Resplendent Quetzal female with small avocado fruit destined for her nest. The male and female both delivered a wide variety of fruits, insects, frogs and small lizards to the nest, and the male would occasionally exit the nest carrying a small avocado.

    Recording the natural history of wildlife is my primary focus. Photographing wildlife in its most natural state requires getting to know the animals in a manner where you become a friend and ally, as well as a protector and non-threatening observer.

    Enjoy the photos and please remember to support and protect habitat wherever you can. For it's the trees, shrubs, waterways, oceans and open areas that provide the necessary habitat that sustains mankind and the wonderful wildlife around us.
