Jordan Lake: Somehow, even though I have rendered Hershey into black and white, our eyes and our souls feel and fly with his majesty. Interesting how that transformation works …
Jordan Lake: Yesterday we saw a Pine Warbler – as I described it – tumbling after an insect. One of my friends suggested that really the better adjective was to say that the warbler had launched. I certainly think that adjective could also apply to today’s photos. This great blue heron had perched way at the top of the pine tree. Suddenly he was up off the top and headed down. Truly a full wing, full force, headed down launch!
Jordan Lake: I watched this female Osprey Fledgling catch a fish this morning. Then she promptly did what she needed to do next: the youngster shook off all the excess water from her dive and lightened the weight she had to carry in her flight to a nearby tree. The shake is done exactly the way a dog does one … starts at the beak and twists through to the tail.
Jordan Lake! Peregrine Falcon!! This speedy bird came off of the Ebenezer Beach area and it was heading south down the lake. I saw it and caught seven rapid fire shots of it. And the bird was gone. It was not even doing its famed 200 mph hunting speed. The falcon was only cruising as it went past. I don’t usually see peregrine falcons at the lake until December. So wondering why this one showed up this early. Sure hope you enjoy the speedster!
Jordan Lake. The moon, edging towards fullness on Monday, was caught in layered clouds. The great egret winged towards a safe roost in the trees for the night. May your sleep also find soft lit dreams in which to safely dwell for the night. Peace and Grace, Doc Ellen
Jordan Lake. Been a while since I have posted a Natural Minute. World has been going by too fast and too noisy. However, this morning I managed to find 60 seconds of serenity for all of us. Take care, be safe. Stay oh so well.
