Late summer variety, part 2

I started writing Thursday’s Late Summer Variety, part 1 and realized that I had more photos to share than I thought. More than could fit into a single post, at least, with any expectation that my readers would make it to the end. So I decided to break it into two parts, concluding with a […]


Late summer variety, part 1

A sampling of critters from a couple of different mornings lately, starting with my old friends, the Cedar Waxwings. These are some of my favorite birds, thanks to their perfect combination of good looks, personality, and general lack of fear of photographers. They’re also a late summer bird, at least here in NEPA, and their […]


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 […]


Colors of fog

Fords Pond a few weeks back, I was out on the water before sunrise and had the place to myself.  I’ve often said that sunrise is my favorite time of day, although truthfully it can be hard to get out of bed that early sometimes, and especially during mid-summer when it comes extra-early.  But on […]


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 […]


Spotted Sandpiper

Meet the Spotted Sandpiper, a more frequent citizen of inland Pennsylvania than you might imagine.  If you’re like me, then sandpipers are a kind of generic group of birds, pretty much anything you see at the beach with long legs that runs around in the tidal area.  Well, it turns out that it’s a little […]
