Fun Friday: Who’s On First?




From my front porch, you can easily tell that fall is here. The Ruby-throated Hummingbirds are busy, constantly feeding in preparation for their migration south for the winter. For the past couple of weeks, my feeder has been inundated with hummers. I’ve “counted” (I use that term loosely as they flit about and chase each […]

Fun Friday: ‘The Outburst’




While preparing for my next art show (early October in Lee’s Summit, MO … more info to follow), I began playing with my images I captured of the Perseids meteor shower this past August in the Badlands NP. With the large moon, meteors did not show up nearly as well as when the moon is […]

Fun Friday: Human Watching




Do you ever get that funny feeling you’re being watched? It’s not uncommon for me to be in my kayak and get that feeling. And it’s not that uncommon to find that the “watcher” is a deer, in this instance a White-tailed Deer doe that was intently watching me as I slowly kayaked past her […]

Fun Friday: Got Milk?




When visiting the Badlands NP in summer, I always enjoy finding the Bighorn Sheep, particularly the young lambs. At this time of the year, the ewes are trying to wean the lambs from nursing … but the youngs ones find it is easier to nurse than graze! When the ewes won’t allow nursing, the lambs […]

Fun Friday: Thinking In the Box




Getting most of the paperwork and personal tasks completed following my wife’s sudden and unexpected death, I’m going to start posting more blog posts, starting with this interesting incident that happened the other day. While going through some of my wife’s belongings, I needed a bit more room, so I placed a couple of empty […]

Fun Friday: A Little Camera Shy!




If you’ve been following my blog for a little while, you are probably aware that I have been monitoring a pair of Barn Owls that have taken up residence in a Cass County barn, and possibly beginning to nest in a nest box I built and installed for the landowners. I have a trail cam […]

Fun Friday: Looking for a Snack




Today’s “Fun Friday” post was captured earlier this week, while kayaking a local Missouri Conservation Area. With several species of warblers now in the area, I was photographing Yellow Warblers and Prothonotary Warblers from the kayak. One Prothonotary Warbler was very active, hunting insects/spiders around the trees that are standing in the creek. It was […]

Fun Friday: Wildflower or Weed?




I’m back after a day off … had such a full day on Wednesday that I needed yesterday to catch up and relax! And even then, I managed to get out for a few hours of kayaking a rural waterway near my house; I was fortunate to be able to capture some wonderful images of […]

Fun Friday: Can’t Stay Dry!




From last week’s visit to Prairie State Park (in the nearly constant rain): Getting ready to head out to Shaw Nature Reserve (outside St. Louis, MO).  Checking out the wildflowers, then attending a “Wildflower Seed Collection/Conservation” class.  Back with more posts on Monday :o)

Fun Friday: FOY Clearwing Moth




This past week, while photographing wildflowers in a rainy mist at Prairie State Park, I was hiking through a thick bed of wet clover while making my way towards some Flowering Dogwood trees that were in bloom. While maneuvering the thick clover, I scared up a Clearwing Moth. Being wet and a rainy mist still […]
