Nature Photography

It was nice weather in the last couple weeks of March. Spring is finally here and lots of great opportunity for outdoor photography.


Even though I pass by that area almost every other week, this is actually my first time checking out Richmond Nature Park. There are short trails that allows people to walk along as well as a couple of bird-feeding areas. Sometimes we can see hummingbirds near the Nature House. Those birds move so quickly that it is hard to capture a descent shot. There are lots of other birds around the park. Here are a few of my photos from my visit.

Douglas Squirrel

Spotted Towhee

Hairy Woodpecker

Black-capped Chickadee in flight

Song Sparrow
(There's also a similar kind called the Fox Sparrow, which is just slightly different)

There was also a reptile show. My son had a great time touching and holding the snakes.


It was a nice view of the lake. The area is a wildlife sanctuary where birdwatchers can spot different breeds of ducks geese, great blue herons, kingfishers, eagles, and even rarer birds. The geese were quite friendly that they actually would come up to you for food.
