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.


BUT I will post a Picture of you from todays outing on my blog of you almost chipping!!










Here he is almost CHIMPPING, SO you got got back good for making fun of me on your blog last time! Lets see if I can catch AL D chomping one time !
















This a Black Volture that was processing its meal and trying to scare us away from it and a few moments later a bunch of more vultures joined this in in scaring us again and it did not work.







Heres all three of them protecting that meal from the other voltures and from us getting near them but they failed again to scare us.










Here is  another Great Egert,  me and my mentor Al D photographed at different location at Jordan Lake called Fearrington Boat Ramp.

This Great Egert was not scared of us at all and let us get some great facial expressions and poses of the Great Egert which was very cool to photograph.

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.

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.
