Busy Fishing




After a couple of days away from the office, I’m back. I visited Prairie State Park in southwest Missouri and then a short trip to a prairie to search for Short-eared Owls. I found 7 owls, but they were not very photogenic … always seemed to fly on the far side of the prairie! Oh […]

Fun Friday: What? Me?




While looking for a good, Fun Friday post for today, I ran across this interesting Bald Eagle image. He has such a comical look on his face … like he got caught with his hands in the cookie jar! I just love capturing animal behaviors and facial expressions that seem to emulate those of humans! […]

Young Adult or Old Teen?




What do you call a “tweener”? This Bald Eagle was photographed in the Chilkat River Valley of Alaska, a few winters ago. As you can see from his salt-and-pepper head, this bird is in transition from being a juvenile eagle to becoming an adult eagle: Today’s post is unusually short. I conducted a one night […]

Who Said It Never Snows in Heaven!




Some more wintry images from Alaska’s Chilkat River Valley, along the Inside Passage. At such a gorgeous place, it would seem to be Heaven on Earth … then snow hits! It can be awfully cold and snowy conditions can make it difficult to watch all the action, but well worth the effort! In these first […]

Landing Gears Down




As I continue to edit some older images captured in the Chilkat River Valley in 2008, I ran across a sequence of images of an adult Bald Eagle preparing to land in the snow: This sequence was captured along the Chilkat River. As I vividly recall, the temperature that day rose to a sweltering 9F! […]

Snow Bird




Today’s post includes some images not previously published, from a 2008 trip to the Chilkat River Valley, just outside Haines, Alaska, along the Alaska Inside Passage. This trip was to photograph Bald Eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalis) as they foraged among the last of the salmon during the late salmon run in the Chilkat River. This bald […]

Raw Beauty on the Inside Passage




Today’s post comes from November 2008, on a photo trip to the Chilkat River Valley to photograph Bald Eagles. To get to the area, I flew into Juneau, Alaska and then took the Alaska Marine Highway (the state ferry system) to Haines. The ferry ride was an early morning ride that started out about 6:00am […]

Bald Eagles Along the Snowy Chilkat River




While going through some older images (2008), looking for some “birds in snow” images for a painter friend, I came upon some Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) from one of my two trips to the Chilkat River Valley of Alaska. Nestled a few miles outside the town of Haines, this location is a mecca for bald […]

A Look Back at Ketchikan Creek




(Made it back from the weekend art festival and trying to unpack everything, dodging raindrops along the way (we’re forecast to get up to 2″-3″ of rain over the day!), so I’m featuring a post I made in fall 2011, while I try to get my things into the house. Enjoy and I’ll be back […]

Revisiting Blue Ice Fields




(I’m at the Lee’s Summit Art Festival today (the last day of the festival), meeting more wonderful nature-lovers and displaying my artwork. If you live in the Kansas City area, please stop by and say “Hi”. Yesterday, I met many great folks and enjoyed a wonderful weather day (low 60’s, sunny and just a gentlest […]
