Here are 16 photos that I took of wildlife at the Staten Island Preserve in the Sacramento River Delta Region, California. I took some on December 27 when the winter moon was approaching fullness. The rest I took on December 29 when the winter moon was full. For me, I always mentally engaged when I’m photographing wild birds in the Preserve. It’s fun for me. Happy New Year 2021!

Sandhill Cranes, Blue Heron, and Egret.
Here are eight images that I took of sandhill cranes, a blue heron, and an egret at Staten Island Preserve, California. The Preserve is near Walnut Grove, California . It is in The Sacramento River Delta Region in the Central Valley. The sandhill cranes have recently arrived for the fall season at this Pacific Flyway.

Woodbridge Ecological Reserve
Here are six pictures that I took while joining the OLLI Bird Safari Outing to Woodbridge Ecological Reserve near Lodi, California. We saw many different kinds of wild migratory birds there like blue herons, sandhill cranes, and more. The birds were backlighted by the sun so they were mostly in silhouette. David Yu was our instructor who gave us lots of information about the migratory birds found in the Reserve.
Central Florida Excursion
Here are some pictures that I took in Central Florida while visiting family there. I began with a sunset on Clearwater Beach on the Gulf of Mexico and ended with a sunrise on Flagler Beach on the Atlantic Ocean. Also I took some pictures of the oldest oak tree in Pinellas County, Tarpon Springs Sunset Cruise, Eola Lake in Downtown Orlando, Leu Gardens, and Flagler Beach. I used a Nikon D600 FX with Nikon lenses: 20 mm 1.8 wide angle, 50 mm 1.8 normal, and 70 to 300 mm telephoto. Central Florida has lots of beautiful sights to see. For me many more sights to photograph.
