Thanks for visiting my SmugMug Photo site. Please leave comments!

Many of my photos are taken here in western Montana, but also around the world. I love being outdoors. I hike, bike, fish, hunt, ski and ALWAYS take photos. As much time as I spend outdoors, one needs to eat. You might see photos of food on these treks as I explore the sights, flora and fauna. I use a Canon 7D and 5D Mark III (with a few lenses and tripods) and shoot in RAW. I process my photos into JPG with Adobe Lightroom with as few adjustments as possible.
Tundra Swan (Cygnus columbianus)
The Tundra Swan breeds on the high tundra across the top of North America. It is a migratory bird coming through Montana in the late fall and winter. There is some evidence of this species overwintering in the vicinities of Glacier Park, west central Montana (i.e. near Stevensville and the Lee Metcalf National Wildlife Refuge) and Yellowstone Park. Tundra Swans are similar in appearance to Trumpeter Swans but the latter is larger. Trumpeter Swans rarely show any yellow on the lores, while Tundra Swans have very evident yellow lores (evident in many of these photos).Read More
