This was captured in the wash just below our rv this morning.  The bobcat has been around this year, I have seen it a few times, but yet to come to either water hole for some reason. I keep a trail cam on both my waterholes, but have a third camera that I move around to see where things are coming and going.

For the first time in years, I’m offering a Kenai Fjords National Park photo tour! In fact I’m offering two of them, and I have 1 spot remaining on one of the trips remaining available.

This trip has it all! A helicopter photo flight with the doors off and an extended landing high in the mountains. A paddle among the huge Icebergs of Bear Glacier Lagoon. Four full days / nights on a 65 foot yacht with a total of only four guests – we will be spending out days and evenings in the most amazing landscapes, not to mention all the wildlife including whales, puffins otters and eagles. This trip is timed around the peak of the killer whale viewing season. Plus, first rate lodging, Alaska Railroad and so much more. Follow the link for all the details.

Can you find the bat?

Can you find the bat?  This was a bit of a lucky photo.  Typically to capture bats you need a really fast camera trigger setup and this is usually accomplished by having the shutter open, and having the trigger connected directly to the flashes.  Here, since I’m photographing slower moving mammals, I have the trigger connected to the camera.  The bat should have been long out of the frame, but it must have circled back or something. Nice surprise!
