Rare Blue Moon end to January

Happy last day of January everyone!! Did anyone have a chance to see the rare Total Lunar eclipse and rare Blue Moon which is very rare.

I dragged my self out of bed this morning to see the rare historical event of a total lunar eclipse which was very cool to photograph this morning. I have never witness a total lunar eclipse or photographed one until 2018.  I bet my mentor, the old fart limpy did not get to photograph this total lunar eclipse and rare blue moon this morning.

This is a rare blue moon but the color in the moon is not acutely blue but its a darken red color.  I had to over expose some to keep the redish color in the moon to look like what I saw. 

This year so far has already had 2 super moons in January which is very rare to photograph.  The next total Lunar Eclipse will be in 2023 & 2024. So far we have had 2 snow storms already and its almost February and this Friday is Groundhog day. I hope this year the ground hog does not see his shadow and we can have an early spring!  Enjoy the last day of January !

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.

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.

I have been waiting many years for the successfully hatching and it finally happened today! I got some portrait shots of them as well when they emerged from the egg sack as well.

I am looking forward to documenting and photographing the Chinese Mantis in the different life cycles this year and hopefully I get some more hatching pictures this week.
