The First Post After a Long Hiatus

leave a comment »

So here I am, midway through May, posting for the first time since August. (Actually, it’s probably been longer, since the last scheduled-ahead-of-time post was in August.) Whoops.

The reasons for me not posting are many and boring; suffice it to say, I fell out of the habit. There were even a few months when I was not taking very many pictures — mostly towards the end of winter, when it rained on Every. Single. One. of my days off for two plus months. Thanks, Mother Nature!

But the return of spring and nicer weather has me dusting off my equipment. I’m out biking again, dodging the few folks to be found on Dune Road this early in the year. And I’ve got new equipment (which, regrettably, I’m still learning how to use) in my arsenal. Expect to see more macro shots, more insects and arachnids and tiny things less than a millimeter across. My obsession last summer turned out to be dragonflies, and I’m interested to see, now that I’ve got better equipment to photograph them with, if it will remain with them or translate to some other, smaller creature.

The First Signs of Spring

leave a comment »

This weekend still looks promising, weather-wise, even if yesterday did go awry. After all, the sun is supposed to come back, the weather is supposed to warm up, and these shoots, which were photographed almost a month ago, have grown taller and are supposed to bud soon (even if they haven’t done so quite yet).

The Woodpecker on the Branch

My favorite female downy woodpecker, clutching at the branch just before diving down to the suet cake at the feeder, on a warm spring day.
