Snowy Owl

I spent a lot of time walking on West Dennis beach last week. It isn’t my favorite beach, but it is very close. I was a bit surprised by the numbers of people walking despite the cool and damp weather, but that was fine – I can share ;)

I always start off at the far eastern point of the beach and turn back at different places depending on my mood. On Wednesday, despite my late start (I worked all day), I decided to walk down to the jetty by the river’s mouth. I had noticed a lot of people in one spot, many with cameras, just a little beyond where I’d turned back the day before and so I decided to investigate.

Yep, there was a snowy owl in the dunes. It was pretty dark by then, but I watched it for a few minutes before it flew off.

Fall Foliage and Felines – Photos

I hope you aren’t getting sick of my autumn photos… Anyway, I am going to repeat a few posted before, but add new ones. (Note – yes, in that photo at the top, that is how steep my back yard is – in places even steeper…)

All of these were taken in and around Wilton, New Hampshire in the last two weeks.

Photos from Cape Cod, August 30, 2020 (Mostly Osprey)

On the 30th of August I did a long paddle on my kayak. I went up Bass River from close to Rt. 28 to Follins Pond with a few small detours both coming and going. The best detour was into Dinahs Pond, which can be seen from the highway, Rt. 6. About half of the shots on this post were taken there. Including the osprey with the needlefish, the osprey hitting the water and the cormorants.

Yes, I saw a lot of osprey that day! I took about 300 photos of osprey on that one paddle! I’m not sure if these are the best, but I do like most of them.

Photos of Cape Cod May – July, 2020

Yesterday I took a couple of hours and zipped through the hundreds of photos I have taken in the last few months.  I didn’t look at every photo – I barely even glanced at the photos of flying osprey, of which there were hundreds, but grabbed one from this weekend: Continue reading

The Weekly Smile for 4/6/2020 #weeklysmile

weeklysmile2a

I like watching and photographing birds of prey.  My favorites are the osprey.  I see a lot of them on Cape Cod, but I never tire of them.  They are around for about six months of the year, so it has been a while since I have seen any.

Until Saturday.

I saw a couple while walking the dogs, so later I went out, camera in hand, to my favorite osprey “hunting” ground, sans dogs.  See them, I did.  At one time I saw perhaps 25!  It is possible a few seagulls were mixed in, but still… wow! I have never seen that many at once.

The day was awful for photography.  The herring have not begun to run yet, so I didn’t see any catch fish, or even dive at all, but it was still great to see them.  Here is a photo from Saturday: Continue reading

Photos of Maine Over Thanksgiving

Mt. Katahdin

I used to do a photo post at least once a month.  I have done very few this year… I was taking a lot of pictures, but they were “rotting” on my computer, not even a glance of regret.  And then I stopped taking them altogether.  Why bother?  So I took a lot of photos in Maine, mostly of my dogs ;)

There is a great view out of my in-laws window and I took quite a few photos from there, seeing all types of light. Continue reading

The Weekly Smile for the 2nd of December, 2019

weeklysmile2a

Hi all!  I took a bit of a blogging break and have been off line quite a bit over the last two weeks.  Last week I went up to northern Maine to have Thanksgiving with the in-laws.  There was a bit of crusty snow when I got there.  The dogs, however, loved it – this is early Wednesday morning: Continue reading

Too Many Photos, Too Little Time ;)

Osprey at Sunset

I take so many photos and rarely take the time to go through them.  I just downloaded about 250 more photos to my computer.  Sigh.  Some of them are nice, like the ones form the seal watch tour.  Oh well, perhaps I will have time to look at them later.  But here is a teaser – the photo at the top is of an osprey flying at sunset, the one below is a seal form pretty close up.

Photos from Late June and Early July, 2019

Immature red Tail Hawk flying over

I used to do a lot of photo posts, but haven’t put many up recently.  I have literally thousands of photos from 2018 and early 2019 that I have not even looked at let alone sorted and edited!  over the last week I broke down and looked at the last few.

I spent the last week of June on Cape Cod.  I worked half of the week and entertain guests, so I didn’t take a lot of photos that I can post, but there are a few, like this photo of my nephew fishing. Continue reading
