Walks With Wildlife
This week has been a glorious week, the snow is melting and the temperatures are comfortable. I have resumed my weekly walks with wildlife. Welcome spring and more wildlife and plant life to point my lens at.
Early spring there isn’t much color, everything is brown with a little green. Bored with the regular walking paths and nature areas I decided to take my neighbor up on his offer and walk their new property of 50 acres.
When you see a large patch of white in an area that has no snow, you have to investigate. Low and behold – it isn’t snow! It is Snow White though 🙂
We Have Some New Birds Arriving
Finally, spring is upon us! We have some new birds arriving and some lingering winter bird visitors still with us.
I don’t sit and stay long in one place. I am a wandering fool. I capture what is in front of me, or what I happen to run into on my explorations. There is something to be said for enjoying a cup of coffee while sitting at the edge of a pond or lake. Nothing rushed, nor expected. Just out enjoying the environment and sipping coffee. Perfection. Bliss.
Mama Pelican is Proud
Ever so often I get the chance to capture something extraordinary that is wildlife-related on camera. Let’s face it, Wisconsin doesn’t have items that are all that rare. But, that doesn’t stop me from enjoying them.
Northern Shoveler Ducks
Northern Shoveler ducks are unmistakable in the northern hemisphere visually due to its large spatulate bill.
Eastern Phoebe in Wisconsin
Normally, we start looking for Eastern Phoebe in Wisconsin around March 12th. The weather has been pretty warm for this early in the season.
Ducks Rocks Rebar Oh My
Say it quickly with me ducks, rocks, rebar oh my. This week has been interesting to say the least. It started off traversing rocky shoreline, while photographing the diving ducks along the bay. Ended with a black eye and broken camera screens.
Double Crested Cormorant
I heard this double crested cormorant was hanging around in Green Bay, Wisconsin this winter. There had been few sightings reported. I just never saw him, until today.
Locked on to Female Mallards in Flight
Today, is all about the female mallard. Spending some time locked on to female mallards in flight. Testing out some new settings. To see if I can capture excellent images with the Canon 6D. I have been having issues locking onto birds in flight. There is a delay between the camera and lens when capturing in flight images. Today, I’d like to gain knowledge on how to make a solid connection.
Sometimes You Just Have to Shoot Seagulls
Sometimes You Just Have to Shoot Seagulls. I bet I got your attention! Shoot, as in a photograph. The migratory bird act protects all bird species except those that have a specific hunting season. So, I’m talking about, …photograph 🙂
