Female Red Crossbill. Such a cool looking species. Probably one we don't look for so much!

Hoping Ill get to find some Harlequin Ducks when this COVID-19 is over.

A Fox.

A few springs ago. This Boar was quiet the character!

Do two halves make a whole?

One is not like the other,
I believe this is a Blue Morph Snow Goose.

A few Snow Geese.

Texas Bird Photography Adventure PT. 1

As most of the world is sitting in their homes, watching history be made right before our eyes, I figured it was time to FINALLY get this trip down on paper. If not for the reader, for my own recollection as I move along in years. Bird photography in Texas is as big as the state itself, so I will break the adventure up into manageable blog posts.

Pretty good day of Social Distancing and Recreation.

Snow Goose Migration northbound.

As the weekend approaches, we are faced with new challenges and a new "frontier" of sorts. Our daily lives have become interrupted and changed. Some, for the good, and some for the bad. I know that every challenge is a chance for personal growth. This is one of those times. The outlook we have in our minds will determine how we grow. This Bighorn must not only survive the, rut and the winter; he can be susceptible to disease, he must be wary of predators. He survives. With all our amenities and the human spirit, so will we.

The thing about being out in the wild. You never know what you're going to witness. Patience, Passion, and a little bit of right place, right time can show a person some amazing things. This snake was over 10 feet long. I had no idea it was in the area, and just like that, it emerged out of the shadow, snatched up a house finch and in about 10 minutes it was back in the shadows, meal fully engulfed.

Gatta get those snot sickles.

I liked the way the black and white really made the falling snow pop.

Full Curl Friday.

Fox Friday

Throwback to the fall. Golden colors and bull elk.

There very few things in the outdoor world more exciting than the elk rut.

Probably one of my favorite Mallard shots to date

“I like the mountains because they make me feel small,’ They help me sort out what’s important in life.”― Mark Obmascik

Find that road, take it, ONLY look back every so often; see where you came from, and how far you have come.

Perspective.

#tatankatuesday

Green Jay, South Texas.

Yet another Jay. This time a Woodhouse's Scrub Jay that was found in the hill country of Texas.

Never slowing down, never giving up. Have a good weekend.

#fullcurlfriday

This photo of an Elegant Trogon in Arizona is more than just a photo. It was the start of an adventure. It represents pre-planning, research, study, and more. It takes months to plan for photographing specific bird species. Bar charts, historical data, habitat studies, and more all go into the trips that involve targeted species to photograph. I think that is part of the allure to wildlife and bird photography. It is more than just point and shoot. Yes, that does happen, but when a planning and study all come together and a target is achieved, it is a beautiful thing!

Today I was inspired by Ron Hayes of Wild and Exposed Podcast to re visit a color photo and turn it into a black and white. I would say that this is a more extreme style of editing for me, but I truly liked the way it came out.

Fox!

I liked the light and shadow in this photo.

The weekend is in sight!
This young bighorn sheep hangs out on a ledge.

Sometimes, Wednesday feels like a Monday.

Sometimes, looking for a different composition requires getting low, real low! Best view full screen.

A young Bison trudges along.

I know #mountainMonday is a thing. Winter mountainscapes can be tough to capture.

Is #mallardMonday a thing? A close up Drake!

Future full curl friday!

In some ancient North American mythologies, the coyote is portrayed as the being who secured for humans such necessities as fire and daylight, and as the originator of human arts. After securing these things, he helped spread mischief!

You can never have too many photos of Wood Ducks.

Man, those Wood Ducks look good in the afternoon sun!!!

#waterfowlWednesday

This snow crusted and frosted bison, stands for a few minutes, completely still in the morning sun.

The Trickster, The Common Raven, perched on a snowbank in Yellowstone National Park

Got to get those early morning glow shots!

Tracking down that Valentine's Day love!

Changing gears a bit, as I continue to prep for my next bird photography adventure. Spring Migration along the Pacific NW. I'll Start in Portland, meet up with Zane Curtiss and spend the next few days photographing species up and down the coast, and the forest regions.

Here is an Olive Sparrow from last years trip in Texas.
