From the archives -- a trio of horses from the Varian Ranch near Santa Barbara. I like they way they're all in step with their left front hooves raised. (Nov. 2015)

Post for today: a close up of a group of little blue butterflies I saw at the edge of the river in Sly Park. I don't know if they were congregating prior to breeding or just sipping mineral rich water from the dirt. Usually, I see these flighty butterflies one by one, and it's super hard to get an image when they're on the wing. But this day, there were as many as 31 gathered together, and I was able to get super close.

Looks like this yellow-headed blackbird was stopping mid-flight so he could change direction and catch a little fly (follow the bird's line of site to see the dot of the fly). Vic Fazio wildlife area, northern California

After this White-faced Ibis (female) caught the crawdad, she softened it up by chomping on it several times, up and down the length of her bill, then tossed it up and swallowed it whole. Vic Fazio Wildlife Area, California, Saturday 4/2.

Story
Tagline
Nature photographer, wildlife enthusiast
Introduction
Location: Northern California, near Sacramento

I have loved taking photographs my whole life, but only started using a DSLR camera in 2010.

I'm trying to improve my technique and post processing skills. As part of that effort, my goal is to post at least one photo every day that I have internet access.

That means, that while I enthusiastically view, comment on, and +1 other people's photos, what I post is my own work, mostly of wildlife, flowers, and birds. Taking pics of family and friends is fun, too, but I usually share those privately.

Please feel free to comment on the photos. It helps to know what people like, and I welcome suggestions on how I could make the images better and more appealing.
