Red-breasted Merganser

Red-breasted Mergansers are usually social.

But in this case, there was a female involved and tempers flaired.

Iceland Gull, Winter Adult

I took some time on my day off to drive into Gloucester and head down to Eastern Point. I was rewareded by this stunning winter adult Iceland Gull. We usually get younger Iceland Gulls on Cape Ann. This is only the second adult that I have seen.

Three Amazing Osprey

This is probably not a photo that you would want to hang on your wall, but it does tell a story.

This is not what you want to see above you if you are a fish.

Barred Owl Photo Study

I was going to head over to my local farm store to pick up some produce and locally grown beef, but as started to open the garage door, I thought I spied an owl through one of the garage door windows as it scanned my vision throught the trees. I hit the stop button and closed the door.
Looked out another nearby window and sure enough, there was a Barred Owl! I was so lucky to spot it because if I drove out, it would have most likely flushed.

Snow Moon over Ipswich

We had 11 inches of snow the day before the Snow Moon. The next day we had snow again.

There was going to be a partial eclipse of the moon Friday night.

But by the time it started, the clouds were starting to come in. Oh well, such is life.

Forgotten Photo Friday, Crab, it’s what’s for dinner

Last Sunday I was shooting from the banks of the Merrimack River on the north end of Plum Island. This gave me a few opportunities to photograph the wildlife feeding on crabs. Below are two Herring Gulls and a Common Goldeneye.

Northern Harrier fly-by

I decided to get myself out in the cold, windy New England weather for a little while on Sunday morning and headed off to Plum Island in Newburyport, Massachusetts. I was rewarded with a Northern Harrier. Here she comes around the bend of the Merrimack river.

Nothing is more fun that photographing a Northern Harrier hunting in the grass.

Statira Sulphur

My best guess on this one is that it is a Statira Sulphur, found feeding on yellow flowers in a heavily mowed area in Dunedin, Florida.
