Adventures of a Wildlife Photographer – "24"

October 7, 2014

By the time you read this fall will have begun. Today I noticed the leaves were starting to change, with many already on the ground. This colorful season is a bonus for any nature photographer with scenic being at the top of the list. I like to combine any wildlife I might encounter with a colorful background, which can be done rather easily at this time of the year. It all breaks down to being at the right place at the right time, and of course, having subjects to shoot! I always view fall as a slow time in nature photography, but I know I shouldn’t do that.

October 6, 2014

MT. JEWETT – The Mt. Jewett Borough Council may donate borough property for a new Senior Center.

The Old Kettle Restaurant and the Baumler Building once stood on the vacant site. They have been demolished with funds under the federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program.
Gay DeGolier, director of the CDBG program for the McKean County Redevelopment and Housing Authority, said in a letter that the borough could donate the site for a new Senior Center.

Visitor center continues to improve elk viewing experience

October 6, 2014

BENEZETTE – Despite the gloomy weather and increasing threat of rain late Monday afternoon, a group of over a dozen individuals could be seen gathered at one of the viewing areas located at the end of one of the walking trails at the Elk Country Visitor Center around 4:30 p.m. A few cow elk were out in the field adjacent to the center, and the location where they had decided to graze put them in close enough proximity to the viewing area that visitors gathered there to take a few photos.
The experience may be common enough now, but only a handful of years ago it was not even possible.
