"The attraction of

with interesting,
beautiful, wary

interest in wild

What do you do when a herd
of Buffalo charges at you?

My answer is: "Keep photographing!"

I don't know why the Bison charged,
but they sure offered the
opportunity to take some dramatic
action photos - plus they provided a
little adrenaline buzz. I halfway
expected to see a Mountain Lion
chasing them . . . How exciting the
charge was, even without the big cat.

Woodpeckers are always
a challenge, but walking
in snow beneath grand
trees to get close to a
big male Pileated
Woodpecker in winter
light was a personal
accomplishment. And to
get a quality photo as it
hammers away at an
ancient oak tree
provides a lifetime gem.
Winter Images
Anywhere you travel,
wildlife provides
interesting, if not
unusual photo
opportunities. Cases
in point include such
exotic-looking birds
as a Green Jay and
Acorn Woodpecker.
As a winter moon rises
at the end of a chilling
afternoon, a Northern
Hawk Owl is positioned
in the halo of moonlight.
Spring booms across the tall-grass prairie
when Greater Prairie Chickens assemble on
traditional display leks. These photos
illustrate the dramatic difference between a
booming male in full display and a more
relaxed pinnated grouse during a break in
the action; 26 males displayed at this lek.
Birds provide
memorable adventures
in the Northwoods,
ranging from an
attacking Bald Eagle to
a Common Loon that
just surfaced, and
picturesque Trumpeter
Swans, among the
largest of all
flying birds.
Wild Horses are rarely encountered in their few remote haunts among the
wild lands of the West, especially during cold winter days. But this band of
mustangs, led by an impressive black and white paint, offered insights into
the differences between wild and domestic equines. Notice how each horse
in the herd faces outward in a circle to watch for danger, and note the big
head on the wild stallion compared to domestic breeds. How exciting to
share time among wild horses! All a part of the fun of Wildlife Adventures.
In stark comparison to
the charging bison is
the tranquil scene of a
White-tailed Jack Rabbit
sunning amid a frigidly
cold snowscape.

Surprised by a big, big
Black Bear, Paul was
concerned as he
photographed the
bruin at close range,
then managed a
full-sized photo (top)
after it retreated into
the forest and slipped
into an opening some
distance away.
On the other end of the spectrum, a
young fawn offers a tranquil insight
into the nature of the season.
In western North America, wary
Pronghorn Antelope provide
exciting photo experiences as
summer progresses.

The surprise sighting of a partial-albino
Ring-necked Pheasant provided a rare opportunity
to document the leucocistic bird in a photo.

Songbirds are
among the most
beautiful birds,
although they are
also among the
most difficult to
photograph at
close range.
Two remarkable
songbirds you
may encounter -
a Yellowthroat
and a Western
Tanager -  each
