Puffin Den

Common Murre 2

I’ve published a Common Murre from the western seaboard here before, but due to the expression on the birds face, I  just couldn’t resist publishing this handsome devil, a shot I took recently at a […]


Springtime Fox

Here’s a couple of shots from a few years back of a beautiful black morph red fox. This isn’t the same fox as we met in ‘Black Vixen’, but that post is a good article […]

Salmon Surfing…

…Bald eagle style! Not a springtime shot, but one I thought you’d like to see nonetheless. This immature bald eagle, whilst blending in so well with its background, had managed to catch itself a pink […]



Nai’a is the Hawaiian name for these spectacular showboaters the Spinner Dolphin. I came across a pod whilst out on a boat trip on a visit to Maui a few years back and when they […]


Bear Buddies

Here we see a couple of good buddy bears that we’ve seen a few times – Junior and JJ. During their formative, sub-adult years these two bears, although not siblings were often seen hanging out […]
