This is a photograph I took recently at Southport Beach in Fairfield, CT.

I didn't realize it until I loaded this photograph to my computer, but the lighting was such that this Little Egret looked almost translucent. I was stunned by the beauty of this shot.

These are photographs I took recently at the (H)Ousatonic Dam in Derby, CT.

This Great Blue Heron was standing in the water by the rocks at the base of the dam. He blended in so well that I almost didn't see him. After awhile, he walked further along the dam, where I got the first photograph of him. I liked how the sunlight highlighted him and the rocks in that shot.

These are some photographs I took recently at Southport Beach in Fairfield, CT.

This Little Egret sometimes started running through the water, then took brief flight to jump closer to where its prey was. I managed to get one good action shot of that. I liked how the reflection looked in the second photo. He was walking in the third photo.

I wrote a GIMP script to automate my process of reducing my photograph, adding the copyright symbol layer, and adding the copyright notice. That has now made it much easier for me to prepare my photographs for posting to my blog, and it's no longer a tedious time consuming endeavor.
