Fun Friday: Where’s Waldo???

Today’s “Fun Friday” post’s images were captured last week during my 2-day visit to the Loess Bluffs NWR, in northwest Missouri. At this time of year, one of the highlights at the refuge is often the number of Snow Geese that lay over at the refuge and feed and rest up for the remainder of […]

Fun Friday: Playing in the Snow

Today’s post comes from Mother Nature.

Hope you’re enjoying this beautiful snow, too! In this next image, you can’t see my home but it’s behind the large clump […]

Fun Friday: Fall’s Peak Colors

Today’s post includes a couple of images I captured yesterday, after returning from a last-minute trip to Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks for some fall photography … more on that later.

Fun Friday: Changes in My Nursery

As I mentioned in a post last week, I have collected several Black Swallowtail butterfly eggs and caterpillars. They are housed in a mesh, indoors “nursery” in my rural Missouri home.

Fun Friday: No Longer an “Empty Nester”

About a week ago, as I was walking past my rural Missouri butterfly garden, I noticed a Black Swallowtail that was busy laying eggs on a parsley plant (host plant for these beautiful butterflies). Yesterday, I closely inspected the plant to see if I could find the eggs … voila, I found about a dozen […]

Fun Friday: “Got Milk?”

While hiking Logan Pass in August, I came upon two Mountain Goat nannies, one with a kid, along the side of a mountain. They were not very active at the time, so I hung around for a little while. When one of the nannies stood up, her kid quickly moved underneath her to nurse: Photographic […]

Fun Friday: Not in Here, BooBoo

“Hey, BooBoo, the pikanik basket’s not in here! Let me know if that pesky ranger shows up!” Those were the words I pictured as I captured this photograph during my recent trip to Glacier NP (northwest Montana). Today’s “Fun Friday” post features an adult Black Bear that was foraging in some mountainside berry bushes, in […]

Fun Friday: Where’s My Readers?

Today’s “Fun Friday” post comes from the Lunch Creek area of Glacier National Park (Montana) during my recent trip. I pulled over at the Lunch Creek parking area so I could check out and photograph the wildflowers and waterfall there. Once I exited the car and headed to the waterfall, I noticed this mature Hoary […]
