So my big hope was to see peregrine falcons off the cliffs of Shortoff on our hike today. They’re nesting up there, and it’s super cool to see them flying over the Gorge. I *thought* I spotted one, but it flew off into the distance, never to be seen again. What I *did* see plenty of were good ol’ turkey vultures. Reliable, majestic, ubiquitous and extremely ecologically important turkey vultures. #shortoff #shortoffmountain #turkeyvulture #cathartesaura #ncwildlife #birdsofinstagram #wildlifeencounters #wildlifephotography #nikond3500 #nikond3500photography #nikonnature #nikonnation #nikkor70_300 #hikingaddict #hikenc #nctrails #nchiking #828isgreat #nc100miles #carrionbirds #scavengers #linvillegorge #linvillegorgewilderness #linvillegorgeous 38 minutes ago by @lando_the_magnificent

Just wanted to say welcome to everyone who’s joined me here on Insta this week. Thanks for being a part of this little (but growing) flock. It’s been really cool to connect with like minded people. By this I mean of course, to meet folks who know what the term “mid to high-canopy dweller” means, lol! I love the fact that there are those out there who can explain the difference between a Cooper’s hawk and a red-shouldered Hawk based on the shape of the spotted feathers on the breast. Better still, I’ve got a ton of respect those of you who are brave enough to ask me for help when you’re stumped with an ID and am thankful to each and every one of my fellow bird-nerds for their insights when I’ve asked for assistance myself. You all are amazing 😉 . . . . #birdnerd #birdsofinsta #birdsofinstagram #ncwildlife #birding #birdwatching #bird #birds #featured_wildlife #ncbirding #ncbirds #ncbirdwatching #canon #canon5ds #redshoulderedhawk #eastcoastbirds #eastcoastbirding #hiking #nchiking #ncoutdoors #ncnature #silvercordeventphotography #silvercordphotodaily #ncwildlifephotographer #naturelovers #birdwatchingnc #northcarolinabirds 2 days ago by @birdwatching_nc
So... I have no idea what this is. Maybe you guys can help me figure it out. I spotted this glow out on the horizon last night from Shortoff. I wish I had had the presence of mind to turn on my peak finder app, but I didn’t. This was off to the right of Lake James from my viewpoint, which puts it in the general Marion/Old Fort ish direction, but I really have no idea how far away it was. This is a 300mm zoom shot, so it was pretty far away. I took advantage of higher ISO and longer exposures to see more detail, so swipe all the way over to the last shot for a general idea of what it looked like to the naked eye. It was definitely the color of fire illuminating low haze, which I’ve seen in person before, but I’ve never seen it on such a large scale or from so far away. There was no discernible flicker, but if it was a large fire I doubt there would be a flicker anyway. Is it some big factory with thousands of sodium lights or something? Whatever it was/is, it was the only source of light that color and concentration on the horizon. I googled to see if there were any active fires, but I couldn’t find anything. At any rate, it was incredibly pretty to photograph. #hikenc #shortoffmountain #linvillegorge #linvillegorgewilderness #mountainstoseatrail #nightlandscapes #nightlandscape #nchiking #nikond3500 #nikonnation #nikond3500photography #nikkor70_300 3 days ago by @lando_the_magnificent

I staked out my spot and waited for the moonrise. A perfect scenario would have been a clear horizon so that I could get a shot of the dim moon against the mountains with landscape features visible in the shot. I was hopeful because last time I viewed the moonrise from here, it looked similarly hazy in the distance, but the moon cut through really clearly. No such luck this time, though. By the time it got above the cloud cover, it was high and bright and therefore apt to wash out against the dark horizon. Not crazy about any of these pictures, but it was still a nice sight in person. 🤷‍♂️ #shortoffmountain #mountainstoseatrail #linvillegorge #linvillegorgeous #gayoutdoors #outsidewithpride #linvillegorgewilderness #hikenc #hikingaddict #hikertrash #nc100miles #nikond3500 #nikond3500photography #ncoutdoors #nchiking #myblueridge #fullbuckmoon #lunarphotography #fullmoonrising #moonrise 3 days ago by @lando_the_magnificent

