iNaturalist Feed - BhagaVideo

Many of the photographs that I have taken over the years I share on It gives me a chance to share what I see in nature (plants and wildlife) with other nature lovers, and learn more about the natural world. It is also a great resource to help me identify what I took a picture of! Not sure what you have, you can request other members to help you identify what is in your picture.

    Slow Year For Nature Photography

    Been busy working long days for several months so I haven't done much in nature photography. Still taking a lot of pictures when I can, but more around the house and with friends. I hope to do more nature photography in 2015.

    Backyard Tree

    Had to cut down a backyard tree today. It was getting more and more dead branches. The birds loved the tree and I had a few feeders hanging from the limbs over the years. Two big trees remain so they still have a place to go.

    Observations Updated

    I went through all my observations this morning and removed all Flickr photo links. Still had a couple remaining. I updated my Flickr photos from time to time which breaks the links. Mostly changing keywords or captions. Everything moved to Picasa now.

    Decided to put on my new lens and see what I could find in the backyard. Saw a bird moving around in one of the trees and zoomed in to see a woodpecker. Never know what you are going to find!

    Just went through all my pictures from 2008 and I only had 2 pictures of wildlife (birds) and they were junk. I don't know what was going on in 2008 that I didn't take any wildlife pics or even flowers! Well, there are the Koi pics from a pond, but that hardly qualifies. I must have been focused on my Kruger Park trip and searching out a better camera.

    New Birdfeeder Pictures

    Took a few more pictures of birds today with my NEX-6. Just got done reloading all the feeders tonight and added some water to the heated birdbath. Watch the action again tomorrow!

    I got a little tired of seeing "picture not available" here on iNaturalist from my Flickr pictures so I switched them to Picasa. No clue why it does that, but from now on I am putting all my iNaturalist pics on Picasa. Feed

    Black Kite


    I heard the sound of a hawk early morning while I was still in bed on the 16th floor of the Westin Hotel in Hyderabad. Upon opening the curtains half an hour later there was the hawk on my window ledge eating a rat. Not an easy shot to get and had to move slow has the hawk was only a few feet away from me.

    Saw this butterfly near a pond in Parma, Ohio.
    Not sure what that little fellow is on the bottom left. Looks like a bush cricket

    The trees had about a dozen of these birds in them. The look similar to a goldfinch.
