Rattlesnake

February 27, 2024  •  3 Comments
It is that time of the year here in New Mexico when rattlesnakes will start to wake up from their winter sleep. Once temperatures consistently reach 60 F (or 15 C), these cold-blooded snakes will become active once again. Now that the birds have started leaving the Rio Grande valley near my home; think thousands of snow geese and sandhill cranes w...

Back from winter Yellowstone trips!

February 20, 2024  •  Leave a Comment
It's been a while since you heard from me! I've been busy guiding winter photography trips in Yellowstone and the Tetons, and just got back to my home in New Mexico a few days ago. Lots of catching up to do! The first trip was an 11-day pro photo trip: it was amazing! We got to go on a private snowcoach for 3 days into the interior of Yellow...

Bull Moose in Fall Colors

January 16, 2024  •  Leave a Comment
This bull moose guarded his cow in a nice fall setting, surrounded by golden aspen foliage. I found these moose while hiking in Jackson Hole. Invisible from a distance, the bull got up first when I hiked past the aspen forest. I was amazed he could 'fit' inside the dense forest with his antlers. Moose fine art prints are available on Etsy (cl...

Bull Moose in Wild Flowers

January 03, 2024  •  Leave a Comment
The Northeastern section of Yellowstone into the tiny towns of Silver Gate and Cooke City is a great place to go looking for moose. I found this big bull in the Custer Gallatin National Forest which borders Yellowstone National Park. Even though hunting is allowed there, I was surprised at how not skittish this bull moose was, and, how big he was...

Young Grizzly

December 28, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
Now that the bears are all safe inside their winter dens, I continue editing the thousands of pictures I took this past year. This past spring, Felicia, a.k.a. grizzly 863, kicked out her 2.5 year old cubs as expected. The cubs didn't go very far, however. They stayed in the area where Felicia raised them, around the Togwotee mountain pass that i...

Fox Kit Close-Up

December 25, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
Upclose and personal with a cute fox kit in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. I brought my big 500mm prime lens but the fox didn't get the idea that I was using it to keep sufficient distance from the wildlife. The kit wandered over and all I could get was this framing, before he wandered too close for the minimal focusing distance of the lens!...

Incoming!

December 10, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
Sandhill Cranes arrive for the night at one of the ponds in New Mexico's Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge. It's great fun photographing the bird silhouettes as they fly into the safety of water to spend the night. There are plenty of coyotes and bobcats around, who cannot silently approach the birds while they're in the water. When phot...
