The surviving five species are all on the Endangered or Critically Endangered list.

Bears 2022 – Part I

This year I had hoped to photograph the Alaskan Coastal Brown Bears fishing for salmon. My dates were for what has been traditionally the peak of the salmon run. However, as often happens in wildlife photography Mother Nature refused to cooperate. An inordinate amount of rain in previous weeks had raised the level of the water and the salmon had not begun their run.…

Frogs 2022 – Part III

While in Africa back in 2008 I met a photographer, Jim Zuckerman, who organizes photography trips. One of his trips was a Frog workshop. I attended and was hooked.

Frogs 2022 – Part I

As you probably know I have a lot of fun photographing these little frogs and their friends. It's not my intention to portray them as they are in the wild.

Summer Flowers – Hibiscus

The colorful flowers of the Hibiscus attracted me to this plant a number of years ago. Quite a number of them seem to have followed me home. Most are the exotic or fancy hybrid Hibiscus, but several are the larger cold hardy variety. The Exotics With hundreds of color combinations the exotic Hibiscus blooms are breathtaking. Sadly the flowers only last for a day.…

Florida Birds 2022

Part III — Before leaving the west coast of Florida I went to Coral Gables in search of Burrowing Owls. I was shocked to find that many of the burrows that I’d visited in previous years were no longer there. Instead, houses were built or being built.

Florida Birds 2022

Ballet of the Reddish Egret — I have always been fascinated with the method the Reddish Egrets use to catch small fish. It reminds me of a somewhat frantic ballet. Their movements are quick and energetic sometimes running, sometimes jumping or flying low over the water.

OWLS

Part II — Photographing Snowy Owls in the dead of winter in Canada was one of the coldest photo shoots I've ever done. There was a day where it was so cold that you ran the risk of frost bite if you exposed any of your skin.

BEARS 2021

BEARS 2021

PART III — Our guide took us to a bear who was relaxing on a log near a small inlet. Unfortunately, the mosquitos were so bad that he couldn't get comfortable. His solution was fun to watch and gave me the images for this series.
