Closer View of Stratford Point Lighthouse

This entry is part 5 of 5 in the series Stratford, Connecticut

  Today is my leaf racking day, so I have to get back out there.  However, I wanted to post this photo I took last night of the Stratford Point Lighthouse in Stratford, Connecticut.  I’ve posted another photo of the lighthouse (which can be seen here), but this time I used my Tokina 80-400 lens instead of the 16.5-135mm […]

Snake at Beardsley Zoo

This entry is part 5 of 6 in the series Beardsley Zoo

  Unfortunately, I’m not 100% sure the name of this snake.  I believe it’s a Boa, but I’m not positive.  According to the Beardsley Zoo website, they have over 20 different kinds of reptiles.  The closest one I see on the website is the “Emereld Tree Boa“, but the color and markings don’t look right to […]

  It’s been a long, hard week, so this will be a very short post.  Here’s a close-up photo of one of the Rhea’s at the Beardsley Zoo in Bridgeport, Connecticut.  This bird was kind of a ham and came right up to the camera and started posing. Over the weekend, I’m planning to sit down […]

Another View of Pickett’s Pond

This entry is part 4 of 4 in the series Osbornedale State Park

  One more view of Pickett’s Pond at Osbornedale State Park in Derby Connecticut.
