Common sight to see deer crossing through front yards out where I live.
This lone buffalo still looks large even considering his distance from me and the surrounding landscape.
The deer the cruise across my property will either go under the fence or over it. This doe happens to be pregnant and chose to jump it rather than scraping her belly along the ground.
Caught this guy mid flight after taking off from a tree near my house.
We had 3 baby Cardinals hatch from a nest next to the house this Spring (2018). This one managed to get up into a shrub and off the ground shortly after leaving the nest.
When there isn’t a tree tall enough to scout for prey, use a pole instead.
Believe it or not there are three baby cardinals crammed in to that nest on the side of my house. They are approximately a week old here.
These chicks are only a day or two old. In a week or two they would become fully feathered and leave the nest.

These two whitetail does took separate paths when crossing this fence.
This owl looks hungover to me
My in-laws had 11 ducklings hatch this Spring (2018) near their house. Since I love ducks I had to go take some photos. These two apparently had a disagreement.

Early one morning I snapped a few photos of this pregnant whitetail doe foraging on our property.
These are large birds even when they are just a chick.
I went down to the Upper Provo River while I was in Utah this Spring (2018) and got to take some action shots of mallards. Hard to believe these ducks would stay around such fast moving water.
These two girls caught me trying to take a picture of them. I believe both of them are pregnant, I know the one in the front is for sure.
Hard to imagine it is comfortable to traverse this palm with all those thorns
This male cardinal just chased off another bird that was attempting to crash the nest with his offspring in it.
I have more rabbits than I can count running around our property.

Lake Blanche is one of three lakes in the Twin Peaks Wilderness Area and at the high altitude where these lakes are live what is known as a Marmot. They look like large squirrels and will make a whistle sound when they are alarmed.
Ran into a lot of these little guys while hiking in the Wasatch National Forest in Utah.
These two girls were hesitant to cross from the safety of the woods into this clearning, but eventually did.
I caught this whitetail doe chewing with her mouth open in my back pasture.
This female North American Cardinal looks over her newly hatched chicks from the cover of a shrub in my front yard.
This is one of the many does that cross my property in Magnolia and this time of year she happens to be pregnant.

On the middle Provo River the water was much calmer and there was more tall grass to cover me while I snuck up on some ducks. This drake must have caught sight of me and took off.

An area of the National Forest that recently underwent a prescribed fire to clear the understory out. The smell a week or two after was absolutely amazing.

This was a first for sure and yes, I did catch some fish (2 trout to be exact). Wasatch National Forest – Twin Peaks Wilderness Area
Nature is slowing taking this bridge over
I have had these boots since I was in the Marine Corps. They topped mountains in California, ran through streets in Iraq and now have helped carry me up to Lake Blanche in Utah. I will never get rid of these boots.

Thankfully my wife yelled at me to come inside at the right time and our horse looked her way so I could grab this shot.
You can’t beat living out in the country when you are presented with views like this.
Probably one of my favorite photos I have ever taken
