Bald Eagle Skills – Revisited




(Note: This post originally published in January 2010). I just returned home from my 2017 Perseids meteor shoot (posts on my trip to follow) and am now busy unloading the truck and preparing my photo equipment for the upcoming total solar eclipse (Monday, August 21), which I’ll shoot just a few miles from my home. […]

A Strange Looking Eagle




I am currently charging up batteries, gathering photo equipment, and planning for capturing the annual Perseids meteors. Thus, I likely won’t have time to be on social media over the next few days, possibly up to a week. I am, however, going back through some of my older posts and preparing them for scheduled, automatic […]

Golden Gem! (Re-post)




(This post originally published in December 2010) On Saturday, I was treated to another “Life” bird! One of my Blog followers and birder friend, Ginny, invited me over to her and her husband Pete’s place to photograph some Golden-crowned Kinglets (Regulus satrapa), which she has recently been seeing in some brushy/wooded areas behind her house. […]

Down, But Not Out!




A few weeks ago, I reported that I was preparing to launch into a new photo project. Well, that project is now complete and I’m about ready to share it with everyone. The project? Two weeks in beautiful Baja, photographing birds, whales and lots of beautiful desert scenery! Although I’ve been home for a little […]

All Dressed Up and Not a Hair … Urr, Feather … Out of Place




(This post originally published in December 2010) I spent 2 1/2 days last week photographing at the Squaw Creek NWR, located in northwest Missouri. The main attraction there were migrating Bald Eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus), Trumpeter Swans (Cygnus buccinator), and Snow Geese (Chen caerulescens). Shortly after we arrived at the refuge, we took a quick tour, […]

Trumpeter Swans in Picturesque Alaska




(This post originally published in December 2010) I recently had a comment from someone on Twitter about seeing Trumpeter Swans a few years ago, in snowy/icy conditions. That got me to thinking … I was able to capture some pretty nice Trumpeter Swan images 2 years ago, when I was in Haines, Alaska shooting bald […]

Fun Friday: Bad Hair Day, Revisited




(This post originally published in October 2010) While going through some old slides the other day, I ran across this image of a baby Northern Cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis) that was taken in my front yard a few years ago. Not sure exactly when it was taken, but I’ve been shooting digitally since 2004, so it […]

The Brown Creeper




(This post is a combination of a couple of past posts) With the appearance of fall conditions and the resulting loss of leaves on the trees, I have found a new “Life” bird … the Brown Creeper (Certhia americana). According to my birding field guides, this bird is commonly found in my area (west-central Missouri) […]

HaHa Tonka State Park

Last week, I spent a few days in south-central Missouri, at a very interesting place … HaHa Tonka State Park. This park is located in the Lake of the Ozarks region and is 3,679 acres in size. The park […]

Tufted Titmouse (Re-post)




(This post originally published in November 2010) After returning home from a road trip around the Missouri Ozarks, I took the kayak out for a venture over the weekend. Very little activity out on the water … the beavers were not to be seen (although I could hear them gnawing on tree limbs inside their […]
