Porcupines: Moving Slow and Steady 

Posted on by Kathie Fife

Yesterday I came across some tracks that had me a little baffled. The deep, light, and fluffy snow made it challenging trying to find a clear outline of a foot. My first guess was opossum. And that guess was based on years of observing wildlife moving about in the same tract of land for more […]

Cruising the Wild Informational Highways

Posted on by Kathie Fife

The woods are an informational highway. Tune in! There are fascinating stories to be shared. Mid January, and this is my first adventure out into the woods. The conditions have been very cold and with just a few inches of snow, and the top layer of thick ice making it crunchy and very cumbersome for […]

Conjuring up a Shaker Witch

Posted on by Kathie Fife

Halloween is my favorite holiday.  It’s an opportunity to just dress up, have some fun, and go to the Ghost Encounters event at Canterbury Shaker Village. The photo opps during the event are really cool, too. The light at this time of year allows you to capture some interesting effects. Below is an example of […]

Searching for Herps

It is a much safer way to experience a part of history we only read about in books and see […]

My original vision for the day’s photo shoot was to create a soft image of the loon in a recognizable setting, with the rocks and mountain in the background. […]

Attraction: Like Butterflies on Scat

Posted on by Kathie Fife

When we think of butterflies, we envision them on beautiful flowers in our gardens, or on wildflowers in meadows bursting with a rainbow of color. We think of butterflies as pure, clean, delicate, feminine-like critters. But, butterflies are also attracted to minerals in scat, much as they are attracted to the nectar in flowers. The […]

Stone Faces in the White Mountains of NH

Posted on by Kathie Fife

The Old Man of the Mountain, New Hampshires’s state symbol, fell on May 3, 2003. But if you look closely as you hike through the white mountains you will find he is still there; his ghostly profile and legacy are preserved deep in the granite rocks and the old growth trees.
