Tufted Titmouse in Flight

Tufted Titmouse in Flight

This entry is part 5 of 13 in the series Birds at My Birdfeeder

  Wow, those Tufted Titmouse (Baelophus bicolor) are quick little guys.  I tried many shots to get one in flight and so far this is the best of the lot.  I’m not particularly happy with it – for example, the feet are a little blurry.  But, I thought I would share my minor victory in the quest […]

  In my visit to Bluff Point State Park in Groton Connecticut, this Mute Swan (Cygnus olor) was gliding along in the Poquonnock River with it’s mate.  There’s a little lens flare, but I think it actually adds a little to the photo. The trail I was following goes from the parking area to the […]

Goats at Action Wildlife in Goshen, Connecticut

This entry is part 1 of 2 in the series Action Wildlife

  About a month ago I visited Action Wildlife, a wildlife park in Goshen, Connecticut.  Action Wildlife is approximately 116 acres and used to be a dairy farm.  The current owners have stocked it with various “grazing” or “herd” type animals (for lack of a better name).  You won’t find any primates or predator type animals here, […]

This entry is part 6 of 6 in the series Housatonic River

  I took this photo from the picnic area at Housatonic Meadows State Park located in Sharon, Connecticut.  It was a beautiful Autumn day and I was on a marathon photography day.  The fall colors weren’t as nice as some other years, but still nothing to complain about.  By the way, this area was hit […]
