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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Fun Friday: Water Jockeys

Today’s post features a couple of images I captured yesterday at our lake home at the Lake of the Ozarks (Missouri). As fish have been very actively lately, the gulls are also active as they seek out the small morsels awaiting them. As one gull sat on our buoy (watching for fish, without expending the […]

Fun Friday: Can We Bee Friends?

Today’s “Fun Friday” post features an image I captured yesterday in our lake home (Lake of the Ozarks, MO) butterfly garden. As I entered the garden to water the plants, there were butterflies and pollinators everywhere! In today’s post, both a Painted Lady butterfly (not the most photogenic specimen, with it’s tattered wings) and a […]
