  • Great Blue Heron Fishing in Winter

    A solitary Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias) fishing in a salt marsh in winter. Initially I didn't see it standing in the tall grass. As I was heading out of the marsh, the Great Blue started croaking letting me know it was there. I went back and got a few shots.

  • The Slide

    Tiny Sanderling lost its footing and slid down the rock although it does look like the Sanderlings are taking turns sliding down the rock.

  • The Jump

    A seagull that was sitting higher up on the rock jumps over a seagull into the water below much to the dismay of the lower seagull.

  • Sanderling

  • Two Mute Swans In Flight (Wings Down)

    I was standing on top of a tall sand dune overlooking a nature preserve. I saw these two Mute Swans (Cygnus olor) off in the distance heading straight for me and the open ocean. Nothing like being in the right place at the right time.
