When You Have Good Light, Find a Subject

I often wonder if it’s better to go after more illusive and “prized” species no matter how good the light may or may not be or if it’s better to work with whatever may be in front of you with good light? There are those species that are just everywhere and you see them and […]

The Hot Bird in Town

Warblers are constantly on the move and that makes for challenging photography. The plus side is it usually doesn’t take much to get a great gesture out of them because they are constantly hanging off of branches in interesting angles. This Bay Breasted Warbler winters in South America and then Summers in Canada. They can […]

From Warbirds to Warblers

It’s really been an interesting month so far and I’m very grateful for having this much work. I was only home for three days after flying with the Texas Flying Legends Museum for the 70th Anniversary of VE Day and that was one heck of a trip, so much so that I’m still working on […]

A New Species For the Files

One of the great joys of working with wildlife is never knowing what might cross my path. Driving Back from Canyon Ferry Lake this past weekend I was busy watching the weather and the clouds in the fading afternoon light. You can check out my post from yesterday to see the great skies. As I […]

One fascinating little Bug

This is one area where I’ve never given much attention too but it’s a really important one so I’m glad there are those out there that spend the time and actually photograph insects. As you can imagine this realm has some pretty good challenges to it. The most obvious being size but others such as […]

Slow and Steady Makes an Image

When I went to Africa I was thinking about two things, the people I would be working with and the critters. I’m often thinking about that experience especially now that it has been several months and certain details are starting to fade. That’s the reality of travel, these little nuisances get lost over time. One […]

Spring Shooting with Black Birds

While it is technically Spring it doesn’t feel that way yet. We had a good snow storm come through over the last couple of days which is great for water levels, as most states west of the rockies need the water, but it also brings along that grey sky. Well I wanted to go out […]

Winter Practice Down at the Ponds

Have you ever had that itch to get out a certain a lens or go to a certain spot no matter how good the results may be? Well this past weekend I had the itch to get out my 600f4 and find something to put in front of it. A small weather snap rolled through […]

He Really wasn’t so Hungry

While not considered one of the big five, the Hippopotamus is still considered one of the most dangerous creatures in Africa. While surprisingly fast for it’s size the hippo’s main strength lies with its shear size. Of course the five inch front teeth on it’s lower jaw make a big difference also. Despite this female […]
