PWP Week of July 19 2020

Another week in the book.  It was a hot humid one here.  The Boy and I spent a lot of time in the house.  Sunday wasn’t too bad, which was a good thing as I spent a few more hours photographing the rodeo slack.  Lots of pictures of cowgirls and cowboys riding gorgeous horses.  The trail camera did an awesome job of capturing our deer and the foxes that share space with us.  I did manage to get pictures myself of a doe and later two fawns.  Due to the high temperatures we spent some time creating in Studio 13.  I hope you enjoy this week’s photos.  We had fun taking them and editing them.  Till next week!

PWP Week of June 28 2020

This week was a week of celebration.  July 1st  for my Canadian friends and July 4th for my American friends.  Hope all had a good time.  I spent July 1st home with my family. The only fireworks was the discussion on what to have for supper!  We had warm/hot weather and thunderstorms this week.  The shots of the clouds are straight out of the camera.  No magic editing.  The clouds looked fierce but we only had minimum wind and 3/10th of rain.  My assistant the trail camera caught a whitetail doe and her fawn and two of the bucks that spend time in our area. The Boy and I went on a road trip one day.  Saw some cattle and a moose on a hill that someone had built .  Looks pretty realistic. One evening when we were out and about, there were turkey vultures flying over head.  That does give a person a funny feeling!  On one of our hot days The Boy and I spent time in Studio 13 experimenting with different props and backgrounds.  I had a good time, felt good getting the creative parts of the brain working.  The Boy had a good nap!

All in all it was a good week. Hope to see you next week.

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.

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.

Back for another year

For several years, we have had a Red Fox move in under the steel bins across the road from our home.  It appears once again we have one in residence.  As the Red Fox has a life span of about 5 years, I am assuming the one we have now and maybe last year, is an off spring of the original one we saw.  This shots were captured with my Browning Trail camera.  Hopefully I will be able to show you some of this years kits.

Red Fox 2015

For the fourth year in a row, we have had a Red Fox make her den underneath one of the steel bins located across from our home.  We see her off and on; and she and our dog have a race once in awhile.  She always wins.  Once before I was able to photography three little ones.  This year she only had one and I caught it outside one day.  Have a look at the cutie!

Fox in the Redfox Valley

This morning when the boys and I went for our walk,  there was a fox in the field west of the buildings.   The boys didn’t see her so I was able to get photos.  She was a long way away and I had to crop these shots to show you.  She has made her home under the bins close to us and I’m hoping she will again this year.  Two years ago I was able to take some really good shoots of her pups.
