I love photography. And I love the outdoors. So, it stands to reason that at least occasionally throughout my career, I would turn my photographic attention to the residents of the great outdoors. After all, wildlife photography is one of the most challenging–and rewarding–genres of photography. There’s nothing like seeing these beautiful creatures out in their natural habitat, and then getting to make a photograph to share and enjoy.
Unfortunately, they aren’t always so interested in being the subject of photo documentaries.
All too often, it seems that I’ve been sitting in that spot since way before the crack of dawn when I finally spot my quarry–and they are amazing. And just as I push the button, they turn tail and, yep, you got it, I have a first-class portrait of the backside of Yogi Bear.
