8/19/12 - Black bear; best viewed in the largest sizes.  Photographed at Bear Country, SD.  When I took this shot, there were probably about forty bears within the range of my camera.  They were all moving around.  It was a hot day; this one has just gotten himself wet down by a hose. I found the bears to be difficult to shoot, as their faces were so dark.  I had to use the exposure compensation to lighten the face enough to pull out the detail there.  Thanks for the comments on my daughter's cat.  Much appreciated.

3rd year Pic 313 - Aug 26 2011  Magpie Robin  Khem Vilas, Ranthambhore    More pictures at   http://hershy.smugmug.com/Travel/Ranthambhore/RT-June-2011/17444320_Qps9C3    The magpie-robins or shamas (from shama, Hindi for C. malabaricus)[1] are medium-sized insectivorous birds (some also eat berries and other fruit) in the genera Copsychus and Trichixos. They were formerly in the thrush family Turdidae, but are more often now treated as part of the Old World flycatcher Muscicapidae.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magpie-robin
August 27, 2011-Caught another Promachus - Giant Robber Fly in the field by some power line towers. I was actually looking for some dragon flies but never saw any. The winds started picking up over night. So I am going to post early while I still have power. Stay safe everyone.  (239:365)
5-24: We were trying to find a place called Butterfly Woods natural area and this very friendly horse ran over to the fence and let us pet her and feed her some grass. There were some cool patterns in the sky above so I decided to get a shot.
May 2:  Leaf: It was windy here last evening when I was doing the POD and we found this bunch of leaves on the back deck when we out to get something.  THought I could make something of this so I brought it in to try.  Very late last night I had an idea when taking shots and this the result.   This is not a crop, but a full shot with my macro.  I lit the leave with one SB200 flash (small) from the rear at a 45 degree angle to the leave to get this effect.  The veining on the rear popped with this lighting. EXIF: D200 on a tripod ISO 125 1/160 sec, f/9.0 +1/3 EV single R1 SB200 flash
A beautiful monarch butterfly .  I photographed this colorful creature before he headed out on the long journey south.   Have a great day all...
October 10, 2009 - "Majestic Yellowstone Morning "    This two stitch image was shot our first full morning in Yellowstone.  The mountain splendor was highlighted in the early morning light.  Yellowstone is not a place for sleeping in!  We were on the road at 730am each morning we were in the park.

August 28, 2010 update - "Clouds Over Grapevine"  An 8x10 version of this photo won Best Of Show and 1st Place in the City Views category for the annual "What's Great In Grapevine" photo contest.  There were 106 amateur entries in the juried contest.  January 31, 2010 - "Last Train To Ft. Worth"  This was shot last Sunday at the historic Grapevine, Texas railroad station.  I was checking out a Lake Grapevine marina for photo ops but did not see anything I liked.  On the way home I noticed there were not many cars parked at the railroad station, so took the opportunity to shoot.That makes two Sundays in a row that my alternate venue has worked out :)  Tourist trains run from Grapvine to the historic Ft. Worth Stockyards.  footnote to Ed's comment - was shot HDR

December 5, 2009 Daily Photo.  The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree.   It was supposed to snow but it was raining. I took lots of close-ups but I think this best shows the scale. I'll make a "Christmas In New York" gallery when I get a chance.
