Just out and about

 Today I was just out and about on a photo shoot with remarkable Al D, When his medium format camera decided to shut down on him. Ha Ha!! So,  I get to make fun of him today instead of him making fun of me. Which is plus for me today I get to make fun of him!!!

Today at Mason Land Preserve I photographed Painted Turtles, a turkey vulture , a dead opossum in a puddle, lots of variety of song birds and many more things while we explored and adventured out in Mason Land.

This weather is really strange now that it feels like spring but its winter .. Thanks a lot Mother nature for this strange warm weather after all the winter weather we had last week.

I photographed this very cool stump with fungus growing inside of it along with the log behind it that is blurred out.

I found new things along the way to photograph here today which compared to before. I have learned more about nature photography which is what I do for a living as a nature and wildlife photographer.

Seen here in the photo I took a photo of moss on a tree branch which is very cool to do during the winter season.

I also learned more about how to do more reflections in photographs today. This is very cool to do when its a blue sky along with tree branches that have been reflected into the water which is very cool to photograph.

Believe it or not the Winter season for nature photographers is very slow but compared to the other seasons its usually more nature and wildlife to photograph along with pollinators and spiders and other things.

I hope everyone enjoys this week but otherwise someone that I know might have his camera not working again on a another photo shot on Friday I meant you Al D.

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.
