Animal & Flower Photography
We had passed by this particular stretch of farmland numerous times over the years. We were caught by surprise the day the weathered fence post was accented by a clump of volunteer wild flowers.
Among The Branches
Following a snowstorm, this beautiful pair of Northern Cardinals spent most of the day perching on the branches of a tree on a hilltop clearing just beyond the woods to where they flew back and forth to their home. It was a very cold day, and we were amused at how the male bird fluffed his feathers against the cold.

A Struggle In The Elements
While traversing mountains in West Virginia after a fresh fallen snow, we encountered these two bucks engaged in a struggle for dominance. Although “rutting” can get aggressive, this day was more of a slow play. Their session lingered on and they seemed to not care how close we had accidentally wandered near before we noticed them. We suspect this was more play after establishing dominance as it was late January and long after several snowfalls. View OPTIONS to see framing options and the location of the hidden state.

The Gathering Place
This vibrant purple thistle makes a colorful gathering place for a variety of moths and bees. Although considered a common weed, these blooms brighten the fields of West Virginia. This image has been digitally painted from an original photograph and blended with an enhancing texture. View OPTIONS to see framing options and the location of the hidden state.
Animal & Flower Photography
If you love flowers and wildlife, our Animal and Flower Photography gallery is for you. We don’t call ourselves wildlife photographers – we usually aren’t quiet enough in the woods (we talk too much) and rarely capture animals in their natural habitat, but occasionally we get lucky and some wander into our shots.
The flower photography in this gallery is mostly digital paintings, inspired by the rich, vibrant colors of the petals.
