Birds plus sunset at Jordan Lake

Happy October everyone. Hope everyone is doing well consider this COVID 19 mess could still go on for months from now. Now  its time for the outing from today at Jordan Lake with My mentor AL D who will possibly not believe I am posting before he does tonight and time is ticking AL D for your post. SO too Bad , I am posting ahead of you tonight on my blog.

 When we first arrived at Fearrington Boat ramp, we spotted a different types of birds including a juvenile bald eagle, a bald eagle, many vultures, comorants, ospreys, Great Egert and the Great Blue Heron.


This is an osprey that caught a fish today at Jordan Lake which i was able to get sharp focus on it .





 This is a Bald eagle I was able to catch when it caught a fish and was trying to kill it during its flight back to its nest to eat, which was very funny to photograph it.

 This was one of many ospreys we saw while at Fearington Boat Ramp that circled the area that we were shooting in.













This is a turkey vulture that I caught while it was flying high above me and there were many on the tree on the shore of Fearrington Boat Ramp as well.






This is a flock of Double Creasted Comorrants which flew right over jordan Lake .








This is a Great Egret which I took during its flight across Jordan Lake.














This is  my NEW Stump, which I took at Jordan Lake during sunset conditions, which was not producing much color at all tonight.

To bad AL D the timer is ticking down!

Right Sunrise conditions at Jordan Lake plus good birds

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.


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.

Hatching of Prey Mantis!!

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.


These are chins baby matins that recently had this morning and I got several different shots of them playing with each other after they were born out of the egg sack.
