This is starting to be a habit now. Every Wednesday my kids have gymnastics practice for 4 hours. I drop off the kids and my wife at the gym and I head out to the Merced NWR just before sunset. My goal this time was the very back pond, near the ‘Bittern Marsh Trail’. I
I’ve been trying to capture a Great Blue Heron (GBH), close up, for some time now. Every time I get closer they fly away. Yesterday I drove out to the Merced NWR, just because. Didn’t plan on getting anything, not even a sunset photo as there were no clouds. I just thought I’d drive the
While I was driving the loop at San Luis NWR, I finally saw a few Tule Elk close enough that my 300mm and 1.4x II could capture it. I still had to crop this to fill the frame though. Maybe next time the elk will be more cooperative!

I’m back this season as the “Official” Awana Clubs photographer. I haven’t taken any action shots in months, so I had to get used to that…but in no time I got the hang of it again! I was a little concerned about the water, but everything went fine. The only person that got close to
Took a day trip to Kings Canyon on Saturday with James. Unfortunately Michael wasn’t able to go. We drove out to Zumwalt Meadows and hiked the “mainly flat” 1.5 mile round trip around the meadow. Had to negotiate a couple of boulder fields, but I made it! James left when we were done hiking, but
