Fun with Frogs

Join me to spend a morning photographing these interesting and silly critters in and around a pond at Palmyra Cove Nature Park.  There is one particular pond aptly named "Bullfrog Pond" that contains hundreds of frogs of all sizes and a few species as well.  With some patience we will get a chance to photograph them surfacing in the water as well as crawling around on the shoreline.  More info...

Black Skimmers in Flight

One of the most graceful flying and interesting shorebirds in New Jersey in my opinion is the Black Skimmer. Watching these birds fly along as they drag their bill in the water is an incredible thing to witness. Come join me in a location where we will watch many of them fly along as they try to catch fish or even just take a drink as they fly over a small calm body of water.

Piping Plovers

Spend a morning along the central New Jersey coast photographing the adorable Piping Plover. We will be attempting to time our visit to coincide with the hatching of the chicks but this cannot be guaranteed. You will definitely see adult Piping Plovers which are still a blast to photograph but hopefully the tiny chicks will be running all around you as well!
