Conowingo Dam Eagles

It was a nice day, mid to upper 30s, no wind with the electric turbines churning the down river side of the dam. Usually makes for some exciting eagle photos. Not so for today. Very limited activity... But... There were some co-operative participants.

Another Couple Hours at Worthington

I had a break in my day yesterday and was able to spend some time doing what I love doing. Not knowing what to expect when entering Worthington, I wound my window down and started creeping up the lane. Rarely there has been nothing to see. Often enough there have been many deer sightings. That is what keeps me coming back. The Red Shouldered Hawk was perched in a tree on my way back home. Fortunately he stayed put long enough for me to take a couple pics.

I'm Guessing We Got Lucky

We had a purpose when we left the house that morning and that was to hopefully find and photograph a piebald deer that has been seen in the area on a number of occasions. Steve has posted several photos on his blog. This was my first trip. It didn't take long before we got our opportunity. We were able to follow her for several minutes before her and  her companions had enough and bolted away. Then a little later in the morning we came upon another piebald. A buck. At the least an 8 pointer and possibly a 10. I was fortunate to get a few photos before he disappeared into the woods. What a treat that was. As you can see he has broken off a major portion of the main left beam. Also notice the length of the brow tines, 6 or 8 inches at least. I magnified one of the images for a better view.

Same animal different conditions.

A Fox Den at Lily Pons

Thanks to a good friend of mine, Steve Ferendo (take a look at his blog [Natural World Through My CamerA], I was able to photograph the fox kits that you see here. Steve directed me to the den location. These little fellas were quite entertaining to say the least. It was a lot of fun watching them.

The New Moon and the Rut

Things began really slow yesterday. Then from 3:00 on it kind of broke loose. First with lots of doe and then some bucks moved in. Lots of photos but only a few here.
