The nature photos shown here are available from my gallery at Fine Art America as prints and greeting cards.
My better half Karen accompanied me to the preserve this time. I had great luck with the bird photography but not much in the way of insects since it was cloudy. Here are a few shots:
This is my favorite shot, a beautiful snowy egret in the shallows of Tolomato River.
and here is a nice shot of a seagull skimming the water. Flying birds are very difficult to capture without blur. I used a shutter speed of 1/1600 sec to get this one.
I also like this closeup of the much maligned thistle. This is a white thistle flower.
Karen wanted to say hello to everyone. She is still bandaged from the dog attack I talked about in an earlier post, but the stitches are out now.
