It is believed that centuries ago native Indian horses were cross bred to shipwrecked Arabians creating the beginnings of this breed.

Horses In Motion

While working on another project I was struck yet again by the grace and athleticism of horses. Sometimes poetry in motion and other times very free form and frequently comical. I've put together some of my favorites below choosing black and white to showcase these amazing animals. Grace The natural beauty and balance of a horse's gait is a pleasure to watch. The movements…

Bears 2022 – Part II

Each morning while I was at Lake Clark National Park in Alaska mama bear (Agra) would bring her two cubs out to walk the beach looking for fish or clams. Not finding much she kept up a fast pace. The two cubs didn't seem to mind, running, playing and exploring along the way. The Morning Routine Agra's first stop was to check out the…

Bears 2022 – Part I

This year I had hoped to photograph the Alaskan Coastal Brown Bears fishing for salmon. My dates were for what has been traditionally the peak of the salmon run. However, as often happens in wildlife photography Mother Nature refused to cooperate. An inordinate amount of rain in previous weeks had raised the level of the water and the salmon had not begun their run.…

Frogs 2022 – Part III

While in Africa back in 2008 I met a photographer, Jim Zuckerman, who organizes photography trips. One of his trips was a Frog workshop. I attended and was hooked. Through him I got to know Patrick Nabors, the frog's handler. When Patrick (and his frogs) moved near my hometown of Kansas City and set up a photography studio it gave me a perfect excuse…

Frogs 2022 – Part II

This year's marathon photo shoot allowed me the opportunity to photograph not just frogs, but some of the other intriguing reptiles that my friend, Patrick Nabors, has in his collection. I was also able to experiment with some different set-ups for the frogs. Below are a few more of my images from this year. Frogs This first group shows the active Tiger-legged Tree Frog…

Frogs 2022 – Part I

As you probably know I have a lot of fun photographing these little frogs and their friends. It's not my intention to portray them as they are in the wild. Finding props to show off their colors and agility is part of the fun. The frogs are carefully handled by their owner and come to no harm while being photographed. After eleven years of…

Namibia – Part II

The Namib Desert runs the length of the coast of Namibia. Estimated to be 55-80 million years old it is possibly the oldest desert in the world. Needless to say, there is a lot of sand in Namibia.

Namibia-N/a’an ku sê

Several years ago I made a trip to Namibia in southern Africa. Our first stop was at N/a'an ku sê, a wildlife sanctuary not far from Windhoek, the capital of Namibia. Established by conservationists, Marlice Van Vuuren and her husband, the sanctuary works to find ways for farmers and cheetahs and other predators to co-exist.

Summer Flowers – Hibiscus

The colorful flowers of the Hibiscus attracted me to this plant a number of years ago. Quite a number of them seem to have followed me home. Most are the exotic or fancy hybrid Hibiscus, but several are the larger cold hardy variety. The Exotics With hundreds of color combinations the exotic Hibiscus blooms are breathtaking. Sadly the flowers only last for a day.…

Sweet Scents of Summer

As though in compensation for our steamy, hot summers in south Louisiana, the air is filled with the heady scents of Magnolias, Gardenias and Roses. I'm very fortunate to have all three outside my door. I've been enjoying photographing them and thought I would share a few of my images.

Florida Birds 2022

Part III — Before leaving the west coast of Florida I went to Coral Gables in search of Burrowing Owls. I was shocked to find that many of the burrows that I’d visited in previous years were no longer there. Instead, houses were built or being built.

Florida Birds 2022

Ballet of the Reddish Egret — I have always been fascinated with the method the Reddish Egrets use to catch small fish. It reminds me of a somewhat frantic ballet. Their movements are quick and energetic sometimes running, sometimes jumping or flying low over the water.

Part I — Circumstances the past couple of years have prevented me from making my annual trip to Florida to photograph birds, so I was very happy to finally make it back last week. I began my sojourn on the west coast below Fort Meyers.

OWLS

Part II — Photographing Snowy Owls in the dead of winter in Canada was one of the coldest photo shoots I've ever done. There was a day where it was so cold that you ran the risk of frost bite if you exposed any of your skin.

BEARS 2021

PART III — Our guide took us to a bear who was relaxing on a log near a small inlet. Unfortunately, the mosquitos were so bad that he couldn't get comfortable. His solution was fun to watch and gave me the images for this series.
