Hermit shack on the Snake River near Celebration Park. Nampa, Idaho.

 

I'm not really sure what the story is for this little rock shack. It sits down on Halverson Bar along the Snake and is about a 3 or 4 mile hike from either Celebration Park or the Swan Falls Dam, Just depends on if you want to hike upstream or down.

 

The large boulders are called melon gravel around here and were deposited by the Bonneville flood.

 

I would take a guess that the shack was constructed around the turn of the 20th century. There are a few other foundations of other shacks dotting the river bank as well.

Sunrise in Texas City a few months back, caught this Hermit Crab leaving the safety of the water to search the beach for a shell, my presence laying on the beach with it kept it alert.

Thanks so much for the visit!

Thanks for visiting!

Sorry for yet another self portrait, I'm being a total hermit just now up to my eyes in paint and glue trying to get everthing finished, but anyway just to let you know I found another venue last minute so the exhibition is back on!!! Thanks for all your kind words and encouragement it kept me going when I felt like giving up xx

an interesting image, IMHO, looks more like a painting than a photo. Vancouver, B.C.

A life bird for me.

 

This is only about 30 minutes from where my Mom lives, and I was always intrigued to search here for this bird. I didn't know where to go, but just drove up a forest road, rolled down the window, and lo and behold I heard its song nearby. Certainly made my day.

Another Ecuadorian Bird.

 

Notice the curvature of his bill. This is another adaptation of nature evolving to utilize the most productive eating utensil for the nectar of the flowers they forage. Also notice the crazy ISO!

 

This long-curved-billed hermit forages low in the interior of humid and wet forest undergrowth, searching for nectar and arthropods. Males gather at leks for part of the year where they make a squeaky, repeated tseep numerous times each minute. Both sexes have long, white central tail feathers and males boast a bright rufous-orange rump.

***Ya know I have been getting some very nice compliments on recent posts relative to my Ecuador and

Washington trips. I must give a lot of credit to my buddy

Ly Dang. As it was Ly that did all the planning and knowledge based decisions where we could be the most productive etc etc. And he really help me getting prepared in the way of setting up a multi flash system. We spent hours together trying out different techniques and settings to get the best results. Ly Dang is a magnificent photographer and great human being.***
