Bighorn-attitude597 viewsA young bighorn looks directly at me while his mom keeps munching in the background. Black Mountains, Arizona. They are part of the largest continuous herd of desert bighorns in the nation- right here in my backyard.
Allen's Lappet-browed Bat408 viewsI took this photo while on assignment. I wrote and photographed an article on scientists who were studying a rare colony of Allen's Lappet-browed (or big-eared) bats in the Black Mountains of Arizona. This was taken with a flash inside a cave where a colony of these bats lived. It was a very cool experience to walk down in there with bats zooming by (and no, they didn't get tangled in my hair- their sonar is far too sophisticated for that!)!
Bighorns192 viewsA herd of bighorn sheep seem to pose for the camera. Taken way out in the middle 'o nowhere in the Black Mountains. Note the red radio collar on the sheep at left- she is part of an AZ Game and Fish Dept. study.
Desert Bighorn Sheep- Double Vision322 viewsThese wild bighorn rams near Boulder City, Nevada, and the Hoover Dam were in the middle of rut when I took this photo sometime around July. The male on the right lifts his lip in the "flehmen" posture, smelling for the scent of a ewe ready to breed. The sheep come down to a park to feed and aren't terribly afraid of people.
Black-necked Stilt190 viewsI love these birds. Taken at the Palo Alto Baylands in the San Fransisco Bay Area, California in January 2007.
Border Collie Intensity443 viewsA friend's Border Collie, showing the intensity the breed is known for. I should know- I have one myself and it's hard to keep up with these dogs!
Campground Cardinal208 viewsA cardinal I photographed at Lake Roosevelt in AZ. I like how the teardrop shape of the rope is echoed in the teardrop shape of the bird.
Coots at Night186 viewsTaken at night along the Colorado River. The only light used was the neon reflections of casinos in Laughlin, Nevada across the river.
Coyote Smile327 viewsI called in this coyote on a September morning in 2004, right after calling in the redtail hawk which also appears in this gallery. I wore camouflage and used a predator call (which sounds like a screaming rabbit) to bring him/her in. He then posed for me for about a half hour! This was my favorite shot.
Coyote run2228 viewsI used a "screaming rabbit" predator call to lure this gray-colored coyote in one cold January morning not too far from my house. His mate was with him, and they both ran back and forth in front of me several times before moving on to other things.
Mule Deer Fawn240 viewsA scanned photo from a 35mm film picture I took in Zion National Park several years ago.
Elk Face261 views"Raghorn" elk bull makes a face. (May be doing "flehmen posture" in order to evaluate nearby female elk's readiness for breeding.)
