These images are taken in Kansas and all of the animals are in their natural habitat. I try to show the natural beauty of the animals even though their surroundings often camouflage them. The outdoors has always been an important part of my life. Taking the time to just sit and wait, and wait, and wait….for that wild animal to walk into my view and trying to not disturb him is always a challenge. Oh and getting the little critter to smile for the camera is also a little tricky.
As a former professional sports photographer, I have learned how to capture quick action that is seldom seen with the naked eye. The greater prairie chicken is a unique bird that I have recently been drawn to. Watching their mating rituals on the booming ground has been a privilege, let alone being able to photograph them.
