Shimmery glows of soft pink

and gentle hues of blue,

paints the calm at end of day.

Cottonmouth, South Carolina, USA

A Cottonmouth snake sunning itself on some leaves just off the boardwalk in South Carolina. I gave it plenty of room, but still was able to capture this image. This is saying something, since I am definitely not a snake person and usually take off running. I know snakes serve a valuable purpose in the environment, but I don’t  want to be close even to a garter snake. Even though I am a wimp about snakes; when I am in their environment I leave them alone. Still I found him interesting and he was far more interested in working on warming up.

Fact: The cottonmouth is a venomous water-moccasin. However; not all water-moccasins are cottonmouths.

Nikon ISO 900, 1/250th sec., f/6.30, Focal length 220.00mm, no flash.

Photography – Birds

OK enough pictures! I've posed. Time to eat!

(American Cardinal, male. 1/1000sec. f8 600mm, Iso 560.)

Yea, after many years, I’ve updated my camera and added a bigger lens! This is one of my first attempts. I have a pretty big learning curve. Thank you all for letting me share. Thank you for visiting and a huge thank you if you’re a Follower!  –Terre

Photography: Nature

Winter storms have kept us inside, so I’ve put out the winter feeders to help these little creatures weather the recent high winds and deep snow.

All sorts of birds have come, but now have to battle the starlings that recently showed up too. Yes, I know starlings have to eat also, but really! This little nuthatch, though, seems to have the tree all to himself as he walks often upside down, sideways, and then changes directions while creeping and moving all around the limb picking at it. He doesn’t have to battle too much the other birds at the feeders, though he and his mate still joins the black-capped chickadees and tufted titmouse at the feeder. Little lucky birds!

The small (about 5 and 3.4 inches) white-breasted nuthatch are usually found in pairs year round and are common in eastern North America, most often near open forests with oak or pine trees.
