Birding Texas Coast
4. Birding Texas Coast  (April 12-20,2023)
We picked an optimum time to bird the Texas coast, as we caught a lot of the spring migration. Birds make an incredible annual trek, flying more than 600 miles across the Gulf of Mexico, from the Yucatan to Texas.

We started near Corpus Cristi, seeing Attwater's Prairie Chickens and Aplomado Falcons, and worked our way up to High Island and Anahuac NWR. There are many refuges, including federal, state and privately-owned sanctuaries.

7. Best of Bosque del Apache  (ongoing)
The Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge is always a surprise and a treat. You never know what the weather will do or what birds and animals you'll see. Sometimes I go hoping to catch the full moon rising over the fields and ponds only to find it obscured by clouds. The clouds might make for a colorful sunset. It is best to stay open to whatever nature might spring on you.

19. Kentucky Three Day Event  (April 21 -25, 2021)
This year's Land Rover Kentucky Three Day Event (LRK3DE) was held without spectators due to covid19 but that didn't make it any less thrilling. In fact, it was a boon for photographers and possibly even for some of the riders and horses as there was less distraction. There were many first-timers at this prestigious competition as well as past winners and the country's best riders.

This is a selection out of the thousands of images I shot. I hope the pictures tell the story of "the best weekend all year".

In part because so few international tourists were visiting Kenya in  2020 due to coronavirus concerns, we decided to go in order to support the work of the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and other conservation organizations. We were safe and treated like royalty, and happily for us, we had the national parks and camps to ourselves.

Kenya is a world-class destination and tourism fuels the protection of wildlife, so consider a trip when you are able.

If you ever wondered whether there is a better way to create a connection with your horse (or dolphin, gerbil, dog, llama, rat, zebra) then you need to investigate Positive Reinforcement Training. There seems to be no problem that can't be solved, or at least greatly improved, with this method, and it can be integrated with whatever it is you do with your horse. Am I a convert? You betcha.

I learned about this unique band of wild horses that live in the Tonto National Forest, near Scottsdale, Arizona and began following them on Instagram @srwhmg. The mustangs are adapted to the desert climate and survive by utilizing the Salt River for water, food (aquatic plants) and heat relief. They are incredibly beautiful and I made a trip to see them for myself.

We saw twice as many birds as we could identify, so we will just have to return and practice with our field guides. Highly recommended is "Birdwatching in Colombia" by Pablo Florez.

All bets were off at the start of competition. There was a large entry of international stars, looking to do well in advance of the 2010 Alltech World Equestrian Games. The riding and the results were fabulous for the sport of eventing. Lucinda Fredericks took the win for Australia on Headley Britannia. Bettina Hoy of Germany was second on her own Ringwood Cockatoo. Third place went to Buck Davidson of the US on the Segals' My Boy Bobby.

102. Zambia   (September 2007)
A visit to Zambia and Botswana exceeded my every expectation. The people, the landscapes and the animals were fascinating, and the time spent getting there was richly rewarded.

The daily struggle for survival that we witnessed is a reminder to appreciate every moment we have on Earth and to do all we can to tread lightly here.
