Western Lowland Gorilla


Western Lowland Gorilla

I was trying to photograph a gorilla through a glass enclosure in Disney's Animal Kingdom and moved through the crowd until I could get a shot without too many reflections. After a few frustrating minutes with people moving in my way, I was able to get a few shots. When it yawned, it showed its teeth, and while it looks like he lost a few, I still wouldn't want it mad at me.

It must be a pretty boring life for an intelligent animal, but it probably was born in captivity and knows nothing else.
What did you think when you first saw the picture; that it was angry or sleepy?

Winter

Winter

I chose this photo of winter in Holyrood.  It was taken in the 1990s on Kodachrome slide film.  It was a calm but COLD day and I snowwhoed to Main Beach Pond, about 15 minutes from my house.

While winter photos are often beautiful, I don't often share many because most people don't really like winter and they tire of seeing photos of winter, while there is still snow and ice on the ground. 

However, if you like winter photos, I have several albums on my Facebook Pages.

Serenity





Serenity

Today, I chose a selection of photos that illustrate serenity.  Early morning and late evening is a quiet and peaceful time of the day.  I have hundreds, if not thousands of photos of beautiful sunrises and sunsets.  Over the years I have shared many of them with you.  If you use Facebook, I invite you to view the albums I have created.
I have others, but those are the most recent.  


Feel free to share with family and friends.

Christmas Photo Advent Calendar












Christmas Photo Advent Calendar

Those of you who follow me on Facebook know that I have been sharing photos every day since December 1.  I made comments on each photo in the morning and added them to my Christmas Album in the evening.  Today, I am sharing the ones I have shared so far.

I've been negligent in sending out my Photo of the Day each morning.  It has happened from time to time over the 17 years I have been sharing photos with you.  When I get new photos, I'll be more motivated.

Feel free to share with family and friends.

Green Herons










Green Herons

To be honest, I didn't realize I had so few photos of green herons in my collection. However, I decided to share a few with you today, and I created online albums with the rest of the photos I have.

Hopefully, I'll get more of this species. 

Feel free to share with family and friends.

Great Blue Herons
















Great Blue Herons

I have photographed great blue herons in Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, British Columbia and Florida.  Today's photos were taken on Florida.

The great blue heron is a beautiful and large bird that spends much of its time hunting prey in shallow pools.  I have many photos and, if you are interested, you can view more in my albums:
