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 […]

“I See You!”

Today’s post features an image I captured in 2009, while on a 10-day adventure in the Baja Peninsula of Mexico. This image was captured in the Laguna San Ignacio wintering grounds of the Gray Whale. In late fall, gray whales migrate to this refuge to give birth to young whales, and to mate with other […]

How’s the Weather Up There?

Today’s post features another image from one of my Alaska trips (2006). During one of our Alaska, small boat cruises, we were with brown bears at Windfall Harbor.

Fun Fri: Build It – They Will Come

Today’s “Fun Friday” post comes from my recent Florida trip. More specifically, while visiting Myakka River State Park (one of my favorite places to photograph in Florida) I came upon an amusing sight … wild turkey and raccoons, both busy foraging at a couple of the park’s feral hog traps: Feral hogs have been a […]

Fun Friday: Downhill Slalom

Today’s “Fun Friday” post features a Bighorn Sheep ram that was climbing around the slopes of the Badlands, while the rest of the group was grazing on the tall prairie grasses at the bottom. Although “sure footed”, this ram had quite a ride to the bottom of the rock formation, when he was ready to […]

Chippie

Today’s post comes from the Lake of the Ozarks (Missouri), a couple of weeks ago. As I worked in the butterfly garden, this curious little chipmunk sat on the seawall and watched me very intently: Fortunately, I had my camera with me (I always try to have it available when outside … you never know […]

Down From the High Country

Today’s post comes from my recent trip to the Badlands National Park (South Dakota). I was hoping to see some Bighorn Sheep rams, but I wasn’t sure if it was too early for them in the “lower country”. The rams live as a group of rams, away from the ewes and lambs … that is, […]
