Exploring the World – One Image at a Time

Fox Family

I am very fortunate to live where I live.  So many photo opportunities.  There is a family of closes living very close to the farmstead.  I imagine they are related to the ones that have live close for a number of years.  I think I read once that the female will return to where she was born to raise her young.  For what ever reason, I am so glad they are close.  Watching the Kitts play is like having a basket of puppies.  These photos were taken with a Browning Trail Camera.  It has been set up by the den long before the Kitts arrived.  They just think it is part of the scenery.  There are five Kitts in total.  They don’t seem to play outside together all the time.  This may be a survival mode.  I read (yes I do a lot of reading) that out of six only two or three will live to September.  Yes Mother Nature can be cruel.  I hope you enjoy watching them as much as I do.

High School Rodeo

Yesterday I attended my first high school rodeo.  Such eager and dedicated young people.  And gorgeous horses.  I could have brought a trailer load home.  It was horribly cold out, Mother Nature was blowing out of the Northwest straight into the bleachers.  The photos you are about to see are the juniors.  I was too frozen to stay for the seniors.   By the time the juniors were finished I couldn’t tell the difference between camera shake and body shake.  Hope you enjoy the action.

Survival of the Fittest

I am truly grateful to be living where I live.  There are so many photography opportunities.  At the present there is a family of foxes living close by again.  I am able to have a trail camera close to them and am getting some amazing photos.  The kits have just begun to come out of the den.  Below are a few for now.  Look forward to more!  Click on the thumbnail photo and then arrow thru the collection.

Moose on a Mission

  • The Boy and I usually go for walks in the morning, if it is nice out.  This particular morning I really didn’t feel like going, knew I was just being lazy, so garbed the camera and off we went.  We were just meandering in the pasture.  Surroundings were pretty quiet.  I stopped to take some shots of a thorn bush, the boy was off exploring.  Something caught my eye and I looked over into the field and saw something moving.  Looked again and it was a moose.  Called the Boy over and leased him and moved a bit closer and started taking photos.  Took awhile for the Boy to see the moose and then I was holding him while taking shots.  The  moose stopped, saw us and didn’t seem to be upset.  Continued on his way up the hill towards the yard site which is the other side of the poplars in the photos.  He stopped on the hill and must have seen the horses as he stood for awhile.  As soon as they saw him he turned and ran back towards us.  He saw us and the Boy saw him and he turned away from us.  Turned out to be a good day for a while with the Boy and a camera.  Enjoy.

 

 


Crocuses 2019

It is amazing how fast these pretty little purple flowers appear.  The Boy (last picture) and I have been hunting them for about a week.  We found two, two days ago.  Missed going to our favorite hunting spot yesterday and went down today and were greet with lots of happy faces turned to greet the sun.  I hope you enjoy what we discovered.  By clicking on the thumbnail, the images with enlarge and you can then move thru the gallery.  Enjoy.

Team on black

Awhile ago I posted this photo on Instagram.

The owners of the team happen to follow my Instagram account and contacted me to commission a print to be printed on canvas sized to 24″ by 26″.  It is difficult to turn a square into a rectangle so I reworked print and came up with this creation.

They were pleased with the new picture and sent me a picture of the picture on their living room wall.  It did look nice.
