Support Local Business! Working with local print shops, and the associated price changes For quite some time, I have struggled to keep my price tier within tight financial margins, attempting to make a small profit while keeping my work at an affordable cost.

Coyote Country

Coyotes are incredible creatures. Like wolves, they form tightly-knit family groups or “packs,” sometimes hunting cooperatively to take down larger or more difficult prey. They eat a wide variety of food items, from rabbit (which seem to be the favored entree), to reptiles, birds, eggs, plants, berries and, when they’re desperate, even the occasional roadkill…

Arachnids

The animal kingdom’s arachnid class includes such creatures as spiders, scorpions, harvestmen, and ticks, as well as some outrageous oddities (such as vinegaroons and solfugids).  These underappreciated creatures are often written off as pests, and dealt with as such.  If one were to give pause to their persecution, however, one might consider how enriched our…

Mammals

As far as wildlife photography goes, mammals are probably one of the toughest animal classes to capture.  This group comprises some of the most intelligent, impressive, and unfortunately, evasive species on the planet.  All subjects are wild animals, which were not baited or harassed.
