Fun Friday: The Pups of the Wichita Mountains




From my recent travels in the Wichita Mountains of Oklahoma, today’s “Fun Friday” post includes some cute Black-tailed Prairie dog pups (Cynomys ludovicianus). I can never stop and photograph these mischievous little guys without getting some laughs. While groups of pups will always leave a smile on my face, I very much enjoy capturing pups […]

Fun Friday: Kids Will Be Kids!




As this post gets published, I am nearly back home in Missouri, after a great weekend art show in Dallas and some wonderful photography along the way back home. It’s always great to get away for some photo opps, but it’s also great to get back home! Especially when I have a brood of barn […]

Get Along Little Doggies




(From a couple of years ago) Today’s post includes a few more Black-tailed Prairie Dogs from the Wichita Mountains prairie dog town, in Oklahoma. The town was so active, it was often difficult to single out a single dog to shoot! But when you could single one out, it usually was good: “Running to Greet […]

From Chili Dog to Hot Dog




Yesterday’s post featured a single, Black-tailed Prairie Dog (Cynomys ludovicianus) that was fluffed up as the early morning winds made the cold air feel bitterly cold (“Plump Little Doggie”). A short while later, the sun began to warm the area (still cold, though!) and today’s post features some photographs of active Black-tailed Prairie Dogs (Cynomys […]

Fun Friday: Plump Little Doggie




While in the Badlands, I came upon one of many prairie dog towns. As the day progressed, and temperatures rose into the 20’s, Black-tailed Prairie Dogs (Cynomys ludovicianus) began to appear. This little guy looks like he is getting plenty to eat! In reality, his coat was bristled out and furnishing him some warmth in […]

So Cute … So Curious!




While editing some images last evening, I found a couple I thought I’d share today. During one of my trips to Oklahoma’s Wichita Mountains, I captured these cute Black-tailed Prairie Dogs (Cynomys ludovicianus). There are several “towns” of these guys on the Wichita Mountains NWR, near Lawton, Oklahoma. I especially love photographing these guys in […]

Fun Friday: Ready or Not, Here I Come!




Keeping with my recent theme of Black-tailed Prairie Dogs, these two pups were very playful, chasing each other around the burrows and taking every opportunity to jump on each other, as this one is about to do!             Online-Photography-Classes.com
