I made a trip to Bosque not near as many birds as normal but still enough to keep us busy. I'm always looking for patterns like this one

My son in law and I made our almost annual trip to Bosque del Apache wildlife refuge near Socorro New Mexico last week, The bird numbers were way down from normal years but we managed to fine enough to keep us busy shooting. On the last morning we arrived well before sunrise and could hear the birds but couldn't see them, I tried to focus somewhere in the dark and with camera on tripod took a 2 second exposure, after several attempts to guess at focus I finally got this shot. I'm always amazed how a digital camera can find light in the dark.

We decided to stay at a campground on the Madison river so I got up early and and went out hoping to find an elk crossing in the early morning steam, just didn't happen after three days we moved on and tried Mammoth area for a few days then headed back and I thought lets try one more morning, sure glad I did !

Mt Evans is in Colorado west of Denver and is the highest paved road in the US, you can park your car at 14000+ ft, its one of the best areas to photograph Rocky Mountain Goats, I was lucky enough to be the only one on the mountain one morning well except for the goats ! its quite a feeling being up 13000+ ft all by yourself and get to photograph these beautiful animals as they feed along ignoring me.

Many people ask about my camera gear and what I shoot, I have been shooting Nikon almost from the beginning and I had a Nikon D2x and it was a great camera then I thought I needed a D300 so I retired the D2x and I have tried to like the D300, its better at hi ISO and maybe focuses a tad faster, but the other day I got the D2x back out and shot this image of a Heron taking off and it just felt so good ........... like a handshake with an old friend.

Just came back from Colorado and spent three days shooting Big Horn sheep in the rut, I think it was a little early but we still had action, spent most of our time in Big Thompson canyon looking up at the sheep. Had special company this trip, my son-in-law and grandson were with me, it was my oldest grandsons first time to see Big Horns and I also got to show him some elk and mule deer....... when I could pull him away from the Ipod anyways !! I think he enjoyed seeing them and maybe as he grows up we will get a chance to photograph them together again.

I left camp before sunup and saw three moose in the sage flats, I had to decide whether to go for them or the landscape sunrise, I chose the landscape thinking I would be back by the time the light was good on the moose, What I missed was a battle royal between two bulls and the old bull was replace, I showed up in time to get this shot of the winner !
