Goodbye Spruce   13 comments

Yesterday our dear little Sprucie, a 9-year-old German Shepherd and retired guide dog who was with us only 15 months, passed away rather suddenly. I will miss her tail thumping against furniture to express her happiness, the sound of her trotting to the door to see who’s there, the long walks we took together along the beach, and her dopey smile. Here are the last pictures of her. I love you, Spruce!

Yellowstone Wildlife   2 comments

On a recent trip to Yellowstone, my son and I saw just about every major animal except moose: Bison, elk, coyote, bear (with bear cub), wolves. Here are a few shots I liked:

Big Buck   1 comment

This 13-point elk buck was watching over a herd of elk in Yellowstone National Park. I was fortunate enough to sneak up for 2 close-ups without being noticed (well, the second picture he’s looking right at me, so who am I kidding?).

Close Encounter with a Bison   Leave a comment

On a recent trip to Yellowstone, I saw this bison and took these photos while I followed it for an hour as it crossed Lamar valley, chomping on grass while generally ignoring me. He must have known he had nothing to fear from me. Figures, since he’s the largest land animal in North America, weighing roughly a ton.

Curious Lizard   Leave a comment

I loved how this lizard was perched upside down, looking around for danger (or is it food?). Captured in Costa Rica’s Manuel Antonio National Park.

Monarch Migration   1 comment

I encountered these Monarch butterflies during their migration southward. They had stopped at a tree that was covered with hundreds of them.
