Layered Lands

Layered Lands

From marsh shrubs to sagebrush to pine forest to snow-covered peaks. A wide open landscape sure helps bring peace and quiet to a busy brain. Looking out from the marshlands at Red Rocks National Wildlife Refuge in Montana.

Ephemeral

Delicate

Desert flowers enjoying the morning dew as we start on a hike in the canyon lands of the Colorado Plateau. These flowers seem to last only a day at the most. Knowing this we enjoy their beauty all the more. A life lesson taught flowers.

Bullocks

Bullocks

The Oriole that is. Bight orange and beautiful the Bullocks Oriole. Who can resist that goatee and the Zoroesque mask. We typically see hundreds of Oriole nest in the winter and early spring but only catch a rare glimpse of the maker. This year we were lucky and got several nice opportunities.
