I had to get a midshipman to the airport this Saturday morning for an early flight. I was happy to do it, and even happier to be treated to this view of the sunrise as I drove onto the Academy. Simply glorious.

Shoot! I can't believe I didn't get this picture in focus. I dropped my daughter off at the Broadneck football game this evening, and loved the shot of the four tubas and tubists in a row. I quickly pulled into a parking spot and took the picture before they dispersed, but I didn't get the focus right in my haste. So close! Looking sharp, guys! (but hopefully not sounding sharp... or flat...umpahpah... :)

I spied this creature on Deep Creek yesterday afternoon. My best ID is a double-crested cormorant. I believe the light head and neck indicate a juvenile. During mating season, these birds grow a couple of feather tufts on either side of their heads - hence the name double-crested. I love the bright turquoise blue eyes against the orange background.
