Our Newest Image: ‘Cedar Key By Sea’

I finished this image on the fourth anniversary of the day we took it (no, that’s not bragging – just coincidence). But it is the third image we’ve introduced (see Introducing “Royal Terns” and Cedar Keys Lighthouse: A New Gigapan) from the fateful day that I ruined Nancy’s best camera and lensstory. We finished our […]

Introducing Our Birder Collection

Subsequent Screech Owl Stories

Since the nesting screech owls left us (see Our Screech Owl Image – The Rest Of The Story, which is about the subject owl family in our image “Mother Screech Owl with Fledgling” (a link to that page is in the article)), we’ve had a few noteworthy encounters with our local screech owls. In the […]

We’ve had these woodpeckers in our yard before, but never did one just hang out in the Jatropha tree (where our bird feeders and other birds are) just outside the kitchen window before. There were no screens in those windows at the time, so Nancy carefully rolled up […]

It turns out Deborah Gray Mitchell, one of the commenters, was right; the image was upside down. To be more precise, I flipped the image vertically […]
