DEWY MORNINGS

Here in the Midwest it has been a very hot summer, it is now mid-August and as we round the corner and start to head towards fall, I look forward to things starting to cool down a bit. One of the many reasons that I look forward to the cooler weather this time of year is that…

METAMORPHOSIS

Here is a series of pictures I made a few years ago. The pictures show the main stages of a monarch caterpillar turning into a beautiful butterfly. This group of pictures was made over about a two week period. All of the action takes place at the beginning and end of that two week period. Near the end you can tell when…

GREATER SAGE GROUSE

One of the main reasons that I went out west this spring was to photograph the endangered Greater Sage Grouse. In mid April the males gather on leks to dance and call in the hopes of attracting females to mate with. I want to say a special thanks to Ron Laird an excellent photographer and great naturalist…

YELLOWSTONE AND TETON NATIONAL PARKS

This fall I was asked to put on a presentation for The Photographic Society of America’s 75th annual conference. Since this year the conference was to meet in West Yellowstone at the end of September (the best time of the year to be in Yellowstone) I quickly agreed. Of course I decided that I would…
