A touch of color over Hollow Rock Creek


















After my bike ride last night I stopped by Hollow Rock Creek and caught this subtle yet beautiful sunset over the meadow.  The spring peeper frogs are out in full force and their song was deafening in this location!

Swamp Tea


















Labrador Tea or "Swamp Tea", as it is known to some, is a beautiful plant but one that I find very difficult to photograph. While out and about in the rain yesterday I came across a huge area that was full of it and just begging to be photographed.  The forest is so beautiful on a rainy day!  I set up my tripod very low to the ground to get this angle of the tea and also show a hint of the trees in the background.

Mother's Day Treat


















Here's a throwback to Mother's Day 2016 and the incredible aurora storm that graced our sky on this most special of days.  Hope all the mother's out there are having a wonderful day!

Four Fox Kits


















Here's another photo of the fox kits I saw earlier this week.  There was a 5th kit just outside the frame, off doing his own thing while these 4 climbed all over each other at the entrance to the den.  So hard to get a good shot of all of them together!  They are usually running around so quick they don't gather together like this but for just a few moments at a time.  Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there :-)

May Sunset, Northern Minnesota


















The clouds sure were pretty the other night as the sun was setting!

Siblings


















The spring babies are starting to show up!  These fox kits were being adorably cute yesterday as they played and cuddled at the entrance to their den.

Reliable Rainbow


















Grand Portage State Park, MN - When the water is high and it's a clear, sunny day you know there's going to be a fantastic rainbow at High Falls! (or two... see the double rainbow?  It's faint, but it's there!)
