Cormorants from St Michael’s Manor in St. Mary’s County.  They were very far away, and my focus was off a little, but I liked the reflection...

Glowing Snowy Sunset

While dealing with several minor illnesses in the last two weeks, it's been challenging to take any photos at all.  The house windows are coated with bits of snow debris, creating blurry photos, but I occasionally stuck the camera out the door in the late afternoon to catch some interesting light.
It is obvious that these two photos were taken on 2 different days, before and after the snow began to melt.

A Pair of Bald Eagles

We are fortunate to have some visiting bald eagles in the winter.  We had a pair visit over the weekend.  The enjoy sitting on the osprey nest to look around, occasionally bringing some food.  This time they didn't move around too much, but I can't resist taking their picture anyway.

A Christmas Gift : Orchids

Orchids can be a little bit of spring in the dreary winter weather.  A friend gave us this pretty pink one.  I took a few cell phone photos of it so we could remember the blooms.  I just used a blank wall in my hallway for the plain background.

You may also like my blog from last March, with a lovely blue orchid photographed with a " real"camera.
