Many attempts at catching a good photo of a cardinal, usually out in the desert. Not seen very often in our area and they are usually on the move makes for poor photos. Success as one landed out my desk window. I keep a camera next to me for the ever evolving appearances across my vision of the front yard/neighborhood.

I have seen this owl on or near this hillside 4 or 5 times recently, on my trail runs. I have been able to get closer to him/her on each occasion.

Was not expecting to see a tagged deer on my trail run a few days ago. Guessing it is a GPS tracker and there is a numbered tag on the ear. There was a second deer that was also tagged. He stood in a perfect spot to highlight the beautiful Catalina Mountains (Catalina, Arizona)

There is a den of foxes on my running route in The Dalles, Oregon. At least five young ones. I believe they are Red Foxes.

Bunnies are abundant in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Very abundant! They were prominent on the University of Victoria campus. They have transported many of them to a bunny sanctuary in Texas due to the numbers and their closeness to the highway system.

This photo is from Scott Harris during a No Limits kayak expedition in Sitka, Alaska. I was capturing video at this point. We were in our kayaks watching this young brown bear for many minutes. Video is in my film “Alaskan Waters” (film section).

In the semi-wildlife file, the nearest bull is stuck in the cattle guard. We came across him while on a 4WD over the Kelly Grade (intense!) and winding down another 4WD road until we came across this scene. We did go back up till we reached another route and cell service to call the BLM. We did receive a call later on to inform us that the bull was rescued.
