This year after my husband retired, we bought an old RV camper and took to the hills with our cameras to see the beauty of our wonderful United States close up. A two-week trip to Massachusetts and Maine yielded thousands of pictures of birds, old friendships being renewed, and several different camping experiences. Our favorite […]
The same misty morning as my last post, Bald Eagles on a Foggy Morning, I encountered a beautiful osprey on the lake. I zigzagged over to him to get a closer look, then when he was ready to take off, he came towards me rather than away like the Bald Eagles do. I loved the […]
