Onward to 2019

Happy 2019 to you all!

My hope for this year is to keep up with my blog. Posting on facebook and Instagram seems to be getting a bit old.  I find myself always second guessing whether I am posting too much, not enough, what kind of photographer am I?  Does it really matter?  So I have decided to lay back a bit and just write about those really special happenings that I come across in my travels on my blog, whether it's just in my back yard or another state or country.  Sometimes a beautiful photo will follow, sometimes it may not but it doesn't matter.  I figured I would start with showing you just some of my highlights from last year.  I am sure there are so many that I have forgotten but here are just a few.

 A wonderful visit from a Red Fox in our back yard. After catching and eating a squirrel
it laid down and licked it's paws and rested for a bit before moving on.

This Pileated Woodpecker was so focused on this tree, he didn't even know I was nearby
I was happy to come across Bobolinks at a nearby Farm in my town!
While gardening a Promethea moth landed on my pants. I had never seen one before
so you can imagine how exciting it was. 

I had decided when the first Ruby-throat hummingbird showed up this spring, that I was going to
devote most of my time to photographing them throughout the summer. I was fortunate to capture
a lot of behavior shots as well as the males going through their molting before migrating back.

Entertainment at the small feeders!

The last really special visitor was a flock on Evening Grosbeaks a few weeks ago.
They stayed for about half the day and I haven't seen the since. I do hope they return!
