A Few Photos from Cape Cod

Since I need to go through all of the photos I took in Colorado and I know I’ll be taking 1000 more photos at the end of the month, so I decided to edit some photos I took the last weekend in July when I was down on Cape Cod.  This was a short trip to the cottage, so not tons of photos, but a couple of pretty good ones.  Or at least I like them ;)

Not a great photo, but I thought it was cool to see a bunch of seal off of Chapin Beach (in the full photo there are about a dozen others stretched out in a line). Continue reading

Cape Cod Late June 2017

Osprey

I was on Cape Cod for a week in late June of this year.  As usual, I took a ton of photos.  I finally got a chance to dig through them.  There were just too many ;)  The hard part was weeding them out and picking my favorites.  Not always the best.  For instance,  I like this Osprey with a stick:

Osprey with stick

Not as good as the photo at the top of the page, but I like the stick.  I actually took a few photos of osprey with sticks, and some with fish, but most didn’t come out very well. Continue reading

Photos from Ohio – Early June 2017 – Mostly Eagles

Immature eagle flying

I spent a few days in Ohio back in early June.  This is a yearly trip to visit family.  And that’s what most of it was about – visiting.  Of course, part of the visiting where the “eagle hunts” with my father.  We did two of them: one to McGee Marsh and the other, more local to my parents, to Old Woman’s creek.

Even though we saw a lot of the same types of things as usual, there were a few special things.  Some I didn’t notice until I was looking at the photos.

I took quite a few pictures of a great Blue Heron in Lake Erie out at McGee.  Later I discovered that a snapping turtle was right next to the bird.  I can see the  head in almost a dozen photos.  Here is one.  Can you see it? Continue reading

Photos of Cape Cod, Mid May

 

Swan grooming itselfI always post a lot of photos from Cape Cod, and have done a late April post every year.  I wasn’t 100% happy with my late April photos this year, but I am a bit happier with the ones I took in mid May.

Last Monday I put up a post of waterfalls and mentioned a new camera.  These shots are the first shots I took on Cape Cod with the new camera. Continue reading

Photos from Cape Cod, Late June 2016

People who read my blog, and particularly those who read the coffee posts, may remember that I spent a little over a week down on Cape Cod a few weeks back.  Those same people may realize that I visit there quite often, like usually a couple of times a month, and take a lot of pictures.  Well, I didn’t take quite as many pictures as usual and didn’t carry my camera ll of the time.  But I did take some pictures, some which I think are pretty good.

Maybe there’s a slight disappointment that I didn’t carry my camera around as much as I usually do, but I hope you won’t be disappointed in the pictures themselves – I think there a re a few pretty good shots in here.  But I’ll let you make up your own mind.  (All of these pictures where taken from the kayak either on Swan Pond in Dennis/Dennis Port or on the Swan River in Dennis or Dennis Port.)

As usual, click on a picture to see the full version with more detail.  Once the picture is up you can go through them like a slide show.

Enjoy!

A Few Birds I Saw in Ohio

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Geese

I don’t have time to write anything.  These photos were quickly cropped but I didn’t have time to do anything else to them.  Obviously I didn’t take time to decide which were my favorites ;)  Well, I started with over 700, so I did cut the numbers down a bit.  Click on the pictures to bring up more detail – you’ll be glad you did!

Photos from Ohio (Mostly Birds, Eagles)

Back in May I visited my parents.  Well, it was a little more than that since most of my immediate family was there.  Unlike normal people, I took few family pictures.  What I did instead was take pictures of wildlife.

When I was a kid there were few, if any, eagles in the area.  Now they are almost common.  Almost.  I’ve seen four or five at once.  Yes, half a dozen eagles at one time.  But that doesn’t mean every time I look up I see one, not by a long shot!  So part of the picture taking experience was finding eagles.  One was easy, since it was in a nest.  Unfortunately I didn’t get any good pictures of the young chicks this year.  Nor did I get any taking off or landing.
