While photographing the
USS Hudner, I also caught some pictures of birds in Boston Harbor. Double-crested Cormorants and seagulls mostly. They are also at my shore bird Flickr album.
I posted more pictures from my trip to Virginia and Washington DC in August. This time, they are of the Smithsonian National Zoo.
While on Georges Island, I had to take pictures of the many seagulls that hangout at and fly over the island. Here are a select few I particularly like and a slide show of them all.
New 55mm-300mm lens attached to my camera, I went wandering around the neighborhood and found sparrows looking for their meals:
An American Robin flew into our yard yesterday morning. I managed to get a few decent pictures of it:
The Pirate Party had its annual Pirate Picnic on Georges Island today. I’ll post the best pictures I took later, but for now enjoy a slow motion video of the wake of the ferry on the way back to Boston. Hopefully you will find it calming.
My dog found this one by itself in our back yard. It is probably the animal that keeps knocking the top off of our compost bin.
Two pictures that would be better with a telephoto lens. Lots of megapixels helps though.
