Went to Okeeheelee hoping that the hummingbirds were present on the firebush plants. At least I can always count on insects. 😉 – Happy thanksgiving everyone!

Leaf Notcher Weevil’s Having a Private Moment

I can’t say that I have witnessed the mating ritual of leaf notchers. I heard hummingbirds in the area and watched them on a nearby plant. Ran, changed lenses, and they never reappeared!

Circle B Bar Reserve – Red Shouldered Hawk

Circle B Bar Reserve, originally uploaded by madcalabrian.

I keep finding more keepers… Here goes another one. The 100-400 is always a little soft when I rely on autofocus and my best results are if I am in full manual (exposure) and manually focusing and not relying on auto focus. It’s just such a pain!

A friend and fellow photographer, Klaus J. Peter, passed away several months ago. I attending his memorial at Circle B Bar Reserve in Lakeland Florida. There were 50+ friends who made it and those who were photographers had a photowalk most of the day. It was an amazing way to celebrate his life.

The Spanish moss at circle b is amazing. Would have been wonderful to spend more time in the early morning and late afternoon to shoot the sunlight funneling thru these trees.

Circle B Bar Reserve – Juvenile bald eagle

We noticed eagles flying throughout the day, but most were out of range to pull off any kind of respectable shot. Toward the days end, when we setup for landscape shots, this juvenile bald eagle was hunting around Lake Hancock.
