Mother Nature is the artist. I just collect the memories…

Backyard Macros

So…I’m in the process of moving out of my tiny-ass apartment, and in to a large house.  For the past 4 years, my daughter and I have shared a 2-bedroom apartment with a room mate, which means I have been sleeping on the couch for longer than I care to remember.  We are finally moving in to a large 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom house with my girlfriend and her daughter.  What a fantastic change!

However…this leaves me very little time to go out and shoot.  So…backyard “wilderness” will have to suffice…

One more great aspect of our new house…PLENTY of open habitat to explore.  I haven’t walked around too much to explore the property in depth, but I know there are about 1,000 acres or so of public land surrounding us.  I also know that I received 3 different rattlesnake removal calls from this area last year, and all 3 were very nice Panamint Rattlers.  Rarely are removal calls actually for rattlesnakes.  Most of the time, they are big gophersnakes, occasionally a kingsnake, and even a few garter snakes.  But in this area, they have all been actual rattlers, and that makes me very happy, contrary to what one might think, considering there are 2 young girls running around.  But my daughter is well trained in identification, and my girlfriend’s daughter is quickly learning…

Thanks for taking the time to look!
