While I was at the Watershed Nature Center this morning I was watching some birds at a feeder. As I turned around this is what I saw. Thankfully the standoff ended peacefully.



Welcome to 2017

Hello little one

Another wonderful morning out shooting wildlife and nature in the local area. Today I went to the Watershed Nature Center in Edwardsville. I had done shooting up there yesterday and wanted to go back. Just as I was finishing up I ran into this little fawn hiding in the grass. It was a bit wary of me but continued eating the grass for a few minutes then decided it had had enough of me and it took off. It is getting shots like this that make getting up early on my days off worth it.

Busy bee

Took a nice walk around the Watershed Nature Center this morning. Saw lots of birds and insects along the way. I just loved watching this busy bee hitting all the flowers along the way.

The first snow

Been a while since I’ve posted. This shot is from the Watershed Nature Center in Edwardsville Illinois after our first real snowfall of the year. It came a bit early but made for some nice shots.
