We had a visitor the other day.
At first I didn’t see him/her. Blended so well into the tree. But then, I saw the eyes. The bright yellow eyes staring back at me. It was a Great Horned Owl.
It sat there for a few minutes. Just long enough for me to grab my camera and take a few pics. Then it flew off. I hope it comes back to visit again.

Well, not actually right at me. The Bald Eagle looks as if it were coming at me on this take off but it flew above and to the right of me. I guess wearing the bunny ears worked. Just kidding.
I love the look on its face. Great stare. Not sure what I would have done if it came right at me.
This was taken in Lakewood Ranch, FL.
I used Canon 70D with Canon 100-400mm II L lens.
Recently, I was out in my garden taking some macro shots of some plants, when I had a visitor.
From out of the bushes came the green monster, the HULK. He was huge. Look how he towers over the mushrooms. And he was fast. I only got off this one image and then he was gone.
Before he jumped away, I heard him mumble, “Ragnarok”. I Googled this and I see this is where his friend, Thor, lives. He must be heading his way.
I look forward to the next encounter with the green beast in my backyard garden.
We, myself and my family, are so lucky to live just minutes from one of the best beaches in the US, Siesta Key Beach in Sarasota, FL.
I love taking sunset images. I like it even more when there are a few clouds to add the little extra to the image. Nothing tonight but still great to watch.
I spent the morning watching this family of bald eagles.
I watched as the male left to get food.
And I watched as the female sat above and in front of the next protecting the baby.
Can’t wait to get images of the baby flying. Stay tuned…
I found this proud bald eagle not far from my home in Sarasota, FL.
He is keeping a watchful eye out while his nest with a couple babies is close by.
I love the look and feeling of this image. Any thoughts?

Here’s a photo for NBC’s new spring TV show-
9 Turtles & a Gator. Airing Tues night after Dateline NBC, lol
I was so surprised that so many turtles were lying around the gator.
Like they were old friends. They laid out together almost everyday this week.
The title sounds like the movie- 3 Men & a Baby
I found this Osprey Hawk nest on top of a street lamp post.
Just as I was taking a few images, dad returns home with dinner.
Taken with Canon 70D + Canon 100-400mm II L lens.
The local Osprey hawk came by this morning with breakfast (a fish). He/she likes to sit on the edge of the roof outside our bedroom.
I wish it wasn’t so cloudy. This would’ve looked great against a blue sky showing off the feathers.
Image was taken with Canon 70D and Canon 100-400mm L II zoom.
Do you need a smile?
Checkout this happy bird. Almost looks as if he/she is smiling.
