Sky Appeal

The sky had some interesting looks today over Muskegon County, Michigan. The variations in color and contrasts with blue, white, grey and black, along with the green of the landscape, provided a great subject for me to capture.

Cabbage White Butterfly

I found what I believe to be a Cabbage White butterfly today. These are fairly common in the area, but are very active and tend to fly away quickly. I was happy to get a nice photo before it took off.

Beauty for All to See

The beauty of nature is all around us, just waiting for us to take a moment to stop and appreciate it. I did just that today when I found these wild flowers growing in Muskegon County, Michigan.

Here’s what I believe to be a Northern Shoveler duck I found in Muskegon County, Michigan a few days ago. So many ducks have very interesting colors and patterns, and this is no exception.

Here’s another bird I found in Muskegon, Michigan a few days ago that I’ve never seen before. Any guesses as to what it might be?

I found another interesting bird the other day in Muskegon County, Michigan. I think it might be a Sparrow of some kind.

Green-Winged Teal

This was an interesting duck that I found plowing through the water this week in Muskegon County, Michigan. I believe it to be a Green-Winged Teal which is the smallest North American duck with a short neck and bill. I hope to have the opportunity to photograph more of these in the future in various lighting conditions, because their color patterns look very interesting to me.
