Osprey w/ Headless Fish

I have taken so few opportunities to photograph wildlife in the last three years that I’m afraid I’ve forgotten how. My 400mm lens rarely leaves the house.

And osprey? They are as common in these parts as vultures. So much so that I once vowed never to bother photographing them again.

🙂  But I’ve rarely made a vow I didn’t mind breaking. 🙂

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.
