Osprey In Flight

This is the same Osprey I photographed and featured on the blog a few months ago under the title “Osprey Hovering In Flight“.  It was much closer when I took this picture, revealing much more detail.  Please click the image to see a larger version of it.


Common Morpho, I

This Common Morpho was kind enough to sit still while I photographed it head-on.  It’s a large butterfly with brilliant blue on the upperside of its wings and brown with black and yellow eyespots on the undersides.


Red and Blue Damselflies

The damselflies on the Rappahannock River come in a wide variety of colors.  I thought this red one was particularly colorful.


Rusty Piling In The James River

This rusty piling seems out of place among the old wooden posts.


Among The White Giants

On a bright, warm winter day I found myself in the company of white giants reaching for the deep blue sky.  It was about 60 degrees fahrenheit but the naked sycamores and the hard light reminded me not to get used to the weather.

 

 


Anticipating Pelican

This Brown Pelican seems to know sometimes a little patience pays off.  It stood there for a while, quietly waiting to see if the fisherman had any handouts.  Unfortunately it never got that meal.  Two other fisherman arrived and the pelican decided it was time to move along.
