The Roving Photographer


Spring Update

It’s been a couple of weeks now without any posts, for which I apologize.  I’ve been working on other projects that have taken up my time, and the opportunities for photography have been few.  The weather hasn’t been any help in that department, either. Also, I’ve been without my computer for the same period, as […]

The end is nigh!

The end of winter, that is.  And I present as evidence the little guy (or girl): the American Goldfinch.  Absent these past several months, the Goldfinches are returning north from their far southern wintering grounds.  They’re still dull-colored, their rich mating plumage still several weeks away at least.  Although in a few of the photos […]

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 […]

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 […]

A mix of shore-dwellers

Spring’s progression doesn’t only bring green back to the landscape in an amazing range of hues, but also brings waves of new avian species to the area. I’ve managed to capture a number of migrants already this year, some of them common and others much less so. And now some of the regulars are returning, […]

Simple Clicks – Ruby-crowned Kinglet

This little guy is a Ruby-crowned Kinglet, although the ruby-colored crown on the top of his head that gives him his name isn’t showing in these images.  He’s one of those lucky grabs that happened unexpectedly, while I was up at Fords Pond.  I wasn’t really there with any expectation of photographing wildlife, but I […]

A tale of two sandpipers

Sandpipers are fairly uncommon in Pennsylvania during any time of the year. Your might assume that these wading shorebirds are at home on oceanic beaches, which is a habitat that the Commonwealth lacks. Turns out that’s not quite the case, and some species actually prefer marsh, field, and even wooded environments. I’ve encountered more sandpipers […]

Simple Clicks – Flowering Dogwood

I was at Courthouse Square in downtown for 1st Friday, getting ready to cover “Pride & Prejudice’s” activities that night, when I came across this Flowering Dogwood tree in the square. I’ve always loved Flowering Dogwoods and think they may be the most lovely of all the flowering trees. Related Posts:Simple Clicks – moon & […]

Eagles in Spring

It’s an irony not lost on me that, after my eagling expeditions this past winter, where I drive over an hour to the New York boarder and then another 20 or so miles in to the reservoir and Plank Road, some of my best eagle photos of 2013 have come from the pond 20 minutes […]
