    Birds Three Guys and a Gal

    Six male Hooded Mergansers and one female were having fun a couple of days ago playing the "mating game." This particular shot shows just three males escorting the gal (the other three were out of camera range) and clearly they were enjoying themselves. So was she, as evidenced by the glint in...

    Animals The curious Pika

    While hiking out on Mt Rainier earlier this year, I had the most amazing encounter yet with one of the area's Pika. We were trekking along a scree slope when we started hearing the distinct, sharp squeaks that indicate these little puff balls are around; so I stopped walking and began scanning...

    Critique Wanted Hi key processing

    I seem to have become obsessed with Hi Key images. While many are intentionally over exposed by 2 or 3 stops when being taken, I have also been able to adapt others. Here the distracting fore and backgrounds have been selected and "all sliders set to max" to blow out all apart from the elephant...

    Animals Show "Sheep"

    Couldnt find any treads dealing with collected sheeps, so thought I should put one up, starting with this one: Autumn is upon us, and up here in Norway that means that the sheep that is put out in the "wild" to roam in Spring, is collected up to be either kept over the winter or is off to the...

    Birds The Fisher

    Didn’t want to swamp the show birds thread with a ton of photos in a single post, but these all belong together. I watched for awhile today as a GBH skillfully fished time and time again, coming up with a fresh fish all but once.

    Animals It's beginning to look a lot like...Thanksgiving! Show your turkeys!

    There seems to be no dedicated turkey thread so I thought...why not (something something Dayton Allen)? Check out these rude snoods! 😺 I giggle at this one every time, because I keep thinking of it in one of those Revolutionary War 3-cornered hats with a musket by its side:

    Animals Goat Day Afternoon

    So last Friday I spent the afternoon with some of the fine folks at Integrazers, who have been helping to do both weed abatement and fire mitigation here in California for years by leasing their herds of goats and sheep to landowners, industrial parks, and even neighborhood HOAs. Cue cuteness...

    Animals "Wild animals in the wild"

    Even though I see them every single day I just never tire of roos (kangaroos). Amazingly they say the longer and higher they jump, the less energy they use. Astounding creatures. I so adore them in motion….maybe in the next life (if I'm good in this one) I'll experience that feeling for myself...

    The Great Smoky Mountains is the most visted national park in the US. But it is still a big place, full of wildlife. I have been hiking for 20 years in the park, and only a few times have I ever come across any of the large(ish) animals in the park. Once a bear, once some otters, a few times...

    Animals Elephant Seals

    We went on a guided tour at Año Nuevo State Beach, just south of Pescadero, CA. This is the primary mating/birthing area for Elephant Seals. They begin to come ashore in December. Right now, there’s a few hundred there, by this time next month, there will be thousands.
