With all sorts of large mammals and impressive landscapes in the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem, this little guy employs an effective tactic to grab your attention. One step into his territory and he let loose an alarm call that scared the bejesus out of me and dropped me to the ground… to get a better look at this ferocious speaker.

During an unexpected chance to experience Africa, a seed was planted. Nurtured by subsequent forays into wild places, this photographer was born.

Jacques Cousteau said “People protect what they love.” And we’ve all heard that “A picture is worth a thousand words.” So, enough with this. My photography says the rest. Thanks for listening.
