Fun Friday: Time With the Kids

This adult prairie dog is busy attending to a couple of pups:   Photographic Equipment Used: Canon 1D Mark 2 body Canon 100-400mm, f/4.5 – f/5.6 […]

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). The Mountain Goats, and particularly the young kids, are always a highlight of every trip I make to Mount Evans. Born in early June, by late summer […]

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 […]

Fun Friday: PhotoBombing the Photographer




Note: Busy trying to capture the Perseid meteors … in my online absence, please enjoy this comical event from 2012.

Fun Friday: Organizational Tip




Today’s “Fun Friday” post comes from a brief stop at Loess Bluffs NWR (formerly called “Squaw Creek NWR”) in northwest Missouri, while on my way home from photographing in the Columbia River Gorge.

Faves of 1Q 2016




Finally, 2016 is behind us and in the books! For me, 2016 was a mixed bag. I had some awesome travels and some great photo opps in the year. But 2016 was also a very rough time; midway through the year, I lost my traveling companion and best friend, my wife of nearly 18 years. […]

Fun Friday: Got Milk?




When visiting the Badlands NP in summer, I always enjoy finding the Bighorn Sheep, particularly the young lambs. At this time of the year, the ewes are trying to wean the lambs from nursing … but the youngs ones find it is easier to nurse than graze! When the ewes won’t allow nursing, the lambs […]
