Kingfisher, by the Side of the Road – Day 44

I’ve always been a sucker for a bird on a wire….

And when it comes to Kingfishers, I always seems to “catch” them on the fly when I am driving.

Fortunately, this Lady was engrossed in her fishing expedition, and so I was able to capture a few stolen moments…


More to come of this Lovely Lady!   ❤

My Wintertime Bank Street Loop – Day 43

This winter, as I waited for the hunting season to end in three months…

I was determined to find “new spaces” where I could keep photographing birds and all things nature…

To find the peace, the peace I stretch out for every day.

And, well, quite by surprise I fell in love with a Bank Street Beach “loop walk” – from Pilgrim Church parking lot, down along the shoreline, up Snow Inn Road to Wychmere harbor, and then back along the main road to the church.

One of my very favorite things about the new “loop” is the “back side”.


There’s a short boardwalk that leads thru’ the dunes,  that takes you to Snow Inn Road and then on to Wychmere.


And every time I do the walk I turn right there on the boardwalk, and I look back.

Just to see what the light is doing with the grass and the cedar trees at that moment.


Can you see why I fell in love??  ❤

A Red-breasted Merganzer Punk Star in Black and White… Almost – Day 34

The light was turning pretty crummy this morning, and I almost didn’t go out at all.

I am so glad now that I DID.

Or I would have missed this amazing punk star Red-breasted Merganzer.


Whose DOO more than made up for the crummy light. 😉


It was almost a moment in black and white…


Yet not.  ❤ ❤

Found Among the Mallards – Hooded Merganzers – Day 29

The other day I mentioned the Hooded Merganzers I’d recently met.

Among the Mallards they were, paddling about so quietly that I almost missed them.


A sweet pair…


And you could tell, he was the one guarding the area, as she dove continually for fish.

Even with the water glare, when I did catch a glimpse of her I thought she was one of the prettiest little ducks I’d ever seen.


I sure hope I see them again for a visit… if they’ll let me.

I must remember to ask her, who does her DOO?!  😉
