From The Best of Grand Canyon
Colorful Western Tanager
Stepped out of the woods and posed for me as I worked feverishly to get the lighting right.
From The best from All Over
So.. I step out from behind a large driftwood log and take his photo..he stands up and I think..should I run or shoot? You got it..never run from a bear!!
From The Best of Alaska
Occupied by keepers until just a few years ago, this lighthouse has seen many a passenger make their way through the Inside Passage.
Superstition mountains with a field of stars.

It is a Great Horned Owl baby that is just beginning to get his "horns".
From The Best of 2016
Just out for a stroll
Finally treed them and then they just stood there and looked at me?
Chiricahua National Monument
Looking up at a lot of rocks !!
Gray Breasted Jay
There must have been a dozen of these screeching and squawking at the trailhead at the Chiricahua National Monument
I have seen thousands of these birds and this is the closest that one has ever let me get.
I just had this odd feeling while I was walking around Bisbee today.
Rock mural in old Bisbee.
Riding with Jeanie
I guess that we know who is in charge here!
The old Homestead
On the Homestead
This old barn was once a very important place on the farm.
Magic Carpet ride
The Hamilton County Courthouse on a starry night.
Kind of a goofy looking goat..but hey..he looks good to me!!
Morning in Yellowstone
Something about the light early in the morning in Yellowstone is really special.
They kept a close eye on me and would not let me get any closer before disappearing into their burrows.
Never in the world did I think that he would sit still for me to take his photo once I got out of the truck.
One of many geysers that erupt on schedule in Yellowstone
Fall in Yellowstone on the river
Not pleased with me getting any closer..this badger clawed at the dirt a couple of times and then disappeared into the hole nearby.
Hundreds of years old..still in use.
Far out in the countryside is an area of stone circles...lots of them, many still uncovered. Thousands of years old and still a mystery.
A short break in the traffic across the bridge allowed a shot of the old keep and the walled town.
Gray sky, gray rocks..it is a black and white castle
This lady was exercising her border collies before a contest to make sure that they were "fit".
Sailboaters on the Lough for the weekend. It does not matter that it is 40 degrees and windy..we are going sailing!
Ireland is a very pastoral country. Sheep and Cows are at every turn of every narrow road in the countryside.
Wall art in Belfast is still a sight that is not uncommon.
Round towers were usually the precursor to the walls that followed. Defense was the name of the game in these walled villages.
Big, but short winged..they are everywhere!
A reminder in Derry (Londonderry)..even the residents cannot agree on the name of the town..the troubles are better, but feelings are still raw.
Every Irish farm boy needs a good Border Collie.
The stones are all so uniform that they appear to be man made. Hexigon shaped and smooth from thousands of years of wind and waves they sit at the edge of the sea.
Old Rugged Cross
Ireland is dotted with these old crosses in thousands of old graveyards..fascinating
Photo bombed by the cows
The cows were so interested in what we were doing that they lined up at the hedge row to watch the session.
