Wildlife Gallery

All the photos you see on this website are my own.

It takes a lot of quiet time – hiking the trails, paddling the lake, sitting behind a bush, or even climbing a tree, to find the wildlife I love to write about.

And once I do, I might sit there for an hour or two,

or three,

watching quietly,

snapping hundreds of images,

hoping for the perfect capture.

Of those hundreds of pictures, I may get 6 to 10 great photos. But I gain so much more than that, because monitoring the wildlife is how I research to create stories that are realistic and true ~

So readers like you can feel as if they’re on the lake and trails with Cooper, Packrat and I.

Below are some of my favorite photos.  Please don’t copy to share or post without permission. But teachers, please feel free to show them to your students!  There are many, many more on my blog.  Most of these I use in my presentations as well.
