The Streak

. . . with apologies to Ray Stevens 😉 Sometimes you just need lots of fps, a bright, sunny day, and a subject with no shame.

LeRoy Island

There is not much about Leroy Island that would make it stand out among the several small islands and peninsulas dotting Sodus Bay. It’s accessible by a pretty-much-one-lane bridge, where there are no signs blaming your GPS for misdirecting you; in fact, there is a sign welcoming you– as long as you are a fisherman who promises to take your trash with you when … Read More LeRoy Island

Pretty Woman. . .

. . .the kind I’d like to meet (on the side of the road in an old cornfield!)

Rocky Racoon? or maybe a long-lost cousin.

There were ten of them!

Saw them near Montezuma today. Such beautiful birds!  Could use a little post-processing, maybe, just to correct the color (these are jpgs, so were processed in-camera), but I think their natural beauty shows through without it.  

Photos Gone Wild

Wildlife.  It’s all around us.  All you have to do is look 🙂 Well, yeah, that’s true for the easy ones, like squirrels or chipmunks in the backyard.  Hawks are easy, too, sitting atop utility poles, as are turkeys pecking in harvested cornfields, ducks bobbing on the lake, and the occasional deer grazing along the roadside are good practice.  Most of them –except maybe … Read More Photos Gone Wild

Here’s Me

I’m a short. round, opinionated old lady. You can distinguish me from other short, round, opinionated old ladies because I’m the one dragging my camera and gear around in a polka-dotted Kate Spade bag.  When I am not roaming the Montezuma Wildlife Refuge or Sterling Nature Center or the marshes alongside Route 38, I am probably wishing I was.  I don’t know why plants … Read More Here’s Me
