Raven Taking Flight

I saw this raven land on the stump and was hoping to photograph it when it took off.  Luckily it didn’t sit there too long so I was ready when it took flight.

Red Bark

This tree stood along a trail I was hiking one morning.  I thought the vivid, rusty bark contrasting with the greens of the moss and pines made this an interesting study of color and texture.  The early morning shade provided the perfect soft, even light to produce the deeply saturated colors just as I remember seeing them.


Chipmunk On Rock

This chipmunk was scurrying among the rocks of the Firehole River in Yellowstone National Park.  It stopped on a nice sunny rock long enough for me to take this photo.

I nearly stepped on this small black and red spider before I noticed it hanging out on a lichen covered rock.

On The Prowl

This black bear slowly wandered through a meadow while we watched it from a safe distance.  I wish the lighting had been better but that’s one of the challenges of wildlife photography.


Damselfly On The Rappahannock

Colorful damselflies roam the shoreline of the Rappahannock River in Virginia.  I photographed this one during a summer canoe trip.


Black Bear With Cubs

A black bear and her two cubs look for food among fallen timber.  While we watched they periodically stopped and clawed at the fallen trees.  I can only assume they were after the insects inside the logs.
