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.

Yosemite Bear

John Muir

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.

Waves of Geese

Taking Off

This goes with my last photograph and video.  This was taken at Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge as thousands of geese took off at the same time.  This picture was taken early as the huge wave began to lift from the water.

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.
