I frequently check Thom Hogan’s web site for news about Nikon cameras. He does a pretty good job of keeping Nikon owners abreast of what’s happening.

Thom’s Article on Nikon Updates (D800, 810, D7100, D7200, others)

Nikon has firmware updates available for some of the older cameras to make them compatible with the AF-P lenses. Thom’s site explains the problems and fixes.

I have quite a bit of Stock Photography on the micro-stock web sites. After 11 years in business, I’ve accumulated an extensive catalog of wildlife and landscape images.

Some stock agencies calculate sales payments to photographers at the end of the month and if the total sales add up to a certain value, the photographer gets paid.

I always find it amusing when my total for the month approaches the minimum payout amount. Occasionally, I’ll have like $99.45 in sales and it’s the last day of the month.  I need one more sale to push it over $100 and get that check for the month to me.

Well, this month is no different. I got to the point that I needed one more sale to get me over the hump for February.

Here’s that sale….

Shiras Moose – Northern Colorado

Earning paydays, one moose at a time.

Seasonal cycles.

I consider October through February my primary season to photograph deer in Colorado. My first choice for locating both mule deer and white-tailed deer is Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge, though I have other locations along Colorado’s front range that I visit as well.

In Colorado, mating season is over, the bucks have begun dropping their antlers and I’ve wrapped up my seasonal deer photography for 2017-18.

I thought I would share a few of my favorite deer photographs from the past few months.

I’ll spare you the flowery descriptions and camera settings.

It’s all about the photos.
Thanks for visiting.

Great Blue Heron by Gary Gray
Great Blue Heron

It’s that time of year. The time of year when the Great Blue Heron begin showing up at the tree by the lake near me.

The lake is still frozen for the most part and this one Blue Heron has claimed a spot amongst the available nests.

The rest should begin filling in by mid-March.
