Castle’s Dragon

Every good castle needs a dragon. Albeit, this is a bit of a small dragon. Hey, every boy can dream about castles and dragons, right? This picturesque iguana is a resident of the ocean cliff walls in Puerto Rico. This is a stunning location. The rampart in the background is Castillo de San Cristobal, which…

A Florida Sunset for the Birds

Why is it that simple scenes, like this Florida sunset, can invoke such peace in our souls? I took this image of the seagulls in the setting sun at Venice Beach, Florida. It is a great spot to sit and let your life slow down for a moment, watching as the small gulf waves roll…

Rhinos: Saving Africa’s Wildlife

One of the most rugged creatures on the planet looking almost jovial with a slight smirk as he surveys his watering hole. This Rhino is a resident of the Denver Zoo. Say what you will about zoos, but I think they are better than the alternative. It’s a opportunity for saving Africa’s wildlife.  Sadly, we…

Lesser Goldfinch

The Lesser Goldfinch seems no lesser to me than any other golden finch, but alas, it is the name that man in our infinite wisdom has given to this brightly colored bird. I like his mohawk… do you think that is bed head or is he using product? 🙂 I found this stunning specimen of…

Hot Feet

This lizard appears to be trying to keep his body away from this rock, and for good reason. It was a very hot day in Colorado National Monument. I can only imagine how much this stone was sizzling. I find all forms of life to be fascinating. It is interesting to me to see this…

Red Sea Anemones

I found these gorgeous cherry-looking Sea Anemones clinging to the rocks on the secluded West End Beach of Ulva Island in New Zealand.  The beach is named West End, because it is the western most beach on the island. (Those European names are so clever and original.) When I came across these sea anemones I wasn’t…

Zebra Crossing

What’s not to love about a place where Zebras stand in the middle of the road and stop traffic… not that there’s much traffic here. I found this Zebra crossing the worn down dusty road in the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania. This is a safari park inside a giant extinct volcanic caldera. It is perhaps…

Laser Focus

Is there any wonder as to why this bird is known as the Great Blue Heron? These giant birds are gorgeous and have a very distinctive look. They appear to have a sole laser tight focus, staring off in a specific direction for seemingly never-ending amounts of time. This one didn’t seem at all concerned by my…

Snow Cat Eyes

Have you ever stared into the eyes of a wild Snow Leopard high in the Himalayan Mountains and thought to yourself, “This is it. This is how it ends?” Well… me neither, but that would have made for a much better story than, “I saw this pretty cat at the Denver Zoo.” Still, it is a…
