    These are stunning. Especially the first two of the heron and his meal!! Love the family of Canadian geese and the lady duck as well!! Will you make these available for cards at some point? I’d like to make another purchase in the next few weeks since I am nearly out of cards already!!

      I wish I could have got the whole bird when he had his fish but I was in the wrong place at the right time. Every time I tried to move it spooked him so I had to settle for a “head shot”. I’ll send you an email or give you a call about the cards. 🙂

  2. Oh Dusty, I’m thinking that snake is a water moccasin/ cottonmouth. (same thing) I’ve seen them before and it looks like the real thing. I’m almost 90% sure. The joint at the tail is a good giveaway. Yeah, you don’t want to mess with them, as they are one of the few that are aggressive, will bite first, and ask questions later instead of just moving off. Have someone double check, but I don’t think this is a black rat snake.

      I appreciate your concern and in fact last year I did check into this quite thoroughly. There are only 2 poisonous snakes in Massachussets: the Northern Copperhead and the Timber Rattler. The northern-most part of the cottonmouth’s (water moccasin) range is Virginia. I recently saw a program on keeping snakes as pets and the petkeeper said the joint in the tail is a way to tell if it’s a male or Female snake. I thought that was pretty interesting.

    Love all the pictures except the snake. YUCK…do not like. Love the family of geese.Great shots as usual SiS.

      LOL There’s an 8 year boy who would probably disagree with you. Snakes are ok. These guys only come out to warm up on the rocks. I was surprised by the goslings. I thought it was still too early. I figured we had another 1-2 weeks. Surprise! 🙂
