Pine Warblers can be hard to spot as they like to stay high up in the trees.  This one was making its way through the lower branches when I saw it in Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary near Naples, Florida early this year.

Anhinga In Mangrove Tree

This Anhinga was beautifully perched in a sunny patch of a mangrove tree when I encountered it.  The Anhinga was picking leaves out of the tree and seemed to be playing with this one before it dropped it.

Red Eyes

This summer I was hiking in a coastal forest in North Carolina and noticed this dragonfly perched on a sun drenched leaf.  The shaded background helped to make the image a little more dramatic.

Weekly Photo Challege: Up

I watched these tundra swans paddle around in the water for a while and hoped they would take flight.  When they finally did I was able to capture a few photos.


King of the Mud Puddle

Walking in a park near the James River on spring afternoon, I stopped to see if there might be anything interesting in a large puddle adjacent to a small pond.  Sitting, quietly a few feet from the trail was this red toad.  It remained so motionless as I photographed it, I began to think it might be a toy frog somebody put there as a joke.
