Tending to the Youngsters

Today’s post features some images I captured over the weekend. The Eastern Bluebird, Missouri’s state bird, is a beautiful bird to watch and photograph. During their nesting season (often up to 3 clutches per season) a lot of opportunities exist to photograph this gem. Here are a few of the images I’ve edited so far […]

The “F” Bird

Today’s post features some more images captured in Mexico’s Sea of Cortez … the Magnificent Frigatebird. With it’s normal northern range limited to the very southern U.S. and northern Mexico coasts and islands, this was a “lifer” for me. As we sailed the Sea of Cortez, we would occasionally see one or more of these […]

Last Friday the weather was frigid cold (single […]

“Low Altitude Flight”

Today’s post features a few more previously unpublished images of wintering Bald Eagles along the Mississippi River, near Davenport, Iowa. While photographing the eagles fishing in the river, the eagles sometimes fly low over the banks of the river, offering the great joy of capturing images of them low and close to where I was […]

Framed in Red

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, […]
