Fun Friday: Hitching a Ride

This Fun Friday post comes from my last trip to the Venice Rookery. While photographing the large variety of birds arriving at, departing from, and nesting at the rookery, I captured this Laughing Gull flying over with a hitchhiker, a frog:

When it Rains, it Showers!

Over the weekend I reviewed and edited the many images I captured last Wednesday night/Thurday morning of the spectacular Geminids meteor shower. I processed 8 images a bit differently than normal, rotating each image (to compensate for the earth’s rotation over time) to show the approximate travel of each individual meteor, from it’s radiant point […]

Fun Friday: Night of Astrology

I hope you had a chance to view the recent Geminids meteor shower (being a Gemini, I was particularly interested in photographing this popular meteor shower), which was outstanding where I live. It was a very long Wednesday for me, but I got to watch and photograph the very best meteor shower I’ve ever seen!! […]

Bird Heaven, Part 1

When I travel in 2018 to photograph in Florida, one of my destinations will likely be the Venice Rookery, where many different species of birds visit and nest. Here are a few images of Great Egrets I captured during my 2014 trip: I still need to research this location, to determine if the recent hurricane […]

Rush Hour!

Missouri Bison

From about a year ago, I photographed a bison herd in Prairie State Park, a beautiful park in southwest Missouri: Always a lot of enjoyment photographing these large beasts!

It’s About That Time!

With temperatures getting colder next week and winter knocking on our door, it’s about time for Bald Eagles and Short-eared Owls to again take residence in Missouri for the winter. In fact, I saw an adult eagle soaring over a field near my home just a week or so ago. And yesterday, a good friend […]

Longing For Summer, Yet?

We really haven’t had a winter, yet. But seeing the bright colors of summer, while recently editing some old images, has already got me thinking of next spring! Just seeing the bright and vivid colors of wildflowers, like this Tall Bellflower that readily grows along the woodline of my rural Missouri home, really makes me […]
