Duck Out of Water

Ducks are supposed to be swimming in the water-right?  Well, not all ducks stay in the water all the time.  We just have a picture in our mind that ducks should be swimming around in a lake somewhere. The fine specimen here is a male Wood Duck.  He’s standing on a large branch from a […]

Fish for Breakfast

What better way to start off the day than having fresh fish for breakfast.  Now if you didn’t know better, you’d think this little bird might have gotten a little ambitious in catching that rather large perch.  How does he expect to eat that big fish?   It just barely fits in its mouth.  But don’t […]

Vesper Sparrow

Vesper Sparrows can be found in northwest Louisiana during the winter months.  This bird was photographed at Red River National Wildlife Refuge Headquarters Unit.  A Savannah Sparrow was on the same dead tree as this Vesper Sparrow.  Seems like Savannahs are plentiful, but not so with the Vesper. Many sparrows tend to look alike [the proverbial LBJ (little brown […]

Headed for Cover

Spotted fawn White-tailed Deer are always high on the “awwwww”  and “it’s sooooo cuuuuuuute” factor.  This little one was photographed this past Sunday 12Aug12 at the Red River National Wildlife Refuge Headquarters Unit.  In over 5  years of photographing at Headquarters Unit, this is one of the few spotted fawns I’ve seen.  It’s nothing to […]

Aliens Among Us?

Could this be a new species from the jungles of some remote spot in South America?  Sort of looks like a kangaroo.  Maybe a genetic anomaly from the Australian outback.  Definitely resembles a mammal.  Knowing that the image was taken in Louisiana, we can rule out some type of kangaroo.  Not really what bigfoot is […]

Galloping Gallinule

Is this the swamp bird version of the funky chicken?  I ran across this bird last weekend at the Red River National Wildlife Refuge Headquarters Unit near Bossier City, Louisiana.  As pointed out by my birding friends, what was once a Common Moorhen is now called a Common Gallinule.  More commonly associated with southern Louisiana swamps, […]

Buck Fever

Buck Fever is what nature photography is all about.  You patiently wait in a camouflaged spot for hours, anticipating the chance to see a nice buck.  There are so many variables to consider.  If the wind is out of the south, the deer will be very wary.  The sun can make or break a good […]

The Shortcut

Why take the land route around the lake when you can take a shorter path in the water?  At least that is one explanation why these deer are in the water. The Shortcut was photographed on December 31, 2011 at the Red River National Wildlife Refuge Headquarters Unit in northwest Louisiana.  The time was after […]

Southbound

Occasionally in the fall, on a crisp cool northwest Louisiana night you might wake up to a sound that just isn’t normal.  You can hear something, but just can’t make out what all that racket is or where it’s coming from.  Finally you stick your head outside and still can’t quite figure out that noise.  […]
