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!

Portrait of a blue jay

May 21, 2019  •  Leave a Comment
Today is my fourth day at camp and my first day that I haven't been working as I finished up around 8:30 last night. Now that the work is done, it is time to relax and have fun. This morning was really chilly and my poor dogs were so cold. I turned on the heat in the camper and snuggled with them for a bit. Eventually, I made it out of the camper...

Meet Woody

May 19, 2019  •  1 Comment
The best part of the month of May is that camping season begins. I spent Friday evening and Saturday morning loading up the car with everything I needed to open my camper. Because I had the kayak on the top, I took the long way which is roughly 3 hrs and 45 minutes to avoid the highway. The long way is only 45 minutes longer than my usual way, but...

Family of Geese

May 11, 2019  •  Leave a Comment
Over the past few months, the weekends have been filled with rain and even more rain, making it difficult for me to get out with my camera. Today, the sun finally decided to shine bright, giving me a great opportunity to get out. I started my day a little slowly as my belly wasn't feeling so well and I had a headache that kept coming and going. Si...

Great catch for both of us

April 29, 2019  •  Leave a Comment
After work today I was putzing around in my yard with my landscaping when I heard my bluejays yelling like crazy across the road from my home. I stopped what I was doing and went over to see what the fuss was about and as soon as I got around my car I saw a hawk on the ground with a bluejay in his talons. I quickly ran in and grabbed my camera in h...

Easter Eagles

April 21, 2019  •  1 Comment
My Easter Sunday began with a slow start as I got up earlier than I usually would on a weekend and was very slow moving. I first made coffee and relaxed with my boyz before hopping in the shower and getting out for the day. It was close to 9:00 when I finally ventured out of my home to head towards my favorite bald eagle nest. I arrived on locatio...

Rare Duck in NYC

March 27, 2019  •  Leave a Comment
For the past few months there has been a beautiful male Mandarin Duck hanging out in Central Park and today I finally had the opportunity to go down and photograph it. A few of us met at the train station at roughly 9:30 to catch the 9:50 train. We boarded it and headed out on time. Upon arrival to Grand Central Station, we stopped to get Metro Ca...

Officially Spring

March 24, 2019  •  1 Comment
Today's weather screamed... "YAY, it is officially spring"! The morning started off cool, in the 20's with a bright sunshine and beautiful blue sky. As the morning went on, it got warmer and warmer and by mid afternoon it hit 61 degrees. It was a perfect day to be out and about looking for wildlife to photograph. Bob and Jack joined me on today's...

Natural Camouflage

March 23, 2019  •  Leave a Comment
My day started a little later than normal as my dogs and I slept in since I new the morning weather would not be so great. We rolled out of bed at 8:30, then my young friend, Jack, was dropped off at my house around 10 so we could go out and look for wildlife to photograph. The first half of our day was spent driving around looking for owls and fo...

Not just a dog

March 16, 2019  •  Leave a Comment
I've been away on girls weekend since Friday and have been having a great time. This morning I got up early and headed to the Lakota Wolf Preserve in Columbia, NJ. The wether was a bit cooler than yesterday and so I forgot to grab my coat and gloves from the car. I couldn't go back to get them as I didn't realize I had forgotten them until after I...

My new pal Skunky Poo

March 11, 2019  •  1 Comment
For the past week many of my photography friends have been posting amazing shots of a skunk that has been coming out during the day. I've been so busy with work and other outings that up until today I had not gotten a chance to get there and wait for the skunk. I went to the park during my lunch break today and had no luck with the skunk. I saw an...

Peregrine Falcon giving the photographers her fist

March 09, 2019  •  Leave a Comment
What a gorgeous day today was! It was so nice to finally have a day off with blue sky, sunshine, temps in the mid 40's and subjects to photograph. I got up early and headed out to pick up friend Jack. Before we got on the road to head down to NJ, we made a brief stop to check on the local bald eagles we watch. There was no activity with the eagles...

Nesting Great Horned Owl

March 04, 2019  •  Leave a Comment
I woke this morning to a few inches of wet snow on the ground. I cleaned up the dog pen and the driveway, then sat at my desk to work for a bit. Eventually, I decided to head to the office and I made a couple of stops along the way. I was really hoping to find a red fox in the beautiful white snow, but I had no luck with that. Instead I stumbled ac...

Harbor Seals in the Bay

February 17, 2019  •  Leave a Comment
Today I began my day very early in Seaside Heights, NJ. It was my first time ever being on that island (I think, at least as an adult and from what I can remember) and it was pretty cool. It was off season, so getting around the island was very easy and many locations were closed. I could imagine that during the summer that place must be mad crowde...

Life Bird - Snow Goose

February 16, 2019  •  Leave a Comment
Today was a very busy and super exciting day! Let me first backtrack and say that 2 days ago I received a phone call and an email from Nicole at the Conowingo Dam Visitor Center asking me if I was going to attend the Unveiling of the 2018 Conowingo Dam Bald Eagle Photo Contest. At first I said I couldn't make it, but then Nicole told me I was a wi...

Bitter Cold Day at the Grasslands

February 09, 2019  •  Leave a Comment
Today is my beautiful Bailey's 13th birthday (my older chihuahua) so I stayed home for the first half of the day to spend it with him and my little Bandit who turned 12 just over a week ago. We slept in until 8:30 and just putzed around the house together. Around 12:00 I began getting my gear together and headed out to the Shawangunk Grasslands. I...
