I seen a few of these Moths today at the Pink Honeysuckle bush behind my shop. These are very interesting to watch as they actually do resemble Hummingbirds as they hover around!

Winding Stair Gap, Franklin NC

Posted on April 15, 2021 at 5:40 PM

I shot this image this morning on my way to work in Cashiers, NC. This is near Franklin, NC (Winding Stair Gap).

This looks completely different than it did a couple of days ago now that the trees have a lot more leaves on them.

The Green has Finally Returned!

Posted on April 14, 2021 at 2:15 PM

Landscape Shot - Blairsville GA

It's awesome seeing everything turn green again!

This image started out being a 160mb pixel shift image done with the Pentax K1. I normally don't use this feature in this camera unless the wind isn't blowing and everything is perfectly still...which it was eerily still this evening.
