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!

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.

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.
