Today its the end of February.. What a February we had this year compared to the past Februarys. It has been near record highs for the past couple of weeks with summer like weather. I have been able to capture a lot of wildlife and birds this month for my birding collection for my photography database.
I have been on two outings with my mentor Al D to the Mason Land Preserve and the Western Eno River where we encountered our first Northern Water Snake this year. Man this weather is bringing out creatures and wildlife earlier this year than in the past years. I think our ground hog was right this year.
I took fog pictures earlier this month along with our Mallard Ducks and many different types of woodpeckers, geese, the blue heron, water turtles and other different types of backyard birds. I think this year has been a very productive year so far for photography for me so far.
This photograph of the Barred Owl was taken just recently at Mason Land Persevere with my mentor Al D. Its very rare to photograph owls in the daytime but this one was in the stage of it territorial calls which we heard and witnessed at Mason land Persevere. Me and my mentor Al D the walkabout blogger heard its calling and we wonder where it was calling from. Then all of sudden we saw the pair of Barred Owls flying to the trees. We had to overexpose some during the overcast day to keep . This was my first time photographing a Barred Owl during the day.
I have been not posting a lot during this winter slump as much as I did last year during the winter slump. But I have many more posts coming up this spring and some trips coming up soon. So I will post more on the blog soon.
