No Full Blown Arachnophobia Here

I am not a big fan of arachnids, but do not suffer from full blown arachnophobia either. I just choose to ignore they exist with the exception of keeping my house, well house, and other farm structures sprayed to ensure I do not get a nasty bite. In our area we have plenty of spiders, […]

Bird Feeder…Not

In Montana my friend has a bird feeder hanging outside her kitchen window. We usually have the opportunity to see a nice variety of pretty birds. This summer we had a little friend and he is who we saw most mornings. When we tried to tap on the window to shoo him away this is the reaction we received. I […]

Ducks Swimming to Safety

This photo was taken in Montana at a friends home. Her ducks were swimming to safety while a large Osprey was hovering to dive for fish in this pond. The ducks were not going to take any chances just in case the Osprey decided that they might make a tasty dish instead. They headed to the […]

Grizzly Sow and Cubs

These photos were taken in Glacier National Park. I was NOT prepared and only had my small digital out. It does not have the zoom that my larger has. These three were far away on a mountain meadow and I really did not have enough zoom to take a good photo. Thus the motto: Always […]

Grizzly in Lupine Flowers

Took photo of this Griz two weeks ago in Glacier National Park. Isn’t he a beauty? In case you are wondering, I was in the car and he was about 30 feet to my left in some bushes. I took one quick snapshot and then we drove off  before he decided he needed meat instead […]

Hungry Jackrabbit

As I have said before jackrabbits are very fast and never hang around for any photos. Unfortunately, our weather has been brutally hot and dry. All the pasture grasses have dried up to nothing and this week even the weeds have died. No pasture grass is devastating when you have livestock, but even the animals […]

Flowers Beware

Think twice when carefully placing your babies, toddlers or kids in wildflowers by the side of the road to catch that perfect Bluebonnet photograph. Take the time to inspect the area really well for anything that bites. This big boy would not play nice.

Zebra Close Up

Caught this photo of this friendly Zebra last year. He lives on a beautiful wildlife ranch and hangs out with other exotic wildlife. Did you know that the Zebra’s are related to horses, donkey’s and mules? I think this zebra is lucky. He has no lions and tigers close by to hunt him! He has a […]

Bear Visit

Here are a few more bear photos for you to enjoy. This bear decided to make herself right at home. Great for her, but not so great for the owners! Thanks to D. & S. for the photos.

Bear Hunting

Have a dear friend who sent me this picture this week. It was taken at her friend’s mountain home in Colorado last week. The bear took down all bird feeders along with the hummingbird feeder. Needless to say this photo was taken from inside the house where the owners did not venture outdoors! I just love it […]

Cottontail Cute

Cowboy snapped this photo of our little cottontail that hops around our yard everyday. She does not seem to be eating any of my flowers so I am happy for her to stay! We also have jackrabbits, but they are harder to photograph as they will not sit for us to take a nice photo.

Mountain Lions Are Out And About

A mountain lion mom and her cubs were spotted in our friends back yard last week in Montana. Thanks to J. for catching this great shot right outside his den window.

Just Another Pretty Face

I photographed this beautiful face last year.  He is in the Antelope family, although I cannot be more specific than that. Nice to have a pretty face living close by that I can photograph when I want. Just look at that nose! He lives on conservation land where hunting is not allowed. He is living the […]

Stranger Danger!

I love having strange and unusual neighbors. It makes for a fun neighborhood! This cutie does not live too far down the lane. As with some of my unique “neighbors”, my cowboy will not let me have one of these either. It’s OK. I would be scared to death that the coyotes would finish him […]
