Lens Artists Challenge – Wildlife Close to Home

We moved into our new home August of this year. The area is known as Currituck County, North Carolina and our town has water on both sides plus we are about 20 minutes from the beaches of the Outer Banks. I am getting to know the area and places to go for pictures of wildlife. Here are a few that I have taken – most of them at our home with the exception of the pelicans.

In the summer, I had a lot of opportunity to photograph dragonflies and butterflies. The ladybug was taken this fall.

To my delight, we have been able to attract hummingbirds and bluebirds to our backyard.

We had one special visitor in our garage – non-poisonous.

This photo was one of those right time, right place ones. We were sitting out back and saw these geese heading in our direction. I waited patiently then snapped away when they went by the moon.

The last photo is from a trip to the beach today. Luckily while I was there, these pelicans came by.

Our neighborhood is surrounded by maritime woods and marshy/swamp areas. There is a bear that lives in the woods and has been sighted by neighbors; I hope to see him someday soon. I’m sure as time goes by, we will see some different animals especially next spring.
