Fun Friday: Hijacked!

Today’s post features a long sequence of images I captured of a mid-air hijacking of a fish, by a Bald Eagle. This sequence was captured a few years ago as wintering bald eagles were fishing in the Mississippi River, near LeClaire, Iowa. Here’s the scenario … An immature Bald Eagle spots a fish in the […]

Revisiting Aerial Antics

Today’s post features a series of images I captured in Clarksville, Missouri, a few years ago (these images were posted several years ago, but upon request I’m re-posting them). During a wintering eagle photography trip on the Mississippi River, this sequence was captured as an adult Bald Eagle caught a fish, but was immediately chased […]

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 […]

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 […]

Catch of the Day

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 […]

Fun Friday: BC’s ‘Mobile Home’

Today’s “Fun Friday” post features an interesting sight we ran across, during a 2008 Orca Whale adventure along the BC coastline. A tug was pulling a barge with a home resting on a large, flat-bed truck on it. Gives a new meaning to “mobile home”, doesn’t it? Hmmmm, wondering if this comes furnished?   Photographic […]

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 […]

Fall Colors in Alaska

Today’s post features a couple of images captured during one of my Alaska trips, when fall colors began to emerge along the highway from Anchorage to Homer, Alaska, in early September 2007. This first image was an unexpected surprise … while traveling on the highway, I rounded a corner and this beautiful, mountain scene unfolded […]
