Foggy weather

Yesterday afternoon, I got the chance to chase some fog photos, which my crazy mentor Al D had to work instead of chasing the photo opportunities to get photos of the fog. 


When I got off work yesterday, I had noticed that there was dense fog advisory for our area and decided to take action and get out to take photographs of it.Yesterday afternoon the humidity was at 100% and it was very interesting to photograph the fog after and in between rain storms which I did. I think Al D needs to get his stuff together and do better at his fog photography and capture what I did.


I spotted of pair of mallard ducks yesterday and decided to photograph them with the fog. I have previously have done geese shots with the fog but this time it was a pair of mallard ducks .

The fog was very dense and I enjoyed walking and taking photos of it and of course I get to make fun of my mento today since he did not get any fog pictures.  Too Bad Al D!!  But I did.. So you get to be made fun of on my blog.

The weather so far has been very interesting so far for 2018.. Previously two snow storms in January . 

The groundhog,  in Raleigh did not see his shadow on ground hog day this year, so we get an earlier spring this year compared to his cousin up north where he saw his shadow and they have six more weeks of winter than here in the south.  This week its supposed to be near 70 degrees and above this week like summer weather for February.

Have a great rest of you're week and stayed tuned for more post and to you Al D, I am going to keep making fun of you on my blog.

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.








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.
