MIscellaneous Wildlife

 June, 2021 - Shot some miscellaneous flowers, birds and moon’s this month. Here’s a selection of images.




















Tide Pools Revisited

LA JOLLA (June, 2021) - I hadn’t been down to the tide pools in a few years. But I had some friends in town staying nearby, so I took a road trip. Although it was mid-day, I realized how much I miss this place. I’m definitely going to head back down soon for some sunset photos.

SoFi Stadium

 INGLEWOOD, Calif. (6/24/21) - Got the opportunity to tour the new home of the Rams and Chargers. It’s now the largest NFL stadium. Very well done and layed out. Here’s a few selections from the tour.









Coyotes

 HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (June, 2021) - Was walking into the Wetlands and right up on the ridge to my left were these two juvenile females. This is an area that you rarely see them. It was awesome because they hung out for photos and then left. Here’s a few from the day.

The Red Fox

 SAN PEDRO, Calif. (May, 2021) - Caught this young Red Fox early in the morning by himself. He was very hungry to the point where he crawled under the fence and looked at me from about 12 feet away. It was raining earlier in the morning, so that's why he looks a little wet. When he realized I didn't have any food for him, he crawled back under the fence and I saw him catch something for breakfast.




More Osprey

 HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (May, 2021) - At my count, there are three baby Osprey this year. It's amazing how quickly they grow. They are almost the size of their mom now.  The sequence below is of the male catching a Midshipman and while trying to deliver it to the nest, two crows chased him for 5 minutes.

A Juvenile Bald Eagle

 HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (April, 2021) - This was a real treat this month. A juvenile Bald Eagle decided to hang out at HB Central Park. Caught some images of him flying and hunting. Just a beautiful sight.










Burrowing Owls

 ONTARIO, Calif. (April, 2021) - This is the second year I've followed these Burrowing Owls. There is a debate going on regarding the field they live in as to whether it will become a FedEx facility? The Audubon Society has been attending local hearings to try and save them. Hopefully, they will be saved. Here are some photos from last weekend.

Summicron 90mm

(March, 2021) - Captured a couple portraits of Tokyo with the Leica Summicron 90mm f/2. I love this lens because it is quick and easy to acquire focus. Since cats move around so much, it's hard to lock manual focus. I think this focal length combined with the maximum aperture makes this lens usable for slow moving subjects. I guess it's one of my go-to cat lenses.
