Javelina – two bodies one head?
We have spent a lot of time in Arizona developing the Desert Photo Retreat. I’m looking forward to many more photo opportunities from the area, these are a few including the crazy looking javelina.
A Gilded Flicker – maybe my favorite photo of the year.
We sure had some cool weather in Arizona last winter.
Last spring was wonderful for desert wildflowers.
One of my favorite desert birds.
Definitely one of my favorite desert mammals, and a daily visitor to the Retreat.
Two humpbacks in the air at once! During a spring trip to Glacier Bay National Park.
Another Glacier Bay image – scouting for this year’s photo tour.
I had two of the best bear tours that I have had in many years. So many bears, lots of cubs and even a wolf!
My bear and whale yacht trips still end up being my favorite trips of the year, and were really productive again in 2017. We had everything from rain and fog, to hot sunshine.
Back to the Desert Photo Retreat – so much to photograph here.
Have to have an image from the hometown!
From a trip I help guide.
A final image from a fun trip to Costa Rica this fall!
