Roebling Bridge (Aqueduct)

The Roebling Bridge (Aqueduct) is the oldest suspension bridge in the United States.  Opened in 1847, it originally carried a canal across the Delaware River, but today carries a small road

Down in the swamp #2

Swamp Sparrow - Another swamp sparrow from yesterday.  Probably the first bird photo I'm really happy how it came out

Down in the swamp #1

One from an early morning in the local wetlands.
 Got up early, knowing low tide was 9:30am or so, figure get in, and in place before 7:00am, try to get some more egret/great blue heron shots. Guess what never showed?

  Did see a green heron on the way in, and some swamp sparrows (both of which I got pics of) and some stuff I didn't (kingfisher, sandpipers etc). Ended up leaving about 9:00am, as the weather started getting UGLY, in fact we had a line of T-storms that generated a tornado come through maybe 45 mins later.

 Photo is of an immature swamp sparrow


Shadow, my really shy guy

No Photo Today

Sorry for no photo today - was off on a hard earned 4 day vacation, and forgot to dig one up for today and tomorrow - I HOPE to post something tomorrow, but I think it might not be a waterfall
