Back to Kenya

I had the greatest pleasure to go back to Kenya for 15 days in late September and early October.  It was an incredible experience once again.  Led by the great photographers Denise Ippolito and Paul Mckenzie, we all learned so much about light, patience and going with the flow.  For the first time I had the chance to stay in a hide in the ground all night with the wildlife coming right up to us and drinking from a watering hole.  Also had the chance to fly over the salt lakes of Kenya in a tiny helicopter without doors and photographed the gorgeous landscapes and thousands and thousands of flamingos.  Here are a few of the many scenes that crossed my lens.

New Book - Svalbard

Well, it's been a few months,  but I finally pushed the button on a new little book of our adventures in Svalbard from this past June.  It's not totally fabulous, but it is fun.  If you care to take a look, you can see it all for free right here.

You Talkin to me???

We had a downpour of a rainfall this morning and this little beauty was preening himself to try and dry off.  Gave me quite the stare.

We are back in Gloucester!!

 Tom and I made the seven hour drive to Massachusetts a few days ago.  We are in the same old wonderful creaky house where we stayed last year.  The seagulls and waves and sunrises are right outside our front door.

That's Jack on the Rocks

Feed me NOW!!

Two Assassins off of Ship Road

I was taking photographs of an Assassin Bug today in the woods off of ship road, when I heard a bunch of bluejays screaming in the tree above me.
The Assassin Bug

I steppped back to take a look at what the racket was all about and out flew a Cooper's hawk with a bird in his talons.  The hawk flew off to another tree and one of the bluejays came after him, but it was just too darn late.  I think the poor victim was a baby flicker.  (Click photos for better viewing.)
