It’s December, and in Alabama it’s still warm (well, when compared to more northern places). Here is a bunch of random, interesting images taken over the past few days.
This is a Red Tailed Hawk that has been flying around lately. Taken with the Sigma 170-500mm lens @500mm.
The crescent moon, with a phenomenon known as earthshine. In the wider angle photo, notice the “tail” part of the constellation Scorpius. Both photos taken with the Sigma 170-500mm, first one @500mm the other @170mm.
This is a meteor from the recent Geminid meteor shower. This one passed through Orion.
This is Blackie, the black Fox Squirrel that has lived in this area since ever since we lived here. (He’s got a nut in his mouth)
This is just an bird that I photographed today. Nice feather coloration. I have no clue what kind he is.
Thanks for looking at this odd assortment of photos!
