A male Roseate Spoonbill splashes energetically at Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, June 2008. This bird was one of about 30 that began beating their wings against the water, one or two at a time. Within seconds, water droplets were flying...
Waiting for this sole hunter to get close to our waiting jeep. Outside of Kings Pool, Botswana. A race to see if we would spot the leopard before the sun set. Right at sunset, he climbed upon a tree stump, staring past us to his potential prey.

Got this Feisty Anna Hummingbird in my backyard in the Fall Foliage.
Taken in late afternoon in early September. There was a slight wind rippling the water. As if by cue, the Elk turned as it neared shore and cast a look back at me as if to confirm I got the shot.
I was at the lake watching and photographing the waterfowl as they came and went, then this group of Canada Geese came in honking and began to land on the far end of the lake.

What a delightful surprise to see this colorful creature come out to play. The local poinsettias were in full bloom in September.
On my daily walks through these regional parks, the light caught my eye in the grasses one morning and I saw this dormant dragonfly coated with morning dew. I only go out with a "one-lens" goal and shot this with my 300mm.
A small cow pond in this regional park is the home of several types of dragonflies. Late in the evening on this October day, I spotted this red dragonfly clinging onto a reed as he was being blown about in the wind.
