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. As I drove the 10-mile refuge auto tour route, I came upon a pair of adult Canada Geese with 8 young goslings. […]

A Little Light-headed




Another common bird found at the Quivira NWR earlier this week was the White-fronted Goose (Anser albifrons). Arriving by the “boat-loads”, they settled into the refuge waters as they migrate southward. Here are a few images I captured as one small group of geese arrived: More images from Quivira NWR to follow :o) Photographic Equipment […]

Fun Friday: Careful, or Your Goose Will Get Cooked!




From an earlier kayak outing:   As I kayaked past this nesting Canada Goose (Branta canadensis), whose nest was sitting atop a beaver lodge, I sure got the “evil eye” from Momma Goose. As I picked up my camera and fired off a couple of quick shots, I was envisioning her coming off the nest […]

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 […]
