A Small Problem https://www.briankingimages.com/blog/2021/4/a-small-problem  

It's only April, but the neighbors are already being tormented by flies. Sometimes it gets so bad you do what you have to do - even rubbing your face on a tree for relief.

House Hunting https://www.briankingimages.com/blog/2021/4/house-hunting  

Tree Swallows have been heavily investigating the three bluebird houses along the fence line. They seem to favor the blue one, but have yet to go all the way inside, much less begin building a nest. So far they have only stuck the front half of their bodies inside before backing out. Bluebirds were very interested in the houses back in late autumn, but have not been around yet this spring.

Goldfinch - It's What's For Dinner https://www.briankingimages.com/blog/2021/3/goldfinch---its-what-s-for-dinner  

I noticed a flurry of activity (feathers) at the edge of the woods and saw this American Kestrel snag a goldfinch. I wish I could have moved closer, but there was no way to do it without spooking the Kestrel. As it was, it didn't stay long before flying off with its dinner.

Bringing Spring https://www.briankingimages.com/blog/2021/3/bringing-spring  

Grackles usually begin showing up here in late February and this year was no exception. They, along with red-winged blackbirds, are a good indicator that warm weather is getting close. Robins generally get the credit for announcing the arrival of spring, but grackles and blackbirds perform the job quite well. The grackles will breed, nest, and raise their young here before disappearing again in late summer.

Three Strikes https://www.briankingimages.com/blog/2021/3/three-strikes  

Earlier this month we had three winter storms in a row in a span of about ten days. The first brought mostly ice, the second brought a lot of sleet and some additional ice, and the third gave us snow on top of the ice which hadn't melted yet.

Autumn Eagles https://www.briankingimages.com/blog/2020/10/autumn-eagles  

While hiking near a rural lake recently, I came across a pair of bald eagles. Naturally, they were on the other side of the lake and even with my long lens the eagles were too far for decent portraits. Since I couldn't get close-ups of the raptors, I ended up photographing them with the fall foliage.

Lil' Beef https://www.briankingimages.com/blog/2020/9/lil-beef  

Our cow neighbors recently added some new members to the herd. I've photographed three, but since then a fourth has appeared.

The operation, in a nutshell, runs like this:

The herd is comprised of females (cows and heifers). Once a year a bull is brought in and left with the herd for a few weeks so he and any eligible females can do their thing. Once business is concluded the bull is removed. The cows and heifers give birth in the field. All calves are given ear tags at the first available opportunity. The tags often look like big, floppy earrings until the calves grow into them. If the calf is a female she will remain with the herd. If the calf is a male he will be removed from the herd after being weaned from his mother. That is normally six months or more after birth.

If you're curious, a cow is a female who has already had at least one calf. A heifer is a female who has not yet given birth to her first youngster.

Cloud Play https://www.briankingimages.com/blog/2020/9/cloud-play  

When people think of landscape and sky photography they often think of wide angle lenses. Wide angle lenses are certainly a staple for those types of photography, but not the only lenses you can use. A long telephoto or zoom will give you a very different perspective because you can isolate a specific element in a landscape or the sky.

Overheated Hummer https://www.briankingimages.com/blog/2020/8/overheated-hummer  

One day recently I went to the garage to get something and while I was there I kept hearing a buzzing sound from above. As I looked around to figure out what it was, I spied a hummingbird up near the ceiling. Despite the fact both garage doors were open, the hummer kept trying to fly upward literally banging itself against the roof. It's not the first time birds have been in the garage. Every spring Carolina Wrens start nests somewhere in the garage and hummers have flown inside in the past and had difficulty finding their way out.

As I watched, this hummer basically dropped from the air and landed somewhere in the second floor loft. The upper portion of the garage gets quite hot in the summer and it appeared the hummingbird had exhausted itself trying to find a way out. I located the little one on some boxes and picked it up in a towel and took it outside. After several minutes it did not seem in any shape to fly off so I carried it to a table on the front porch where it would be in the shade.

Long story short, it took almost two full days before the little one recovered enough to fly off on its own. Fortunately, we were able to feed it nectar by hand (or finger as it were) to help it regain strength. It's pretty cool to feel a hummer's tiny tongue against your finger as it drinks! While it was recuperating, I was able to get close up photos I would never otherwise be able to get.

The adventures of Snowball the silly squirrel continue. Several times she has ventured onto the front porch to chew on a couple of door mats. One in particular has several holes in it and we could never figure out why until one day when she was caught in the act. It's not the mat pictured below which is much less damaged.

Foxxy II https://www.briankingimages.com/blog/2020/7/foxxy-ii  

There's an area on the property we refer to as the grove. It's a large bowl-shaped feature with lots of big rocks and several large trees. It's been known to have snakes, chipmunks, field mice, and occasionally rabbits and squirrels in it. Late one afternoon this red fox ran out of the woods, across the yard, and into the grove. It spent several minutes looking under various rocks probably hoping to find dinner.

Snowball https://www.briankingimages.com/blog/2020/7/snowball  

We saw this young Fox Squirrel in the yard for the first time last week. The white tail is the result of a recessive trait that causes a lack of pigment in the tail. This is different from an albino squirrel which lacks color pigment throughout the entire body. This youngster has been nicknamed Snowball.

