Photographed with a Nikon AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-300mm lens on a Nikon D90. You could say Black-Crowned Night Heron‘s Back, too. We featured a different black-crowned night heron in a previous post. This time, we see the flip side on the same species. The two long white feathers comprise a plume that is held erect in […]
As is customary, the brown pelicans were literally at their posts at the boat ramp on Tarpon Bay, Sanibel Island, Florida. These two had a habit of doing the same thing at the same time, albeit in different directions at this moment on a fine April evening. They were on posts about 20 feet apart. […]
I got more mileage out of my Nikkor 70-300mm AF-S VR lens recently on a trip to Florida than I have had in a long time. This black-crowned night heron was hunting in 6-mile Cypress Slough, Fort Meyers, Florida. He put on an excellent show for several minutes. This particular shot is the first one […]
Abstract Christmas Star today. Technique was to move the zoom while the shutter was open on a long exposure. Nikon 70-300mm AF-S ED VR.

Twigs silhouetted by a full moon. Yup.
A raccoon warms his backside in the top of a broken tree. He’s about 40 feet off the ground here. This tree has been a home to raccoons for at least several years. This fall in particular they have made several appearances on their “front porch.” Image taken in mid November.
Witch hazel blooms close out the flowering season. Image taken in November. Nikkor 70-300mm AF-S ED VR. Another case where a telephoto comes in handy for wildflower photography.
These norway maples may be invasive, but they are pretty in the fall.
