Southern California is in a severe drought so wildflowers have been non-existent. But, we are supposed to have a strong El Nino this winter which would mean lots of winter rain. Maybe spectacular wildflower displays like this one from northern LA County will return. CROSS YOUR FINGERS. comments appreciated.
Enjoy, Dave

Hi everyone:
First, thanks to all of you who recently added me to your circles.
I just published an article, with images, on DPReview that I thought you might like - the link is below. Many of you know I have had some medical issues and have not been doing much photography for a couple of years so thought these images might be fun for you to check out.
Stay well - and keep shooting
Dave

Here's an image from a sequence of an amazing wildlife encounter I had in south Texas. I was photographing a green jay (cyanocorax yncas) at a water source when it was struck in the neck by a western diamondback rattlesnake (crotalus atrox) - you can just see a small part of one fang sticking in the bird's neck. This image was taken about a minute after the bird was struck and you can see it is starting to collapse.
This is a completely wild image
Comments appreciated.

Hi Everyone:
Here's an image of a young Siberian tiger - one of many tigers that found a permanent home and care at the Wildlife Waystation - a wildlife rescue facility in southern California I have been associated with since 1987.
Comments appreciated.
