Montezuma's portal



Some very interesting roadway architecture along Highway One, Big Sur coast.

Actually it's known as the Rain Rocks Rock Shed and Pitkins Curve Bridge.

Who are you?

I've seen very few Red Foxes around my hometown all these years walking about. It seems they are very common closer to the Midwest and East Coast. The few that I've seen have been way back before I was in to nature photography. Since becoming a nature photographer, I was always wanting to find them again and try to get decent images. Recently I saw a Red Fox image from a local photographer and she was kind enough to give me a general location. Saturday morning I went out very early to the spot with hopes of finding one. Luck was very much with me and not only did I see one, but an adult with two kits!

This is one of the kits who came out of the bushes to check me out.

Sleepy head

Barn Owl fledgling, Ellwood Mesa Open Space, Goleta, CA.

I shot from several angles and this sleepy little Owl never budged. It was only about four feet off the trail and about 18" off the ground. I was tempted to try to wake it so It would move to a safer perch.

Spooked

I broke my own rule... but still got this image. Normally I try to carefully peek around the corner when approaching an open area. Here, I bumbled around the corner and spooked this Bobcat. Lucky for me, it paused and stared back at me before disappearing into the woods at the right.
