For the past several weeks as many (up to 100) turkey vultures have been spending their nights in the neighborhood. There are three houses and several other trees that they favor. The roofs of the homes are beginning to turn white.
The sky is clear today. I hope it stays clear tonight so I can do some night sky, star and meteor trails. Tonight is supposed to be good for the Geminid meteors.
I am a scientist by training (Eckerd College, BSc; Caltech, Ph.D.). I worked for 27 years as a Chemist in the Pharmaceutical Industry developing processes to manufacture medicines for human and animal health. I now spend my time as a photographer and world traveler. My interests in photography include the natural world, wildlife, landscapes, skyscapes, and seascapes. I have traveled to over 50 countries over the last 10 years, often on Semester at Sea voyages. While at home in New Jersey, I spend time on a home renovation project and expanding my wildflower garden/meadow.
