  1. Hummingbirds

    11 Apr 2022
    The temperatures are on the rise and the hummingbirds are out an about. They pose a challenge to photograph as they zip around erratically, sometimes I get lucky and snap a nice shot or two. They fear little, I’ve had them fly up and drink out of the feeders while…

  2. Instagram Image Collection

    19 Feb 2022
    I haven’t used Instagram much over the past few years, the account has been neglected.  That being said, I’ve decided to start posting to the site again as not all images I take make it to the blog or social media sites.  Here is a collection of shots I’ve recently…

  3. Bobcat Encounters

    12 Feb 2022
    In the past six months we’ve encountered bobcats four or five times. I grew up in southern New Mexico and I might have run across two over the years.  They are quite prolific here in Tucson, I’m just glad they are in my neighborhood area. The following recent shots are…

    01 Feb 2022
    Whitewater Draw Wildlife Area is about an hour and a half south of Tucson near the town of McNealy.  We arrived at the location around 8am and only a few people were out and about viewing the wildlife. The site has several walking paths, a number of benches, and a…

    I just returned from a peaceful and somewhat relaxing visit to Bosque Del Apache wildlife refuge, just south of Socorro New Mexico.  If you’ve never been and you enjoy bird watching or just wildlife photography in general, this is place you will enjoy.  As this was the second trip, I…

  7. Backyard Birds

    20 Nov 2021
    You never know what might show up in your backyard when it comes to wildlife. Most recently, I’ve spent some time trying to capture images of the bids in the area. This is the first time I’ve run across a broad-billed hummingbird. The colors are amazing!  Thanks for taking the…

  8. Harris Hawks 2021

    18 Nov 2021
    Hawks or birds of prey are fascinating to me.  Harris hawks are one of the few bird species which hunt together to increase their odds of a successful kill, much like wolves do. The birds will often stand on the back of another hawk to help scout for prey.  We…

    Bosque Del Apache is just south of Socorro New Mexico. The wildlife refuge has been around since the 1930’s and offers a lot for wildlife in the region. Sandhill cranes, snow geese, ducks and more use this area as a stopping point while migrating south for the winter. This was…

  10. Bosque Del Apache - Socorro New Mexico

    02 Mar 2019
    What a great place to photograph! We left on Saturday morning and thankfully the weather held out. About a week or so ago most of the high country in AZ and NM were hit with storms and snow. It made for a beautiful drive, but I was a little nervous…
