Do You See What I See?
"I'm just this guy, you know?"  I'm your average guy living an average life with a passion for wildlife and nature photography that I hope is occasionally more than average.  

So many people miss the wonders of nature in their own back yard.  Much of my photography is done within an hour of my home in Northern Illinois, USA. I love the moment I first lay eyes on a critter in the wild.  Often even after I get my shot(s) I will just sit and watch them until they wander off.  Coyotes are my favorite and I could watch them from sunrise to sunset.  I am not against shooting captive critters from zoos or wildlife centers, and will do my best to label them as such so you know.  It will never be my intent to deceive the viewer, although it will be my intent to make a scene look natural regardless of where it was shot.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to ask.
