“When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.”
A day after hiking up onto a bear in Yosemite I had a little more comfortable encounter with a male cinnamon black bear. While driving the upper back country on our way out of Yosemite National Park we went on a little used back road this bear walked out in front of the vehicle. I rolled down the back window and took a couple of shots as the bear slipped through the shadows of the forest.
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.
“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.
