When Woody Comes to Tea

Being in a space with this vibrant giant is a blessing. Photographing him without any blur from his constantly foraging beak is priceless!

Seek and Ye Shall Find

Now that the weather is getting milder, I decided to look for birds to photograph in my backyard. There is a steep embankment that leads to a swamp. Apparently other things live down here….

Ben is my favorite agricultural escapee. He left someone’s farm years ago where he would have been between two buns. He was taken in by a wonderful woman with a huge heart.

Crouching Tiger, Peeking Swan

Swans are very easy to find here in NY.  I’ve taken a billion or so photos in every cliche pose that they are capable of.  But not this day.  This day there was a pair of tired and sleepy swans who didn’t seem to mind me and my camera for just a little bit.  This swan peering over at me to doublecheck that I am indeed, Not Scary.
