Welcome to my picture blog!

 

Welcome to my blog and a look at my life as a wildlife photographer. I write up blog posts on days I get to get out and take photos. Sadly, it is often limited to weekends and vacations so I don't get to write as many blogs as I would like. Although my postings are sporadic, I hope you'll still find the time to follow them! 

 

Thank you for your time and support!

Red-tailed hawk in flight

Hello everyone! I know it's been a few weeks since I've last posted and I'm so sorry for the delay. Life has been busy! But, I'm here now, so here it goes. Over the past few months I've spent almost every weekend at the grasslands hoping to photograph short-eared owls, but it wasn't the greatest season for them. We only had roughly 6-8 of them and...

Cormorant in a tree

We are experiencing extremely low temperatures this weekend and last nights temps dropped to roughly -5 degrees. Unfortunately, I forgot to get up and run both the hot and cold water every couple hours to avoid pipe freezing and my hot water pipe was frozen when I woke at 5:30 in the morning. Luckily it is only that pipe as I do at least still have...

Eagle on ice

It's February 2nd, AKA, Groundhog Day... and Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow this morning, which means we should expect another 6 weeks of winter. If this was a typical cold and snowy winter in the Hudson Valley region, I would have been annoyed with the stupid groundhog. However, we've had such a wild winter with higher than normal temps and NO s...

Rose-breasted grosbeak in the Adirondacks

February 01, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
Wow, I can't believe it is already February 1st. January went by so fast, like a blink of an eye. I'm guessing it went by so fast because I've been so focused on my over demanding and extremely busy new job. I look forward to the arrival of spring and camping season and hopefully the ability to take a little time off for R&R. Now that we are in th...

Blue Jay with a Peanut

Hello and Happy Monday to all. It's hard to believe how fast the weekend goes, partially because the weekend is always so busy. This past weekend I got out with my camera for a bit on Saturday, but then was busy with family stuff Saturday evening and most of the day Sunday. Due to how busy I was and how tired I was last night, I didn't get a chance...

Harbor Seal along the coast

January 27, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
It's Friday and I am not only happy the weekend is here, but I'm completely beat. For the past few months I've been working very long days, much longer than I would like. Part of the problem is that I'm working for someone on the west coast and I think he forgets there is a 3 hour time difference and so I wind up with some pretty late meetings seve...

It's Wednesday, Happy Hump Day to you all. I was so excited when I checked the weather this morning and saw they were predicting three inches of snow. As much as I don't necessarily like the cold, I absolutely love the snow. The gloomy winter always looks so much prettier when everything is covered in a blanket of glistening white snow. Plus, the w...

Stunning Male Cardinal

Well, if I thought yesterday was a long work day.... today was even longer.... I started it at 8am and my last meeting of the day didn't end until 7pm. I truly hope these hours are not the new norm because I don't think I can handle this for an extensive period of time. Here it is 9:30pm and I am just getting started on my blog, even though I am t...

American Mink

Monday's are brutal. Especially when you work 10 hours and 7 of them was in meetings. The nice part of it though was seeing the snow fall every time I looked up. It didn't accumulate to anything, but it sure did look pretty out there. In addition to working a long day, I am still recovering from all the activities of the weekend. I was so beat las...

Eastern Bluebird

My weekend was really nice, but it went by too quickly. My sister Tammy, her family, and their two dogs spent the weekend at my house so we could help my parents out with some stuff. We worked very hard helping my parents, we went to breakfast one morning, and we enjoyed pizza one night and taco's another. Our time with my parents Saturday and Sund...

Yay, it's Friday and my sister is here with her family and two dogs for the weekend. The cats are nervous and are both hiding under my bed. For the longest time they were curled up side by side, which is the closest they've hung out together yet. Great progress and hopefully soon they'll willingly snuggle together. My family and I are having fun, w...

Happy Flappy Canada Goose

January 19, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
I'm so bummed I missed a blog post yesterday, but it's been a tough week. I'm so glad tomorrow is Friday and this week will soon be behind me. I was scrolling through my photos and came across some shots I had taken of Canada Geese and I just knew I had to share one of those today. I took these shots in March '22. It was a bit of a cool day, but t...

Dromedary Camel at the Adirondack Animal Land

January 17, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
Oh my gosh, today was a long and exhausting day. I didn't sleep well last night and woke up not feeling well with an upset stomach, allergy issues, and my left arm in pain as it has been injured and hurting for weeks. It was one of the days where I would have liked to of stayed in bed and instead, I worked 11 hours with no lunch break. I'm surprise...

Osprey with a fish

Hey all, sorry I missed a post yesterday. I was so busy all day that by the time I sat down, I was too tired to pick a photo and write about it. Today however, was a much easier going kind of a day after a rough start. I spent 26 years as a dog mom and now I am a relatively new cat mom. Wow, what a difference. I had no idea it was going to be so d...

Evening Grosbeak in breeding plumage

Hello and Happy Saturday. I hope you all had a good day! Mine was good and busy. I got up late and then hustled to get my chores done before having a friend over for dinner. I made a crockpot full of turkey chili that was awesome. When Tim first arrived, Minnie was so excited to see him. She was right there at the door to greet him and as soon as...
