Tip Toed Into The World Of Mobile Devices

admin Sat, 10/15/2016 - 08:14

I jumped into the world of mobile devices! Ok ok don't pass out if you know me haha!
Because of this mobile device popularity and many folks seam to come to my websites on their mobile device...... I made the plunge and bought one for the websites.
I received it in the mail rather quickly and since it was the smallest one I could find, (for not a lot of money I might add), I just did not expect much.

Colorful Hummingbird

I heard a bird singing outside my door that I could not identify as quickly as some other visitors we get here at home on the High Desert of Oregon.

I grabbed my camera and went to the door and started looking around for whom was singing!

Lesser Goldfinch Family

admin Tue, 10/11/2016 - 11:13

This is a small family of the Lesser Goldfinch family of birds who spent time with us here at home.
Two are fledglings while one looks to me like their female, plus they made no attempts at hiding the fact they were demanding food from the adult. The males tend to be tad bit more flashier as the females demand such things of their males.....

sphinx moth hawk moth or hummingbird moth

admin Thu, 10/06/2016 - 13:51

Meet the Sphinx Moth or if you prefer the Hawk Moth or as I call it the "Hummingbird Moth", wrong or not that is just what I call it. This is just one of 1,450 species and this is the species that tend to visit our garden as well as at times comes inside the house to get put back outside. The moth above is in flight, hovering as hummingbirds do! Why I call them the "hummingbird moth", for it is easy for me to remember.


European Hornet

Meet the European Hornet! Rather big , flashy insect visiting my Foxglove Flowers.
This is the first time I had noticed this visitor here at the house, or anywhere! The first three photographs are cropped. I was not sure what I was dealing with so gave this bee plenty of room! The series of photographs is rather long so I stuck to uploading just these six photographs. Also had to read up on this European Hornet, for like I said I never photographed this species before.

Bald Eagle In Oregon

admin Wed, 10/05/2016 - 15:51

Bald Eagles are seen in our part of Oregon quite a lot! This one just happened to be at one of my spots to photograph the birds of prey.
This Eagle is wild and exhibits many of the same characteristics as some other animals, if they can not see you , you just are not there haha!
Before this Bald Eagle got to stressed out from the attention we left it be, perhaps the next person to come by with a camera will do the same thing and teach this big bird we just want some photographs?
I took this series of photographs at the end of June 2016.

Cultus Lake Oregon

This is Cultus Lake Oregon which is part of the Cascade Mountains. It is on the Cascade Lakes Hwy.

We tend to choose to go to such places when the visitors have all gone home. If we did not you would see people in my photographs. This is a pretty popular lake as most of our lakes are here in Oregon.

Comma Butterfly Of Oregon

admin Thu, 09/08/2016 - 22:27

I have my spots I stop at up in the Cascade Mountains, well most places I have my set spots I have had history of photographing the wildlife. This spot tends to have species of butterflies stop to get drinks, never know what I am going to photograph! Just know I am going to get a few different species!

This day was no different. The Cascade Mountains has plenty of large things to see, such as the birds of prey. What most folks just do not take the time to see is the smaller species of wildlife found in the Cascade Mountains!

Kwoneksamach Lost Lake Lava Tube Drain

As the name implies, "Unknown lava tube drain", of Lost Lake. Another natural phenomenon here in my state of Oregon! The Cascade Mountains have many secretes it just does not like to tell , this is one that has been baffling scientists for years!


Buffalo In Oregon

admin Sat, 07/30/2016 - 11:29

Some folks keep horses, others keep buffalo

The leader of this pack determined by the quick observation I had was the one who was caught rolling around in images 8-9-10. What that one said went!
