March's Best

Volcan De Agua - Near Antigua, Guatemala
The last month has been a whirlwind of travel.  I was in Guatemala doing some work for Hope Haven International the last week of February.  I did some comet chasing the second week of March closer to central South Dakota and then left for Tanzania (East Africa) and Oman (Arabian Peninsula) respectively for the last two weeks of March.  Picking twelve favorites from all that travel was hard to to, but here they are for you.  Click on an image for a larger file to view and thanks for checking in!

The waxing moon and comet Pan-STARRS in Aurora County, South Dakota.

I found a lone prairie windmill to help me frame this shot before the moon and comet sank below the horizon.

I was able to take a boat ride on a traditional (and leaky) fishing boat.

These African Monarchs or Plain Tiger Monarchs were congregating all over the short, woody plants along the beach we camped along near the little village of Fins, Oman.
