Moments that occurred when I didn't forget my camera.

Wildlife

Getting close to animals in their natural habitat has been a fascination of mine for as long as I can remember. Once I got a camera and a bow in my hands, it became an obsession.

In photography and bowhunting, there is a rush that comes with getting close to an animal and having it either be oblivious to your presence, or for it to accept you as part of its surroundings. I don’t think I’ll ever tire of the feeling.

“Go afield with a good attitude, with respect for the forest and fields in which you walk. Immerse yourself in the outdoor experience. It will cleanse your soul and make you a better person.” - Fred Bear

With that quote in mind, here are a few of my favorite images of wildlife that I’ve taken over the last couple of years. I never get tired of observing and photographing wildlife. Each encounter and setting is different. I don’t think I’ll ever tire of this pursuit.
