Arachnid Lovers Rejoice!




Caution: Spiders Lie Ahead, in this blog post!!! Here is one of my first blog posts, from 2009. I just had to “dust the cobwebs off” :o) With the recent weather a bit less conducive to getting the kayak (“Rubber Duckie”) out, I have spent some time shooting some Garden Spiders. I currently have 6 […]

Up Close & Personal




Another favorite archived post, from Yellowstone NP in the winter … Having traveled to Yellowstone recently, I felt I had to post some of the obligatory images of bison with snow on their faces … the iconic images a lot of us picture when we hear “Yellowstone in the winter”.

Fun Friday: Master Landscaper




During a kayak trip a few years ago, I was able to watch this busy little Muskrat as he swam by me several times, carrying some green plants he had just pulled up. You would have thought he was doing some major landscaping back at his hut: Actually, he was either bringing back materials for […]

Taking a Break




Here’s a 2011 post I made after a kayak trip at a nearby conservation area. Last week while I was kayaking and watching for warblers, I happened to look up a nearby dead tree and saw this furry little ball, with only 2 little ears showing, soundly sleeping in the fork of the tree: I […]

Yellowstone’s Winter Wonderland




Today’s post includes some more images made along our ride in the snowcoach, from Mammoth Hot Springs to Old Faithful, during the winter of 2011. These images were made near/along the Firehole River, as we neared the Old Faithful area. This area has a lot of thermal pools and geysers in the area and thus […]

Barney & Friends – An Update




A couple of years ago, I was alerted to a nesting pair of Barn Owls, not far from where I live. Being a rarity, I set up a time where I could visit the farm and photograph these endangered birds. Since this post originally published, I have fabricated a nesting box for the owls and […]

Fuzzball




A couple of years ago, a newly-fledged Barred Owl was seen in the rural neighborhood where I live. Here is the post I published with the fuzzy little guy. Sunday afternoon as I was returning home from a photo shoot of some woodland wildflowers, one of my neighbors stopped me on the road, just before […]
