Feeling lucky, punk? Go ahead, make my day.

The look on the face and the stance of this tail-less Boat-tailed Grackle reminds me of Detective Harry Callahan's words in the movie Dirty Harry.

Great White Egret preening

Occupying the most sought after branch of the snag, this Great White Egret preened all morning and did not allow any other bird to land on any part of the branch.

Eye to eye

I saw this Anhinga look at its prey in the eye before sending the fish down the gullet. Another curious observation is this bird rubbed the fish against the log she was standing on a few times like she was trying to get the fish's scales off.

Close-up of a flying Great White Egret

This Great White Egret passed so close I thought I wouldn't get a shot.

Monarch on Pickerel Weed flower

I took this picture on the last leg of the boardwalk in Green Cay where hardly anything is at this time of the year. So I was excited to see a Monarch butterfly feeding on the flowers of the Pickerel Weed.

2 Tricolored Herons greeting each other

This is a composite of 2 images of the same bird scratching its neck on the same snag taken a few minutes apart. It looks like they are greeting each other and about to high-5 each other.

Roseate Spoonbill at lift-off

I was taking pictures of this Roseate Spoonbill when it suddenly took-off.

Kermit, the American Tree Frog

I am glad that frogs have no feathers otherwise I wouldn't be able to use Kermit's picture on my Featherless Sunday post. A few of these frogs are found on leaves of the Broadleaf Arrowhead and Pickerel Weeds along the boardwalk at Green Cay in Boynton Beach. They are difficult to spot and are not close enough for macro work.

Female Red-bellied Woodpecker

This female Red-bellied Woodpecker was hiding food for later consumption in the holes in the trunk of a palm tree. She was also quite aggressive as she chased a male that came close to her.

Juvenile Common Gallinule feeding and caring for younger sibling

This behavior of older siblings taking care of the younger ones amazes me. This makes it possible for the Common Gallinule adults to keep on having chicks, maybe 3 to 4  clutches in a season.

Excuse me, is this space taken?

Photography Education Conservation
Introduction

Our Mission is to promote conservation, education, and restoration of wildlife and wild places by encouraging people to experience nature through photography.

It’s simple, really. The advent of the digital camera has spurred a huge revival in photography as a hobby. Many new photographers are inspired by the wonderful images that they have seen of the natural world and would like to try to create similar images. However, it takes more than just a camera to truly represent nature’s beauty. You have to have a certain amount of determination and, most of all, an understanding of the environment itself, in order to capture it in a photograph. That’s what EPS is all about. EPS strives to help and encourage the budding nature photographer to look beyond just taking images and to help preserve the environments that make taking these inspirational photographs possible.
