I'm excited to mention I recently sold my first image commercially. One of my Canada Goose photos will be used in a 2015 Ducks Unlimited calendar.

Tree Mouse

I suppose if we refer to squirrels as "tree rats" then a chipmunk up a tree could be called a tree mouse?

Giant Rain

This giant storm formed over the course of half an hour. According to the weather service, it reached a height 55,000 feet and would eventually collapse releasing a torrent of rain. Photos of this huge system were taken from all over the region.

Dos Turkeys

A couple of wild turkeys took an afternoon stroll through my brother's backyard while we were there on vacation. They definitely aren't what I'd call handsome up close, but during spring mating season they are rather impressive in full strut.

Homegrown II

These azaleas are in the front flower garden and, with all the rain we've had this year, they bloomed quite nicely.

These are some of the many photos I took a few months ago, but simply didn't have time to post. As you can tell by the leaf buds, these are from late winter/early spring. I like to try to stay current with my photos, but sometimes it's just impossible to get them all in before seasons change.
