Maine Fauna

These are some of the animals, insects and birds I saw when I was visiting Maine. I am pretty sure I saw for mere seconds, a Bald Eagle in flight, but could not photograph it. I could not focus the camera that quickly.  I also saw a porpoise, and did get a clear photo, but only of it as it dove underwater. When it surfaced again, it was very far away. So here you will see the animals I did capture, although many were very far away too. Continue reading


Seagulls Got It Made in Maine

The scenery is made for relaxing. Just some images to cool your spirit.

I was a guest of Carolyn and Michael, from Carolyn’s Shade Gardens, to Cliff Island off the scenic coast of Maine.

I just got back in town and have mounds of work that I must get to this coming week.

I hope you are enjoying the Chanticleer series on GWGT, and I will be getting back to posting and visiting shortly. It is a twelve part series and the post Chanticleer Six in Twelve The Ruins is halfway through the series.

The gulls were plentiful, and I was surprised at how many varieties of gulls were present. Many other sea birds were photographed, but I thought I would do a post on gulls in their natural habitat, where food is plentiful and skies are blue.

The cliffs make good nesting grounds for the coastal birds.

The landscape is very colorful and I will show the varying textures of this landscape coming up.

Most days, the skies were vibrant blue, and cloudless, but for the day above, the white clouds decorated the sky.

The blue skies gave way to deep, colorful sunsets. Stay tuned, much to come.
