Bird Heaven, Part 1




When I travel in 2018 to photograph in Florida, one of my destinations will likely be the Venice Rookery, where many different species of birds visit and nest. Here are a few images of Great Egrets I captured during my 2014 trip: I still need to research this location, to determine if the recent hurricane […]

With temperatures getting colder next week and winter knocking on our door, it’s about time for Bald Eagles and Short-eared Owls to again take residence in Missouri for the winter. In fact, I saw an adult eagle soaring over a field near my home just a week or so ago. And yesterday, a good friend […]

The Last of 2017?




This past week, I stepped out for a week of photographing the Madison County (Iowa) covered bridges in the peak of fall colors. What a wonderful week it was, shooting sunrises and covered bridges surrounded by fall colors, and spending the late nights photographing the stars and Milky Way over the bridges! Had a wonderful […]

Pika Time




Today’s post features one of my favorite subjects to photograph when I travel to the Colorado Rockies. The American Pika is a very small mammal, weighing only about 4 ounces. It feeds on an assortment of green plants and can often be spotted as it quickly runs between it’s source of plants and it’s den, […]

Cute Little Kids




Today’s post features some of the many, cute Mountain Goat kids that were in a group of goats near the summit of Mount Evans (in the Colorado Rockies).

Fun Friday: Between a Rock & Hard Place




Whenever I photograph in the Mount Evans area, I always look forward to being with the mountain goats that call Mount Evans home, and particularly the young kids. Born in June, they are full of play and so much fun to watch. As in past years, I was able to photograph the mountain goats near […]

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 […]
