I did this one for a friend on her birthday. He was a Lipizzan Stallion, just a young whippersnapper, too young to be trained but not too young to be photographed.
I shot this black bear two years ago and watched him grow from a cub to about two hundred pounds over the course of the summer and fall. He spent most of his time feasting on apples from my sons apple tree…which may account for his enormous size. Sadly, he didn’t show up this year in the spring…probably the victim of a hunters bullet. He didn’t seem to mind me being close by…I took this photo from about 40′ away. I nicknamed him, Winnie The Poop! …..for obvious reasons 🙂
I shot this guy hanging around the bird sanctuary on Madeira Beach Fl. I’m trying to be more artistic in my photography, if that makes any sense. I’ve always tried to mix the two mediums (photography & art), but lately I’m leaning more to the “artsy fartsy” side.
Thanks for stopping by. ~ Dave
I’m trying something new in 2019 (occasionally adding words/poetry to photos), hopefully it turns out. ~ Dave
ps…this is not a new years resolution, so it might happen more than once, lol!
Back to Canada for a quick winter shot. ..now back to Florida in a few days!
