Monday, 10:35 AM - As I came up to the pond where I regularly go birding, this gorgeous Great Blue Heron was perched upon a duck breeding box at the far end of the pond. Normally, he is too skittish to sit out on the open pond so close to buildings. I knew he probably wouldn’t sit there long, and if I was patient, I might get a flight shot as he took to the air. My hope was that when this heron left his perch, he’d fly to a nearby pond behind me. So I positioned myself in the shade right in the... continue reading

You never know what you’ll see.After literally hundreds of morning walks by my office, this morning there was something I had never seen before on this pond. At first I thought the splash in the brown murky water was one of the beavers ending a night of tree-felling and heading back to his home. But when the creature surfaced, it had a much longer neck than a Beaver!A Double-crested Cormorant popped up out of the water with a fish in his hooked bill. Since it didn’t immediately notice my... continue reading
You should be at right place at the right time to take such a shot + need an additional hand to create action. In our village these big frogs only appear after heavy rain. So after the rain I found lots of them around a pond. Then I spotted a frog which was in perfect position at pond edge. My friends helped me to make that frog jump. I’m not very good at manual focus so for correct focus I took some shots while it was sitting. I knew that I have only one chance so no room for any mistake. I set... continue reading

Gold Creek Pond is an ADA-accessible paved loop hike around a picturesque mountain pond atop Snoqualmie Pass. It is the perfect hike for small children, who can walk unassisted the whole route, for parents pushing strollers and for people in wheelchairs.

Amid the dry scrublands of Central Oregon lie two engineered wetland oases - Mayfield Pond and Reynolds Pond.The source of water for these man-made reservoirs is the Deschutes River, some 12-20 miles away, via canals and ditches maintained by the Central Oregon Irrigation District.Both lie within the boundaries of the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) and are accessible to the public - for better or worse...Mayfield Pond is about halfway between Bend and Alfalfa, Oregon, accessible only... continue reading
In September 2010 I wrote a blog on how to make a garden wildlife pond, as I had just made one.....here is the blog if you haven't seen it :How to make a garden wildlife pondSo 16 months on, how does it look now?

A strange subject for a stock photography website you may think, and you'd probably be right. But anyway, I decided to combine this garden project with an opportunity to create some different stock photos.So.... a wildlife pond. Basically a garden pond which will be left to attract whatever wildlife decides to take up residence.And how did I start.......................................I dug a hole! This is ~ 2.5m x 1.8m, with a depth of~ 60cm in the middle section to ensure that... continue reading
