The red-winged blackbird sings loud from the marsh ~
The loon’s haunting call echoes through the evening stillness ~
Verdant patterns emerge from soft wet earth~
Snowmelt swells swift running streams~
At least among kids anyway.
I’m pretty excites to announce that my first published photo is hitting the news stands now!
As a kid I used to love reading Ranger Rick Magazine, a publication put out by the National Wildlife Federation. So having one of my photos on the back cover of the February 2014 issue is pretty darn cool, to me anyway.
Though at first glance, when I looked at one of the copies of the magazine they sent me, I thought the photo looked a little weird because they reversed it for use on the back cover. As shot the cardinal is facing the other way.
After a few rounds of patting myself on the back and a few high-fives to self as well, I had to share the news.
Family Time On A New Hampshire Lake
A peaceful family outing on a quiet New Hampshire lake, a pair of common loons, accompanied by their young chick, searches for a meal.
While one parent watches over the chick, the other will dive in search of a fish. Having been successful, the adult will in turn feed it to the young.
With a full belly, it’s time for an easy ride.
