Hi, friends!  Today’s blog post covers pictures I took on Dec. 9, 2013.  It was cold, gray, and icy out. One excuse for my slowness in getting this post done is because I’ve been setting up a new PC.  My old PC is 4 years old and lately has been running at a crawl. ... Continue Reading

Today’s shots are from Nov. 4th, 2013, when the weather was gray, cloudy, and showery.  I’m using a mixture of focal lengths today–some 500mm, 700mm, and 1000mm.  At the end of the day, it got dark very early due to the thick cloud cover and I tried some high ... Continue Reading

Well, this is my first wildlife shoot since the Ridgefield NWR re-opened due to the government shutdown (which I don’t even want to think about let alone talk about!)  I’d much rather talk about photographing birds and other wildlife, which is what I plan to do here. ... Continue Reading

It’s May and visitors are now allowed to exit their vehicles at the refuge but still must stay on or near the road in most cases. I had heard that the Great Horned Owlets have fledged and was anxious to see if I could spot them.  It’s nice to know that we can now ste ... Continue Reading

As I recall, Feb. 8 at the Ridgefield NWR was very dreary and dark (I’m writing this about 6 weeks later).  It was another one of those high ISO days.  All the photos I’m posting today were taken at either ISO 800 or 1600, except for the nutria shot, which was shot ... Continue Reading

Dec. 9, 2011- Fri. – Ridgefield NWR (11 photos)

A super day, weather-wise, greeted me at the Ridgefield NWR this morning as I arrived around sun up (about 8 a.m.).  Surprisingly, there was little fog and more blue sky than I’ve seen at the refuge in a long time. I had received an email and a call yesterday (Dec. 8 ) fro ... Continue Reading
