Just a little sweetness to start your week: a nest full of Tree Swallows from last Monday.

Monster of the reefs: the Lionfish

This beautiful fish is wonderful to see in the Indonesia, the Philippines, or Australia, but is a devastating invasive species in the Caribbean where it has no natural predator -- nothing to stop its voracious appetite. They have great defenses -- poisonous spines -- and aren't aggressive, but lie in wait for their dinner to swim by. As a result of this invasion, the normal reef fish population in the Caribbean is much reduced.

Divers who get training are allowed to hunt them and some restaurants are starting to add lionfish to the menu. Apparently, the fish breed at 300+ feet depths, so eradicating them is unlikely. They're expected to spread down the Atlantic coast of South America within the next decade.

Bottom line: go diving now, while there is still a variety of fish to see.

This photograph makes me wish I had an aquarium again. When I lived in Rialto California in the 1970s I owned a 40-gallon aquarium, and I specifically chose small colorful fish who swam in miniature schools. I chose natural but clean rock stacked assortments and both plastic and real water plants for them to swim through. This reminds me of how it looked.

A little swan family I spotted at Mather Lake near Sacramento, California, late this afternoon as they were heading into the reeds.

Story
Tagline
Nature photographer, wildlife enthusiast
Introduction
Location: Northern California, near Sacramento

I have loved taking photographs my whole life, but only started using a DSLR camera in 2010.

I'm trying to improve my technique and post processing skills. As part of that effort, my goal is to post at least one photo every day that I have internet access.

That means, that while I enthusiastically view, comment on, and +1 other people's photos, what I post is my own work, mostly of wildlife, flowers, and birds. Taking pics of family and friends is fun, too, but I usually share those privately.

Please feel free to comment on the photos. It helps to know what people like, and I welcome suggestions on how I could make the images better and more appealing.
