Short-eared owl hunting.
Winning blooms on display for all to see!
Fall at the reconstructed Revolutionary War Encampment
Study of flower in my backyard. I believe it is a hyacinth.
Came across a small herd of deer playing in the snow.
This was a lifetime bucket list - I love all owls, but was thrilled to find a snowy owl right here in Jersey!!
These foxes were quite the celebrities this spring - the mama had 5 adorable, healthy kits that she took such loving care of!!
This beautiful red-tailed hawk was hunting to feed its hatchlings, nesting in the cliffs of North Bergen. We had to great fortune to watch the babies grow up, fledge, and learn how to be little raptors in the following months. The background is the Hudson River, but these hawks are not fis... Read more
There is so much to eat at Richard W. DeKorte Park, it's no wonder so many birds spend time there. This is the place to be for feathered friends!
Three Northern Flicker chicks looking for their parents and chirping for food
One of three Northern Flicker chicks being fed as a second chick looks on.
The female Northern Flicker is leaving the nest to gather food or nesting material. The nest was later seen to contain three chicks.
If you could only hear them all howling together! Absolutely beautiful creatures, and so well cared for by Jim & Becky! Well worth the visit, and nice to see these beauties thriving!
Belted Kingfishers feed on fish and small aquatic animals. This one seems to be considering the old adage about an "an apple a day."
Even though some of the Officers Row homes at Sandy Hook are in disarray, there is beauty in the architecture of the 1940s.
This male red-breasted merganser and its mate (not shown) lingered later than most of the migratory birds seen around Bay Head and Point Pleasant during the winter.
Snowy owl on the beach in Belmar - taken at a safe distance
What do a downy woodpecker, two brown sparrows, and a black-capped chickadee all have in common? They're hungry!
Holiday lights as seen from my window
As the pandemic has continued into 2021, we still face limitations in our lives: waiting, separation, wanting to go inside, needing to stay outside. This layered image was taken through a pane of glass using reflections, and encapsulates this new reality in which we are living.
Ducklings swimming at Grounds for Sculpture
The Harvest Moon, a traditional aid to farmers and crews harvesting their home-grown crops. I completely understand why! This moon was beyond bright! Took a new approach of imaging the moon and ended up using a variety of exposures ranging from 1/800 to 1/4000 all at f/4.9 250mm. Ended up... Read more
Stream at the mall near old Lord and Taylor
Photo taken at Whitesbog Village. There are so many beautiful natural resources at Whitesbog. I love going and seeing something different every time.
My first visit to the Edwin B. Forsythe Wildlife Refuge was this summer. The flies were relentless on the Wildlife Drive, so taking photographs was like some sort of military maneuver or strange new TikTok dance. Jump out of the car, frame, click, smack flies away, growl, run back to the c... Read more
Sunrise Shot at an Iconic Moorestown Location
Taken at one of the many Roadside Farm Stands New Jersey is famous for. Love Peaches
As the edge of Tropical Storm Henri approached the Jersey Shore, I wandered along the beach. While I marveled at the thick storm clouds drifting across the darkening sky, a fluttery movement caught my attention. I was surprised to see a butterfly floating past. It began a pattern of flying... Read more
Early morning photoshoot on the beach in Stone Harbor. I love shooting silhouettes—and with the sun rising in the background, this made for the perfect scene.
