Here are a few photos I took and added to the Fort Worth Nature Center Wildlife gallery on Friday afternoon. link
This past weekend, my son and I had a chance to take photos at the Fort Worth Nature Center (first time in a long time). We found a very cooperative couple of Snowy Egrets that insisted on posing for us. Here are a couple of them and a link to a few more in my FWNC Wildlife gallery.
The long-awaited replacement to the Fort Worth Nature Center’s Marsh Boardwalk finally arrived on Friday, March 10th. Here is a link to some additional images of the new facility. link
I haven’t had time to visit the FWNC much lately, but yesterday was such a beautiful day and I had been wanting to experiment with a new lens. We visited the Greer Island area and took a few shots near the entrance of the island. Here are a few of the photos. link
As we walked our dogs in a park next to Lake Worth, this colorful sunset appeared. I managed to capture a few quick images and thought I would share. Here is a link to a few more. link
A little over a week ago I had an opportunity to visit the Fennessy Ranch in Bayside, Texas. The ranch offered opportunities to see and photograph birds and other wildlife. The weather was beautiful and the facility personnel were friendly and knowledgeable. They led us on a tour a the facility and took us to a couple of bird blinds that provided most of the photos we took that day. More photos can be found at this link.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! I finally managed to get out to the nature center to take some fall color photos. Unfortunately, so much time had passed that most of the colors had faded. Still here are a few photos from the day. link
A couple of weeks ago, I found these spiders spinning their webs at the Fort Worth Nature Center. These creepy arachnids seemed to create an eerie, somewhat spooky mood as I photographed them. With the approaching Halloween season…thought I would share the spookiness. link BOO!!!
I haven’t had much time to take any wildlife photos lately, but did manage to spend an afternoon at the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Reserve a few weeks ago. The prairie dog population has definitely suffered over the last few years and it is obvious that there population has diminished greatly. The bison were wandering around throughout the park and did provide some photo opertunities. That and a few veiws from the top of Mount Scott pretty much covered the day’s shoot. Here is a link to some of the images. link
Spring is here and the migrations are starting to show. Here are some images of White-Faced Ibis that are making their appearances at the nature center. I also included a couple of Cormorant photos as well. link
