No Hurry - No Worry

A Common Snapping Turtle has no natural predators so, why hurry, why worry.  I shot this while laying on my stomach on the tarmac along Thirteen Curves Road in Sussex County Delaware. A man came by in his car with fear in his eyes and asked if I was alright. When I told him what I was doing, he angrily told me to be careful and drove off in a huff.

I went out to the beach today to shoot surfers because of the high winds and waves. While there I also photographed the shorebirds that were hanging around. I enjoyed this scene with the reflection of the gulls in the wet sand.

And it's typically me. Won't fall in line, off doing my own thing, never really taking orders... Oh well, at least I have fun. I took this photograph of these Sanderlings on the beach at Cape Henlopen State Park. while I was out photographing surfers. 

Young Buck
Young Buck

One of the many joys of getting up early and heading out with my camera is the wildlife that is out before the crowds arrive. As I was riding my bike back home from my photoshoot at Gordons Pond I came across this "Young Buck" in the woods of the bike path. It was only 5:33 am so it was very dark . It gave me the advantage of the deer not being too afraid of me but a huge disadvantage in taking a photograph. To do so I cranked up my ISO to a whopping 10159 and was fortunate to capture several frames of this beautiful creature before he felt uncomfortable and headed off away from me.

The Otter
The Otter

During one of our visits to the Suwannee NWR we were lucky enough to come across some river otter playing joyfully together in the water that was puddling on both sides of the road. There was, what looked like, a mother and her three pups. This is a photograph of the mother in a swirl of water. 

Godwit among the Willets

This is another photograph taken during my kayaking adventures in Cedar Key Florida this past winter. The shorebirds there were plentiful and included a multitude of species. These guys would group together on the raised oyster beds of the bay and would hang out until the tidal waters got too deep. You could see pockets of them in many areas of the bay.

Northern Red Bellied Cooter of Sussex County, DE. We took a kayak ride today with friends and we were greeted by numerous turtles that were basking in the sunshine. It was a beautiful day on the water.

Fiddler of the Suwannee

This little crab was fighting mad as I was trying to take it's photograph. There were numerous fiddler crabs crossing our path as we hiked through the Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge. You can see more at RandyRobertsPhotography.com

There's Always That One

And it's typically me. Won't fall in line, off doing my own thing, never really taking orders... Oh well, at least I have fun. I took this photograph of these Sanderlings on the beach at Cape Henlopen State Park. while I was out photographing surfers. 

Young Buck

One of the many joys of getting up early and heading out with my camera is the wildlife that is out before the crowds arrive. As I was riding my bike back home from my photoshoot at Gordons Pond I came across this "Young Buck" in the woods of the bike path. It was only 5:33 am so it was very dark . It gave me the advantage of the deer not being too afraid of me but a huge disadvantage in taking a photograph. To do so I cranked up my ISO to a whopping 10159 and was fortunate to capture several frames of this beautiful creature before he felt uncomfortable and headed off away from me.

The Otter

During one of our visits to the Suwannee NWR we were lucky enough to come across some river otter playing joyfully together in the water that was puddling on both sides of the road. There was, what looked like, a mother and her three pups. This is a photograph of the mother in a swirl of water. 

Godwit among the Willets

This is another photograph taken during my kayaking adventures in Cedar Key Florida this past winter. The shorebirds there were plentiful and included a multitude of species. These guys would group together on the raised oyster beds of the bay and would hang out until the tidal waters got too deep. You could see pockets of them in many areas of the bay.
