Unwelcome Visitors to Bird Feeders

I would love to credit the photographers who took these photos, but unfortunately I don't know who they are.  At the same time, I have to share them.  They were posted in an online article that I found while researching bird feeders for my garden. The sub-topic had to do with trying to dissuade unwelcome guests.  I thought these were hilarious, especially the bear!!

Sea Island Aerials

Since the weather and the winter season have not been very conducive to gathering new aerial material, I have been going back through my 2016 folders and pulling out some images that I had not previously spent much time on.  My favorites have to do with the lowcountry barrier islands, particularly at low tide, because the sand bars and tidal action make wonderful patterns in the oceans and creeks.  These are a couple that I found this afternoon.  We live in a most beautiful part of the world.

Foggy Live Oaks Take Two

It has been a little chilly for outdoor activities lately so I spent some time at the computer playing with some images that I took at McLeod Plantation a few days ago.  This is half the fun of photography; taking images in different directions after the fact, depending on your mood or whim.

Nice Oyster Roast Weather

While winter storm Helena is ravishing much of the Carolinas, Virginia, and New England, Charleston has dodged the bullet.  Aside from a couple of brief flurries and some admittedly chilly weather (relatively speaking), we chived right on.  Friends had scheduled their annual New Year's Oyster Roast at their beautiful Johns Island home, and as the day wore on and the clouds cleared out, the way was paved for a perfect afternoon. Happy New Year!
