My photo

Anything outdoors!  Tornadoes, eagles, blizzards, or auroras.  If it is in the sky, running through the woods or swimming in the water, I'm there!

Spring migration almost here

Starting to see some tracts of the Mississippi open up. Lots of diver ducks (bills and goldeyes) moving tonight. Found a new place to get into the north side of the river near Monticello. Kind of a hike but worth it as didn't see another person for a change. There was a great horned owl nearby also. I caught a glimpse of him once but too far away to get any photos. Still was cool to hear him and send groups of ducks and geese into a frenzy every time he moved from tree to tree.



River ice clings to a rock as the sun sets


Trumpeter swan is silhouetted against the darkening sky

A pair of Canadian geese take flight as a great horned owl passes nearby


Last light as I hike out of the woods one day closer to spring

One fun photo playing with a long exposure and a little LED light

That LED picture is really cool. I'm going to be in the market for a longer lens soon here, so I'll be hitting you up for advice.
