Two’s Company

Today, I’m featuring another recently converted digital file (from a 35mm slide). After my last post, featuring a female Eastern Collared Lizard, I found and scanned an image of a male and female sunning alongside each other (female on the left), on a lichen-covered rock in the Oklahoma Wichita Mountains, with wildflowers profusely blooming in the background:

This image was captured pre-2004, when I was still shooting 35mm slides, captured during one of my many photography trips to the Oklahoma Wichita Mountains. I recently began converting some of those slides to digital files. It will take some time to convert my many slides to digital, but I will be featuring some of my fond memories of early nature photography with you, as I get them converted.

Subtle in the Sun

Today, I’m featuring another recently converted digital file (from a 35mm slide). This subtly-colored female Eastern Collared Lizard was captured as it sunned on a lichen-covered rock in the Oklahoma Wichita Mountains:

Not long ago, I featured the male Eastern Collared Lizard (Male Eastern Collared Lizard), in case you missed it or want to compare it to this female.

Bad Moon Rising

Today, I’m featuring another recently converted digital file (from a 35mm slide). This beautiful moon was captured rising from behind the mountains of the Bosque del Apache of New Mexico:

While packing my equipment after a full day of photographing wintering sandhill cranes at the Bosque del Apache NWR in New Mexico, I looked around and saw this beautiful moon rising from behind the mountains in the refuge.

Brilliant Color on a Hot, Summer Day

Today, I’m featuring another recently converted digital file (from a 35mm slide). This colorful, male Eastern Collared Lizard was captured as it sunned on a beautiful, lichen-covered rock in the Oklahoma Wichita Mountains:

While the female Eastern Collared Lizard is quite drab in color, the males exhibit the brilliant blue-turquoise-yellow colors that make them stand out.

You Know It’s Winter When …

… you see Bald Eagles sitting peacefully next to other eagles!

Wintering Bald Eagles

This image was captured pre-2004, when I was still shooting 35mm slides, along the Mississippi River near Davenport, Iowa. I recently began converting some of those slides to digital files. It will take some time to convert my many slides to digital, but I am planning on featuring some of my fond memories of early nature photography with you.
