Close To Home

This year I have remained close to home. Even though I did not grow up here I appreciate all the natural beauty of the area. Lakes, Rivers, and woods all places where I feel at home…

    Jim, Which first? The series of pix of the Osprey catching the fish are just what you mentioned a while back you tried for; you got it today! Wow, is all I can say. What an achievement for you.
    The pic of the Cormorant (at least I think that’s it) for me is great as I have never seen one out of the water.
    The humming bird pix look almost like painted portraits. Exquisite.
    Lastly, I can’t imagine how you managed to get the 2 mating bugs, whatever they are.
    This post is spectacular in every way. MCS

      Mary S,
      In the early morning when the osprey dive they go through so many different levels of light it is really tough to get the exposure right throughout the flight path. Got lucky on that one and the light was pretty consistent, got lucky. It is a bit unusual for the cormorant to dry their wings on the rocks like that, usually they do it in a tree. Actually the bugs are not mating. A paper wasp had caught that grasshopper I guess. It carried it up on that leaf and surprisingly flew away with it. The captured grasshopper at least as large as the wasp. Thank You for the compliment.

  2. I don’t blame you, it’s a beautiful place.
    That shot of the tree frog is amazing!

      New Hampshire Gardener,
      It is a beautiful area. Thank You, The tree frogs so small, hard to spot most of the time. I wonder sometimes how many I walk past a day…
