 Tweeted these pups a while back, but here I'll make 'em BIGGER.

Skipping around a bit...

This fox's time is up,
but its tail is still beautiful…
Seems appropriately framed: the fallen.

Sweet gum, which, tho' I know them from San Diego,
are actually NATIVE to Texas.
This one was GIANT. And gorgeous.

So, 2014…

Not big on entire year summaries, pardon.

I MAY go to a conference later this month.
A wildlife biology conference.
And possibly help recruit biologists for our company.

If so, should I dress like a corporate head hunter?
Put on high heels & wear lots of perfume & makeup?

Or, wear 100% field gear,
including oversized safety suits for inclement weather,
and carry a snake stick & wear gaiters?

Really, though, I think we should print out LARGE shots of
some of the BEAUTIFUL places we've done work,
and the SUPER cool wildlife "we've" seen.

That's the way to a wildlife biologist's heart…
at least, mine.




  1. The snake stick regardless of outfit.

    Those photos are marvelous. And so many shells!

  2. If you were in high heels and perfume, I would ignore you as a recruiter. The snake stick would definitely get my attention. Since you just came from Texas I say think "clear eyes, full heart, can't lose" when you are getting dressed for this important assignment.

  3. Congrats on doing your 30 day photo challenge! And I'd go with the field outfit, definitely.

  4. Just wanted to say that I really like your pelican shot! Nice composition with an uncluttered background that allows us focus fully on the charming fellow :)
