on Killdeer Island, busy ripping off shots of the Killdeer chicks, a flock of Least Sandpipers came in and landed on the mudflats right next to me. Since I’d already worked the chick opportunities pretty well, I pushed the bow across the mud to […]

Simple Clicks – pig pile!

You wouldn’t know it by looking at this photo, but it was a cold morning when I shot this and these guys were huddled into a gosling pig pile by the shore.  It wasn’t long until the sun warmed everything up, but until then these guys – and the 20 or so cousins they had […]

Killdeer Island, Part 1

Memorial Day dawned cold here in Northeastern PA. Cold, as in, fleece jacket and gloves cold, which nearly deterred me from even heading out. I sat at the top of my stairs trying to decide if I should go; it was cold, it was Memorial Day so it’d likely be crowded, the park I wanted […]

Simple Clicks – Cedar Waxwings

Waxwings in the spring!  I don’t usually see these guys until later in the year so it was a pleasant surprise to find them this spring in the trees along Lackawanna Lake.  Cedar Waxwings are always such communal birds – I never see them alone but always at least in pairs, if not much larger […]

Simple Clicks – Eastern Kingbird

The Eastern Kingbird is one of my marsh regulars, although I haven’t seen nearly as many of them here in PA as I have in my travels to West Rutland Marsh in Vermont. It probably has more to do with habitat and my access to it than anything else, since the Kingbird’s range easily covers […]

Hunting with the Great Blue Heron

The Great Blue Heron pictured here may be the same one I encountered earlier in the afternoon, standing on a mudbar in the lake. At that point he was just “hanging out,” at least as much as birds do, by which I mean he wasn’t actively hunting. Even in the kayak, he wasn’t too keen […]

Green Herons

The little Green Heron has been the equivalent of my photographic “spirit animal” for several years now, ever since I captured the image above. It my my first morning out with my Canon 300L, and a foggy morning at that. I didn’t even have the 1.4x teleconverter yet, but I still managed to get in […]
