Greetings everyone! I’ve been working on a couple of big posts lately and been out shooting nearly every free minute, so I’ve fallen a week behind. That said, I’m going to share a few of my latest images of West Tiger Mountain (which is about twenty minutes from my house) with you here. I’ve got lots to say, but I’ll save it for the upcoming next few posts. Enjoy! Click each image to enlarge!
West Tiger Mountain Stream
This beautiful, fast-moving stream flows down from the heights of West Tiger Mountain just east of Renton, Washington where it joins the Raging River about a half-mile downstream.
Douglas’ Squirrel (Tamiascurus douglasii)
This small and noisy dark squirrel was heard long before I spotted it in the trees. After about a thirty minute hunt, I gave up – only to have it appear twenty feet in front of me, perfectly posed for this image.
