Another Nature Walk

Hi all! I've been going crazy the past week because my Nikon D5000 had a recall to fix a potential power problem so I have been without my baby! It's back now so I spent yesterday hiking 4 miles along a local nature trail. Here are three photos I took. As always, my photos are available as prints/greeting cards from my Fine Art America website.


This photo is of berries from the possum haw shrub, found near swamps. It adds a bit of color to the drab summer landscape.



and this one is another flying great egret. I never get tired of watching these beautiful creatures.



This last photo has a little story behind it. The poor male grackle spent 30 minutes fluffing his feathers out and loudly singing to a nearby female. She completely ignored his advances. Ah, the neverending story of love!

I just love the grackle one! They are all good, though. Poor guy.

These are beautiful! The egret is my favorite: great pose and good framing.
