Had to include one of my favorite camera trapping images. This is a gray fox under the stars at the Desert Photo Retreat.
Brown bear in a meadow of lupine. This was one of many from two wonderful bear photo tours!
Northern lights in the Books Range, Alaska from this past September. Seeing the aurora is such an amazing experience!
Another from northern most Alaska this past September – polar bear right at sunset. Always a treat to have such great light in the Arctic!
This is a little different, but cool – like literally! This was from the bottom of a crevasse on Exit Glacier, Kenai Fjord National Park as Trevor looks down to make sure I’m still ok.
I could do a whole post of favorites of just brown bears! Another one from this past June.
I love bobcats! This one was visiting the water hole at the Desert Photo Retreat last spring.
A couple of models riding through the beautiful desert around Tucson, Arizona.
I love how the mountain around the Desert Photo Retreat just glow in the evening making for a great background for this colorful cardinal.
We found this incredible field of fireweed to be loaded with Rufous Hummingbirds! This was from my Southeast Alaska Yacht trip. We will definitely be returning to this beach in the future.
Brown bear sow with spring cubs in Pack Creek. This was an unforgettable experience having this group run somewhat towards, and then on past us! Anther image from my Southeast Alaska yacht trip.
Black-throated sparrows captured with a camera remote, a technique I plan on using much more in 2020. Also from the Desert Photo Retreat, near Tucson, Arizona.
Horned Puffin from my June bear trip to Lake Clark National Park, Alaska.
Bald Eagle on an iceberg in Tracy Arm, Southeast, Alaska.
Javelina at sunrise at the Desert Photo Retreat.

I left out so many cool images, including mating and playing bears and bubble-net feeding and breeching humpback whales! But, I had to draw the line somewhere. Looking forward to 2020!
