Its that Summer Feeling Again

I am back again from extensive break from the blog for the spring.


Today, I went out to adventure to my neighborhood pond to see what I could find while I explored and photographed many different wildlife that resides in my neighborhood pond including 2 pairs of Geese and goslings which are at the adult stage now , Northern Water Snake and Green Snake which the last time I saw Green Snake was in 2015.






This is a Rough green snake. The latin name for the green snake is Opheodrys aestivus. The Rough Green Snake can be found in the southeastern part of the United States and it resides here, in North Carolina.

This is a Northern Water Snake which I also photographed and got some video clips of this water snake today as well at my neighborhood pond today.

The latin name for the Northern Water Snake is Nerodia Sipdeon. I was amazed at how many video clips and photographs I got of this Northern Water Snake today.





Finally, We have the Canadian Geese and Goslings, which I also got to photograph today as well. The latin name for the Canadian Geese is Branta Canadensis.

I have enjoyed photographing the Canadian Geese with their Goslings this spring and this summer while I am not currently working at O2 Elliott and besides who knows when I return to work at this point we shall see when I return to work when its safe to do so from the virus we are spiking in North Carolina which is COVID 19.

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.
