Foggy Weather Plus Birds at Jordan Lake

Here we go at foggy Jordan Lake this morning when I was there for a sunrise shot with my mentor photographer Al D. I decided to some fog photography shots of the fog that was producing on Jordan Lake because I had never been at Jordan Lake with fog before until now. I was able to get the island with a fog around it in a photograph which will be shown now. This was really cool experience to photograph fog at Jordan Lake.  Here we go with the birds we saw at Jordan Lake today. This is a Belted Kingfisher I took while it was flying on the other side across from where I took the fog pictures at Jordan Lake.  This is  a Great Egert , which AL D is not allowed to photograph anymore sorry AL D.

Monday Color # 1

Happy Monday color for the first time on blog as a new yearly theme for this year. I decided to start off with some spring colors for this first color theme for the blog.

ThrowbackThursday 1

Hey hey its Throwback Thursday number # 1 on the blog for the year. Its Al from the Bugg about studios just kidding. For this throwback Thursday we are going back to spring 2020 when I was out of work from o2 Fitness when the the darn COVID 19 mess started and continued. But I was prepared for it. I took this osprey catching a big fish in my neighborhood this past spring in 2020. I watched and watched for the opportunity to catch this osprey catching a fish at my neighborhood pond which had been a goal of mine for several years but never accomplished until 2020. This goal was finally accomplished this spring dive to the fact the O2 Fitness was closed per mentally until recently which was just a week ago it opened back up but I am waiting for the numbers of COVID 19 to get lower before returning to work there. So you will see a a whole lot of new themes on my blog this year for the first time ever. SO BEAT THAT OLD Whippersnapper AL D!

I also did some landscape shots while I was there at Mason land as well to see what I could [produce for photographs in the afternoon.  The yellow flowers in this photograph at Mason Land are called Partridge Flowers and have yellow flowers .

This is a Carolina  Prey Mantis which is very different than the Chinese Mantis that hatched in my yard a few months back and hopefully to get pictures again of them in the adult stage laying eggs and getting videos of tha
