I found this as I was going through my old photos from my trip to Africa.  An African elephant mother was nursing her baby as her herd was grazing in Samburu National Reserve.

Waves of Canadian Geese

Here is a video I shot last weekend of a huge wave of Canadian Geese taking off from one of the marshes at Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge in Missouri.  I had my camcorder set up while I was snapping pictures when all of the sudden all of the geese took off in a wave.  This is one of the most fascinating experiences I have ever had doing wildlife photography.

Thousands of Geese Take Off

Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge sits in northwest Missouri and is known for it’s large concentration of Bald Eagles during the winter and spring.  It is also known for the large number of waterfowl that migrate through the area before and after winter. Here is a close up of a large group of thousands of Canadian geese that took off at the same time on a recent trip to the refuge.

“Majesty”  A whitetail deer buck stands in an open meadow.  Autumn in the United States is a perfect time to photograph deer.  The deer are plentiful in Pinson Mounds State Archeological Park, especially in the fall.  There are only a few large bucks and they are extremely hard to capture in a photograph.  Part of wildlife photography is about patience and persistence.  It took me several weeks of trying to capture this deer before I was lucky enough to get this shot.

Take a Hike: Grand Canyon National Park VIDEO

Here is something new that I have started.  After having several people ask me to start documenting some of my stories and sharing my adventures I started a YouTube series called Take a Hike.  This is the newest episode based around my trip to the Grand Canyon.  Take a look at my other episodes.
