Here’s my submission to Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Large Subjects.
This weekend I tried to capture the many colors of fall, from tree leaves to cranberries. I was surprised at their vibrancy and thought I should submit another entry to Cee’s challenge.
For this last photo, I went back to cranberry bogs near Chatsworth, NJ. No one was working on Sunday, and the cranberries floated on the water, rocking up and down as a cool breeze blew.
Late, but nevertheless this is my entry for Cee’s challenge.
I saw this Blue Heron looking a little bit envious of a cormorant who had just come up for air after diving in the water, with a fish firmly held in its bill:
For this challenge, all I can think of is a field of sunflowers I saw last month on my way to and from work. I took the following shot as the brilliant morning sun illuminated the flowers and turned them to gold.
For this challenge, I am submitting a photo I took today of a Semipalmated Plover at the Edwin B. Forsythe Wildlife Refuge. This is one of the cutest birds with a large head and big eyes. It is found mainly around sandy beaches. They are hard to see because their colors blend in well with their environment. I heard this bird melodious call first, then I turned toward the sound and saw it.
I had wrongly identified this bird as a Piping Plover, which is an endangered species. The Semipalmated Plover is not endangered, and is said to be doing well and increasing in population.
