I went out early to follow the Great Blue Heron as usual, but this time I was in for a treat. I captured a moment I will never forget and I hope you don’t either.
The adult Heron was a bit late to check up on its baby. I walked by the lake when she flew in about ten feet from me. Once again, I went unnoticed because of my camouflage. I immediately noticed something different about the Heron, it was injured on the right wing. It must have been attacked by something large, because it had a big wound on the top of its wing. After taking a few photographs, I realized it was fine, when it flew off gracefully to attend to its baby waiting for food.
I ran quickly to catch some photos of it landing so high in the tree, when I was presented with something much more beautiful. Continue reading
While walking by a lake, I noticed four Crows fighting each other. I became curious, zooming in at 300mm and manually focusing in on one of them. I couldn’t believe it, it had a Frog in its mouth. Continue reading
I was observing a Heron, when these two beautiful green birds arrived to eat. I was in the process of leaving, when something caught my right peripheral view. They camouflaged perfectly with the green surrounding plants, only noticeable when it moved to eat. Here’s footage of the smaller one eating. Continue reading
My Great Blue Heron adventure started on June 30th, 2014. An employee at the hotel I was staying noticed I was a nature photographer.

At first glance, I knew its entire existence was dedicated to what it laid on. It choose a high spot on a tree with two or three branches. I thought to myself, “that’s an odd spot to lay an egg.” I’ve already been at the hotel a week or so, to know large Hawks prey on small animals in the area. Continue reading
I love getting up early to capture the sunrise. While waiting for the sun to peak above the clouds, I hear the morning birds singing. It’s a moment that makes you appreciate living. The cool air warms as the shine readjusts your eye’s view, extending a hand to cover them. I hear a squirrel in the distance chewing on a nut. Every living creature that survived the horrors of the night slowly wake. Continue reading
During my trip to Faver Dykes state park I came across this toppled tree. At first I made nothing of it, until the clouds suddenly uncovered the sun and light highlighted the area.

Every animal has a moment of glory, no matter how big or small, common or rare. As a nature photographer you must capture that moment that magnifies the animal’s beauty. I can’t stress this enough, timing is everything when photographing wildlife. Continue reading
Mushrooms come in all colors, shapes and sizes, but part of these white mushrooms I photographed in Silver Springs, Florida, resemble human teeth. I like to find a bit of mankind in nature because it signifies the relationship we have with Mother Earth. As if she tries to create her own natural portraits of the human body from time to time.
