Melanistic Red Fox

March 26, 2024  •  Leave a Comment
The Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem is home to the Red Fox. Even though the fox looks like a mid-sized dog, it typically only weighs around 15 pounds (7 kg) and most of its appearance is fur. The largest Red Fox males can be up to 30 pounds. Easily recognizable by the white tip on its tail, as the name suggests, the main body of the Red Fox is typi...

River Eelgrass

March 24, 2024  •  Leave a Comment
When visiting Arizona's wild horses that live along the Salt river, a few miles east of Phoenix, you may wonder how on earth these large animals find enough food to survive in the desert. Situated in the Sonoran desert, you may wonder the same about the Phoenix metro's human population of 4,6 million. That was the first thing I pondered after I mo...

Snow Geese Migration

March 20, 2024  •  Leave a Comment
The spring migration is on for snow geese. As an estimated 50,000 of them spend winter in New Mexico's Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge along the Rio Grande, during spring they migrate north to their breeding grounds. Most snow geese that spend winters here in New Mexico go to Canada or the Alaskan tundra, but it's astonishing that some...

Bison in Yellowstone National Park

March 09, 2024  •  Leave a Comment
A young bull bison poses in Yellowstone's Lamar Valley. I made this image at 500mm in order to keep a safe distance and to blur the fore- and background. Bending down to be at eye level is definitely one of the best tips for wildlife photography, to create a sense of intimacy. Bison Fine art prints start at just $47: click here for my Etsy shop...

Colorful Fox Kit

March 07, 2024  •  Leave a Comment
A young fox kit poses in a colorful setting. This den was located in the rocky environment of mountain foothills, with lots of places to explore, and hide if needed, for the fox kits. All I had was my big 500mm f/4 prime lens so I setup in a spot and waited for one of the kits to wander into this scene. The camera was setup on a tripod and the le...

Coyote Close-Up

March 05, 2024  •  Leave a Comment
Who can say 'no' to a cute coyote pup? This little one was so curious, it walked up to my big lens while I was laying at the ground to get to the pup's eye level. Taken at the equivalent of 750mm focal length, it's surprising how quickly they fill the frame, and, how limiting a fixed prime lens is with no ability to zoom out! Select wildlife ima...

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  •  1 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...
