Happy Thanksgiving from the gang

November 10 the tide was high at the south end of Jekyll. There were lots of surf clams and other tasty morsels for the birds. Willets, Red Knots, and Sanderlings all gathered up. Some American Oystercatchers flew in for a while. They all joined in the feast. Plus they took a little time to rest together. Happy Thanksgiving from my gang to yours.

Fall colors

As a child, spring was my favorite season. It was bright colors, pinks, whites and yellows. However, today as a look around I find fall is now my favorite. Look at this red of the Virginia Creeper. Then the golds for the grape vines.
wonderful colors...golds, greens and reds together. Happy Fall

Art show this weekend November 12-13

Just wanted you know that this weekend I will be part of the Georgia Coastal Artist Show. It is at the Glynn Art Building in the village near the light house on St. Simons Island, Georgia.
Come see what I have been working lately.

I have been spending most of my art time sketching lately. So I will have a couple of those to show.
Also I have decided to show three of my small paintings on canvas. It isn't my medium but we must stretch.

Of course, I am a printmaker and I will have a selection of my newest monotypes.

Please drop by and say hello. Let's talk birds and art!

Butterflies & Baccharis

Every season is special on Jekyll. Fall brings us birds, butterflies and dragonflies. The Tree Swallows continue to move through. Now the Baccharis commonly know as ground cell is starting to bloom.

Here is a Gulf Fritillary butterfly on ground cell.You can see this plant all along the causeway. The Monarch butterflies love the frilly flowers.

There is always something happening in nature on Jekyll.

They're Tree Swallows

Every year in October and November the Tree Swallows migrate through Glynn County. This year is no exception. It is utterly fascinating to watch these birds. Yes, they are all Tree Swallows.
