Comma Butterfly Of Oregon

I have my spots I stop at up in the Cascade Mountains, well most places I have my set spots I have had history of photographing the wildlife. This spot tends to have species of butterflies stop to get drinks, never know what I am going to photograph! Just know I am going to get a few different species!

This day was no different. The Cascade Mountains has plenty of large things to see, such as the birds of prey. What most folks just do not take the time to see is the smaller species of wildlife found in the Cascade Mountains!

Some folks keep horses, others keep buffalo

The leader of this pack determined by the quick observation I had was the one who was caught rolling around in images 8-9-10. What that one said went!

Balancing Rocks of Oregon

admin Mon, 07/25/2016 - 17:23

 At one time this was just a local place.
Not to many people have been there. Now of course it has a sign and progress has moved in.
There are other spots that have these balancing rocks, some day I would like to hike to the spots we have found.
These remind me of a giant who came in and set up his house the way he wanted it.
I took these gosh, a year ago?

Mule Deer Doe and Fawns

admin Fri, 07/22/2016 - 15:24

Mule Deer is what you will commonly see here on this side of the Cascade Mountains here in Oregon. The Mule Deer are a big species of deer here in the USA and do blend right in with their surroundings.

Seeing a Doe with more then one fawn is a neat thing to see! The fawns being so cute and all with their spots! These two look rather young.

At this moment they all just stop and look at us for they are curious too! Then like a flash they are off on the run!

It is the time of the year to see the young wildlife!

The Ochoco Mountains is knows for the wildlife, big and small. Flying or running, or as you who have been following my photography for the years I have been doing this, the wildlife may just be grazing and/or resting.

On this day I was doing my chores, you know the domestic goddess stuff I am not all that good at? When I happened to hear a bird call out. The bird was right outside the door so it was a loud call the bird was making!

Scrub Jay Playing With Food

Meet the Scrub Jay that this article will be featuring! I ran across these images as I was in my archive on another project, however going through the series I just had to laugh and it might bring a smile your face as well?

The feature scrub jay I said on twitter was a, "she", though going through the series this looks and acts more like a juvenile playing with it's food!

Assassin Fly Robber Fly

Meet the Robber Fly or Assassin Fly. This one was following me around in a part of the High Desert we were at. Guy and the dogs of course did not see it, so when Guy asked what I was doing I told him what I found.

This rather large insect seamed to give off that don't mess with me attitude. I really do not know how to explain it. This insect had nothing to worry about I had no intentions of picking it up.

Banded Woolly Bear Caterpillars

We came across many of these caterpillars feeding on Nettle and some other plants. I believe it was stinging nettle, however the plant it was feeding on was not the subject I was photographing.
