Colorado Sings the Blues

I’m glad to be back at the computer … been busy with lots of things and have not had internet for a few days. So it’s nice to be able to get back online! Today’s post features a lovely blue wildflower, the Blue Columbine that can be found growing about the wonderful San Juan Mountains […]

Colorful Colorado

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I’ve been visiting with family and friends, and now it’s time to get back to “work”! Today’s post features a couple of colorful landscapes from a trip to Colorado’s San Juan Mountains, captured a few years ago. When entering Colorado, there are several signs that welcome you to “Colorful […]

While driving around the refuge, this Great Blue Heron rookery was observed at the top of a tall pine (?) tree: Photographic Equipment Used: […]

Head in the Clouds

Today’s post features some morning landscape photos I captured in Glacier National Park (Montana) a few years ago.  Made me “homesick” for the mountains as I prepared this blog post! In early morning, at high altitude on the Going-to-the-Sun Road, the landscape can often be quite dramatic:   Once the sun is up and the […]

Fun Friday: Can U C Me Now?

The image from today’s post comes from a visit I had a few years ago to the Venice bird rookery, in Venice, Florida. As you can see, many birds call this rookery home, overnight: Many different species in this single image … primarily, White Ibis are present, but you can also see Great Blue Herons, […]

Framed in Red

Today’s post features a pair of nesting Great Egrets, in brilliant breeding plumage, that I captured a few years ago at the Venice Rookery, in Venice, Florida. The red-berried plant is a Brazilian Pepper. Although quite photogenic, it’s roots are many and can extend for long distances to drink up water, making it an unwanted, […]

Florida’s Swamp Bird

Today’s post features a couple of images I captured a few years ago in the Everglades National Park (Florida). The Anhinga is a fun bird to watch as it “snakes” through the swamp waters, to find/catch fish. The adult male, as shown in these two photos, are especially colorful in their breeding plumage … I […]

When the waters are calm, there can be some rather nice reflections in the river. Black-crowned Night Heron: Great Egret:   Photographic Equipment Used: Canon […]

Blurred Vision

Today’s post features a Wood Stork as it prepares to land in some lush, green vegetation along the Myakka River (Myakka River State Park, Florida) when I visited there a few years ago. I normally don’t like to even attempt “image blurs”, as they are not my thing. However, the low, early morning light made […]
