Winter Rarity--An Ermine

On this day, we saw two of these weasels, which are known as ermine in their winter camouflage. This one became the Animals Photo of the Day at Shutterbugs on January 20, 2005.It was also the Animals Photo of the Day at Photoshowdown February 24, 2005 and later became a finalist and a first place winner for the month. It was also one of the Pictures of the Year at the same site.

Sunrise at Garden of the Gods

We had a few inches of snow, so I headed down to Garden of the Gods to capture this composition. The sunrise became a Photo of the Day at Photoshowdown on January 16, 2005 and was a finalist in the Betterphoto January Contest.

The Mutants

A "normal" image of two bighorn sheep became this kaleidoscopic version. It looked just like mutants. The aberration was a Photo of the Day at Photoshowdown on February 17, 2005.

Intense Ferruginous Hawk

This resident of the Rocky Mountain Raptor Program looked so intense as it stretched its wings. The bird was the Animals Photo of the Day at Bestfoto on February 11, 2005.

Replicants

My 3-year-old grandson was a bundle of energy as he mastered the local playground. I wanted to convey this in a Photoshop-manipulated image. It was the Photo of the Day in the Open Category at Bestfoto on February 10, 2005.

Admirable

A regal-looking Mt. Evans mountain goat was the Photoshowdown Animals Photo of the Day on February 2, 2005, and on Bestfoto on January 26, and Shutterbugs on January 24.

Scar

I wanted to check out the new Predator Ridge exhibit at the Denver Zoo. This male lion was a Photoshowdown Photo of the Day on January 30, 2005.

Squirrel Friend

This little one was munching on peanuts at a local park. Her portrait was the Photo of the Day at Photoshowdown on January 28, 2005.

Dancers

Jonathon Borofsky's sculpture, entitled "Dancers." It is public art in front of the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. The figures are sixty feet high, and are engineering feats in themselves. They took the Still Life Photo of the Day at Shutterbugs on January 28, 2005.

Sentinels

Rock formations at Garden of the Gods guard Pike's Peak. The image was the Scenic Photo of the Day at Bestfoto on January 10, 2005.

Curly

The locals call this fox Curly, because of his ear that folds over. He is one of my favorite foxes to photograph and is very unskittish as you can see. He became the Animals Photo of the Day at Bestfoto on January 9, 2005.

Garden of the Gods

Everywhere you look at Garden of the Gods, the red rock formations present a new composition. This one was the Scenic Photo of the Day at Shutterbugs on January 6, 2005.

Balanced Rock

This is another of my favorite formations at Garden of the Gods, Balanced Rock. It is actually a gigantic behemoth, which looks smaller as it is framed in yet more formations. The photo took the Scenic Photo of the Day honors at Bestfoto on January 6, 2005 and at Photoshowdown on January 6, 2005.

Pueblo Bluebird

Bluebirds winter in the Pueblo, Colorado area. This one was the Animals Photo of the Day at Shutterbugs for January 2, 2005.

Sweet Fox

A young red fox paused for just a little while for me. It became the Animals Photo of the Day at Shutterbugs on December 29, 2004 and at Photoshowdown on January 9, 2005.

Snakeskin Texture

I was fascinated by this rattlensnake's scales. Taken at the Denver Zoo. The texture became the Macro Photo of the Day at Shutterbugs on December 27, 2004 and at Photoshowdown on January 4, 2005.
