Good Birds plus interesting light

Hey its Al from Bugging in studios. I am writing about an outing I did at Jordan Lake for a sunrise shot with my mentor Al D.

Sunrise conditions that day were very interesting at Jordan Lake. We saw lots of wading birds that included Great Blue Herons, Great Egrets, Double Crested Comorrants. We also photographed osprey and the osprey attempting multiple times to catch a fish here.

Osprey are very common birds at Jordan Lake and they hunt fish just like the Great Blue Herons do .

This photograph of a silhouetted Double Crested Commorant taking flight during sunrise conditions at Jordan Lake.

Double Crested Commorants are very common around Jordan Lake and around central North Carolina, If you are lucky enough to phograpgh them in the wild.

This is an osprey that attempted to catch a fish at Jordan Lake while me and my mentor were there photographing.
I attempted multiple times to catch an osprey catching a fish here at Jordan Lake.

After many attempts I finally caught one with a fish. after failing multiple times trying to attempt this in the wild.

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.

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 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.
