Fun Friday: A Little Camera Shy!




If you’ve been following my blog for a little while, you are probably aware that I have been monitoring a pair of Barn Owls that have taken up residence in a Cass County barn, and possibly beginning to nest in a nest box I built and installed for the landowners. I have a trail cam […]

Fun Friday: The Dance of Joy!




On my last full day along the Platte River, I continued my quest to capture some decent video of the Sandhill Cranes as they danced and jumped about in the cornfields. For the past few mornings, they would be dancing/jumping when I stopped the car on the roadway. But after pulling my camera up, they […]

Sandhill Crane Foraging Videos




In yesterday’s post, I featured a few images of Sandhill Cranes arriving in the cornfields to forage. Today’s post includes a few videos I captured of this activity. Sorry for the somewhat jerky movements … I was shooting handheld, while resting my camera/lens on the car window ledge (staying inside the vehicle to prevent spooking […]

Barney & Mate!




If you’ve followed my blog for a long time, you might recall that I was fortunate to have found a nesting population of Barn Owls (Tyto alba) and photographed the parents with a couple of youngsters (“Barney and Friends”). I might add that barn owls are considered rare and endangered in Missouri. In fact, until […]

Trumpeter Swan Videos




Back in December (2014), I posted several times on Trumpeter Swans that were at the Squaw Creek NWR in northwest Missouri. At that time, I captured a few videos of the swans. However, due to having extremely slow internet at home, I could not upload them for sharing. On my current “Wintering Bald Eagles” photo […]

Hungry As A Horse!




Today I’m featuring a couple more images of the Clouded Crimson Moth caterpillars that are busy feeding on some Gaura wildflowers in my wildflower garden. I’ve also included a short video of one of the caterpillars as he chomped up one of my Gaura plants, that I made with my camera and macro lens. Enjoy! […]

Fun Friday: Don’t Ya Just Hate It Whenever …




… ya get a stick caught in the shrub! Today’s post features a pair of Double-crested Cormorants (Phalacrocorax auritus) nesting at the Venice Rookery (Venice, Florida). While one bird stayed at the nest in-process, the other would fly out, find a suitable stick, return to the nest, and either present it to his/her partner or […]

“Daddy Sing Bass …”




… Mama sing tenor”. I think that’s how an old Johnny Cash/June Carter-Cash song started out. What does that have to do with this post? Really nothing, except for the deep, bass-like sound of the bull alligator! While photographing in the Myakka River State Park area one evening, I was photographing from the north side […]

Romper Room!




On my second trip up the Mount Evans Highway, I came across a wonderful sight … a group of a couple of dozen of Mountain Goats (Oreamnos americanus), and within that large group, there were at least 7 month-old “kids”. And mountain goat kids are just like human kids; they are often busy playing! At […]
