Sunshine

We went to the park to take a few practice shots to prepare for her upcoming prom pictures. I love this one.

Petulant Child

This is what happens when a nasty little beast does not get its candy.

Kidding, but it WAS funny…

The King

Actually, he was not acting the role very well. He was in a pissy mood, and walked around sniffing the grass and snarling.

Attack!!!

This goose not not attacking me. He was attacking on my behalf! I made friends with him by honking at him when he honked at me. He proceeded to come and follow me, and would chase off anyone that got close.

Contemplation

This Gibbon looks deep in thought.

Descended from Dinosaurs

Scientists tell us that modern birds are the most direct descendants of the dinosaurs, and after looking at this Cassowary, it’s not hard to believe.

Quiet Moment

Just a moment of serenity before continuing on doing what peacocks do…

And with this post, I am now caught up on my project. I do not intend to get that far behind again…whew!

Irish Dancer

I love Irish Dancing, and this young lady pulled off a wonderful dance. It’s amazing how much talent there was at that show…

I Dreamed a Dream

This beautiful young lady took the stage, and when her mouth opened, she had the voice of an angel. After belting out a stunning rendition of I Dreamed a Dream from Les Miserable, half the audience was in tears, and the other half was just slack-jawed. What an amazing talent. I had the good fortune to be sitting next to her father, and I made sure he had one of my cards so he could see the shots of his daughter blowing everyone away.

Wanted

Jenna has always been a bit more solitary and introverted than her big sibling, and it just blew me away to see her on stage in front of a whole auditorium full of people, playing the guitar and singing Wanted by Hunter Hayes. She absolutely killed it, and I was so proud of her I could hardly stand it. And that huge smile at the end…wow. But that was just dust making my eyes water…really…

Mt. Carmel Tunnel

This odd looking hole in the side of a sheer rock face in Zion Canyon is actually a window in the Mt. Carmel-Zion tunnel.

Nature Calls

One of the friends of the deer from the previous post also passed by, but not before stopping for a moment to answer nature’s call.

Doe Eyes

I was out shooting at RMA, and this mule deer doe came strolling by. She seemed utterly unconcerned at my presence, and after a glance or two, just wandered off into the woods.

First Fish

I was walking on the floating bridge on St Mary Lake, and as I passed by, this little girl managed to catch her first fish. She was SO excited…until, that is, her dad made her hold it for a photo. Even then, she was still smiling.

Dignified

Okay, after the last post, I thought I should post a bit more flattering shot of my little prairie dog pals.
