During my thirty year tenure as a photographer I have spent countless months observing and documenting natural history behavior that defines the various species I have encountered. Some of these incidents were encountered by sheer luck while others were the result of knowing it could happen and concentrating my efforts to be on site when the likelihood of interaction might occur. I can recount incidences where the shot of a life time was missed because I was a few moments too late or perhaps it was the result of my own short comings in the quick use of a camera. However, I try not to dwell on the missed opportunities but instead celebrate those that I was so lucky to have witnessed and captured for viewers to enjoy. Included here are a few of those special moments that come along but once in a “blue moon”. Hope you will enjoy and appreciate them in part by the work involved to secure them as well as the uniqueness in this “moment that stands still”, a millisecond in the life of those wild ones that defines the natural history of the species therein.