Make Yourself At Home https://www.briankingimages.com/blog/2020/6/make-yourself-at-home  

One afternoon I noticed this Eastern Rat Snake sunning itself on the top rail of the front porch. When I walked out to take photos, it made its way along the rail and then turned downward toward the bottom rail. After reaching the bottom rail, it made a U-turn and went through the hole in one of the porch posts (third photo) and down to the porch itself. It then crawled across one of the porch mats and hung out under the table for a bit. With some encouragement from a broom, it finally found its way off the porch and over to the fence line next to the pasture.

Git Along Little Doggy https://www.briankingimages.com/blog/2020/3/git-along-little-doggy  

One recent morning about 11:00 a lone coyote visited the cow herd next door. Most of them were laying down taking in the sun. They were apparently not too impressed with the furry brown creature because he eventually trotted off across the field without rousting the herd. Only a curious young cow followed. This was the second time we've had a coyote near the house during the day. The first encounter was a coyote in our yard about 4:00 in the afternoon. We think it was possibly stalking our dog that was laying in the backyard at the time.

Good Neighbors https://www.briankingimages.com/blog/2020/2/good-neighbors  

It's nice to have neighbors who spend most of their time eating and resting. The only noise is the occasional bawling from one of the moms when the young ones aren't keeping up.

The Year In Photos https://www.briankingimages.com/blog/2019/12/the-year-in-photos  

It's always difficult to choose my favorite photos from the past year. I have various reasons for liking certain photos. Sometimes it's the subject or the composition or the light or maybe a "first", but it could also be something sentimental connected to the photo and known only to me. At any rate, these are my personal favorites from 2019.

Fence Jumper https://www.briankingimages.com/blog/2019/8/fence-jumper  

One recent evening there was a young 6-point buck standing in our front yard. In the short time it took me to get my camera, the deer had jumped the fence into the pasture next door, ran across and jumped the next fence and crossed that field. I had to divert from the front yard to the back yard to get photos. By that time, the buck was a good distance away. He followed the third fence line for a bit and then jumped that one into a meadow.

The local Red Fox managed to get atop a round bale in the field next door and take an early morning nap. If you're not familiar with round bales, they aren't exactly small, so this fox showed a bit of agility in getting up top.

iPhone Critters https://www.briankingimages.com/blog/2019/6/iphone-critters  

I rarely go anywhere without my cell phone. It's not because I'm worried about missing a call or text, but because of the camera. I don't know how many times I've seen something I wanted to photograph, but didn't have my DSLR. Well, iPhone to the rescue. While cell phones are no where near a dedicated DSLR for fast action, far away subjects, etc., I have used mine many times for landscapes, sky photos, and still life. And because cell phones can now shoot in RAW format it makes the photos even better.

 

This young starling fledged from the nest way too early and ended up beyond the notice of his parents. I placed him back below the nest hoping mom or dad would hear his chatter and feed him, but apparently that did not happen. I found him dead a day or so later. While I am not a starling fan, I wanted to give him the opportunity to make it. Mother Nature decided otherwise. The other babies did not leave the nest for another couple of weeks.

This Assassin Bug was on the railing of the back porch steps. It wasn't too much larger than the young Praying Mantis.

A couple of days ago I heard a loud thump on the back door and found this juvenile grackle on the porch. It hit the door so hard it fell upside down and couldn't right itself. I placed it on the back steps to see if it would recover. About fifteen minutes later it flew off to a nearby fence and then into the woods.

Smigeon The Pigeon https://www.briankingimages.com/blog/2019/5/smigeon-the-pigeon  

A few weeks ago we had a pigeon show up out of the blue at the feeders. It must be a country pigeon because we're nowhere near the city. I've never had a pigeon at my feeders even when I lived in town. Smigeon is always by himself and has been a regular since first appearing. Sometimes the Mourning Doves look at him like he's the weird cousin they've never met.

Feelin' Foxy https://www.briankingimages.com/blog/2019/4/feelin-foxy  

This pretty little Red Fox showed up one recent evening in a nearby field. It spent thirty minutes or so hunting and hopping around, often with success. I'm guessing field mice. It was quite a distance away and a stretch even for my big lens. Unfortunately, I couldn't get any closer without trespassing and/or scaring the fox away.

Sunbathing https://www.briankingimages.com/blog/2018/9/sunbathing  

My Internet access was down for over a week thanks to some utility workers who cut an underground line. It was both good and bad. It was bad in the sense that it made me feel out of the loop, but good in that I started reading a book I had been meaning to get to for a couple of months. I also started a new journal so that was a plus. The hummers didn't care about the Internet and kept visiting so I kept taking photos. Another plus.

Baby Blues https://www.briankingimages.com/blog/2018/8/baby-blues  

Blue Jays are intelligent birds that form close family bonds. They can be quite noisy often imitating the calls of hawks, but they can also be completely silent when swooping in to feeders. They have a fondness for acorns and nuts and are not shy about cramming as much as they can into their gullet.
