This image was taken in Utah’s Manti-La Sal National Forest. You might recognize the scene from this photograph, or maybe not. Regardless, I’m thinking I might like this one more, now.

Québec

Snowy Owls, Québec, Canada

03.14.10 | Permalink | 3 Comments

My computer has been in the shop for quite some time, and will likely remain there for another week or two, so I haven’t been able to update this blog lately. I apologize!

Over the past month and a half, I made several trips to Southern Ontario, and Québec, primarily to photograph Snowy Owls. I’m very fortunate to have friends like Greg, Steve, and Matthew, to name a few, for without them, I would not have had anywhere near the success that I did.

Included in this post are two images of a juvenile female Snowy Owl that I photographed in Québec. I picked easy ones to process in Lightroom since I’m on a borrowed, uncalibrated laptop that doesn’t have Photoshop installed.

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

02.01.10 | Permalink | 4 Comments

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.

Harlequin Drake in flight, Barnegat Light State Park, Barnegat Inlet, New Jersey, USA

I took a last minute half-day trip yesterday out to Barnegat Light, New Jersey, to photograph sea ducks and shorebirds. It was a pretty productive shoot, with clear skies and not much wind to worry about. I successfully photographed Harlequin Duck, Brant, Surf Scoter, Purple Sandpiper, Ruddy Turnstone, Dunlin, and Long-tailed Duck, and on top of that I saw Black Scoter, Common Eider, Common Loon, and Greater Black-backed Gull, among others.

Red-tailed Hawk, Ontario, Canada

01.22.10 | Permalink | 1 Comment

The Red-tailed Hawk is North America’s most common and largest Hawk, yet I’ve found it to be the most skittish of them all, and have had great difficulty approaching and photographing them. When I heard there was an especially tame one in Southern Ontario, I made a point to made a weekend trip around it! These are the first three I’ve processed… I easily have a dozen other keepers, including some of a Barred Owl.
