Here are five pictures of some tundra swans and cackling geese enjoying one of their favorite spots along the Pacific Flyway. Staten Island Preserve is surrounded by levees in The Delta. I turned my VW Eurovan into a mobile blind. I set up a tripod with a gimbal to support a telephoto lens inside the van where I could sat to shoot photos with the side door open. For me, I had a lot of fun and enjoyment too. And there’s a lot to be thankful too.
I took these photos of white swans, white geese, and a white egret in Staten Island Preserve, California. For me, it’s fun to see so many white migratory birds in one of the Pacific Flyway stops in North California.
Here’s a composite photo of an Encore visit to Staten Island Preserve, California. The photo is a composite of several photos. It’s mostly egrets, sandhill cranes and swans. The weather was stormy. Bad weather didn’t seem to bother any of the wildlife there.
As I was taking photos of the migratory birds along Staten Island Road, California, I kept thinking that it’s like a Champs-Elysées for them. It’s a place to see fellow birds and to be seen by fellow birds. There are a lot of cackling geese, tundra swans, and sandhill cranes. The preserve is part of the Nature Conservancy. Happy New Year 2019!
Here are six pictures that I took on a short trip to The San Joaquin-Sacramento River Delta Region in California. I took pictures of a Blue Heron, egrets, and swans. It was a beautiful day with the sky and wetlands crowded with wildlife birds. I used a Nikon D600 FX camera and a Nikon 80 to 400 mm telephoto lens. I also saw a lot of bird watchers too.
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.
