Into the sunset

Into_the_sunset_1

Two mule deer fawns head off into the sunset through fields of sunflowers and balsam root with grasses just tall enough to easily slip out of sight when need be. They were not alone this evening as Mom was just ahead leading and teaching these two little ones the ways of Mule Deer life as they quietly slipped off into the sunset.

Probing and Pollinating

Bugs and flowers go hand and hand. This little black and yellow guy was probing for nectar while doing a little polinating at the same time. One of the things that is fun about macro photography is getting a glimpse into a world you really can not see with the naked eye and all too often we forget that just because we can not see something it does not matter.

Jumping for Joy

While floating down a stretch of the Snake River in WY we startled this Sandhill Crane who was hidden in the grass on the river bank. They squawked a Sandhill Crane squawk and did a big jump of alarm but given the river was moving us right along they soon had the bank to themselves again.

Regardless

In morning light a wild rose shines bright.

Regardless the time of day or the weather outside the wild roses are blooming along the trails nearby, and boy oh boy, they are a beautiful sight.

In evening it’s just as fine.

On a rainy day rain not bad at at all…

Hope you can get outside wherever you are and enjoy the weekend.
