Is Fall Every going to show up this year?

 Hey Everyone it Al From the Fall studios just kidding (hahaha).

Does anyone think fall is coming or not this year to central North Carolina and are the fall colors coming as well?

So far it does not look like a great fall to photograph the fall colors so far but Central North Carolina has been in a drought for several weeks now.

Everything here in Central North Carolina including the fall foliage have started not producing yet. We have had so much darn heat that continued from this summer. We had hot temperatures From May 2019 to the beginning of October this year. This might be the reason the fall colors have not changed this year due to the heat and no rain for weeks in Central North Carolina.

I have been out a lot taking pictures of the fall this year and coming out with some cool photographs better than last years.

The water turtles in my neighborhood pond are still out which is very interesting this year compared to last year.

I have also photographed many different birds so far that have starting coming to this area of North Carolina. I will be posting more pictures this year on the blog and hopefully some more weekly themes will be on the blog for the seasons in 2020 which is next year.

Have a great weekend and a great week and I hope to post a lot more this week on my blog before the old man walkabout does on his 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.

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.
