Thanks, +Alex Valdez! I meant to add that in for those that might not know and forgot. Also a bit of info for those who aren't familiar with bison, the big one is still called a 'cow', males are 'bulls'. Don't mistake these for big cattle, however. They can be more territorial and aggressive, and they have the weight and strength to back it up. Take a tip from Jeff and admire them from afar.

A protective Mother moose with her two newborns (one is mostly hidden behind her legs)....taken handheld at 600mm with a Tamron 150-600mm lens last Saturday.

I was told by the locals in Jackson Hole, Wyoming that the newborns were born in the last 24 hours.

I didn't notice the other calf at the cow's hind leg just peeping out. Hope they survive. The elk herds have diminished from 19,000 animals to 4,000 in Yellowstone since the wolves were introduced.

Thank goodness that I had - and still have - a towering figure in my life that served as the quintessential role model for me.  I salute her - and mothers everywhere - today.

Here's something I wrote about her a few years ago that still rings so true to this very second:

As I have aged, I have become more acutely aware of the impact my Mother has had on my development as a man. Simply said - I am the man I am today because of her. 

Strong statement, huh? Surely a man is a combination of a lot of inputs over the course of his life. School, friends, events, successes and failures all create the man - don't they? 

The simple fact in my case is that the foundation my Mother built below me during my formative years has supported everything that was later erected upon that firm ground. And I truly believe that her role as a Mother made her one of the most successful humans to walk on this planet. And no - she was not wealthy. Nor famous. But she was impactful....and that's the true descriptor for this magnificent woman.

What did she do to deserve such accolades? She set a loving, living example every day as a single Mother. She mothered her sons as if that was the most important role any person could ever hold. And she constantly taught. Sometimes by words...and often by actions.

She taught her two sons that whether they lived in a small house....or a large one....didn't matter one bit. And she taught them that success and failure were simply two different sides of the same mirror. She taught them how to laugh and when to cry. She taught them optimism and courage. And above all - she taught them that what really mattered... above all else.... was her belief in them as individuals. She constantly reinforced in them that they could do anything they wanted to do in life. And she transferred that belief...one day at a time....until that belief resided deep inside of each son. 

And, of course - as is so often the case in self fulfilling prophecies - the boys listened...and learned... started believing....and prospered. They both became over achievers in school...and in their careers. And if you peel back all their layers....you would surely uncover the inner core inside of each man. And that core was planted, nurtured and allowed to grow because one woman realized that her eternal legacy would be her children. And instead of leaving the maturation of those children to chance....she made their evolution to adulthood her prime aspiration. 

In fact, if there is such a thing as a doctorate in motherhood - my mother achieved it with highest honors. 

Thankfully, this wonderful woman now is passing on that inner strength...that inner resolve....to a new set of her descendants. And surely those grandchildren will one day experience the realization that much of what they are is directly attributable to the effort of one remarkable woman.

Motherhood....truly God's best gift to mankind.

I have been to the Jackson Hole area many times, but my camera lenses always fell about 200mm short.  But then I got my Tamron 150-600mm lens and coupled it with a Nikon D800 and everything changed.

This cropped shot was taken last Thursday from 200 plus yards away - at the full extension of 600mm.  The ISO was 4000 and it was shot from a monopod a f/8.0 and a shutter speed of 200.  If you look closely you can see the catch light in the two bear's eyes.

What a moment. What a lens.

A proud great white egret Mom and her brood.

I took this with a Tamron 150-600mm lens coupled with a Nikon D800. I was at full extension (600mm) and was shooting f/6.3 at ISO 2000, shutter speed 1/1000. I was probably at least 40 feet from the tree and this branch was probably 30 feet off the ground. If you look closely you can see five egret eyes - four of the chicks and one of the Mom, which is a first for me.

Feedback and cc always welcomed and appreciated. I was shooting handheld with a monopod attached to the lens and held by my left hand in mid air for stability....might look weird to others but it works for me.

They look nice in pictures. They are much less nice in person, what with the stench in the rookery, and the crapping on the walkways. They, too, deserve to live, though!

Introduction
Thanks for stopping by my profile page.  I'm an independent Leadership Consultant who has worked with many large companies during the past ten years - including Motorola, Shell Oil, Johnson and Johnson, Kraft Foods, Sara Lee, Hallmark, Dr Pepper/Snapple and the American Heart Association.  Earlier in my career I was Manager of Leadership Development at Procter and Gamble.
 
I'm also a self taught photographer whose work has been published in books, magazines, advertisements and displayed worldwide in both museums and private homes.  My photo journey has led me to author a best selling book and to host photo tours in some of the most spectacular landscape locations in North America.


You should come join me for some incredible photo opportunities - and for the fun of shooting with people who share your passion and who enjoy shooting for ten plus hours a day.

And here's a link to the Amazon store which carries the Kindle version and the printed version of my photography book if you'd like one to carry with you to the Tetons

I have used Atlanta Canvas and Print and would HIGHLY recommend their services to anyone who needs professional quality prints and canvas to highlight their photos. The service is first class - thorough, responsive, and as professional as any within the industry. And the pricing is very reasonable considering the care and personal touch they put into each order. The place is owned by a pro photographer and he personally supervises every print and canvas to insure the final result is "just right" ....and I know of no other place online who can make that claim. He knows what looks good and he'll work with you to be sure your expectations are met and exceeded. I would recommended their service to anyone - including my family and my closest friends. They really are a great small business who caters to the photography community.
