Wanna Go Swimming?




Probably not in this pool! While hiking around Myakka River State Park (Florida) in 2014, I came upon an amazing sight … a small pool of water with what seemed to be hundreds of alligators! Gators appeared everywhere. And interestingly, the wading birds were not too afraid of being in the water with the gators […]

Limpkin




Today’s post comes from my 2014 Florida trip. When I travel to Florida for photographing nature, I always try to find some time to stay in Myakka River State Park for a few days. Besides lots of gators, Myakka River has a wide variety of birds. One such bird is the Limpkin (Aramus guarauna). This […]

Fun Friday: Me, and My Shadow




Today’s Fun Friday post comes from 2014, while photographing in the beautiful Myakka River at Myakka River State Park in Florida. This image was captured late in the afternoon, as sunset was starting to occur. I love photographing the critters on the Myakka River at sunrise and sunset … the river takes on the beautiful […]

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 […]

Fun Friday: The REAL Birder!




During our 2008 Orca photo trip, my great friend Tom, who is an avid birder and great nature photographer, sat on the Delphinus’ bowsprit, with his cute birding hat on, as if daring the dirty birdies to hit the target! I met Tom and his wife Lindsay on my first trip on Delphinus, back in […]

Researcher’s Cove




After some wonderful hours with the Orcas, we stopped at Researcher’s Cove to tour a research station and talk to another whale researcher. With the setup of the cove, we had to anchor a short ways away and hike about a quarter of a mile to reach the station. After anchoring, we boarded our skiff […]

A Howling Good Time




While going through my large volume of images in my library, I came upon some images that brought back a lot of memories. In 2008, I made my first of several trips to Yellowstone National Park in the dead of winter. While most of the park is closed this time of year, road crews work […]

In A Fog




This interesting sunrise, captured through a heavy fog over Amarugia Creek in Amarugia Highlands CA in west-central Missouri, is from a few years ago in late fall: One of the things I like about this image is it’s simplicity. Photographic Equipment Used: Canon 1D Mark 2 body Canon EF 100mm-400mm, f/4.5-f/5.6 IS lens, shot at […]

Nothing to Sneeze At!




Today I’m featuring some Black-tailed Prairie Dogs that I captured in a meadow of Sneezeweed wildflowers, captured in the Wichita Mountains of Oklahoma: I’m hoping to get back down to the Wichita Mountains in 2015. If I make it, these guys will be one of the target species I’ll photograph! Photographic Equipment Used: Canon 1D […]

Fun Friday: “Tag, You’re ‘It’!”




Today’s “Fun Friday” post comes from Hallo Bay, Alaska, during my first trip to photograph the wonderful Brown Bears in 2004. Cubs, especially first-year cubs, are always precious and wonderful to photograph. Their antics always entertain me, such as this pair that was apparently playing the game of “tag”: These cubs were born over the […]
