Thanksgiving Blessings, Revisited

I posted this image 2 years ago, for Thanksgiving, and I think it is probably still appropriate today. I will be spending the day with family on my side … my Dad, brother, 2 daughters (and husband, and boyfriend), and 5 grandchildren.  And in a few days, we’ll repeat this scene with family on my […]

Fun Friday: Two Heads Are Better Than One

  Immediately after launching the kayak into the early morning fog, this pair of Canada Geese (Branta canadensis) began honking at me. At first glance, it appeared as if a 2-headed goose was swimming around in the fog!       Online-Photography-Classes.com

Beautiful Blast Off

Last Friday morning, I was able to take my first kayak trip of 2012. The main thing I saw was a rather large group of Canada Geese (Branta canadensis). I arrived at the area about 35 minutes before sunrise, quickly unloaded the kayak and began getting into place as the colors were starting to develop […]

Take a Gander …

at the goose and the gander. Not surprising, one of the most abundant birds we found at Eagle Bluffs CA (central MO) this past weekend was the Canada Goose (Branta canadensis). Considering our unusually warm and mild winter (except for last weekend!), I usually see small groups of the geese anytime I drive away from […]

Love that Fog!

One morning last week, I got to experience a great kayak outing in some pretty dense fog. I love to photograph in fog … I love the mystical feeling it can bring to otherwise “normal” photos. During this kayak outing, I had a couple dozen Canada Geese (Branta canadensis) on the water and was able to grab […]

Fun Friday “Well Cook My Goose!”

Last week I was kayaking at one of my favorite places, just after sunrise. The environment was very nice … cool, few clouds, and lots of beautiful fog! I’ll show some of the fog images soon, but today’s Fun Friday post deals with another subject that morning … a pair of Canada Geese (Branta canadensis). After […]

Fun Friday: Yellow Lint Balls

Ahh, another glorious Friday and … time for another Fun Friday! Yesterday I made my first kayak trip in over a week! Because of all the cold and wet Missouri weather we’ve had lately, it just hasn’t been conducive to kayaking with photo equipment, but yesterday was the day. It was a bit windy, but […]

Almost Goosed … in a Kayak

While kayaking the other day, I came across a pair of Canada Geese (Branta canadensis). Now this is not unusual at the location I was kayaking; I often run across a pair or two at the end of my kayak route. But this instance was a bit different. As I approached the geese, they were located […]
