In St. Mary's County the parking lots are full of beautiful flowering trees. The cars in the background usually turn the photos into snapshots, so I just enjoy the flowers with my eye instead of a camera. I tried my best to keep the cars out of these particular photos. I especially liked the parking lot in Callaway where the Redbud trees were everywhere.
As I showed on March 16th, the ospreys are back on their nests. I saw 2 on my way home yesterday along route 5.
Here are a few shots of this year's osprey pair. They generally mate for life and often return to the same location, so I don't know if this is a new pair or not. You may recall that our male osprey died last year, and might have been killed by another bird.
They have already had one argument with the neighboring osprey, according to Jim.
Our last poodle was a sweet senior dog when we started to care for her. As she got slower, we knew we would miss her very much when she left us. I started taking more photos of her. I wish we had lots of puppy pictures, but we couldnt go back in time to get them. Pet photography can create memories that you will never forget. You dont want to miss pictures of their puppyhood, their quirky personalities or their life. My goal is to give you lasting memories of your pet and have a little fun at a photo session at the same time!
