Between Flights – Update

Last week on WP and Instagram I posted a black and white photo of a fly resting on a flower which I called “Between Flights 2” and, well it got chosen to be in our local newspaper, The Courier-Post, for todays printing.  This is the 4th photo of mine that has been printed in the paper!

A Calvin Klein Model and Shelly

We were stuck in the house yesterday morning as it was raining here in New Jersey.  While cleaning the kitchen I noticed a turtle out the window.  So needless to say I had to photograph it.  Before I go get my camera I showed Arai and he is also on the same page as me and said “we need to take a picture of it”. He is truly becoming a “mini me”.

I was in my PJ’s and slippers and  Arai only had on his boxes and t-shirt.  He hurried up and got his umbrella and his mothers flip-flops and came running outside with me.

Could he be the next model for Calvin Klein?

 

We took loads of pictures of the cute little turtle and Arai decided to name him/her Shelly.

 

Arai worried that Shelly would get hit by a car.  I debated on keeping it as a pet but decided against it.  This is a wild animal and probably would die in a short while if it were to suddenly be confined.  So Shelly is still wild and free and alive.  He was still out this morning.

A Thief has been Captured

I have been filling up the bird feeder almost everyday.  I thought that Arai was playing with it and causing the seeds to spill out.  He kept saying that he did not do it, but I know that he plays in this tree.

I filled the feeder about an hour before this little thief was captured.  Arai called me to tell me that there is a squirrel and the he is eating he seeds.

 

The thief has been captured!

Alert Level Orange

Driving home after work I usually see this herd of deer in a field not far off the road.  As things go I either don’t have my camera or traffic is too busy to stop.  I got luck about 2 weeks ago.  Camera was ready and no traffic.

As soon as I pulled over the adult deers were on high alert, a level Orange based on the Homeland Security System.  They posed long enough for me to get a couple of quick shots and then they were gone.

Bear Crossing 2

Last year I was told about the wild bears that are about an 45 minutes from where we are staying. When I took the pictures all looked great on my camera however, when I went to upload them I lost 90% of the pictures.

So I had to go back again this year to see if we can get lucky again.  Luck was on our side, we saw 3 bears, a cub and 2 adult bears.

Unfortunately 1 of the adult bears was dead. It appeared to have been shot. If you look closely at the adult bear you will see that it appears have been shot.  I notified the Animal Refuge agency the next day.

First Morning of Vacation!!

 

I arrived in OBX (Outer Banks, NC) yesterday afternoon for our annual family vacation.

A tradition that my father and I have is to get up and go to the beach to watch the sunrise.  Back in New Jersey I can never get up this early to go to the shore to see this amazing wonder.
