Pileated3.jpg
Pileated3.jpgWoodpecker Story Part 34 viewsI returned to the big sycamore about a week later full of anticipation , but found a very strange looking object hanging out of the cavity. As I watched puzzled, I could see it was moving and eventually recognized the coils of a large black snake that had apparently climbed the tree trunk and was raiding the nest. I'm sad to say this story does not end well. I've seen no sign of the pileated 's return to the tree since.2 commentsEd HodgsonNov 10, 2017

Pileated2.jpgWoodpecker Story Part 22 viewsPileated Woodpecker, Salmon Brook Park, Granby, CT - June, 2017 - As I happily watched and took photos, the woodpecker entered a cavity high on the tree's trunk. Soon her (?) head popped out and she (?) looked around. It seemed clear this was a nest and I planned return visits for more fun and photos.

Sunrise-Sunset1.jpgSunrise Sunset - Edited3 viewsThanks to those who commented on this image Monday. Although I liked it as an element in the picture, I can see that the streetlight draws the viewers eye off to the edge of the picture. I experimented with cropping, but had no room to crop on top or bottom of the image adn wasn't crazy about the more square format that resulted form cropping off the edge only. A little clone work was the alternative I chose. Do you agree that this improves the image.2 commentsEd HodgsonOct 05, 2017

Natural_Landscapes1.jpgNatural Landscapes - What You Should Have Seen4 viewsI was puzzled by the crop comments on this image from Monday night until I played around a little bit and noticed that the program we were using crops images unless directed to full screen display. In this case, it cut off the top of the tree. This leads to the question - " is the tree too high in this frame?" Thanks for your detailed comments Monday and your thoughts on this question.4 commentsEd HodgsonOct 05, 2017

AmericanLady.jpgAmerican Lady Butterfly4 viewsSince it was a topic of some discussion at teh meeting last night, I figured I'd post a couple of images that clearly show the principal visual difference between American Lady and Painted Lady Butterflies. Note especially the underside of the hind wings.Ed HodgsonOct 03, 2017

Monarch2017.jpgS'il Fait Beaux Temps ....10 viewsThis monarch butterfly and bumble bee side by side on my wife's Chareopteris reminded me of the Aesop's fable about the bee and the butterfly they used to try and teach us French in high school. I guess it must have worked a little bit - still there after all those years.Ed HodgsonSep 18, 2017
