Woodland Friends


After a 2-week break I’m back to finish posting images from my trip to New Hampshire’s North Country and White Mountain regions. A few weeks ago I led a photo tour in the Northern Catskills and this past week was spent with my family from Florida. The family enjoyed the New Jersey foliage and so did I. Expect to see lots of Autumn images from both the Catskills and locally in upcoming posts.

In pursuit of our New Hampshire moose subjects we had the pleasure to make some other wildlife acquaintances. The first friend we met was a Ruffed Grouse crossing the road. My friend and I had a rather intellectual discussion coming to the assumption that grouse cross the road for the same reason chickens do. Shortly after, we met a pair of Gray Jays, cute and friendly they flew and perched close by to check us out as we snapped away. On our last day of moose hunting we met a beautiful, Red Fox. He hung around long enough for us to capture some nice portraits and admire his stunning beauty. His cooperation helped to lessen the disappointment of not getting the award-winning moose images we had imagined.

  1. What a joy and privilege to able to meet these beautiful animals in nature, amazing photos! Truly wonderful, I love them!

  2. Well done Denise. Those are some foxy images. I especially love the last fox, with the soft fall foliage backround. If you could darken that light stick on the 1st and 3rd, it would be perfect.

    Done! Didn’t even see that there was a distraction until you pointed it out. Thanks!

  4. You’re quick. Much better.
    Let me know when you do another Catskill thing.

    Love the Red Fox image. You can practically feel how soft his fur is. It’s a great catch, Denise.
