I love Eastern Bluebirds! These were in a field on the Triangle Land Conservancy’s Irvin Farm Preserve, and they were absolutely everywhere. 

I’ve created a new site for my photography, that I will be using in addition to this one - check it out below!

So they’re not birds, but I couldn’t help posting these photos of flowers I took over the weekend! It was just after sunset, and I found that if I used flash I could get a completely black background with gorgeous flower colors in the forefront. I was completely obsessed! 

There are more photos on the new site for my photography - check it out below!

Anhingas are simply stunning. I saw this male on my trip to the Everglades National Park last spring, and these are still some of my favorite photos.

It’s a little cold and dreary in North Carolina today, so I’m going to remember the sunny skies and warm water of the Dry Tortugas. These Brown Noddies were my favorite on my trip last March, and they provide such a beautiful contrast to the blue of the ocean.

I was going through photos of my summer trip to Florida and found more pictures of white ibises! They may be common, but they are some of my favorites.

More fall warblers! I saw this female Common Yellowthroat at the Horton Grove Nature Preserve right outside of Durham, NC. I love migration!
