|On a periodic basis, I update this site with new pictures, and
as more and more images get added to the site, it can be hard to keep up
with what's new and what's not. To facilitate the occasional visitor,
I've developed this New Images page as a 'temporary residence' for recent
photos. As time goes by, I'll move the new images to their rightful
homes and load up a new batch .. hope you all enjoy looking at them as much
as I enjoy taking them .. !

It has been a wet/cold/windy winter. I haven't been out & about
since Thanksgiving – a long time since I went into the field. I've started
to see some ospreys back in the area, and there was an eagle nest that may
have 'occupants' so I grabbed my camera in late March and April to see if
anything would be flying around.
I found a nesting pair of ospreys hanging out in last year's
nest, and two eagles flying in the vicinity of their nest. I didn't see any
actual in-nest activity, so not sure if there is a baby in there or not?
I’ll have to keep watch. Heron's are always around, and some spring blooms
caught my eye as well. All the roses look flush with new growth, but it will
be a while before a full bloom. It was good to be outside and not freezing to
death .. !!!
A couple of Ospreys lit up by a setting sun.
They serenade us all summer with their whistles and calls
but will be gone in a couple of months so enjoy them while
you can ..
Cardinals – what beautiful birds! They have
been hanging around my deck picking up scraps left by all
the finches, so I finally built them a feeder of their own -
they love it. It seems “late in the year”, but I've got a
male cardinal apparently very attractive to two females who
seem to be in breeding plumage? I think the cardinals have
a nest in adjacent shrubs .. ? I've seen the male "mate
feeding' both females, who seem to be OK with taking turns.
Hummers - Lots of hummers around our deck
The hot weather seems to make my hummers hungry. I got a
picture of one taking a break from my feeders to sample some
of the "natural stuff" ..
As you probably know, they are very territorial and can be
aggressive – I somehow captured an “Attack” in a 3-shot
(images 2-4) sequence. By way of introduction, the little
green hummer is the "lady" who normally just takes her turn
at an empty feeder (image 1); the red-necked guy 'at the
bar' tends to hog the feeder (image 2) ... Well, apparently,
the little lady knows when enough is enough - check out the
image 3 - 4 sequence - duration between shots is about 0.1
The "attack" pic was shot at 1/1250 sec .. imagine
the speed of that lady coming in from above like a guided
missile to just be a blur .. !!
Very welcome summer visitors; they always seem to brighten
up our flower gardens
|A collage of azaleas taken early in the summer during the
peak bloom at Bay Creek. An amazing display! |
Day walk around the yard. Lots of different lilies in bloom,
as well as mums and our oak leaf hydrangeas. I've never seen
so many buds on our magnolias – everything sure looks
healthy. As long as I was wandering, a 'giant' hosta caught
my eye as well.|

a small town, Cape Charles puts on a remarkable display ..
