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.

    Nikon Glass Rules

    Just picked up a Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR Lens for my D7100 and what a fantastic lens. Great lens at a great price. First day in use I got great pictures of birds in the community.

    Red-shouldered hawk

    A first for me was seeing a Red-shouldered hawk yesterday. I saw him fly into a tree from a heavily forested area and landed perfectly in a sunlit area surrounded by old oaks and Spanish moss.

    In 2018 I started taking more pictures of wildlife and I am off to a good start for 2019.A pair of pileated woodpeckers visit the preserve next to my house and I am able to get some great pictures whenever I decide to go out in the morning. If I don't see any birds I can get a beautiful sunrise.

    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.
