Forest F’Owl
Yesterday I was spending a nice family day/Memorial Day with my wife and kids and we went for a late afternoon/early evening hike through the old-growth forest around Deep Lake in Nolte State Park …

Copper Ladies’-Tresses http://ow.ly/C3hTs The flowers of the copper ladies’-tresses have the most unusual metallic sheen, something I’ve never seen in my life. These tiny flowers are about 4-5 millimeters wide, and macro photography was needed here with a ring flash.


Cuteness Overload!

Fishing Spider http://ow.ly/C3hLs Huge fishing spider carefully photographed in the Fakahatchee Strand. These guys can get aggressive and do bite hard!

Eat up


Just did my car’s brakes in the dark. Of course I screwed it up and had to do it twice (got my pads mixed up because I couldn’t see what I was doing very well). Got my money’s worth out of the last set…. they were worn down to dust!


Funny! I’ll never listen to Soundgarden the same way again.

The Oregon Coast is renowned for its natural beauty, sea stacks, and gorgeous sunsets. I caught this rock formation in the late afternoon “golden light” and focused on the interplay between light and shadow.
