Macro: great and small

"To approach animals in their most natural, native settings. I have to understand the mysteries of their behavior. With careful preparation, I can show the animal in its best light, demonstrating its beauty, strength and intelligence."


This is where I simply dabble, sometimes at home.

It's about finding beauty in small things. Often I'm in the backyard and see a butterfly, bee, or water droplets on a flower and I'll grab a camera.

Sometimes my wife Lesley has grown a lovely houseplant and I shoot it in a room where the light is just right.

Sometimes I'm shooting eagles at a local lake and a dragonfly comes by or a nearby water lily is blooming.

Just maybe, it's a small still-life scene.
