How A Bald Eagle “Rob” A Fish
I have witnessed bald eagles fighting over fish many times and usually saw fish being dropping in the water or on the land (for vultures’ benefit) until yesterday when I went back to Conowingo Dam for more eagle photographing. I have to admit when I […]
Conowingo Bald Eagles
For some reasons as it gets closer to Thanksgiving holidays bald eagles start to gather below Conowingo dam in hundreds and so do the nature photographers in hundreds as well. I arrived the place at 7:30 am last Friday and there must be at least […]
Cormorant Caught A Fish ….
While shooting bald eagles below Conowingo Dam last Friday, I noticed a cormorant dived and caught a big fish. After struggling for few minutes to swallow the whole fish, he(she) took off.
Sunset Sky at the White Sands N.M.
This was my last shot of the fantastic sunset sky before I had to rush to my car and drove out of the Monument ground before the gate is closed. Too bad, I wished I had more time to continue shooting until dark or even the […]
I went to Owl Moon Raptor Festival held at Black Hill Regional Park in Montgomery County, Maryland last Sunday. It was sponsored by Owl Moon Raptor Center, a state and federally licensed wildlife rehabilitation center specializing in birds of prey located in Boyds, Maryland. They […]
Snow Geese at Bosque del Apache
In addition to sandhill cranes, the Bosque is also the winter home for thousands and thousands of snow geese. We were lucky to witness their “dawn fly out” from the “Flight Deck” overlook one early and cold morning. The sunrise was spectacular and to see […]

The Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge, fondly known as “The Bosque,” is in New Mexico near the small town of San Antonio, NM, less than an hour and a half from Albuquerque. It was my last stop of the recent 11-day photo tour of […]
White Sands National Monument
White Sands National Monument in Southern New Mexico near the Town of Alamogordo is a truly unique place to see. The fantastic white sands (gypsum), exotic-looking yucca and the shape of sand dunes really present unlimited opportunities to photograph, especially during late afternoon and early morning […]
Bandelier National Monument
In addition to touring Tent Rocks, we also visited Bandelier National Monument near Los Alamos while staying in Santa Fe last week. Like Mesa Verde we visited earlier, Bandelier is also the ruins of ancestral pueblo people. We took the main loop trail to see and […]
Tent Rocks with official name of Kasha Katume (White Cliffs) Tent Rocks National Monument is located between Albuquerque and Santa Fe near Cochiti Pueblo in New Mexico. We visited this park while staying in Santa Fe last week and hiked a 1.2 mile Cave Loop trail […]
The High Road To Taos
It’s a beautiful drive from Santa Fe to Taos: We took a detour to Chimayo village and visit Santuatrio de Chimayo Chapel, built in 1813-1816. We finish our day trip by stopping at Eagle Nest Lake at sunset
