no blogger for now

I have had this blog since December 2007. Now Blogger has decided I have used all of my available space and is not allowing me to post photos. Oh, sure I can buy more space. For now you can find me over at http://tmoorephotography.wordpress.com/

Last week a phriend and I made plans to meet up at “my” Osprey nest. Sunrise came early on this hot summer morning. Barely taking the time to brush my teeth, I grabbed my camera and ran out the door.

Upon arrival Papa could be seen flying over head with a fish in his talons. He flew to the nest and would land for only a moment before taking off again. This was the first time I had seen this behavior. We realized he was taunting his offspring to come chase him for their meal. They met his challenge and with all the awkwardness of a toddler learning to walk, they took off for the skies.

Beside the biweekly meetings, our puppy club has a monthly fun outing. This evening was our annual boardwalk and ice cream palor trip. This is the newest "kid" on the block. Isn't she the cutest!!

At my last visit to the Osprey nest, babies were testing their wings and almost ready to fledge. I am hoping to catch one of their first flights. This evening I made a quick visit. Upon getting out of the car into the thick humid air, I was swarmed by black biting and greenhead flies. I decided to brave it out and walked to the nest. Babies were busy testing their wings and getting some lift. I shot off rapid fire and captured a bunch of what I thought would be great photographs, only to come home, upload and realize I had the totally wrong settings and all of the photos were black! Yes, after all this time I still have days like this.

I did get this shot of a dragonfly and was able to play around with it.
