It seems to me, from time to time, that certain critters make themselves available for photographs in waves. For instance, I looked for several years to get close to black guillemots and loons in winter plumage, It didn’t happen. This year, they seem to be every where I look.

The images of these that are shown here were captured at Northeast Harbor the weekend before last. The harbor was calm on a day when the seas were blown rough in high cold winds.

Deb and I found three bucks… of the white-tailed deer variety, at Sand Point earlier during the day’s outing. After a quick walk around Long Pond in Seal Harbor where we met friends Prudence, Austin and Luna, we were cold and ready for a visit to the Thirsty Whale in Bar Harbor.

Later in the week Darling’s Ford parking lot gave up this northern mockingbird. I’ve yet to catch one of these guys in good light, but I keep trying.

I’ve also, attached three images from this past spring (palm warbler, snail, song sparrow) to, perhaps, warm up a cold day.

Thanks for allowing me to share our adventures and photos with you. It’s greatly appreciated.
