I am a big fan of Skylum processing products, out of the Ukraine and still going strong. I just recently purchased a subscription to NEO, their latest software. This photograph was partially processed in NEO.


Duck in Flight

You would think of all birds, ducks in flight must be as easy to take as seagulls, but seagulls circle round and ducks fly in straight lines.


Screech Owl

Every year a screech owl nests at a new location in the reserve and usually attracts a crowd. This time I was surprised that there was no crowd, even though the nest was very accessible to viewers and photographers. I’m sure the bird is better off this way and after a few shots I left.

I’m sure Jimmy Buffet won’t mind my playing with the title of his song, but it is appropriate.

Forming up to head south, having done their bit to fertilize the north.

I usually manage not to disturb wildlife when taking their photo. In this case, the osprey minding a juvenile offspring, took a dislike to the presence of my wife and I. After the second dive bombing we got the message and hurried back to our car. Look at those talons!

It might have looked differently if I wasn’t looming over it.


Moulting Cardinal

It seems to have lost a bit of its dignity.


Mourning Dove

If you think it looks like a pigeon, city pigeons are rock doves.


Juvenile Osprey Waiting to be Fed

One of the two chicks seemed more inclined to fly than the other and ended being out of the nest when its parent arrived with food.


A Coy Look

Canada Geese form pairs for life and from my observation stick quite closely together.

Nothing beats reflected fall colours for duck photography.
