You Are Getting Sleepy

Yawning encourages drowsiness, and drowsiness encourages sleep. Here is a little yawning yoga practice for those times you need to be encouraged to yawn.

Wild Quakers of South Florida

Every once in a while I’m in the right place at the right time with the right camera and lens configuration to capture some wonderful wildlife photos. Such was the case on a Sunday afternoon in May, 2019 in Stuart Florida near a friend’s home. Along with being the “sailfish” capitol of the world, and…

Kermit at Channel 9

Kermit the Frog, Jim Hansen of Muppet fame, was a guest on Bozo’s Bigtop show circa 1973. I was able to capture a couple songs he sang during the program. See if you can remember these: It’s not easy being green Sing A Song The photo is a shot of me, circa 1973, dressed as…

Flight of the Great Blue Heron

Click… Click… Click… Click…
That’s what you usually hear while standing next to photographers with cameras with big lenses. I often overhear bystanders ask, “Why do they shoot so many pictures of the same thing”?

Cypress Pool – Everglades

Jo and I decided to break Easter tradition this year so we decided to go Alligator hunting. Yea, seriously. On the way to our destination deep in the everglades I just had to click off this very classic Florida shot of an American Egret sitting on the center of a Cypress hammock over an alligator…

Understanding Caracaras

Crested Caracara

Over the years while traveling from our home in South Florida to destinations to the north, we often see beautiful Crested Caracara along the Eagle Trail in Central Florida. These birds were once many, ranging from the grasslands in southern Florida, north around the Florida panhandle, then west around the Gulf Coast, and south through…

Always on watch

Caracaras live in the savanna areas of Florida, Texas and Mexico. They are beautiful and impressive birds with unusual markings. Their calls are almost like high pitch whistles. They are often seen on posts, like this, near the edge of the field waiting for road kill. This guy was quite comfortable in the rain.

Face to Face – Meet the Wildlife in South Florida

For me, wildlife photography is not about taking pictures for contests or sales or even hanging on a wall, it’s about the relational experiences created and enjoyed while taking the picture. It’s about the friendships made while photographing or the experience of the trip to get to the place to capture images and it’s about…
