Wood Duck Hen and Her Brood on "Jump Day"

Wood Duck Hen and Her Brood on "Jump Day" by Donna

Posted on 2019-05-22

"Jump day" is the day the ducklings leave the nest, which is usually 24 hours after hatching.

Wood Ducks often make their nests in holes in trees, many feet off the ground. On "jump day," the hen waits on the ground and calls the ducklings. They have to jump out of the nest and fall to the ground.

I didn't see these ducklings jump, but they are so tiny, this has to be their first day on the water.

Buzzed Bird

Buzzed Bird by Jerry

Posted on 2019-05-09

I'd been chasing Snowy owls for ~5 months. It is difficult to get a unique photo of these birds. She was resting on a log. I had been observing her for about 15 minutes when all of a sudden she jumped straight up into the air. It startled me but I snapped a quick photo and then turned around, rather irritated, to see who had walked up behind me and scared the bird, but no one was there? Finally, I saw that two black bumble bees had buzzed her. That scared her and caused her to hover in the air.

Possum by B. Thomas

Posted on 2019-03-27

Opossums are some of the most misunderstood animals in the Americas. They’re often thought of as dimwitted, dirty creatures whose most impressive trick is acting like roadkill. The truth is just the opposite: Opossums are smarter, cleaner, and more beneficial to humans than many of their woodland neighbors.

Here in Texas most people call them possums. This one visits our yard almost daily.

"A Left-Eyed View", Sabourin, "Grand Canyon"

What Were They Thinking??!! by Steven

Posted on 2019-02-12

An unbelievable sighting while we were at the Indian Watchtower at Desert View was this couple sitting on the very rim of the Grand Canyon, where it was a long drop into the canyon. All it took was a wind, a sneeze, a rock crumbling or an unsuspecting person coming up from behind and startling them to lead to an unfortunate accident. I stayed far away from them!

Rather than taking this photo for its beauty, I took the photo as documentation if the couple ended up missing...or worse.

Our souls dance by Susy

Posted on 2019-01-08

These dancers were photographed at a Greek Food Festival and brings the entire community together sharing the delicious Greek cuisine and the festive and beautiful folk dances of the Greek culture

This is an interpretation of cities getting ready for the New Year!!!! We find much happiness looking forward to a New Year. May this year bring internal striving for peace and community togetherness within our cities, our families and ourselves. May we recognize this striving in others, ourselves and contribute to bringing people together with our work, our laughter and our attention to the needs of others! Thank you, Susy

Posted on 2018-10-28

After I took this photo, I went by Ocean Beach where it was foggy. Went out of town for a bit, put gas in the tank. Came home, went up to Twin Peaks, and it was sunny, looked towards the Golden Gate Bridge, no fog. I even went through Golden Gate Park and again came home via Ocean Beach, no fog on the way back.

I'm not a bird photographer...

but I am an opportunist, so when a bird lands on a plant five feet away from me and then strikes a pose, I'll happily take its photo, even if the camera I have with me at the time is dedicated to infrared-only photography!

Street Art in Jersey City, NJ

A Modern Entrance to Hogwarts... by Susy

Posted on 2018-12-31

On my way to NYC I was walking down an alley to catch the train and I noticed this beautiful street art on the wall. Then I looked closer and found it odd that the Target shopping cart was pushed up and almost touching the artwork as if someone thought that would look cool. It did!!!! So, I quickly took a snap of it and when I came back after the day in NYC, it was still there. (Maybe it's a modern take on catching the Hogwarts train....:) Anyways, I thought to share here and hope you find i

Sunrise. Holbrook Reservoir. Massachusetts. by Shaun

Posted on 2018-10-29

Just a few months ago at the start of the summer, the reservoir was quite low and I could walk over parts of the area that should have been under water. After a few very heavy storms the reservoir was again full, easing water restrictions in the area.

I like to visit the fishing port of New Bedford, the largest fishing port in the U.S. The port is always busy and there are always a large number of trawlers landing their catches there. I have always admired the fishermen who go to sea to catch fish sometimes in very dangerous weather.

"A Left-Eyed View", Sabourin, Chicago Skyline

Chiberia's Skyline by Steven

Posted on 2019-02-13

The Chicago skyline seen from Montrose Harbor a few days after Chicago experienced a near record cold temp. Chicago was colder than many locales around the world known for its cold temps.

I didn't want to venture out with my camera for fear that it would lead to condensation building inside the camera itself.

The white amoebic form that you see in the middle of the photo are shards of ice that were paper thin and piled on top of each other, perhaps due to currents under the ice.
