Frozen Shore

The shoreline of Lake Michigan appeared in frozen beauty yesterday at Oval Beach in Saugatuck, Michigan.

Family Swim

I found these ducklings swimming with their mother on a local waterway. Most of the time they were following her, but there were moments like this when they seemed to lead the way ๐Ÿ™‚

Nice Discovery

As I noticed a butterfly floating near some flowers in the distance, I moved in to photograph it. But as I arrived, the butterfly had flown away. As I looked closely examining the flowers, I discovered a fly glistening in the sunlight displaying its own colors. One of the nice things about nature photography is that you never know what you may run across ๐Ÿ™‚

Beach Sunset

Its always a pleasure to enjoy the beauty of Lake Michigan and its beaches at anytime. But as the sun sets the sky erupts with color, the shadows on the waves deepen and the reflections on the wet sand are on display.

Beauty in the Details

Looking through my files I found this image of an American Kestrel I took a while ago. Getting in close enough to see the beauty in the details of its feathers, the subtle coloring, etc. makes this one special to me. Hope you enjoy seeing it as well ๐Ÿ™‚

Great Blue

Great Blue Herons are one of my favorite subjects to photograph. I was especially happy to be close enough to photograph this one in flight.

Look Around

It was amazing to see these two visions of the sky within seconds of each other. As I finished photographing the dark sky in one direction, I looked around behind me to see another beautiful view.

Summer Solstice

The longest day of the year here in Michigan had plenty of sunshine as this Tiger Swallowtail butterfly demonstrated, soaking up the sun and nectar from flowers in a local field I discovered.
