Full moon rising over Ipswich
The Common Green Darner is the biggest bugs that I photograph. This one flew out of the grass along the edge of the driveway as I was arriving home after work on October 12th. She flew into the phragmites (common reeds) that grow on the edge of the salt marsh. Except for the possibility of a late season Autumn Meadowhawk, this is most likely my last dragon in Massachusetts for this year.
The French King Bridge is along Rt 2 in Massachusetts. It spans the Connecticut River. I had a free Saturday, so I took a drive out towards Vermont to do some leaf peeping. This imager shows a an optical illusions where it appears that I botched the horizon line in the photo, but I assure you, this is actually correctly balanced! I know because I used my camera’s level indicator to verify the setup prior to taking the image.
As I mentioned yesterday, I was down in Clearwater, Florida for a few weeks. I had absolutely no time to go our shooting! But I did find this Northern Mockingbird at eye level on a hedge singing his little heart out. I couldn’t resist.
My apologies for not being around for a couple of weeks. All is well and it is good to be home. I didn’t have any time to go out with my cameras, in fact, I had about one hour. Here is a Great Egret that I found along the way.
