Fresh From the Nursery

Saturday evening, just as the sun was falling below the hilly treeline to the west of my rural Missouri home, I was watching a movie on tv when my driveway monitor sounded off. I walked over to a window and looked to see who would be coming over at this time of evening. What I […]

Holy Cow!

… Sea cow, that is. In my recent absence from publishing nature blog posts, I have been taking a restful “vacation”, traveling around Florida and photographing some of my favorite wading birds, marine mammals and reptiles/amphibians. Now that I’m back home (and in the process of downloading thousands of new images), my first post features […]

A Tribute

I was saddened to hear, just a couple of days ago, of the passing of the Hallo Bay Wilderness Bear Camp owner and Naturalist, Clint Hlebechuk. I have been to the Hallo Bay camp may times and always had a wonderful time and captured thousands of images of the wonderful brown bears of Katmai NP […]

Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

Brrrrrrrr!!! Another cold day in the Heartland! Got up this morning, with much hesitation, with the outside temperatures at -3F. That reminded me of one of my trips to Alaska’s “Valley of Eagles”, located outside Haines, Alaska. So I decided it was very appropriate to go back and post a few of my favorite images […]

Missouri Bison

From about a year ago, I photographed a bison herd in Prairie State Park, a beautiful park in southwest Missouri: Always a lot of enjoyment photographing these large beasts!

Fun Friday:Portable Pin Cushion

Today’s post features some images I captured as I was leaving the Badlands NP during my recent visit there. It was a short time before sunrise and as I drove towards the park entrance, I observed something moving along the ditch on the side of the road. Finding a pullout, I grabbed my camera and […]

Pika Time

It feeds on an assortment of green plants and can often be spotted as it quickly runs between it’s source of plants and it’s den, […]

Cute Little Kids

Today’s post features some of the many, cute Mountain Goat kids that were in a group of goats near the summit of Mount Evans (in the Colorado Rockies). The Mountain Goats, and particularly the young kids, are always a highlight of every trip I make to Mount Evans. Born in early June, by late summer […]

Fun Friday: Between a Rock & Hard Place

Whenever I photograph in the Mount Evans area, I always look forward to being with the mountain goats that call Mount Evans home, and particularly the young kids. Born in June, they are full of play and so much fun to watch. As in past years, I was able to photograph the mountain goats near […]
