I was at eye level as this horse approached me without losing a bite.
A Great Grey Owl focuses on my presence as he abandons his tree perch in deep December frost and cold, Jackson, WY. These owls amaze both in their silence of presence and their dexterity as they easily maneuver through the dense Douglas Fir canopy in search of food.
near the house, smoke from a Yellowstone fire fills the air as the sun sets.
In deep December cold, this Grey Owl turns his head to listen to potential prey, hundreds of feet away. These owls incorporate parts of their facial "dish" to capture sounds of prey.

The thin blue line of the horizon depicts a summer storm. Someone close was passing away on that day, and the sky reflected the inner turmoil.
Northern Flicker nest, Gros Ventre riverbed, Wyoming. Black bears are feeding on these nests lately. This bird was a day away of fledging when this was taken, so off to the world of Flickers!
A cold April morning with grey light, sleet and snow- a mossy, lonesome horses near our house made me want to take her home and warm her up in a comfortable barn (which is not present).
Mormon Row, Grand Teton National Park. These barns were built in the early 1800's and are a perfect foreground for the Grand Teton.
I keep coming back to this barn, because the sky is frequently dramatic, as it was on this day as i returned from fly fishing. I set the shot up just as the rain started.
Canadian Geese fly over a deserted barn in Eastern Idaho as a rain cloud threatens. I saw and heard the geese coming. I had already set the shot up for the sky and the barn, and they were a bonus to add.
Old barns are always intriguing subjects for me. The wood tells a story - old growth perhaps, the likes of which are gone forever.
A fish-eye lens captures an aspen grove in winter. I looked through the lens of the camera and i saw an eye - with aspens forming an iris.
Wistful and lonesome, this horse is about to be treated to a pelting rain storm. Moss grows in his hair. It's the wild west - and these beasts are tough, but there's a soft spot in me which wants to take them home to a warm barn.
It was a moment of experimentation - mounting the camera and lens on a tripod but pulling back the zoom ring during a length of time, to create a watercolor effect with the trees that were in front of me.
"next time, let's wash behind these ears."
Long Billed Curlews are sandpipers, here shown in Grand Teton National park in June. I will probably see them again in the Northern CA coast this winter.
