Greater Yellowlegs

I found these Greater Yellowlegs wading in water yesterday. I don’t ever remember seeing this type of bird before. I’m not sure if they spend the summer here or may have been passing through the area. In any case, I’m happy to have run across them while I had my camera with me 🙂

Luminous Green

The waves of Lake Michigan themselves can make for a great photographic subject. Each is unique and ever changing. In this case I caught the sun backlighting the wave, revealing luminous shades of green at the wave’s peak.

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.
