Evening Encounter

I love the fall evenings in the high desert, silently the mule deer start moving about, it is a time of romance...

Heralds of Spring,

In early spring male pheasant take on their resplendant colors, so rich, especially against the late snow. Our farm here in New Zealand has a huge pheasant population now that we have controlled the introduced predators, such as stoats, so I have ample opportunity to study them close at hand, not in the snow however......
