I dub thee Sir Foxalot, first knight of alfalfa

The San Francisco Chronicle ran one of my fox photos from last week on the sfgate.com Day in Pictures. I really love some of the humorous captions and headlines they come up with on the photo gallery.

Mr. Jindal and Mr. Brees

I was recently in Louisiana covering the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Looking through my photos I found a couple of shots which I like, but don't scream "oil spill!!".

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, left, meets New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees outside the Fort Jackson oiled bird cleaning facility in Buras, LA. I kept running into Mr. Jindal while covering the spill.
Girls at a roadside vegetable stand hold flowers near Buras, LA. The girls were hoping the New Orleans Saints would stop their team bus at the stand on their way to visit the oiled bird cleaning station at nearby at Fort Jackson.

A colorful little lizard climbs on a support post of a beach-side shelter in Grand Isle, LA. Check out this video slideshow with some of my best phosts from the spill.

Fox and alfalfa

A couple of red fox kits spend the afternoon in an alfalfa field near Roseburg on Thursday, June 17, 2010. The red fox is the most widespread and abundant species of fox, found in almost every single habitat in the Northern Hemisphere, from the coastal marshes of United States, to the alpine tundras of Tibetan Plateau.
A friend tipped me off to another fox den near Roseburg. I shot this with my 6oomm f/4 lens with a 1.4x extender.
Check out a slide show of my animal and nature photos. You can purchase limited edition framed prints from the gallery.

Deepwater Horizon oil spill a few more photos


I'm at the airport in New Orleans waiting to fly home to Oregon. Looking through my photos from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill I've found a few worth sharing.



A brown pelican flies past a small hatchery of royal terns on Queen Bess Island in Barataria Bay. The island has been heavily coated with oil from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Many of the young turns are stained with oil and wildlife officials are unsure of the effects on the birds.

Deepwater Horizon oil spill photos Barataria Bay

A stained oil boom floats offshore from Queen Bess Island in Barataria Bay near Grand Isle. The birds on the island have been hard hit by oil from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
I took a boat ride into Barataria Bay near Grand Isle today with a Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries crew. They were looking for oiled birds to capture and take to the rehab facility. They did find some oiled birds, but none were incapacitated enough to capture.
An oil coated plastic bottle floats near Queen Bess Island. Except that I was on the water to cover the worst oil spill in U.S. history, it was rather pleasant out on the Gulf.
A laughing gull flies past the shore of an unnamed island in Barataria Bay which has been heavily stained by oil from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

Workers use small nets to clean a beach in Grand Isle from oil from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Oil from the massive spill continue to wash a shore.

Deepwater Horizon oil spill photos

The bubble are almost beautiful.

Endangered sea turtles

An endangered Kemps Ridley sea turtle, which was rescued after being found coated with oil from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, is treated at the Audubon Nature Institute’s Center for Research of Endangered Species in New Orleans on Thursay, June 10, 2010. Since the start of the oil spill the center has received 32 endangered live oiled sea turtles. Six dead turtles have been found and are currently undergoing testing to see if the oil spill caused their deaths.
Many more turtles are surely not being recovered and are dying at sea.
My photo are represented by Zuma Press.
Back on Grand Isle the oil continues to hit the beaches. I found this stuck little hermit crab in and area closed to anyone but oil cleanup folks, but I shot it with my 600mm lens.
Some of the locals are very angry, but they don't seem to have lost their sense of humor.
