Winter Wildlife Part 2

 Hey, Hey its Al Bugg from winter Wildlife studios. Today is winter wildlife part 2. Yeah!

I got out a few days back at the end of 2019 and got different photographs of different spices of wildlife that are residents in my neighborhood pond.

The top photo is a Male hooded Merganser. They are uncommon around here but in the winter, they do fly in flocks, they like to be on open waters such as wooded ponds which I have here in this neighborhood, swamps, tidal creeks.

The second wildlife, I photographed was a Turkey Volture which are very common around here in the piedmont region of North Carolina. I have been trying many times to get pictures of them comedown and capturing prey, which I still have not one but maybe this year will be the year it finally happens and I might get some pictures of it, If I am around the area when this occurs.

These are Mallards which are also common around here in the piedmont region of North Carolina. I did photograph some last year when It was matting season and I still have proof of it that it occurred in my neighborhood pond.

This was taken on the fist day of January of 2020. The great blue heron still is here wandering around my neighborhood pond and catching many fish. The Great Blue Heron that day caught 2 fish and have proof of it for the beginning of 2020.

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.

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.
