Like Jewels, Except They're Birds
This is where the whole photography thing began. I put in a flower garden, and these gorgeous little faery birds started showing up. "These are cool, I should take their pictures!" I said to myself. Because if you want to learn to use a camera, snapping photos of tiny creatures that fly just under the speed of sound is an awesome and completely not frustrating way to start. By that way, a group of hummingbirds is called a "charm," and isn't that perfect?
The Majestic Murder Birds
Birds of Prey are the coolest, and I'm fortunate to live in SW Idaho amidst the densest population of nesting raptors in North America-- and the home of the World Center for Birds of Prey, where I volunteer. They're photogenic as heck and will stare straight at you as they calculate whether you're light enough to be hauled off to the nest for late-night snacking. Behold the feathery assassins.
Landscapes & Botanicals
Things I Don't Have to Chase
Sometimes it's sweet to just take a leisurely stroll with my camera, knock down the shutter speed and enjoy the beauty of things that don't jump, run, or fly. This is where I get to play with fun effects and put my Lensbabies to use, or just open up the aperture and experiment with texture and bokeh and swirls. Take a wild walk with me!
Frogs and Foxes and Deer and Stuff
No matter how many times I happen upon a princely bullfrog or angsty baby buck with his newly sprouted antlers, It never fails to enchant me. We share this planet with such incredible non-humans! Don't forget, "ribbit!" is like "aloha," --it always means something good. Come see for yourself.
The Boise River and our city park ponds are party central for those with built-in water wings. I firmly believe herons-- who somehow merge majesty and derpy-ness in equal measure-- are time-traveling visitors from pre-history. You be the judge...
Really Tiny Friends
Did you know that some dragonflies have a face like a cartoon dog? Well, now you do, and this knowledge will re-emerge whenever you walk past a pond on a summer evening and a dragonfly buzzes your head. "Who's a good boy?!" you'll ask, and the dragonfly will smile.
