Fun Friday: Food Fight on the Prairie

Today’s “Fun Friday” post comes from a recent photo trip to Shawnee Trails Conservation Area, located in southwestern Missouri. During the winters, I frequently visit this Missouri Conservation Area to photograph wintering Short-eared Owls.

2019 Short-eared Owls

Well, I’m back! For those that have wondered about my absence, let me just say that I’ve been through some interesting times lately.

During these often cold and dreary months of winter, there is not a lot of things going on. January 2018 was not very different, except for a couple of photographic projects. I made 3 trips to some […]

Cattle Egret Dispute

Today’s post comes from my recent (February 2018) photo trip to Florida. While kayaking around Bird Island (a rookery near St. Petersburg), I captured a series of images of a couple of Cattle Egrets that were busy in a nesting territorial dispute on the island: During nesting season, you must always be ready for the […]
