With thanks to Laura.


These two are from the same picture, just cropped differently.

Albert had a solo show at Brookside Gardens early in 2007.
There was a show with three of Albert's photos - August 6th to September 1st - at VisArts in Rockville, MD.


Three Chipping Sparrows visited our feeder.

Is It Winter/Is It Spring?

Early April 2007


The Box Elder may be in bloom and leafing out, but winter is not surrendering yet.


The Trout Lily is not too happy with the weather.


The Cut-leaf Toothwort seems to agree.


But the Blue Bells seem fine.


These were all taken along Rock Creek in the boundary bridge area.




This Christmas Fern is ready for Spring.


Albert took a walk near Pennyfield Lock in the afternoon.


And he saw these Dutchman's Breeches.

Some signs of Spring!

Late March 2007


A Song Sparrow among Crocus flowers.


An American Toad among Crocus flowers.


Spring Beauties are in bloom.


Blood Root is also in bloom.


Blue Bells will bloom very soon.


Butterflies like this Eastern Comma are active.


And once again, hurray for Mayapples! These are just emerging.

A few birds:


A Red-winged Blackbird in flight.


A pair of Black Vultures out Albert's window at work.


This shot is grainy, but it still proves we saw the Red-headed Woodpecker.


 

This open pit mine is a short drive from Albert's office in Rockville:


From here you can only see half-way down.


Do you see where the conveyors go into a tunnel near the top right? That is where the first picture above was taken.


Here's the whole group.


There were Red-shouldered Hawks circling and calling.


Here is another shot of a Red-shouldered Hawk.


What is that??


It's the rock grinder. It's made of steel.


Here is a rock sample. Is that Serpentinite?


Here is another rock sample.


The people in this photo are not half-way to the far wall. There is a pond beyond and below them.


We caught a glimpse of the pond on the drive out.
