Berries

February 21, 2022  •  Leave a Comment
One of my favorite things in wildlife photography is to be able to see in detail what your eye doesn't pick up in the wild. You see, it's much safer to keep your distance from a subject like a black bear and to take its picture with a big, long lens rather than to walk up to the bear for a close-up view! Here's some images from this past fall in...

Wolves Need Our Help

January 21, 2022  •  2 Comments
It is heartbreaking to watch as grey wolves get slaughtered by states such as Idaho, Montana, Wisconsin and Michigan. I think it's clear to say that science has nothing to do with this: these states have officially declared war on the wolf and are trying to reduce the wolf population down to zero. Let's call a duck a duck, no matter who you voted...
