  • A memorable encounter with a Northern Pygmy-Owl deep in British Columbia’s Coast Mountains. Though scarcely larger than a can of coke, these little guys are formidable predators - at times taking prey far larger than themselves. It always brightens my day to hear their high pitched hoots carry through the mountain air at this time of year!

  • At Attention

While enjoying some delicious fast food in Gilbert, AZ, I looked out the window toward the vacant lot and noticed a short figure standing tall against the sole patch of green. I finished my cheap meal, grabbed my camera, then ran across the busy road as soon as I saw a safe opening in the traffic. 
I approached cautiously as not to disturb what was definitely a #burrowingowl . I quickly snapped this photo when I noticed the awesome composition opportunity that would last only seconds. 
There were a total of 3 owls dwelling in the abandoned vacant lot, but this was the one that “stood out” the most.

  • Sin duda el colibrí más espectacular de Costa Rica. Su pico es único y especializado para alimentarse de ciertas flores. Una joya más para proteger. 
White-tipped Sicklebill. Pico de Hoz.

  • Under construction. To watch this male Vitelline Masked Weaver building nests was very fascinating. It used different lengths and widths of grass during different stages of the construction. One type for the anchoring knots, one for the structural stuff, on for the rain cover and finally one for interior decoration. He built several nests and also displayed vigorously for females inspecting his work, investing a huge amount of energy and time into it all.
