    Hunting Snail Kite, Lake Kissimmee, Florida, USA

    This photograph was taken from an airboat, on Lake Kissimee. It was a lot of fun watching Snail Kites eating Apple Snails, small Turtles, and engaging in courting activities. I think that just like the previous post, this shot works as a 1×2 crop as well.

    Wow, what a snowstorm! 32.4″ of snow was measured at Dulles Airport, eight miles from my home. I love it! I got quite a bit of photo processing done in the past few days.

    I’ve been working through my archives of unprocessed photos, and found a few that I’ll be sharing with you all. I took this photo of a Roseate Spoonbill in April of 2009 on a trip to Florida. I really enjoyed photographing these bright and vibrant birds up against dark mangrove backgrounds!

    Red Squirrel in Hemlock tree, Vienna, New York, USA

    Last week, I spent five days with my good friend and photographer Chris Kayler in upstate New York, at his Grandparents’ house. We didn’t do a whole lot other than photograph at bird feeders or head out to the ice-covered lake only to have our efforts thwarted by poor light, but I still totally enjoyed it. I have a bunch of shots of common feeder birds (No Evening Grosbeaks this year :-/) that I didn’t previously have, but my favorite subject was this cute and cooperative Red Squirrel Here’s one of my favorite images from the short trip.
