Tiniest Jedi

It is that time of year again when the whole world feels the force. Star Wars: The Last Jedi releases tonight (early tomorrow morning)… I am stoked! As what is seemingly becoming a tradition, I have a picture of Yoda… I mean a Tarsier. Is this the Tiniest Jedi? I think so, I mean he…

Mexican Spider

Anyone who knows me well at all knows that I am a bit arachnophobic. That is why it is very weird that I have a fascination with taking photos of spiders. All I know about this spider is that it’s of the orb variety and that it lived in a very picturesque cactus tree overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Colorado Bison

The North American Bison, sometimes more commonly and incorrectly referred to as the American Buffalo, is an iconic creature. These massive creatures once dominated the central planes of North America. So much so that for many years these creatures became synonymous with the American West. It is thought that as many as 60,000,000 once roamed…

Big Horn

Ever stared down a Big Horn Sheep? No… well don’t! These creatures can be ornery and aggressive and have no issues running headlong into things for semingly no apparent reason. I had the privilege of getting fairly close to this guy from the relative safety of my car. This particular cuddly creature was hanging out around Glen Eyrie…

Puerto Rican Iguana

Most of the Iguanas we saw while in Puerto Rico were camera shy, but this guy seemed to pose for the camera. He came running up to my wife and I in a small field just above the cliffs, and hung out with us for a while. He then proceeded to the cliffside and started…

Cheyenne Hawk

So often we look up at birds in flight. I think the real beauty is found when you get up high enough that they fly around below you. Mt. Cutler Trail, located in the North Cheyenne Canon Park of Colorado Springs, is a great hike. It ends on a 1,500 foot cliff on the edge of…

Barbados Turtle

I don’t do a lot of underwater photography because I don’t live anywhere near the ocean. I have a cheap Ziplock type bag that I intrust my rather expensive camera to. Needless to say, I am a bit nervous that the bag is going to spring a leak every time I use it. It is hard…

Zhangjiajie Monkey

No, Zhangjiajie is not a type of monkey. In fact I have no idea what type of monkey this is. We came across this little guy and about thirty of his relatives on a trail in Zhangjiajie National Park. Zhangjiajie, for those of you who aren’t familiar, is China’s first National Park. It also happens to…

The Lizard King

This Collared Lizard is a resident in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park in Colorado. The Collared Lizard is an inquisitive species. They appear to enjoy having their pictures taken and can often be found sun bathing on rocks in the western states.
