Is it Spring Yet?

From a large bird yesterday to a small bird, taken on Jan. 20, 2016, at Ridgefield NWR.  This Song Sparrow landed on a moss-covered log in the Ash Tree forest at the refuge.  Shoot first and ask questions later, I say.  I like how the image turned out.  Thanks for your views! ... Continue Reading

Brand new to the world

Here’s another young bird that I captured at the Ridgefield NWR, Aug. 11, 2015.  This is what I believe is a fledgling Song Sparrow.  He doesn’t quite have all his feathers in place yet but soon he’ll be as handsome as can be singing a beautiful song. Canon 7D ... Continue Reading

Hi, friends!  Today’s blog post covers pictures I took on Dec. 9, 2013.  It was cold, gray, and icy out. One excuse for my slowness in getting this post done is because I’ve been setting up a new PC.  My old PC is 4 years old and lately has been running at a crawl. ... Continue Reading

Here’s a quick look at some Ridgefield NWR images I took on Dec. 5, 2013.  A cold icy day for the wildlife.  The refuge is a wondrous place to go on days like this. First up I came across a frosty Great Blue Heron for which I have a whole lot of respect.  His feet are in ... Continue Reading

Nov. 29, 2013, was one of those cool, cloudy, and dark days that made shooting difficult.  Wildlife activity, for photography purposes anyway, was also ‘slow.’  I think I broke my record for the least number of frames taken in a shooting day–49.   All shots w ... Continue Reading

Continuing now with some more wildlife shots taken at Ridgefield on Sep. 9, 2013.  Had a decent day as far as variety goes but no lifers.  I took some shots with the 500 alone and some shots coupled with the 1.4x III extender. Let’s start off with a Great Egret that just ... Continue Reading

It’s another mostly sunny day at the Ridgefield NWR in southwest Washington state.  I decided to shoot from around noon until sunset today instead of catching the sunrise.  Temperatures were in the upper 20’s to lower 30’s, so there was some ice around. Speaki ... Continue Reading
