I spend several weeks in the late spring and in the autumn out in New Jersey where I grew up. Seems I take more photographs here than at home in Ohio. Something I really need to change if I am going to get better and learn more.
Went up to the Barnegat Lighthouse this past Sunday. It was my birthday. The weather was lovely and after a wonderful breakfast we sat by the lighthouse watching people and boats and birds. Walked along the the path past the breeding area there as well. Saw an American Oystercatcher. Never saw one before. Great to get a new bird for my life list on my birthday. Couldn't get a decent picture as I couldn't get close enough and my camera just doesn't zoom enough. I am saving for a better camera.
But, The water was lovely and some egrets and a heron posed very nicely for me. At least for a short while before I got too close and they flew off. lol
