Winter Wildlife Part 3 cont.

 Hey Hey its Al with Winter Wildlife 3 continued.
Its has been a fantastic start off to 2020 for me as wildlife photographer.

Today it was 70 degrees which is very uncommon for January wether here in Central North Carolina.

I adventured out to my neighborhood pond to see what was going on at my pond today and I spotted many water turtles that came out today because  of the hot weather we had today.  I also spotted my first Rough Black Snake which is the first picture. I got several good poses of the black snake and  got a good a head  shot of him for the blog and my personal usage .


I also spotted a pair of Northern Flickers today and got several good shots of both the Male and Female Flickers together.


So far it looks like this winter for photography for wildlife is off to amazing start. Stay tuned in for next weeks Winter Wildlife part5 . Until then enjoy this warm summer like weather for the next few days because next week its going to snow and I might get some pictures of the snow for the blog.

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 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.
