The Garter Snake!

I was walking the path this afternoon not thinking about anything when this little garter snake jumped out in front of me.  Total surprise.  He slithered onto the rocks and posed for his picture.

Pileated Building Her Nest

 Way up high on a tree on the trail near Pawlings Farm there was a pair of Pileated Woodpeckers making a nest.  I just got one of them, but I marked the tree where they were and maybe, just maybe they will nest there and have a few little pumpkins.  Wouldn't that be fun!

My New Friend - the Frog

I was walking in the woods off of Ship Road down a long path and came to a little vernal pool.  And there floating on the pool was a new friend.

The Canada Goose - Today at Eastern College Pond

I have to tell you, the new Sony A1 with the 200 - 600mm lens is truly unbelievable.  I can hand-hold the camera all day and get just as much reach as the big 600.  And, it shoots 30 frames per second and catches focus on the eye of the bird!!  It's like cheating, but SO MUCH FUN.

Love is in the Air

It was close to 70 degrees today.  As I walked through the woods I came across these two mourning doves who could not have been more in love.  So wonderful to see.
