We have always called our local "defender of feeder" "King Tut".  There is always one in the back yard and one by the family room that thinks he owns the place.  But when the population peaks he just gives up in the crowd.

In 1926, the Ford Trimotor changed aviation as we know it. Prior to that, folks flew but only a handful as air transport was not only scary, but no fun. There were many reasons for this and in order to introduce the public to the idea of flying from destination to destination, Henry Ford and …

Yep, it’s World Photo Day. More than 200,000 photos are uploaded to Facebook EVERY minute! Over 880 BILLION images were taken in 2014! And to celebrate this we have World Photo Day.

Great advice +Moose Peterson. In the past I have tended to focus on the animals (particularly the big cats). Partially out of choice and partially because the photo tour I was on wasn't prepared to spend much time with the birds.

Last time we went on our own and so had freedom of choice as to what to photograph, and I too started to photograph more birds, but I needed a longer lens for the smaller birds like the Bee eater, which I didn't have. If I am lucky enough to travel there again I intend to go with a 500F4 and 1x4 convertor  plus a zoom for the larger animals.

Introduction

Moose’s true passion has always been and remains photographing the life history of our endangered wildlife and wild places. Since 1981 he and his wife Sharon have dedicated their lives to this pursuit. Educating the public about our wild heritage is their hallmark. In recent years Moose has added aviation photography to his pursuits with the same goal of preserving our flying history, pictorial and oral for future generations. Along the way Moose has been honored for his photographic passion: a Nikon Legend Behind the Lens, Lexar Elite Photographer, recipient of the John Muir Conservation Award, Research Associate with the Endangered Species Recovery Program, just to name a few. He shares his knowledge through his writing, being published in over 131 magazines worldwide, author of 24 books including his latest, Captured and lecturing across the country to thousands upon thousands of photographers. One of the original Nikon shooters to receive the D1 in 1999, Moose embraced this new technology, becoming the only wildlife photographer in the world to shoot strictly digital in the early years. While a beta site for all the major hardware and software manufacturers, Moose continues being a creative innovator of new techniques both behind the camera and the computer, which is the driving force behind his photography and goals.
