I just had to show you this photo of a Belted Kingfisherthat I came up with Saturday. Cruising along the river bank of the Spring Creek, I spotted him in a tree on the opposite bank, about 125 yards away. As I took a closer look through my binoculars, I realized that he had an enormous fish in it’s bill. I think he was contemplating on what he was going to do with it. After getting a few shots, I briefly looked away, and then he was flying down the river. I don’t know if he still had the fish or if he had dropped it.
Here are a few more or less humorous images from the past. I will let you enjoy the captions. First this Northern Mockingbird.
This image of the two Prairie Dogs appeared twice in separate issues of National Wildlife Magazine.
These, parked for the summer, dueling snowplows were photographed at Traverse City, Michigan on a visit there a few year ago.
This Mexican Ground Squirrel seemed to not like me intruding on his meal.
Wild ride at a Professional Bull Riders event in San Angelo, Texas.
I got lucky and nailed this frog at the instant that he grabbed the butterfly.
I hope you enjoyed a bit of my weird humor today. Click on any image to see an enlargement.
