I enjoy the beauty of the morning light as it filters into the forest. However, it is difficult to capture the image and feeling with the camera. It is one of those tricky high contrast photographs.

Swallows and their nest
These swallows have their unique nests hanging from the underside of the Highway 64/40 Boone Bridge crossing the Missouri River.

Another shot of the Turkey Vultures
These ugly creatures are scavengers and are frequently seen circling over and around the Boone Bridge that spans the Missouri River from St. Charles County in Chesterfield Valley. For those who are interested, this shot was with the long lens extended to 350mm,ISO 500, f5.6, 1/4000 sec shutter speed.

Turkey Vulture (Cathartes Aura)
On my Saturday morning trek along the Katy Trail, I came upon a group (flock)of Turkey Vultures sunning themselves. They were perched high up in limbs of a tall dead tree standing in the middle of the slough adjacent to the flooding Missouri River.

Rose Bush Twig
Rain drops remaining on the translucent leaves of the rose bush branch with some special color effects added created an interesting photograph.

All week I have been photographing the goings on at the robin's nest near our porch. I spent a lot of time on Saturday to capture this photograph. The late afternoon sunlight made the colors just right. Unfortunately, Sunday morning the nest was empty. We can only assume that a predator found the nest during the night.

I discovered that a robin has her nest in the tree in the front yard. Here is a close up photo of her on the nest taken with the long lens from the porch.