Went up Shortoff on the MST yesterday evening to just past the Pond with the intention of observing/photographing the full Buck Moon rising over the Catawba Valley on my way back down. Low cloud cover kind of sabotaged that, but I did get some shots of other cool stuff, and I got a good spot of cardio in by pushing myself to make <20 min. miles up the hill in the 90° heat and humidity. Hence the sweat. #shortoffmountain #mountainstoseatrail #linvillegorge #linvillegorgeous #gaybear #gayhiker #scruffygay #beardedcub #instabear #gayoutdoors #outsidewithpride #linvillegorgewilderness #hikenc #hikingaddict #hikertrash #nc100miles #nikond3500 #nikond3500photography #ncoutdoors #nchiking #myblueridge #tablerocknc 3 days ago by @lando_the_magnificent

Mbombay Gaaja by @mbombay_cigars . . . Another great hike with @codicarmack and @mountaingypsies , this time on Shortoff Mountain. We found a trail slightly below the main trail that worked the rock ledges and provided some spectacular vistas you cannot access from the main trail. Find you some trail warriors and get off of the couch! . . . #botl #sotl #cigar #cigars #cigarphotography #cigaroftheday #dailycigar #cigaraficionado #cigarporn #cigarsociety #cigarsnob #cigarboss #mbombay #mbombaygaaja #linvillegorge #shortoffmountain #pisgahnationalforest #nchiking #hikenorthcarolina #hikenc 3 days ago by @prometheus__2003

Here’s a male Summer Tanager that I caught preening in an Oak tree at Jordan Lake in New Hill, NC. Along with fruits and berries, Tanagers are known for eating stinging insects, mainly bees and wasps. (Ouch!) It is not unusual to see one sitting on a limb with a bee in its bill. The bird kills the insect by beating it against a branch, after which the insect’s stinger must be removed, usually by rubbing it off on a branch. They will also tear apart wasp nests to eat the grubs. It’s not unusual to see one catching insects in mid-air, then flying back to a branch to eat their meal. This is the best way to spot these bright red birds, as they otherwise remain high in the trees, like this handsome guy is doing here. Just keep an eye out for a flash of Ruby against the Emerald canopy ;) Photo by @sally_siko . . . . #birdnerd #birdsofinsta #birdsofinstagram #ncwildlife #birding #birdwatching #Birdbehavior #bird #birds #jordanlake #ncbirding #ncbirds #ncbirdwatching #canon #canon5ds #summertanager #tanager #outdoorphotomag #hiking #nchiking #ncoutdoors #ncnature #silvercordeventphotography #silvercordphotodaily #ncwildlifephotographer #birdwatchingnc #northcarolinabirds 3 days ago by @birdwatching_nc

Spied this Tufted Titmouse hiding in the leaves of an enormous Oak tree while camping in Lexington, North Carolina this past weekend. Titmice are usually accompanied by Carolina Chickadees and I thought it was odd that I didn’t see one nearby until a few minutes later I spotted three Chickadee‘s chattering with one another higher up the same tree. 🌿 Mixed flocking behavior has its advantages! Having 20 pairs of eyes to watch out for danger certainly allows individuals the luxury of relaxing a bit to concentrate on feeding vs. worrying about predators. Many songbirds give alarm calls when they see a hawk and it’s been shown that other unrelated species know exactly what those alarm calls mean. I’ve noticed that Nuthatches and Woodpeckers seem less likely to venture out into the open to a bird feeder if they didn’t have Chickadees & Titmice “leading” them, which makes me think that protection from predation may be a very important factor to consider when choosing the crew that these birds hang out with. 🌿 What species of birds traveling in mixed flocks have you observed? Mine are Tufted Titmouse , Carolina Chickadee‘s, Downy Woodpeckers, Nuthatches, Juncos and Cardinals. This behavior is especially noticeable in the winter 🙂 3D Photo by @sally_siko Canon 5DS 200 mm . . . . #birdnerd #birdsofinsta #birdsofinstagram #ncwildlife #birding #birdwatching #Birdbehavior #bird #birds #ncbirding #ncbirds #ncbirdwatching #canon #canon5ds #tuftedtitmouse #birdsin3D #3dphoto #hiking #nchiking #ncoutdoors #ncnature #silvercordeventphotography #silvercordphotodaily #ncwildlifephotographer #naturemagazine #birdwatchingnc #audubon #outdoorphotomag 4 days ago by @birdwatching_nc

