Simple Clicks – Tarpon sunrise

Setting out from the Bullhead Bay launch one morning about a month ago, I couldn’t help but stop and grab a shot of my Tarpon sitting along the shore.  There’s only a few weeks left of kayak weather and I haven’t gotten out enough lately.  As much as I love autumn, it’s the precursor to […]


Simple Clicks – the Harford Fair

It’s that time of year again, or rather, it for the past month it has been: fair season.  And as tradition dictates, we visited the Harford Fair, my favorite fair in the entire world.  Unfortunately heavy rain kept us from going on rodeo night, so we drove up the following afternoon, a Saturday, to revel […]


Simple Clicks – Praying Mantis

  Found this guy on the shrubs in front of my home this past weekend, foraging for a meal (or so I assume).  Mantids are a new sort of critter for me; I never found one in Vermont, but since moving to Pennsylvania I’ve encountered them several times, both large and small.  This one was […]


Neckin’

  Neckin’ – no, not the kind we so enjoyed as teenagers. This little guy is a Green Heron, and a few posts back I talked about how they have necks like coiled springs, which most of the time are kept tucked down and out of sight. This guy was hunting, then perched and did […]


Simple Clicks – Herons

On the same morning as my Colors of Fog post, but about an hour or so later, I was farther along the shoreline at Fords Pond when I encountered the little Green Heron.  He was in position for a perfect shot, but I wasn’t prepared, and he flew away before I was able to capture […]


Simple Clicks – Susquehanna Evening

  I spent time this past week out on the Susquehanna River, putting the Tarpon in at Falls and paddling upstream in my usual pattern, to the islands that finally block my progress about three miles up.  Instead of challenging the current, I crossed the river and paddled up into the mud islands, exploring the […]


Simple Clicks – foggy creek

South Branch of Tunkhannock Creek at sunrise this past week.  If you look closely, you’ll see that it’s there – those first signs of autumn.  The final waves of wildflowers, the slight turning of the grasses, the first tinge of color on the shoreline.  Summer is fleeting now.   Related Posts:Simple Clicks – Susquehanna EveningSimple […]


Simple Clicks – moonset

From the morning of 10 August, while I was on my way to Fords Pond for some sunrise kayaking.  I was passing Abington Area Community Park, almost to the pond, when I saw the moon over the far hill and knew I had to get a photo, and quick.  I pulled into the field across […]


Simple Clicks – on the hunt

  Okay, so maybe it’s a bit of a butt shot, but it was too visually interesting for me to toss it.  And in my defense, you can see this heron’s face, so that’s something.  But what mainly attracts me are two things:  first, the intensity of the pose.  This guy didn’t care that I […]


Simple Clicks – River Killdeer

  Nope, not some rare subset of the species, you won’t find a “River Killdeer” in any birding books.  This is just a Killdeer who happens to live on the Susquehanna.  Or was stopping over, or visiting grandma, or whatever it is Killdeer do besides eat, sleep, and the other thing.  This photo is from […]
