A gila woodpecker coming in for a landing.  I was having some fun yesterday with the Olympus Pro Capture mode which allows you to buffer images, and the go back in time for the perfect position.

A Curve-billed thrasher from Monday night at the Desert Photo Retreat.  One of the complaints I hear from bird photographers regarding 4/3 systems like my Olympus is that you can’t get those silky smooth out of focus backgrounds.  I say non-sense!

A Pyrrhuloxia last night from the lower blind at the Desert Photo Retreat.  I have been so busy with guest and projects lately, that I haven’t had any time for my own photography.  Last night I got a chance to enjoy that beautiful light in the lower blind!

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.
