Male Forster's Tern is Feeding His Mate

That evening I spent a long time with female Foster's Tern who was waiting to be fed by her mate.  

That evening everything was just perfect, the female was close to the road, the stormy sky created nice gentle colors, and most importantly I could take as many photos as I wanted.  

The female was very persistent and never stopped asking for food.

Life goes on.

Goslings - I.


Last week I came across a family of Canada Geese and their seven goslings in our local Beau park. 

At first they all looked the same, but the longer I stayed with them, the more I saw how different they were.

Some of goslings were smaller and weaker.  Sometimes they lost their balance and fell, others were bigger and stronger.  

This gosling is taking a short rest.  Soon it will join its parents and siblings for a swim.

It's so nice and safe to be together.

I hope that all goslings will survive first year and become strong birds.  I wish them all good health and long life.

Life goes on.

Beautiful Glide of a Great Blue Heron

Watching Great Blue Herons fly to their nests was an opportunity that I don't get very often. 

The Heron in the photo above is flying in its classic pose.  It has left the nest and is heading for fishing. 


Approaching the nest the Heron stretches out its neck.  Landing should be calculated to the smallest little detail.  

The Heron is hovering in the air before landing on the nest.  It only lasts a few seconds.

Great Blue Herons are still at the Farmington Bay rookery.  Unfortunately, I haven't been there for a few weeks and, probably, the young ones grew up and got stronger.

Life goes on.

You Don't Have To Understand Everything You See

Yesterday I accidentally stumbled upon this creation and had no idea what it was. I found it interesting and tried to create something intriguing. 

Jesús Castellano, the Spanish photographer, suggested to crop the first image and make it vertical. Great idea!

Life goes on.
