I Come From The Future...

Never can get a satisfactory shot of one of these guys. Probably my favorite bird, the Cedar Waxwing. I still think they look like they come from the future! I just wish they would come around more and maybe land a little lower on the tree for once..


Ghost Deer!

It was a dark & dreary day at Tom Sawyer Park. At times it was so dark I didn't think I had enough light for photos. I had not really seen anything all day that was particularly interesting, so I decided to walk out through a thick area of woods. Along the way I got bored, stopped walking, and started looking at my phone (which I NEVER do in the woods!). I don't think I was looking at it for more than 5 minutes when I heard that tell-tale blowing sound that deer make when they sense danger. I turned around and there she was, but only for a second. I wasn't in a hurry, so I just kneeled on the ground and waited. Eventually she walked back with another deer, but never as close as the first time when she snuck up on me. I had to stay low so I "walked" about 50 feet on my knees while peering above the random foliage. Each time I could see her cautiously looking my way, I would bring the camera up and then not find her in the viewfinder. Put the camera down and there she'd be. Camera up, she's gone, down, she reappears. "How can this be?" I wondered. Eventually her timing was off enough that I did get two shots. I was beginning to think that this was some sort of disappearing, Ghost Deer.

Another Flight With Two Hawks

I got another chance to fly with some hawks today. I initially saw one and wanted to get up in the air to greet it but, just at the top of my launch, I almost ran into a second one that I didn't know was there. I rolled to one side to avoid startling hawk number two and flew over to the original hawk and hawk number two followed along.

My camera is just a tiny mobius bolted to my hat but it captured some dramatic lens flare in this short clip.

Strike The Pose

I got to watch a parade of deer walk past my hiding spot today.

Chubby Little Cardinal Girl

The temperature was 15 degrees when I saw this chubby little female cardinal. She was in full warm-up mode.
