Stars of the Equinox

After driving down a westbound road, directly into the blinding sun as it was setting, I waited until dark to capture the beauty of the stars on this Autumnal Equinox. I also managed to find a shooting star in one image in addition to a portrait of the moon I took shortly after the sunset.

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 🙂

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 🙂

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 🙂

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.
