Getting  Ready to Party!
Grandson finds his lost pacifier and boy was he happy.Pacifier lost for days and suddenly Jack appeared with two and wouldnt let go all day. It was a cute site...
Working as a flight attendant took the picture on my flight from Dubai, UAE to Houston, TX.
Elephant Crossing - We sat in our safari vehicle and watched as over 100 elephants gathered and crossed the Sand River.  It was surreal.
Running Cheetah - On an afternoon game drive in Kruger National Park.  The last of a coalition of four brothers had fallen behind and ran to catch up.  I used a slow shutter to blur the motion.
Busy bee with pollen on its head in the Botanical Garden at the Akron Zoo in Akron Ohio.
Leopard Love - Early morning game drive found these two mating leopards emerging from the bush.
Leopard at Night - The first night drive of our South African safari found this leopard in a tree.  The guide's torch was our only light.
Lion Cubs - not even two weeks old.  It was amazing to see how gentle the lioness was with her young.
Kruger Sunset-  We knew the sunset would be epic when the clouds formed like this.  We searched for the right foreground and found this tree.  An elephant came by too but we couldn't get him sillhouet

Taken at Copper Mtn., Colorado. What a beautiful site. The duck took off just in time. :-)
Right after a glacier landing. Took off to fly around Mt. McKinley (Denali).
Alaskan Marmot beats me to the top! This was taken near the top of Mt. Healy, in Alaska. He's hard to see, but he is just relaxing on top of the mtn. top.
Calm before the storm at the lake.
Sunrise near Pearl Island, Washington..
