New House

By Linda It’s a bit crazy, but Regis, Dart, and I moved to a new house a couple miles away. This house is on the marsh. It may be under water in the near future, but so will much of the rest of Florida….

Las Vegas

By Linda I recently went to the North American Nature Photographers Association 2019 Nature Photography Summit in Las Vegas. It was a great experience. I learned a lot and met amazing people in the nature photography industry. The best part was my son and…

Red-shouldered Hawk

By Linda This Red-shouldered Hawk was hanging around the backyard on a rainy day recently.  If he was hoping to catch birds at the feeder, it might have been better to be less obvious! I was conducting a Climate Watch count today and noticed…

Snail Kite

By Linda December 26, 2018 I got back to Florida yesterday.  I drove from Maryland to Florida on Christmas Day and the traffic was very light most of the way.  It was most astonishing to me to drive in the Washington, D.C. area and…

Leaky Mountains

August 12, 2018 Yesterday we headed to Glacier National Park.  We thought the smoky situation would get better after we got over the mountains in Idaho, but it got progressively worse as we neared the park.  We could barely see the mountains when we…

Trip Planning

August 10, 2018 We left the west side of the Cascades and headed across Washington state to Spokane.  It was very smoky the whole way.  When we watched the news, it said that the smoke from the California wildfires was entering Washington on both…
