Fun Friday: “Got Milk?”

While hiking Logan Pass in August, I came upon two Mountain Goat nannies, one with a kid, along the side of a mountain. They were not very active at the time, so I hung around for a little while. When one of the nannies stood up, her kid quickly moved underneath her to nurse: Photographic […]

Fun Friday: The Complete Smile

In today’s Fun Friday post, I’m featured a view of the Black Swallowtail caterpillar that you probably don’t see very often. As a photographer, it’s a view that I get all too often, but usually don’t want! While in my friend’s beautiful butterfly garden a couple of days ago, there were three Black Swallowtail caterpillars […]

Update on the Twins

Today’s post features some updated images of the twin White-tailed Deer fawns, along with momma doe, as they foraged in my front yard yesterday morning. Again, I had to shoot through glass and window screen to get these shots, so the quality is not quite what I like. I’d love to be outside and capture […]

A Welcomed Second Chance

If you recall a recent post featuring a very young white-tailed deer fawn, I had an enormous amount of difficulty trying to photograph it as the doe and fawn grazed about my front yard; the lighting was very low, and I had to shoot through a double window and screen. I have been waiting and […]

Fresh From the Nursery

Saturday evening, just as the sun was falling below the hilly treeline to the west of my rural Missouri home, I was watching a movie on tv when my driveway monitor sounded off. I walked over to a window and looked to see who would be coming over at this time of evening. What I […]
