We took a drive out to Cape May on Sunday. The wind was not right for a big hawk migration, but it was still a gorgeous day to walk around and enjoy the trails and the quaint town. We did find a Merlin enjoying his breakfast (not a pretty picture for most of us, but this is the circle of life).
Not seeing many at all this year. Awfully sad! I hope they come back in the numbers of years ago. I saw this lone, beautiful butterfly by the Bay today fluttering around. Luckily I had the camera ready to go!
It is such fun working in Photoshop to create “art” from my photographs. A couple of samples today. The crystal ball started out as a flower!
Caught some great Bokeh in the first Sanderling photo.
And, enjoyed watching them bathe in the ocean……
This photograph I took in Iceland reminds me of how I personally feel when looking at the beauty of nature. However, we do not have to be in another country to see the beauty. All we need to do is open our eyes and observe.
Many of the birds I enjoyed following and photographing all summer are leaving the area. Although I am now looking forward to possible Snowy Owl sightings, the Bald Eagles in Conowingo, Hawk Migration, I am surely missing these familiar encounters already as I walk our beach.
I am also including a few photos from this morning’s sunrise walk.
