There Be Dragons.....

 I'm loving the AI bird tracking capabilities of the OM System OM-1. works well for Dragonflies, too!

Full Strawberry Moon Eclipse

 Well, Ohio cloud cover made for some difficult shooting conditions, but I did manage to capture a few decent eclipse images. Standing in the yard for 3 hours was no picnic, but worth the effort.

Kirtland's Warbler

 It's always a treat to see a Kirtland's Warbler. These warblers only nest in an area of Michigan and had been on the endangered list for many years. Their population has stabilized, but they still cause a still when they show up on the Magee Marsh boardwalk during migration. 
This male flitted around just off the boardwalk for several hours. I loved catching him diving for a midge.

Kingfisher Fishing

 A quick stop at the CJ Brown Marina gave us great looks at this female Belted Kingfisher fishing and preparing her dinner....

Eagle at Old Reid

 I was driving by Old Reid on my way to the CJ Marina, and saw a familiar shape in the Sycamore near the playgrounds. 
A juvenile Bald Eagle had stopped to survey the area. Looking a bit bedraggled, and not the best light, but eagle is a win any day!
