Backyard Autumn Nature in New Jersey.

Time-Lapse Video of Dawn and Sunset Panorama at Sunset. Both were done with a Fuji X-T2 camera and 16 mm f/1.4 lens. I also did dawn through sunrise with a  Garmin VIRB-360 camera but didn’t like the color/white balance. And since the Garmin camera only records jpg images it is difficult to modify the colors in post processing.

Backyard Nature in New Jersey.

Not many leaves left on the Sycamore tree. The soaring turkey vulture is just one of many (I think over 50) that are now roosting in the pine trees between my house and my neighbor’s house every night.

Gone to See Florida Fall 2014 Road Trip. Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge.

Great Blue Heron appearing to walk on water as it comes in for a landing along Blackpoint Wildlife Drive. I’ve also included  slide shows with some of the other birds present that day: Anhinga, Black Vulture, Double-breasted Cormorant, Great Egret, Hawk, Osprey (with a fish), Tricolored Heron, and Turkey Vulture. Note that some of the Vulture images are graphic.
