Heron Roost

Heron Roost, originally uploaded by QuakerVille. The last place you would expect to find a roost for Herons and Storks is the roof of a Seafood restaurant but that’s exactly what we found during our trip to Daytona Beach, Sept 2010. We were driving from the beach nesting area for shore birds in New Symerna…

Daytona Beach 2010

Daytona Beach 2010, originally uploaded by QuakerVille. All around Daytoona Beach I find really neat old photos taken 100 years ago depicting life at that time. The pictures are most often sepia toned with age and some are artist renderings of a bygone era. This shot/rendering depicts Daytona of 2010 but feels like the historic…

Cattle Egret

Cattle Egret, originally uploaded by QuakerVille. I love to watch these Egrets form relations with the cattle they feed with/on. These birds seem to have a symbiotic relationship with whatever type of beast they are around. An amazing sight is to see one riding on top of a Water Buffalo or standing on the back…

Monkey Business

Monkey Business, originally uploaded by QuakerVille. Some days I wake up and feel just like this. This monkey was sitting under his shed on top of the plumbing pipe hiding from the rain. He seemed bored and depressed. All he needs is a camera and a computer and I know he would perk right up….

Cattle Egret on Watch

Cattle Egret on Watch, originally uploaded by QuakerVille. These white birds are so interesting to watch especially when they are around cattle or deer, any grazing beast actually. About the picture,

Zebras in the Rain

Zebras in the Rain, originally uploaded by QuakerVille. Usually you want a nice, clear day when you go out taking pictures. In fact most of the time I check the weather channel, satellites, radar, weather bureau forecast and connect to local internet weather stations just before I go to a shoot. If I suspect that…