Went camping this weekend and grabbed a few bird photos at Jordan Lake Park in New Hill, N.C. and Forest Lake Campground in Lexington N.C. Although they are quite common, Great Blue Herons are still one of my favorite birds to watch around here. They’re quite the impressive sight soaring over the dam. With a wingspan of nearly 6ft, they look positively pterodactyl-like when airborne, haha! 🌿 What’s your favorite “common” bird that still brings a smile to your face whenever you see one? 🌿 3D Photo by @sally_siko Canon 5DS 200mm . . . . #birdnerd #birdsofinsta #birdsofinstagram #ncwildlife #birding #birdwatching #birdingnc #bird #birds #jordanlake #ncbirding #ncbirds #ncbirdwatching #canon #canon5ds #greatblueheron #greatblueheron #birdsin3D #eastcoastbirding #hiking #nchiking #ncoutdoors #ncnature #silvercordeventphotography #silvercordphotodaily #3dphoto #ncwildlifephotographer #naturelovers #birdwatchingnc #northcarolinabirds 5 days ago by @silvercordphotodaily

Another 3D bird photo taken with my Canon 5DS :) So, my day job as an event photographer is pretty cool! I specialize in capturing outdoor weddings which means that I’ve got the opportunity to travel all over North Carolina to spend time with like-minded nature loving couples in gorgeous natural settings. A nice side bonus is that once I finish photographing each wedding, I’ve sometimes got the time to do a little birding at the venues. A win-win in my book! I spotted this Brown Thatcher recently while at the J.C. Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh after photographing a small ceremony in the Klein White Garden. He and his mate were hunting for bugs in the underbrush and I was lucky to catch a glimpse of him when he stepped out into the sunlight for a few seconds. Have you ever noticed that Thrashers have a Mockingbird - like vibe to them. They’ve got a similar shape and a certain fierce look about themselves. This is because they share spots in the Mimidae family, a talented group of mimickers. In fact, the Brown Thrasher boasts the widest repertoire of songs in the U.S. Photo by @sally_siko . . . . #birdnerd #birdsofinsta #birdsofinstagram #ncwildlife #birding #birdwatching #Birdbehavior #bird #birds #yatesmillpark #ncbirding #ncbirds #ncbirdwatching #canon #canon5ds #brownthrasher #birdsin3D #canon5DS #eastcoastbirding #3dphotos #nchiking #ncoutdoors #ncnature #silvercordeventphotography #silvercordphotodaily #ncwildlifephotographer #naturelovers #birdwatchingnc #northcarolinabirds 1 week ago by @birdwatching_nc

Friendship isn’t always about who you’ve known the longest. It’s about who walked into your life and said “I’m here for you”...and proved it. We certainly don’t meet people by accident, they are meant to cross our paths for a reason. Friendship with this girl has helped me grow, kept me grounded, lifted my spirit, and brightened my life...we developed a friendship in nature and the outdoors, which I’m so incredibly grateful for everyday. Happy birthday to a friend who means so much to me....💖💜💙💛🧡💚 1 week ago by @wanderingamongstwild

Early in the morning and I’m out at Jordan Lake watching Ospreys hunting for fish. These raptors are impressive to observe in predator mode. They will soar above the water until they spy their prey, hover for a second or two and then dive straight down like an arrow into the water. Much of the time they appear to be successful, like this one which flew right over my head with a fish in his talons as I stood on top of the dam. 🌿 I’ve noticed that most other hawks and falcons appear to have their talons arranged in a static pattern: three in the front, and one angled towards the back. But ospreys, have a unique configuration that lets them slide their toes back and forth, so they can create a two-and-two configuration. This helps them more firmly grip a slippery fish as they fly through the air. It also seems like they frequently turn the fish to a position parallel to their flying direction, for aerodynamic purposes.

