Fun Friday: G-hog Day!

Today’s post features 3 images I captured through my back window, here at my Lake of the Ozarks (Missouri) home. As I worked on a photo studio I am setting up, getting ready for Monarch butterfly photography, I caught some movement out the back window. After seeing the grasses/weeds/wildflowers moving swaying back and forth quite […]

Not Quite a “Monkey on the Back”

Today’s post features an image captured during my recent winter trip to Teton NP (Wyoming). While photographing elk that winter here, we came upon a group of Bighorn Sheep who were busy grazing and slow traveling along the ridge of a mountain range: Did you notice the strange-looking sheep on the right?  A closer look […]

Fun Friday: Love One Another

Today’s post features a common sight in nature, particularly in early spring during mating season. Courtship behavior is often displayed between sexes. Today I’m featuring a pair of Burrowing Owls (from Oklahoma’s Wichita Mountains) and a pair of River Otters (from Amarugia Highlands CA, in west-central Missouri) in my post. Both images were captured early […]

Clowns of the River

Today’s post features some of our “water clowns”, the River Otter. When out photographing waterways, I’m always looking for the elusive river otter to appear. When I am graced with an otter showing up, you can usually count on at least a few antics in the water … and they are so curious. I’ve had […]

Behemoths in the Snowy Landscape

Today’s post features a few of the bison images I captured during my recent trip to Yellowstone NP. It gets quite cold in winter here … the snow can fall to incredible depths in winter here … but the “Behemoths”, or bison remain a fixture within and around the park as they struggle to overcome […]

This area is normally a busy fishing area for the area’s fishermen. In late fall, Gray Whales migrate here for both breeding and […]

Life Under the Sea

Today’s post features a collection of underwater photographs I captured while snorkeling in the Sea of Cortez (Baja, MX) a few years ago. I don’t even have identifications for most of the fish … but I still enjoy pulling these up on my computer and reliving the “Sea of Cortez Experience”! Some of the varied […]

Chilling Duet

With today’s continuing snow and frigid temperatures here in the Missouri Ozarks, I thought this winter scene from a few years ago in Yellowstone NP was very appropriate to feature! While driving the snow-covered roads in the Lamar Valley, we came upon a pair of coyotes who began serenading us with a chilling duet: Our […]

King of the Mountain

Today’s post features one of the most common residents of the Rocky Mountain’s at higher altitudes, the Yellow-bellied Marmot. Here are a few favorite images I captured during one of my trips there: It’s always fun to be around these guys, particularly when you can be with young marmots playing.   Photographic Equipment Used: Canon […]
