Winter Wildlife Part 1

Hey Hey its Al with a new seasonal them for Wednesdays  for winter called Winter Wildlife Wednesday.  I will be doing this theme throughout the winter months.

These pictures for this week are from an outing that I did with the Walkabout Al D and he has different posts about this trip and the winter captive pars 1 & 2 on his blog but I am doing something totally different on my blog this year for the winter months.


When me and my mentor adventured down to Jordan Lake for a sunset shot that day, We saw many Double Crested Comorants , which typically like this part of Jordan Lake.





We also managed to see tons of seagulls along with hearing a passing great blue heron, which we did not get a chance to photograph it because it was too far away from us to see it or get any photographs of it.


Hope everyone is enjoying 2020 so far, I am enjoying it a lot and hope to get more wildlife pictures during the winter this year and hopefully my prediction for snow this year is right for the first time and we get one big snow storm in 2020 from the past couple of years.

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.
