GVP Round-Up - #33 to #38


While at Chincoteague NWR in Virginia I saw a number of Oystercatchers, and this pair mated for a few moments north of Tom's Cove. I wish the laughing gull wasn't in the way, but what can you do.

This Great Blue Heron is a vertical of a similar one I'd posted already. Sunrise at Blackwater is basically a lock for something cool, something photogenic, and something that says 'wild' or 'the bay'...

Here's another of the Robin Chick(s) which were still blind and ready to be fed.

This week I heard the awesome news that Naba gave birth to a Lion Cub! I was looking back on some old images and was surprised at just how long Luke and the 2 female lions have been at the zoo. Luke was in January 2007 I think, and the girls were here in December 2006. There was the talk of getting the 3 new cats for a while, and it seemed like one thing or another was delaying it. Now so much time has passed in a flash. Regular zoo goers were hoping to have them all out together "as a pride" for literally years. Then this year it all came together. The cats were introduced, and grouped up and then Luke mated with one of them and now a Cub! I hear that Luke has also now mated with Shera, the other female, too. So! Who knows there could be ANOTHER cub or two on the way.

Finally here's a Red Fox from Bombay Hook in 2009 pouncing in to the grass trying to catch something.
