Here are some pictures of meal time at Tuckahoe Creek. The Great Blue Herons had some good luck, but they were completely overshadowed by the otters. I have never seen such a successful group of predators in person before. I’m glad I am not a fish in this creek! I hope you enjoy these shotsContinue reading “Meal Time At Tuckahoe”

Birds In The Garden
Last week I took another trip to Maymont. During this visit, I happened to stumble upon a heron and some ducks in the Japanese Garden. I hope you enjoy the photos! Seeing wild birds in a park like this is truly special.
Occoneechee State Park
On Friday, I visited Occoneechee State Park in Clarksville, Virginia. The park gets it’s name from the Native Americans that called this area home for centuries.

I recently hiked the North Bank and Buttermilk loop trail in Richmond again. This is a great hike that is close to home. I hope you enjoy the photos from this trip out!

Last week, I posted some photos from Tuckahoe Creek Park. Today I have more feathered friend pictures from that trip to share. I hope you like them!
Tuckahoe Creek Park
I recently went to Tuckahoe Creek Park in Henrico County. This park is tucked between a neighborhood and a wetland filled with wildlife. Due to it’s proximity to the water, the only walkway is a well maintained boardwalk. It was very popular with the people in the surrounding homes. I will definitely be going back!
I recently got a tip on where to find a river otter. After sitting in the rain for a while, I finally found one! It looked right at the camera several times like it was posing for me. It was great!
Here is another group of bird photos I have taken while exploring around the James River. Enjoy!
The James In February
Last month, I took some photographs of the James River in the mid to later afternoon. I was able to get some great pictures in the afternoon light. I hope you like them!
River Long Exposures
I was able to try long exposure photography again a few weeks ago. This year for Christmas I got a new monopod that I got to use for this. I set my camera up on the monopod, attached a variable neutral density filter to my lenses and used my remote shutter. What that all means:Continue reading “River Long Exposures”
