Not every photo has come with a great learning moment or is part of a larger narrative. So today I just wanted to share a few miscellaneous moments, and encourage you to share photos of your own!
It may be a simple picture, but this shot of what I believe to be a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher is my favorite image to date. Wildlife photography is often more a science than an art. This image, however, appeals to me the way a painting might. The muted colors, busy background, gentle rain, and posture of the subject give me such a strong feeling of melancholy.
After my trip to Hawk Mountain, a beautiful Red Fox was generous enough to come almost within petting distance of my kitchen window. I sprinted to my camera and managed a few nice shots! Sometimes you’ll spend all day sitting on a mountain and not get a single shot. Other times the wildlife may come and find you instead!
