Nature's Photo Adventures: Florida, March 2011

Something a bit different for me....but this is such an incredible area that I had to share.

Joe Overstreet Road is a 5.5 mile dirt road that terminates at a public boat launch on Lake Kissimmee. This photo was taken right at the boat launch.

The road is bordered by cattle ranches and some sod fields on each side.

We saw an adult bald eagle, eastern meadowlark, hawks, sandhill cranes, snail kites, gators and so much more in the area and I plan to revisit it each year.

Nature's Photo Adventures: Florida, March 2011

I've been in Florida for one week now....and I'm always amazed at how fast the time goes when I'm here. We've already been to Ding Darling, Bunche Beach, Bowman's Beach, CROW, New Pass, Hart's Landing, The Venice Rookery, Celery Fields etc., so we've packed a lot into a week!

Our van has gone into a ditch once - not my fault!, we met with CCFW (thanks Sue & Beverly!!) and watched some incredible sunrises, sunsets and the moon which is closer to earth than it's been in many years.

I could NOT be having more fun.

We spent days in Cape Coral to focus on the Burrowing Owls, I swear their population has gone through a dramatic increase since I was there last year.

This is one of Nelson's Owls, who didn't seem happy that he was getting sprayed with sand because his mate was busy "decorating" and digging her burrow. (see the sand on the left of the photo?) I'll post some info on the Burrowing Owls soon.

Carmen & Ben....your owls are coming in the next few days. Thanks for putting up with us on your property for all of those hours and for the company!!

And a huge shout-out to Wimberley. Too tired now, but I'll explain what happened and how they came through for me in the next few days!

This shot totally makes me think of my dogs. It never fails... as soon as I wash my floors they decide to take a drink and drip all over the place.

Finally done.

Finally done., originally uploaded by Megan Lorenz.

Finding a supplier for mats and packaging was an interesting experience. I went through 4 companies before finding one that had a superior product, consistent results and great customer service. These mats and backing boards are thick, unlike any of the others I tried and I love the black core.

I think I'm all ready now for the show ....

150 Prints Matted/Packaged.
200 Cards printed and packaged.
25 Gallery Wraps ranging in size from 16x20 to 30x40.

All finished.

Waiting until the work is done...

The Merlin does not build a nest, but instead takes over old nests of other raptors or crows.

Smart or just lazy with no morals?

If this isn't an intimidating look...I don't know what is!

Moose On The Move

Moose On The Move, originally uploaded by Megan Lorenz.

Nature's Photo Adventures will be doing a few workshops in Algonquin this summer and fall (details will be on the website soon) which got me in the mood to go through the archives searching for Moose shots. This one is from last September during the rut.

Late September/October is one of my favourite times in Algonquin Provincial Park and photographic opportunities are endless. The forest canopy is at peak color, moose are plentiful and exhibiting interesting behaviour and there's wildlife all around you. If you haven't visited in the fall season, you're missing out!
