A trip to the Katy Prairie and another to the Brazos Bend State Park resulted in some quality time trying out my new camera and lenses.
I know the camera has great reviews and the lenses are first-rate, so the problem with the photos lies with the photographer who is still trying to figure out how everything works. But some of the photos turned out, and I invite you to look through them.
Look close at the alligator in the picture to the left and see the little ones on her back. Along with these two, there were four others in the water or mud.
She probably started with a clutch of about 30, but everyone likes a tasty baby gator. Probably 2 to 3 will make it to maturity.
Our trip to the Katy Prairie included a serendipitous tour with the Conservancy's ecological director. One of the things he showed us was a beaver lodge on one of their new ponds. The lodge is small and only about a year old.
I must admit, I didn't even know there were beavers in Texas!
The birds you see below will be up north in just a couple of months. Just keep the faith. Some photos are pretty good, and some are not so much. It's a learning process, and the elderly don't alway learn real fast. I am, as they say, a work in progress. Just click on any of the photos to make it a slide show.
Thanks for visiting. Leave a comment - we enjoy reading them.
