    Awesome shot! In my book, one of the coolest birds in nature along with the Peregrine and Golden Eagle. Grew up on the Delaware River and had several local Kingfishers that used amaze me with the size fish they could catch/fly off with.

    I usually see a lot of wildlife when out walking the dogs. Stumbled on a nest of owlets last summer on the desert. Not so cute but kind of cool.

    I can't take credit for the photo - it's from the bird ID website I stumbled upon trying to figure out what it was. Just crappy iPhone pics is all I got. Very cool bird though. I watched him for a solid hour plucking fish out of the water left and right.
    I still call it The Jake.

    I figured I would give you credit but that it might be off the web. Efficient little guys for sure, I think they catch just for fun sometimes.

    Running deer in the field behind my house from two winters ago. They are out there almost every evening just as the light gets to low to get a decent photo.
    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    Belted Kingfishers need sponsors too?

    The goat led the pitch? Doesn't seem sporting.

    We get a lot of moose in our neighborhood from late April through Oct. The rut is starting now, and as soon as the snow flies, they'll all move to their winter grounds. It was a decent year for moose (a few less than the last couple of years). Unfortunately, we've lost at least 10+ due to vehicle strikes on the interstate this year.

    Here's our latest sighting... Mom and baby in our front yard.

    Wingspan of about 6 feet when it flew above me in a forest. Was not expecting something that big to fly near me, mainly because the forest canopy was thick. I was worrying more about the bear my dog just got done chasing at the time and flinched pretty good. Great Grey Owl.

    After my lame attempt at humor, I actually spotted a coyote last night traipsing across a fairway of the local muni. Too fleet afoot for my Iphone pic, but a pretty impressive sighting for these parts. Pro-tip: soak your Pro-V's in wolf urine before you play to prevent varmints from absconding with your balls.

    Was out for a little stroll down by the creek & almost stepped on this. Amazingly camouflaged. It never moved. Mom must have been nearby, I quickly moved on.

    It looks cold. You should have rescued it.
