Some sort of Skipper. My best guess is a Northern Pearl Crescent, or Phyciodes tharos. Let me know if you know!

I am seeing the Osprey daily now. And many time he/she is carrying a fish! These aren't great photos but they are the first ones of the year.

Two Cormorants

Before leaving today for a walk on the trail I saw these Cormorants. On the way out the drive way I saw the Osprey! He's back! I hope he/she is not just passing thru, but I do believe he is back.

Cormorant taking off

I just got my camera back. The auto focus didn't work. It took Circuit City in Valley Forge just over a month to "repair" it. I saw three cormorants together a few days ago. The wood ducks are back. Most of the geese and mallards and heron never left. I see two red tailed hawks together a lot. I have not see the Osprey! Bummer. I hope he/she comes back. The deer ticks are out in force. I got bit a few times it seems. Tiny little bites/bulls eye. So of course I am on antibiotics again!
