An American Avocet walks and dips as it feeds in a shallow pond. Last time we were in Las Vegas the avocets were nowhere to be seen as they had migrated elsewhere for the winter. Now, we are both back, and judging by the behavior I have witnessed, little ones won’t be too far away!

As things are starting to green up with the arrival of Spring, I am ever hopeful I will see more of these beautiful birds. This male Western Tanager made a single visit to our backyard feeders a few years ago and I was able to get a couple of shots off before it flew away, never to return. It remains the only one I have seen to date. Maybe this year?

Thanks for your views and comments - they are greatly appreciated!

We just recently completed our first trip to Yellowstone National Park and we were both awestruck by the diversity and beauty of pretty much everything we encountered. In this image I tried to capture the variety of colors and textures of the Grand Prismatic Spring on the park's west side. We had hiked the boardwalks around the spring but really we were unable to comprehend its size and complexities until we hiked above the area and were able to look down on it from a higher rocky point. I left a lone dead lodgepole pine in the left foreground to give a perspective of how big this spring really is.

Thanks for your view and comments! They are alway much appreciated!

I get a deep sense of inner peace when I see a beautiful bird such as this roseate spoonbill feeding and preening in a glassy surfaced lagoon, bathed in early morning light.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Thanks for your views and comments!

Everyone shoots the famous Oxbow Bend in the Tetons with Mount Moran in the background (see first comment box). But if you were to pan to the left, this is the view you see. The hillside lit up in a spectacular fashion and I just couldn't resist taking this image.

Thank you so much for your views and comments - I so appreciate your taking the time!
