Bugging Out

On his Facebook page, Robin Loznak of Kellogg, Ore., offers this photo of a hummingbird this morning, titled: “Bugging Out.” Robin posts: “A female rufous hummingbird watches a small insect as she rests on a barbed wire fence this evening near our house.” You can see more of Robin's outdoor photography here.

Question: Do you have many hummingbirds in your yard?

Last Leaf

On Election Day last week, outdoor photographer extraordinaire Robin Loznak of Kellogg, Ore., posted this photo on his Facebook wall of a last maple leaf in a Roseburg, Ore., park, entitled “Last Leaf.” You can see more of Robin's outdoor photography here. Meanwhile, leaf pickup in Coeur d'Alene begins tomorrow.

Question: Do you have your leaves raked into a row on the street?

On his Facebook wall, Robin Loznak of Kellogg, Ore., posts this comment: “A carnivorous yellow jacket wasp cuts a chunk of flesh from the discarded remains of a black tailed deer after it was shot by a hunter in a rural area near Roseburg, Ore., on Friday, Oct. 12.

Life & Death In The Country

Since Cindy will be subbing for me midweek on next week, I thought I'd get a jump on her cat photos by posting this one from Oregon online bud Robin Loznak, who writes on his Facebook wall: “One of the cats killed a wild rabbit about half her size this morning. The chickens were very interested.”


Ladybug At Twilight

Nature photographer extraordinaire Robin Loznak of Kellogg, Ore., posts this on his Facebook wall, with the note: “I found this little gem last night just as the last color was fading in the western sky.” You can see more of Robin's nature photography here.

‘Tis True About Early Birds

In Roseberg, Ore., Robin Loznak, a talented photographer & occasional HucksOnline contributor, discovered that the old adage is correct. On his Facebook wall, he posts: “The early bird works to get the worm near Roseburg, Oregon on Thursday.”

Question: How early do you rise in the morning?

Have Camera Equipment, Will Travel

As you know, professional photographer Robin Loznak traveled from his home in Roseburg, Ore., to photograph the Deep Horizon oil spill on the Gulf. I’ve been posting his photos at HucksOnline. You can see more of his terrific photos from the oil spill here and here. You can see a slide show of Robin’s photography from the oil spill, set to a Bear McCreary tune, here. You can find out more about Robin here.

Oil Spill Takes Toll On Sea Turtles

Robin Loznak/Robin Loznak Photography snapped this photo and reports: “An endangered Kemps Ridley sea turtle, which was rescued after being found coated with oil from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, is treated at the Audubon Nature Institute’s Center for Research of Endangered Species in New Orleans on Thursday. Since the start of the oil spill the center has received 32 endangered live oiled sea turtles. Six dead turtles have been found and are currently undergoing testing to see if the oil spill caused their deaths.” More photos here. (Robin Loznak/ and Zuma Press)

Robin Loznak Dances With Oil Spills

Robin Loznak: Damage In The Gulf

As some of you know from Facebook, my online photo buddy Robin Loznak took his cameras from Roseburg, Ore., to snapped pictures of the damage caused by the BP oil spill. Here is one example of his photography.

Question: Do worms make you squeamish?

Road Kill Raccoon

OK, I asked my Facebook friends whether I should publish this superb roadkill shot by online buddy Robin Loznak of Roseburg, Ore. (and formerly w/the Great Falls, Tribune). They gave me the go-ahead and new Facebook friend Loznak posts that he has more dead animal shots. Here’s his cutline for the foto above: A dead raccoon sprawls on the center stripe of Highway 138 near Sutherlin, Ore. on Wednesday, May 18, 2010.  Merritt Clifton, editor of Animal People Newspaper, has estimated that the following animals are being killed by motor vehicles in the United States annually: 41 million squirrels, 26 million cats, 22 million rats, 19 million opossums, 15 million raccoons, 6 million dogs, and 350,000 deer.” (Credit Image: © Robin Loznak/

DFO: Only 2 responded to today’s raccoon cutline contest. But this raccoon got more attention. So I’m posting it in the usual spot for cutline winners at the end of the day.
