Growing Into Adulthood

Today’s post features a couple of images I found while editing some of my older images. I have been fortunate to visit Alaska’s Chilkat River Valley (near Haines, Alaska) a couple of times. During one of my trips, I captured these 2 images of a young adult Bald Eagle. As you can see, it is […]

Your January Eye Test

Today’s post features an image I captured a few years ago, as I photographed Bald Eagles along the Chilkat River in Alaska, during their late season gathering for a late salmon run in the river. When editing this image, I wondered exactly how many eagles were in this photograph, so I took the time to […]

Out of the Blue

Today’s post comes from the now defunct Hallo Bay Bear Camp, located along the Katmai National Park coast, near Kodiak Island in Alaska. I have traveled to this exceeding beautiful location many times over the years … until the camp owner passed and the land went back into the hands of the National Park Service. […]

Midnight Adventure

Today’s image was captured from my cabin deck in Little Tutka Bay, Alaska, in 2007. When this image was captured (around midnight), the sun was just beginning to “set”: Little Tutka Bay is about a 30-minute boat ride from Homer, Alaska. From this location, I spent several trips photographing bald eagles, exploring the low tide […]

Nature’s ‘Glass’

Today’s post features a couple of images I captured near the LeConte Glacier in Alaska, in 2006. I believe one of these was previously published, but the second one is new to my blog. Icebergs are basically chunks of a glacier that break off (“calve”) from the glacier and then float around in the frigid […]

Fun Friday: Angry Bird

Today’s “Fun Friday” post features another “life” bird for me, back in 2012. While photographing at a waterhole in the Rio Grande River Valley of south Texas, this Pyrrhuloxia flew in, while giving the appearance of being another “Angry Bird”: You could call this bird a “Cardinal imposter”, as it resembles a Northern Cardinal in […]

Great Kiskadee

Today’s post features another previously-unpublished image that I captured in 2012, in the Rio Grande River Valley of south Texas. The Great Kiskadee is a quite large flycatcher that is common in the southern Rio Grande River Valley, and extending down into Mexico. During this trip, this was a “life” bird for me. Here is […]

Mirror … Mirror

Today’s post is another, previously unpublished photograph from the Rio Grande River Valley of South Texas. While photographing from a blind at an active watering hole, this Curve-billed Thrasher flew in and immediately adored the reflection in the still waters of the water hole:   Photographic Equipment Used: Canon 7D body Canon 500, f/4 IS […]

Wake-Up Call

Today’s post features a previously unpublished photo of the great spring migration of the Sandhill Cranes, as they stop for food/rest on the Platte River of Nebraska, in 2012: This image was captured early in the morning, from a photo blind on the banks of the Platte River, a short while before they left the […]

No Dirty Bird Here!

Today’s post features a few images from a spring birding photo trip I did in 2012 (I’m currently spending some “Covid Time” reviewing/editing some older images in my database). The Painted Bunting (male shown in these images) is possibly the most colorful bird we have. Found in the southern U.S., these little birds are quite […]
