This snowy owl is a beach bum. It likes to hunt at Pere Marquette beach in Muskegon, Michigan and it made an appearance while I was there this weekend.
I went with some family members to the White Lake area, (Whitehall, Michigan), to see the old shipwreck that was naturally unearthed by wind and waves. By the time we arrived most of it was re-buried.
The above images were captured using a Canon point and shoot camera.
The sky over Lake Michigan was magnificent yesterday during our weekly ride around Pere Marquette ovals in Muskegon.
God is good! Out of the blue He leads me to a photo-op.
Usually this happens when I change my plans on a whim. This time I walked out the door planning to take my usual morning walk in the woods but I forgot to put on mosquito spray, (they were buzzing around me), so I decided instead I’d get in the car and go for a ride with my camera. I only rode around the block and even that was on a whim. I was going to go a different route but a car coming up behind me made me decide to turn to get out of it’s way.
I saw how pretty the sunlight looked streaming through the trees so I pulled off on the shoulder of the road to capture a picture of it. The biker startled me a little when he silently came up from behind and whizzed past as I was getting out of the car with my camera. The timing was perfect!
Thank you Lord! (and biker)
I call our resident male cardinal(s) Kookaburra, not because of their “laugh” (thank heavens.. have you ever heard a real Kookaburra?) but because he truly is the king of his territory. I’ve watched epic battles between the males fighting for the front yard feeder. When he wins a battle he perches high on his favorite branch and sings his victory song.
I guess the loser got the back yard territory.
