With mom away fishing, dad is nestled in their house of sticks with the adoring babies. When mom returns, dad will depart to go fishing as well, giving both parents a break from those adoring, but demanding little babies…please view large.

Canon DSLR and 500mm Lens

Location: Everglades National Park

I started out as an artist, became a pilot, and ended up where I am now: nature photographer and educator. Being a pilot allowed me to observe the Earth and humanity’s impact on it from 30,000 feet for many years. It allowed me to experience different cultures and to see the world through many lenses.
