Ruth took this one when the three of us went on a short hike in Glacier Park (the Lower MacDonald Creek oxbow hike). Normally I hate to further reduce the quality of my site by posting pics with me in them, but I thought this one might be worth it.

Eating her greens

There just aren't many foods that this girl doesn't like. As soon as she gets her teeth those veggies had better watch out.

Ruth & Sophia at Two Medicine

Ruth & Sophia at Two Medicine

Taken at a picnic we had at Two Medicine in Glacier. It was windy and cold and Sophia wasn't the happiest little girl, but some of the pictures still came out awfully cute.

Moose Interrupted

This handsome fellow was trying to have a peaceful super at the beaver pond, when he was rudely interrupted by paparazzi.

Beautifully Pregnant

Ruth and I were having a little fun taking some pics in the light of the sunset. She's 8 1/2 months along here and we figured we'd better take some more pregnancy pictures before our time runs out. I especially like this one because I think it captures the duality of being sexy and motherly at the same time.

Breaking in the new Fish-Eye lens

Breaking in the new Fish-Eye lens

Somehow I'm not too sure Ruth is going to be very happy with me when she sees that I've posted this pic. But it is just too good not to share. [btw, this was a Fish-Eye lens, she doesn't normally look THAT goofy. ;-) ]

This is why you should never play king of the hill with a cat.

Taken from my front window with my macro lens. If you look at the full size you'll notice that Larry (the cat) has a bloody lip. He got this from a rather traumatic run in with two very enthusiastic Boston Terriers who'd come out with a contractor to do some work. Poor Larry cowered for a day or so after that anytime he heard a noise, and was only coaxed out of his post traumatic stress with some special fancy chicken canned kitty food Ruth got special for him as comfort food.

Enthusiasm

Enthusiasm

One of the fist of our 2008 calves. As you can see he's an energetic little cuss. Just after this was taken he got confused and thought the pick-up was his mom. He kept trying to poke his head into a wheel-well looking for milk, and wouldn't give up until we drove away and his real mom started mothering him.

Afternoon Apple Pie-New Macro Lens

Afternoon Apple Pie-New Macro Lens

The macro lens doesn't make everything look better, Ruth's pie already looked that good, but it sure does make close-up pics like this look delish!

New Macro Lens-Amaryllis

New Macro Lens-Amaryllis

Just got a wonderful new macro lens for my Nikon. After playing with it for an hour or so, taking pictures of everything that will hold still long enough, I'm pretty much awestruck.

This is a pic of a flower (Amaryllis I think) that ruth and I were given some years ago. It generally blooms sometime from December to February and lightens up an otherwise monochrome Montana winter.
