Warning - don't look closely, and don't watch the video clip, unless you're OK with seeing a hawk dismembering a squirrel! At Dyke Marsh in Alexandria, VA, we saw a juvenile red-tailed hawk (I think) sitting just above the trail with its recent kill.

Moraine Lake in Alberta, CA, with a 10mm Rokinon lens on a crop sensor Canon T3i. The colors of the lakes were so intense that I just went wild with vibrancy and clarity, but how much is too much? #ImproveMyPhoto

Found out the coolest trick today. Want to check if an egg is hardboiled? Spin it, and then put a finger on it to stop it, and then quickly let go. If it's raw, it'll start spinning again because the liquid inside is still spinning. Physics for the culinary win!

Tails of the City is a wonderful responsible team. It is always such a relief knowing we can leave on a trip, have peace of mind that our cats are being responsibly cared for, and come home to relaxed, healthy pets who are eager but not desperate to see us!

Awesome time out on the water with Eco Tours! We took an evening sail and then a morning kayak tour and loved both. Jeremy was our captain for the sail. Eco Tours has a lovely and comfortable, stable catamaran. When the wind caught the sail we really flew! We got to help with the ropes and raise the sails, and control the rudder most of the time. Jeremy gave us a relaxed tour and also shared a lot of great information about sailing, the local wildlife, and the history of the area. (Do you know what Matansas River is named after?) Plus, we saw two dolphins! Alicia was our kayaking tour guide the next morning. The double kayaks have rudders, which I hadn't used before, and they were really useful. The pace was relaxed. Alicia is a park ranger and had wonderful naturalist information to share. We encountered a manatee, some green sea turtles, and a green heron, all new to me!

We had a wonderful day with Kayak Amelia. The marshes were so much fun to explore. The staff all took a naturalist course so they could help us understand all sorts of details about the wonderful birds, plus things like how the grasses are able to thrive in such salty water. The customer service was excellent. Our kayak tour guides were Mike and Buddy, both great company and full of interesting knowledge. Buddy took a bunch of pictures and they were immediately posted to Kayak Amelia's Facebook, so you can leave your camera in the car and still have a memento. The pace was enough to get a workout, but plenty of chances to rest, watch the birds, and even stop for a swim. They lead you in the direction of the tide and then pick you up with a van, so that made it more relaxed. Plus they have a fantastic location. After the tide went out, from their shore we saw a whole party of shorebirds, including a roseate spoonbill, a couple white pelicans, a cormorant, and a tri-colored heron.
