Planter is trying out a 55-300 mm telephoto lens without using a tripod, so excuse the imperfections.

We spaced out Earth Day, but celebrate it every day at Planter. We began this spring with the appearance of spring peeper frog eggs and a tree swallow scouting out last year's nest.
Spring Peeper Eggs Tree Swallow, April 2016.

This year a new uninvited guest threatens the nest, possibly a Barred Owl.

We saw one large and two smaller deer grazing in front meadow, but camera was not handy. Either they are frolicking on the road or there is a small herd! And a cardinal is unphased by this chickadee heading for the bird feeder. Our cardinals prefer to feed on the ground, even though the feeder is designed for them.

Hawks check out our meadow daily. . .


Planter's other wildlife photographer is experimenting with a Moultrie Wildlife Web Cam and getting some good shots:
