Some California Photos 
(M)(L)Long-tailed weasel Click through for a few pictures from California, mostly from around Mendocino. A few are from the Petaluma area and the Big Basin redwood forest. The long-tailed weasel (not a ferret!) is from half-moon bay.
300mm at the zoo 
(M)(L)Madagascar Panther Chameleon I recently bought myself a late Christmas present: a Canon 300mm f/4L IS lens. Today I played hookey and went to the Omaha zoo to try it out.
Frankfurt Palmengarten 
(M)(L)Goslings sleeping Here are a few of the things that caught my eye on our second visit to the Frankfurt Palmengarten (botanical garden). The photos that were the most fun to take were the goslings; I was surprised that the parents (who were right nearby) didn't take much notice of me, even when I got within 2-3 feet of their babies! The little ones barely noticed me either. I took 200 images of them alone, so it was hard picking just 3 to show here.
Henry Doorly Zoo 
(M)(L)Butterfly We recently took a trip to the Omaha zoo. This was my first trip to the new butterfly exhibit with my 105mm macro lens, and I'm pleased with some of the shots I got. We also stopped in the Night World, Aquarium, and Jungle.

Sandhill Cranes 
(M)(L)Cranes in the air Here are a few photos from our trip to see the migrating Sandhill Cranes
Photos from my recent trip to Canada 
Here are some photographs from my recent trip to British Columbia, along with Ingrid and her folks. We first went to Victoria, visiting several nearby beaches and the Buchant gardens. Later we went to Whistler, a ski village north of Vancouver. I took only a few photos there. Finally, we spent the last day and a half in Vancouver itself, but I didn't take any pictures. Ingrid has more photos from Whistler and Vancouver, perhaps she'll put them online someday.
Another day at the zoo 
(M)(L)Pufferfish, in un-puffed state I visited Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo today after dropping Michael off at the airport. Here are a few of the photos I took.
