It appears to be a good fishing day…. wish I had my fast camera with me. The weather was chilly and a bit gloomy, but a few surprises have made me a wonderful morning. Egrets are not rare spices or uncommon birds, but snapping a fishing scene was my first. Less than one minute, theContinue reading “A morning of Action”
People are tired of staying home, but not all can easily get out of the house and enjoy the peace of quiet and solitude. But here, a 10-min drive will get you somewhere with greens, colors, wildlife, and nature songs like creek water and bird calls. Came from a densely-populated city, this natural and wildContinue reading “Simply Oregon”
It’s a summer July day. Sun is aggressively scorching the ground. I took a morning walk to skip the heat and now in the shade, being combed by the breeze and listing to the fountain water sound. Oregon summer can be hot but never been intolerable. Temperature ranges from high 50 to low 80 inContinue reading “A Past-Due Post”
Where do I begin… I had my first listing in Oregon.

What are they thinking when their eyes are on you, the photographer?
Red-wing Blackbirds are so common in the wildlife refuges. I usually don’t pay much attention to them. But when they are there in flocks and flying around. I felt I need to do something about it and this something can not be a ‘Just a blackbird’ shot. First and an easy one, press the shutterContinue reading “Simple but Not”
Wet and cold winter linger. Except a few early blooms, colors are sporadic and barely visible. Bird activities seems to usually start in February and that’s where my camera goes. In my continuous pursuit of Western bluebirds, I found them in more places. They are around, but if not for the luck, they are usuallyContinue reading “Birds of the Week”
Nature provides me inspiration. Sunshine brings me energy. Nature was my comfort zone and now I am chasing sunshine. Not only me, birdies are more active when they have more choices of berries and seeds. At least I have not seen a gold finch hanging himself upside down till now. So hard to capture aContinue reading “Sunshine Act”
