Low Overhead, Wood Stork

When flying this bird is so big you can have the head in focus, but the wings a complete blur. They have a 7 foot (2.1 meter) wing span.

Above the Stork is carrying branches for a nest. These images were shot while trying to get a good position on his flight path, back and forth to the nest.

Wood Storks are really impressive in flight, especially when down low.

 

 

Early Morning Out In The Open, Owl

Tall dead trees are busy places in open swamps and marshes. Typically it’s a hawk or eagle we see searching the area.

However this Barred Owl was using the height to find prey. In the Lowcountry that’s unusual, but maybe not in Georgia open swamps.

We were moving past so I never did see if he was successful.

Through A Window, Black And White

The pandemic has closed most historical sites. If you have visited this site for any amount of time you know how I love to photograph old historical homes and locations.

Finally I found some that I had access to. Well, almost.

The series of rooms here were shot through open windows. Please note I did not climb through any, I did lean (way) inside to get some open views.

I have no details here except to say they were buildings within the walls of Fort Clinch on the Florida coast.

I assume some, like above, were for military officers, enlisted men, and a few families.

It’s not the same as being inside the buildings and having historical information. But I did get a chance to practice my shooting, black and white images, and of course burglary window climbing skills.
