Pueo.  The Guardian Project is still going.  Love working with our Hawaiian Short-Ear Owls.  Planning to photograph the Pueo on the other islands soon.  Want to link up with other photographers there too.  Message me if interested.  Shootz.

Went out last night to photograph the milkyway.  As always a last minute decision to go and scrambling to find a place.  Wanted to practice creating a clean and less noise (grain) milkyway.  It was super cold.  My fingers and toes was not happy with me at all.  That’s what I get for not being prepared and being in “SLIPPAHS”. 😂🤙🏼

Koa’e kea (Hawaiian White-tail Tropic Bird).
.
A new challenge for me to photograph this bird.  Not easy at all.  Smaller, faster, and they are out there over the ocean.  Will find away to try and get good images.
.
Does anyone know where on the Big Island that you can get fairly close?  Today was my first try with @bobnims

This Pueo was right in front.  Wasn’t sure how long it was there but it blended well with the Mamane trees watching me.

Lava ocean entry archives.  I’m getting so out of shape not doing these brutal hikes out in the lava fields.  I am sure to suffer even thinking about it.
