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...

Bald eagles in flight

This past week I spent a fair amount of time making some new products for a little Christmas sale at my church, some mini picture frames and some small colorful lanterns with electric tea lights.  The sale well received.

I took a few interesting pictures of a visiting bald eagle pair in flight that you might enjoy seeing.  A recent wildlife lecture suggested that the best bird flight photos have their wings up.  What do you think?

Longwood Gardens Holiday Display Visit

While in Pennsylvania for Thanksgiving, we spent a lovely day at Longwood Gardens.  We had lunch, watched the children at the miniature G sized trains, sang holiday songs at the sing-a-long, toured the magnificent organ pipes, visited the conservatory, admired the lighted trees and watched the musical colored fountains. Oh, and we visited the gift shop too!

I would definitely recommend a visit this year.
