Working at Home

Working at home during these days of Covid-19 is not a unique situation. But for me, working at home has been a very pleasurable experience lately … it is so exciting, and so much fun to walk out the back door, and photograph wintering Bald Eagles as they fish the lake waters. Over the past […]

Catch of the Day

Today’s post features an image captured during a week of photographing Bald Eagles in the Chilkat River Valley of Alaska, back in 2007. Towards the end of each calendar year, there is a late salmon run in the Chilkat River Valley, just outside Haines, Alaska. Nothing but wonderful photography opportunities at this time! Here is […]

Wood Duck Pair

Today’s post features three images I captured in 2008, at Amarugia Highlands CA (Missouri). Wood Ducks are arguably one of the most colorful ducks in the U.S. Photographing them, along with all their behaviors, has always been a favorite activity for me. In today’s post, I’m featuring a Wood Duck pair, both swimming together and […]

Can You Feel it in the Air?

Today’s post features 3 images I captured along a creek in the Amarugia Highlands Conservation Area (Missouri) a few years ago. In spring, I love to hike and kayak rural creeks and streams. Often, warblers that migrate into the area are so cheerful.  Makes me have “cabin fever” to go back and experience these outings […]

Growing Into Adulthood

Today’s post features a couple of images I found while editing some of my older images. I have been fortunate to visit Alaska’s Chilkat River Valley (near Haines, Alaska) a couple of times. During one of my trips, I captured these 2 images of a young adult Bald Eagle. As you can see, it is […]

Your January Eye Test

Today’s post features an image I captured a few years ago, as I photographed Bald Eagles along the Chilkat River in Alaska, during their late season gathering for a late salmon run in the river. When editing this image, I wondered exactly how many eagles were in this photograph, so I took the time to […]

Sing a Joyful Song!

Today’s post features an image I found from 2006.  While kayaking in Amarugia CA (Missouri), I came upon this happy little Prothonotary Warbler, singing like no tomorrow. I decided to feature this image today as this morning has been a cheerful morning to me … sun up in clear skies at the lake, steam coming […]

Fun Friday: Locked & Loaded

Today’s “Fun Friday” post features a very aware Green Heron. While kayaking in the Amarugia CA (Missouri), I came upon this Green Heron who was perched on a stump in the creek, busy preening. When he saw me, he immediately turned his focus from himself, to me (with me feeling as if he was “locked […]

Ring Around the Collar

Today’s post features a couple of images of the brightly-colored Ring-necked Pheasant males, that have not previously been published here. These beautiful birds are only found in the northern areas of Missouri … these images were captured at Squaw Creek NWR (since, renamed to the Loess Bluffs NWR) in northwest Missouri:     Photographic Equipment […]

Fun Friday: Angry Bird

Today’s “Fun Friday” post features another “life” bird for me, back in 2012. While photographing at a waterhole in the Rio Grande River Valley of south Texas, this Pyrrhuloxia flew in, while giving the appearance of being another “Angry Bird”: You could call this bird a “Cardinal imposter”, as it resembles a Northern Cardinal in […]
