Marsh Scene

Recently I have been gathering a group of photographs that show the colors and scenery of life in a Lowcountry marsh.

This image was to be included in that series however I’m finding a large number of images that could be included. I shoot a lot, sometimes I think too much.

Working on this I thought to publish it as a standalone here. Probably an easy way to keep the image without having too many for the final series.

Anyway…

Safe Landing In The Reeds, Stork

This time of year much of the thick reeds have been snapped and broken. Not a place to land without being careful.

Most will land right at the edge to avoid the sharp ends.

I thought this one got in a little close, but it worked out.

Always The Chance There’s More Here Than You See, Alligator

Pretty often there is something else happening in a photograph that we didn’t notice at the time. There are times it ruins an image but usually it’s nothing.

On this one I almost missed it. I assumed this big Alligator was by himself. Typically food is the only thing that makes them tolerate each other.

A second tail, the hard ridges, can just be seen on this guys right side. Based on the ridges he’s a lot bigger than the one we clearly see.

Being On The Runway, White Pelicans

This is one of the shots that I try to capture. A Pelican flock take off. Ideal would be a very near miss, right at me. It’s probably good that angle is rare. These are big birds and a miscalculation would really hurt.

An adult is 65 inches tall (165 cm), weights 317 oz (9000 g), and their wings are 114 inches (290cm). Like an airplane.

Being large it can take them a while to get in the air, some almost skip on the water.
