His Next Move
Captured this image from a distance as this male Cardinal was a little skittish on a cold April afternoon. He certainly kept an eye on Gracie and I as he planned his next move if we got too close.
Sticking the Landing
Osprey returning home after venturing out earlier in the day.
A black and white image of an Osprey with the evening meal secured, making his way back to the nest.
A few trail walkers seemed to disturb this guy and he simply relocated a little further down the shoreline.
Tucked Away 2
Blue Heron moving slowly thru the water at Lake Katherine.
This Blue Heron was sticking to the shoreline at Lake Katherine today.
Colorful Sunrise at the Refuge
A view of Saturday's sunrise at Wolfe Wildlife Refuge in Oak Lawn.
Ospreys Return 4
Osprey flying directly overhead yesterday afternoon.
Ospreys Return 3
Another view of one of the Ospreys. So glad they are back. I did get some images earlier in the week, with one of them perched in a tree with a fish, but the lighting was just too low for a really good image.
Ospreys Return 2
Another view of one of the Ospreys and this one did not seem to like me hanging around the nest area.
I am a scuba instructor currently working on a program to teach scuba to our disabled veterans here in the Chicago area.
Also our Foundation does all it can to promote scuba in the Midwest.