This is our favorite trail on Grandfather Mountain up to McCrae Peak! It seems a bit dangerous (I was freaking out), but as long as you’re cautious it actually isn’t too bad. Nate is definitely more skilled at hiking than I am. I actually twisted my ankle on the way down from this hike and I had to find a walking stick to make it back down 😂 . . . . . . . #hiking #grandfathermountain #linvillenc #mccraepeak #northcarolina #explore #explorenc #hikingnc #nchiking #mountains #blueridgemountains #blueridgeparkway #mountainhiking #travel #travelphotography #mountaineering #mountaineer #travelling #traveler #traveling #travelers #travelguide #travelholic #travelgram 1 week ago by @katenatetravel
A great place to go birdwatching in the Triangle is Bass Lake Park, in Holly Springs N.C. There’s plenty of wildlife here and tons of different bird species to be found in a small area. One of my favorites is the Barn Swallow which builds its cup shaped mud nests in the eves of the visitors center at the lake. I photographed this little one sitting on the railing overlooking the water. Barn Swallows are a common sight here in N.C. swooping over fields and water on the never ending hunt for insects. They will stick around here until late September or early October when they’ll form a flock and then migrate south for the winter.

☀️ Summer Essentials: BUG SPRAY ☀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I swear all I have to do is open the door to let the dogs out and I’ll get at least one bug bite! No joke.. if I go outside without my trusty TerraShield on I’ll come back in with no less than 20 bites. So it’s really important for me to find a bug spray that not only works but also meets my non-toxic standards. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ TerraShield is a blend of naturally repellent essential oils that is safe for the whole family, I even use it on the dogs! It comes in a 15 ml bottle and also this super convenient 30ml spray bottle for easy application and I can just throw it in my purse, back pack or beach bag all summer long! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 100% natural plant matter and absolutely no DEET 🙅🏻‍♀️ Prolonged exposure to DEET has been shown to impair cell function in parts of the brain and it’s made up of extremely toxic chemicals known to be carcinogenic (cause cancer). No thank you.. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This month our TerraShield spray is 10% off! So it’s the perfect time to give it a try!! Who is interested in this #holisticallystanburysummeressential ?? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #aholisticallyinspiredlife #bugspray #insectrepellent #insectrepellentspray #deet #outdoorsy #hikinggear #nchiking #lakelifestyle #beachin #beachfun #campinghacks #campinggear #campingwithkids #campingwithdogs #campingwithfriends #summerjam #holisticmama #summerfeels #summeressentials #summermusthave #momhack #momhacks #kidsafe #petsafe #outaboutnc #welovenc #westernnc #hickorync 1 week ago by @holisticallystanbury
What an amazing day with one of my favorite adventure buddies! We hiked the Company Mill Trail at our local state park. I'm so proud of her! We hiked for 3 hours and according to my watch we went 6.8 miles. I so needed to be in nature as a way to relax. To be out in the middle of the trees and serenity while still being in the city is amazing! And we got to see squirrels, a turtle, and a black snake (which slithered right in front of me). I am so thankful to be able to do this with my children. My regular exercise (at home) helps keep me in shape to keep up with them. I'm not going to let age (45 in case you didn't know 😉) get in the way of adventures. #fitafter40 #hikingwithkids #mybestself #getinshapenow #ilovefoodsomuch #educatorlife #busymomlifestyle #lovetocookandbake #lovetohelpothers #busymom #busymomlife #momoftwo #kidsandschool #gymnasticsmom #adhdmom #momstrong #boymom #girlmom #lovetoread #bookclub #boymom #girlmom #raleighmom #ncmom #nchiking #umsteadstatepark 1 week ago by @fit_tlcteach
