Fun Friday: Been Drinking Again?

Even if you haven’t, today’s image may have you thinking you have endulged! While hiking Mount Evans (Colorado), I came upon this very interesting and unusual wildflower. Called Little Pink Elephants, aka Elephant Heads, I found several of these plants (called “herds”) growing along the lower elevation trails. This wildflower grows as a dense, vertical […]

Fun Friday: Carryout for Two, Please

Today’s post features one of the osprey I blogged about yesterday. I didn’t realize it until I edited the images, but discovered that one of the osprey emerged from the lake with two fish in his talons! I had never seen this happen before, so I was really shocked to witness this feat! Here are […]

Fun Friday: Hi Altitude Gardening

Today’s post features a few “snapshots” collected yesterday at our Lake of the Ozarks (MO) home. Looking out of a second-floor bedroom window, I saw this unusual sight: Taking a second look, I realized that one of Bobbie’s squash plants (planted below this downspout, had decided to grow up (inside) the downspout and land in […]

Fun Friday: Baja Hillbillies?

Today’s post comes from my last trip to Baja (Mexico) for some interesting nature photo ops there.  Flying in to Cabo San Lucas, I met up with some friends as we embarked on a 10-day photo tour of the Baja Peninsula. Our first “encounter” was just outside of Cabo, where our van caught up with […]

Fun Friday: Life Begins

Today’s post features some newborn Black-capped Chickadee chicks in a nest. We are busy monitoring a Bluebird trail, here at the Lake of the Ozarks (Missouri). About 2 weeks ago, we opened one of the bluebird boxes to check on activity, and found 4 little Black-capped Chickadee eggs. Black-capped chickadees are one of the “allowable” […]

Fun Friday: Leaving the ‘Big House'”

Today’s post features the second little Canada Goose gosling to leave the “Big House” (aka, nest) on our Lake of the Ozarks (Missouri) boat dock. Struggling to get enough height on his jump, this little gosling finally was successful, although he didn’t get many points for his landing! Free at last!   Photographic Equipment Used: […]

Fun Friday: Forced Eviction

… aka, “Our 2021 Lake Family, Part 2”. Today’s post features our new lake family, on the “big day”! After egg incubation, both parents and the 6 little goslings were ready to leave the nest and explore their new world … however, one problem to overcome … the nest was pretty low in the flower […]

Fun Friday: Hijacked!

Today’s post features a long sequence of images I captured of a mid-air hijacking of a fish, by a Bald Eagle. This sequence was captured a few years ago as wintering bald eagles were fishing in the Mississippi River, near LeClaire, Iowa. Here’s the scenario … An immature Bald Eagle spots a fish in the […]

Fun Friday: Bad Hair Day

Today’s post features an interesting sight I captured in Rocky Mountain NP (Colorado) in 2008. During the fall rut, I was busy photographing the behaviors of the Elk. This bull elk, hormones raging, had just “plowed” up the ground as he was trying to impress some nearby cow elk: Strange, erratic, and even dangerous/unexpected behavior […]

Fun Friday: BC’s ‘Mobile Home’

Today’s “Fun Friday” post features an interesting sight we ran across, during a 2008 Orca Whale adventure along the BC coastline. A tug was pulling a barge with a home resting on a large, flat-bed truck on it. Gives a new meaning to “mobile home”, doesn’t it? Hmmmm, wondering if this comes furnished?   Photographic […]
