Different views, and perspective, of the same location. This is the outdoor tabernacle of the Cypress Methodist Camp.

Bald Eagle Keeping Watch

I’m not sure how this happens. I have not seen any Eagles for a month or so. I’m not really looking for them, but we have wildlife everywhere, and that includes Eagles.

The last few days they must have come looking for me.

This bird was sitting high over the Ashley River up stream from Charleston SC. In a spot we call ‘the Eagle tree’. No surprise who uses it.

The Eagle above is actually the second bird in that tree. This is a pair that have nested around here for years.

Great Blue Heron Fishing A Marsh

This is my preferred photography. The animal, a detailed environment, and some contrasting colors.

If you look close you can even find Moor Hens.

I think it tells a nice story of what these areas really look like. That’s important since not many people will ever see this, and that’s too bad.

Favorite Spot For These Spoonbills

This year we were lucky with the Spoonbills favorite spots. This was one and almost too convenient. The only entrance to a large Wildlife Management Area.

Getting to the marshes requires going down a dirt road, on a dike, separating 2 waterways. They picked a spot here that even had room to pull a car over.

It’s not like they were there all the time, but at some point this entire group would come in and dig around for awhile.

And ignore us since we always give them their space.

If the feeding was good they would approach fairly close to us as they had become comfortable with the other 2 legged critters.
