March 08, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
It's only a matter of time now before grizzly sows wake up from hibernation with new cute cubs in tow... Typically grizzly sows with newborns stay in the den a little longer. In the Yellowstone and Grand Teton area, they leave their den around mid May. Male grizzlies on the other hand can wake up any day now in March, and female grizzlies withou...

Wild Horses

It's hard to beat spending quiet time with the wild horses! It's also hard to photograph them since their heads are down (eating) the vast majority of the time, but sometimes they do seem to cooperate if you're patient enough... Here's some of the mustangs that live along the Salt River in Arizona. Panorama at the Salt River River crossin...

World Wildlife Day

March 03, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
Today is World Wildlife Day. While we keep up the fight to protect nature and its wildlife, a staggering statistic tells the story. Since the year 1970, the human population has increased by 117% while the wildlife around the world has declined by 69%. Even though the last decades have seen an increase in protected land around the world, the wor...

Salt River wild horses

March 01, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
When you visit the "Valley of the Sun" around Phoenix, Arizona, it's hard to imagine large animals like wild horses carving out a living here. Having lived in Paradise Valley near Phoenix myself for a few years, it's even hard to imagine any decently sized human population surviving there... As the Phoenix metro keeps booming and is now almost up...

Fiery Sunset Bull Moose

February 27, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
It seems that summertime visitors to Grand Teton National Park more and more have to contend with smoke from nearby forest fires. When the fires are bad, unfortunately, you can pretty much forget about making landscape images. Even the smoke from a fire hundreds of miles away can hide the Teton mountains behind a curtain. These images are from an...

Wildlife Photography in a Busy World

February 06, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
As a wildlife photographer, I'm always looking for the 'perfect' shot. A shot with great lighting. A good-looking animal posed in just the right place, with a great expression on its face or performing some type of interesting behavior. A shot that evokes emotion. A shot that shows the wild animal in its natural habitat, undisturbed by human en...

Brown Bear Fishing in Alaska

February 01, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
It's amazing how there's no such thing as "the brown bear" when it comes to appearance. Sure, they share features such as the shoulder hump and big paws with long claws for digging, but I'm always surprised how different they can look otherwise. Different color fur so they're not always "brown." Different sizes. Different faces which was most s...

The Rio Grande river in central New Mexico is home to several great spots to go see the local wildlife and migrating birds that spend...

Wildlife Short Video: Big Bull Moose in the Water

January 25, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
A peaceful scene in Wyoming's Grand Teton National Park. Having tracked these bull moose in the previous days, I setup next to the water hole that they visited around sunset the previous nights. After sitting and waiting (and hoping) while they were bedded down most of the afternoon, they got up just before the sun dipped behind the Tetons and ma...
