Leaving the Nest with Two Watching

Osprey flying from the nest while to babies look on.
Two eyases have their heads down, and all we can see is their eyes peeking out from the nest. I took this at Sonoma Lake, Sonoma County, CA.

A Meal

Great egret eating a fish
This great egret had just caught this fish. The bird’s beak is about 6″ or 15 cm long. That’s a pretty big meal. It had no problem getting it down its long throat. I took this at Inverness on Tomales Bay.

Nestlings

Translucent

little flower with raindrops.
I found this little flower growing in some grass in one of my neighborhood parkways. The raindrops seemed to glisten, and the petals are translucent.

Garden Pansy
I photographed this garden pansy with raindrops using my iPhone RX while walking in my neighborhood.

Scrub jay at the feeder
I’ve set up my camera to capture birds as they come to eat. I’m using a cover over my lens to block out any reflection from the window.

White Cactus Flower

These beautiful flowers only last about a day and they wilt away.
