Broooklyn, A Pitbull/Rottweiler Mix

I wandered to the park at Beachville Road to look for spring blossoms and met Brooklyn (dog) and her Mom, Denise.  I enjoyed photographing Brooklyn on the beach.  She was energetic, sweet, loves her human Mom and loves to play fetch the stick.  She wasn't afraid of the water either.

Osprey in Flight

The osprey pair have been building up the nest and flying around.

       I can just imagine the one bird above thinking "don't hit me" as the other osprey takes off, (a nice storytelling shot).

The Osprey are Arriving!

Yesterday, an osprey showed up on our nest around dusk.  Today, I saw a bird again.  It isn't there now, but they typically wander around a bit before fixing up their chosen nest.  The neighbor's nest was just occupied a few days ago.  Usually, the bigger female arrives first.  Here is a picture of our visiting bird in today's gray weather.

Portraits with Sarita

I had a little portrait session with Sarita last week and quickly learned that a flash makes her close her eyes.  She's my natural  light girl!  She still looks like a puppy, until her ears get long like a proper toy poodle.  Isn't she cute with her little tongue out.
