I photographed this howling coyote near sunset lake in the Biscuit and Black Sand Basins of Yellowstone National Park.I heard him howling but I could not spot him. He finally came out in a clearing and I was able to capture a few photos of him in action.
Springtime is by far my favorite time of year, especially here in Texas. The temperatures are pleasant, the flowers start blooming and the songbirds are a plenty. Eastern Phoebes are perennial around our property and I'm always excited to see them milling about.
I have always wanted to paint on canvas but I realized long ago that I don't that talent. Thankfully, technology allows us to do "Photography Painting" where we can take a photograph, and using software can create a painting.
We ran across this wonderful scene of bison on the range along highway 191 on our way to photograph the Grand Prismatic Spring. What caught our eye was the ever-changing light behind the group of American Bison.
I mentioned in yesterday's post titled "Handsome" that Northern Cardinals dominate the bird landscape this time of year. The second species has to be Western Scrub Jays who claim to be "More Handsome".
Most great images are all about being in the right place at the right time. This image was taken when the praying mantis came between me and the sun. I really like how the light bounced off his body, especially the gleam in his eye.
I was out in my back yard the other day scouting for bugs to shoot when I ran across a hawk feather. Days earlier I heard a hawk being very vocal. I was not sure if it was injured or if it was being threatened.
I began taking Texas Wildflower photographs early in 2015 after a discussion with some of my photography friends. At first I did not think that I would be interested in "taking pictures of flowers", but, it was fun and intriguing.
