I’ve written before about how many times I often snap the shutter on my camera to make sure I get the photo I want. Digital photography makes that a cheap insurance option and gives me lots of images to choose from … Continue reading
I usually shoot more than one composition of a scene or creature. It’s fun to experiment, and hard to know what I’ll like best when I am reviewing images on my computer later. Of course, having multiple choices is both … Continue reading
As I posted a couple days ago, I spent some time at my favorite wetland earlier this week. It was a cold, but very pleasant morning. The sun was moving in and out of thin clouds, creating attractive light and … Continue reading

Nature can be incredibly complex and difficult to understand. Every creature is always reacting to the conditions around them, and continually evolving strategies to keep up with an ever-changing world. Because we don’t always understand the full spectrum of challenges facing organisms their behavior sometimes seems illogical. (And, sometimes, it probably is.) Regardless, trying … Continue reading
