I was not expecting to see an Osprey perched above #Denville Park Meadows today. Hopefully this bird catches a few trout en route to its breeding grounds.

A wide angle and intimate shot near Hog Pen seemed to “animate the emotions” of this tree to me.

What do you see?

A vivid morning sky was enough motivation for me to sprint out to the backyard to grab a few shots.

Pileated Woodpecker Pair in Denville NJ

On a recent morning walk around the block in Lake Arrowhead I came across Mr & Mrs Woodpecker spiraling their ways around the base of a tree. In my experience, Pileateds may tolerate a close approach by a stealthy photographer.

This was a challenging shot in order to freeze the action of two moving birds in the shade. This lucky exposure occurred at 1/60th of a second which is a chance occurrence for handholding a telephoto lens.

Cell phone video of these Pileated Woodpeckers can be seen here – https://www.facebook.com/daveblinderphotography/posts/1983099445196194

On a recent June morning 2 egrets as a Great Blue Heron were active near the beaver dam. The pile of feathers at the egret’s feet are a result of preening.
