Total Solar Eclipse

Today was the Total Solar Eclipse where the moon blocks out  the sun to make a total solar eclipse.. The last solar eclipse was 30 years ago.   I am posting before the old man,  AL D  posts his pictures of the total solar eclipse.

This was my first time ever photographing a total solar eclipse. I was taking the pictures at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Before I planned the trip I had met with the old man,  Al D who is being made fun of tonight, because he is not posting about the solar eclipse yet but I am writing about it.

The goal of taking pictures of solar eclipse is you have to have special solar glasses and a special solar filter to capture the moments of the total solar eclipse. Just like I have done.. The goal of mine this year was to take pictures of the total solar eclipse and I have finally done it.

The conditions were perfect at the begin of the total solar eclipse and by the time it was supposed to be at brightest the sun hide behind the clouds and I couldn't get anymore pictures of it .

I had a fun time photographing the total solar eclipse.. The next total solar eclipse will happen in seven years from now.

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.

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.
