Click on any image for a full screen view! Wolves! They are one of Yellowstone’s most iconic species and something we are always on the lookout for during any trip to the park, especially during the Winter season. We certainly don’t see them on every visit and most encounters are fleeting. Following, is the story of one of our most epic encounters… so far! Our group entered the park an hour before dawn, hoping to be at the Midway Geyser Basin for sunrise. The day was clear and cold – temperatures were sub-zero with heavy fog, especially in the thermal areas. We were headed to Midway because we ..read more

A “fully-loaded” Think Tank Airport Addicted 2 bodies, 600mm f4, 200-400 f4 zoom, plus flash system, short lens, laptop, and hard drives. It looks like we all may soon be able to travel again soon!

How do they help/improve your traveling? Any g ..read more

I was able to get out in the woods a couple of days ago and photograph one of my very favorite Spring wildflowers Round-lobed Hepatica. These delicate beauties are one of the first to make an appearance here in Michigan and for me, they signal the official opening of the Spring photography season. Having photographed these flowers each year for decades…literally – I am always looking to do something a bit different. One of the new weapons in my bag is the Laowa 15mm wide-angle macro lens. I decided to try it out with this subject. I found the results interesting and quite surprising. While I ..read more

Ecuador – Wow what a great trip! We’ve been on the go since this trip and are finally home for a bit and wanted to share the highlights of our recent Birds of Ecuador Photo Tour.  It is such a pleasure to visit and photograph in such a subject rich environment.

Ecuador is unique in that it has different bird species on different sides of the Andes mountains and at different elevations.  So, to take advantage of this ..read more

I will be teaching two webinars for The North American Nature Photography Association this March. Unlike most of their webinars which are open to members only, they have agreed to open these two up to the general public. But space is limited and you must register early to get a spot. The first “Caught in Motion” is all about using natural light to photograph action from birds in flight to animals on the move. We will cover auto-focus optimization, achieving focus-lock, specialized equipment and so much more. This session will take place on Tuesday March 3rd at 8:00 PM EST Register for “Caug ..read more

Ah! Newfoundland. This island is affectionately known by locals as “the rock”.  With amazing wildlife spectacles and rugged beauty of the landscape, this is one of our favorite destinations in North America. This year, we led two back to back trips, and they did not disappoint.  Like most of North America, spring was running behind here and we got to experience wildflowers like lupine, pinkster azalea and bunchberry in peak bloom. But of course the real stars of this trip are the wildlife. Tons of great pictures were made by our participants. You can check out our Client Gallery here ..read more

An Unexpected Family – Sandhill Cranes raise baby goose

This spring, here in Michigan, something quite unexpected happened. It started out as it always does in early April with the sandhill cranes preparing their nest.  A week later, they laid their first egg then a second egg appeared.  The devoted parents incubated both eggs and in early May the first egg hatched. This is where the unexpected turn occurred. Much to everyone’s surprise, this first chick was the gosling of a Canada goose! The parents adopted this gosling and cared for it as if it were their own. A few days later, the Sandhilll Crane colt hatched. Under the watchful ey ..read more
