Pic du Jour #43: “Playing in the Dirt”

These kids were entertaining themselves in a remote section of Yellowstone National Park while their parents & the rest of us were wolf-watching.

I briefly wondered how far they had to drive before finding a tub of soap and water to clean them up, but then remembered that I often faced the same problem.

Some of My Best Friends Are Cats

Yes, I’m a dog person.

But I’m open-minded enough to take a walk on the wild side once in a while.

What’s not to like about cats?

They do your laundry

They do your dishes

They pick up toys

They warm up your favorite chair

They even unload manure from your car & spread it on your garden

😦 Tzuri likes cats too. She wants a couple for Christmas. 😦

A Walk in the Boonies

Some of you may remember that I started this website after a visit to Yellowstone and I was intent on posting mostly pictures of birds and animals. For the past couple of years, however, wildlife opportunities have been few and far between.

Yesterday I was able to reunite with some photog friends – Will, Ronnie, Debbie & Brandon – and we hit the trails together. I’m rusty with a long lens these days but here are a few mediocre shots that got my juices flowing again.
