Six Years Ago, Today

With the sound of gunfire seemingly all around my rural Missouri home (firearms deer season opened a few days ago), I’m re-posting a blog post from 6 years ago today … enjoy! This past weekend I drove to central Kansas in hopes of photographing some rare and endangered Whooping Cranes that are migrating to their […]

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: Not in Here, BooBoo

“Hey, BooBoo, the pikanik basket’s not in here! Let me know if that pesky ranger shows up!” Those were the words I pictured as I captured this photograph during my recent trip to Glacier NP (northwest Montana). Today’s “Fun Friday” post features an adult Black Bear that was foraging in some mountainside berry bushes, in […]

Marmotmania

Today, I’m featuring a few more images of an adult Hoary Marmot that I found around the Lunch Creek (Glacier NP, Montana) parking area. These furry mammals are fun to watch! Here are a few of my favorite images of this single adult marmot: And if you missed last Friday’s “Fun Friday” post of this […]

Fun Friday: Where’s My Readers?

Today’s “Fun Friday” post comes from the Lunch Creek area of Glacier National Park (Montana) during my recent trip. I pulled over at the Lunch Creek parking area so I could check out and photograph the wildflowers and waterfall there. Once I exited the car and headed to the waterfall, I noticed this mature Hoary […]

I’m Beary Pleased!

As you may have realized, I have been away from the computer and social media for a couple of weeks. I just returned from a wonderful trip to beautiful Glacier National Park, in northwestern Montana. The main objective I had for this trip was to photograph the Perseids meteor shower over the beautiful landscapes of […]

Fun Fri: Horrible Yet Wonderful

Today’s Fun Friday post features an image I captured yesterday morning, shortly after sunrise, at my rural Missouri home. As I began doing some dreaded housecleaning, my driveway alarm went off. I was sure it was the twin fawns again (I’m seeing them everyday now … in fact, the two are with mom in the […]

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 […]
