Fishing 101

Today’s post features a sequence of images I captured last Friday, right behind our boat dock at the Lake of the Ozarks (Missouri). With the entire lake freezing over, several dead fish were on the surface of the thin ice. As I was photographing some nearby ducks (upcoming posts), an adult Bald Eagle circled overhead, […]

Fun Friday: Live Eagle Totem

Today’s “Fun Friday” post comes from the “Valley of Eagles”, in Alaska’s Chilkat River Valley, in 2008. This image is a good example of how the wintering bald eagles “can” get along with each other. When not busy getting food, they are often, pretty communal birds, roosting together in trees overnight. But when the morning […]

Working at Home

Working at home during these days of Covid-19 is not a unique situation. But for me, working at home has been a very pleasurable experience lately … it is so exciting, and so much fun to walk out the back door, and photograph wintering Bald Eagles as they fish the lake waters. Over the past […]

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 […]

Today’s post features an image captured during a week of photographing Bald Eagles in the Chilkat River Valley of Alaska, back in 2007. Towards the end of each calendar year, there is a late salmon run in the Chilkat River Valley, just outside Haines, Alaska. Nothing but wonderful photography opportunities at this time! Here is […]

Wood Duck Pair

Today’s post features three images I captured in 2008, at Amarugia Highlands CA (Missouri). Wood Ducks are arguably one of the most colorful ducks in the U.S. Photographing them, along with all their behaviors, has always been a favorite activity for me. In today’s post, I’m featuring a Wood Duck pair, both swimming together and […]

While docked one evening, this wonderful sight brought an end to another wonderful day with lots of whales, and even some black bears! Photographic Equipment Used: Canon 1D Mark 2 body […]
