Total Lunar Eclipse 2019

Happy totally lunar day yesterday or should I say the Super blood moon of 2019!

This was my very first time getting the whole total lunar eclipse which was very cool to photograph and see for the first time.

What is a total lunar eclipse? It is when the suns shadow blocks out the moon just like it did in these photographs I took last night for the Total lunar Elcipse.

I started out when it first started till it ended which was cool to photograph the whole Total Lunar Eclipse of 2019.

This photograph was taken at 10:38 pm yesterday night. 1 hour before the totality of the Total Lunar Eclipse of the Blood Super moon.

This photograph of the total Lunar Eclipse which by the way was half way blocked from the sun was taken at 10:58 pm.

This photograph was taken at 11:17 Pm.. The totality started at 11:41 pm yesterday.

Now here comes the photographs of the totally of the Total Lunar Eclipse from yesterday until this morning after midnight.

Totality of the Total Lunar Eclipse started at 11:41 PM!!

I had to use a lot of different shutter speed and high ISOs to get these photographs of the Total Lunar Eclipse last night until this morning.

NOW its a Blood Red Moon ! I took this photograph at 12:49 am this morning.  Wahoo Totality is still coming through till this point and it became dark red due to the particles of the suns rays hitting the moons surface.

Still blood red at this point at 12:55 AM. Wahoo I made it through to this point of the total Lunar Eclipse and hopefully when the next one happens in May 2021 I will photograph the Total Lunar eclipse again!

Hope you all got to see the Total Lunar Eclipse last night until early this morning and maybe even photographed it .

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.
