Happy Leap Year



As you may know this year is a leap year which means instead of 365 days we have 366 days this year. The last leap year occurred in 2012. The next leap year will be 2020.

This February has been extremely different than others in the past. With the most common storm this month was the supercell thunderstorm that produced multiple tornadoes in the south in February this year.



This storm we had a few weeks ago in North Carolina produced an EF2 tornado that hit  the town of Oxford, North Carolina with winds up to 104 m.ph. This a very weird thing to have in North Carolina in February this year.

I have had  many photographic opportunities this month. This year is defiantly going by fast even though its February already.





So this year I have decided to have the top pictures of the month in honor of today.





  I decided to make this feather picture a February Abstract this Month and the water shinning below an abstract too this time.










The photo on  the right  is Canadian  geese taking off at sunset taken at my neighborhood pond. This one become a Silhouette as a passed the sunset.


I have an awesome February photographing different subjects and using composition with them .




Another photograph taken of the candian geese taken on my cousins 23rd birthday on February 26, 2016.


As you know tomorrow brings it March Already.











Yeah no more winter as the prediction was right with the Groundhog this year which is very finny this year because we have never had an early spring but this year its Early Spring instead of 6 more weeks of winter!


Heres some early sights of spring that ave already started blooming this year.


Looks like the Groundhog was right along this winter!


Another sight of early spring flowers daffodils have already begun blooming this early this year.









Some more early  sighting of Spring have already spotted by me at my neighborhood pond.


Have a Happy Leap Year Everyone!

Right Sunrise conditions at Jordan Lake plus good birds

Today I did a sunrise shot with my photography mentor who seemed to be chimping some open his photos today.




This is a Great Blue Heron I took during the sunrise at Jordan Lake Today. We spotted a pair of them doing territorial stand offs which was impressive to photograph today as well.

This was the when the territorials between the two Great Blue Herons were fighting between which territory belonged to them. I got many good shots of this.


This is also a pair of Black Voltures that seemed to be enjoying this beautiful morning grooming and just hanging around the side of Jordan Lake which I also got many shots of them doing their grooming styles for the day.


The other photos I got included a swallowtail butterfly, bees  and a new stump I got there today.
Here is a bee on the same flower that before the swallowtail was on.
Heres the swallowtail on flower that the bee was on.



And here's one of my stumps at Jordan Lake I photographed today and AL D is not allowed to pictures of this stump an…

Hatching of Prey Mantis!!

Hey Hey its AL back with an exciting news from my house today!  I have successfully, I have had 1 prey mantis egg sack today that hatched finally . I put 4 up in February 2020 and one hatched today which was amazing to watch and I got many pictures of them hatching from the egg sack today.


These are chins baby matins that recently had this morning and I got several different shots of them playing with each other after they were born out of the egg sack.
