Great Horned Owls seem to prefer hunting from elevated areas that overlook fields. They can hear and see their prey more easily from such an unobstructed vantage point. This one I photographed in Southwest Michigan near such a field.

These birds reminded me of Christmas tree ornaments as they rested on the branches of a pine tree.

Oh Canada

I captured the moment this flock of Canada geese were flying as the sun set. The afterglow painted the sky a pale pink color while the group of birds sailed through the air.

Hiding in Plain Sight

Walking by a tree with this owl carefully hiding, you could be forgiven for not seeing it. I caught this little one peaking out from a hiding place.

When given the opportunity, I enjoy photographing ducks in flight. On this day, I was pleased to get this group displaying some color.

Heavenly Flight

From this point of view I felt as if I were in the clouds with this flock of birds, flying toward heavenly realms.

Look Up

Sometimes all you need to do is look up, as I did when this green heron flew right above me in a wetland area in Southwest Michigan near sunset.
