I’m pleased to see a few of my images made it into the new issue of American Angler Magazine. Ironically, the TOC image of the brook trout skin are both from the same location and shoot.
Big thanks to Rick Matney for always getting it done.
Head down to your local shop and grab a copy, or better yet, get a yearly subscription and never miss an issue.
A portrait of “Ozzie” before he was taken to the Teton Raptor Center for wing and shoulder rehabilitation. I think this shows his personality well: a brave courageous bird with a will to live.
I’m happy he is flying once again back home in the Box Canyon of the Henry’s Fork River, Yellowstone country.
GROUSE, GIRL AND MACRO | YELLOWSTONE COUNTRY JoJo The Grouse
My young friend Ella took me to meet her unusual pal in her remote morel mushroom area today. Each time Ella picks shrooms with her family she calls out to her grouse friend named “JoJo”, who comes running to greet her. The bird stays close to Ella’s heels and is curious to her every move. For hours this continues. The bird was also curious to the camera and came in for a closer inspection. I was able to use a macro lens while photographing “JoJo”, what a great experience. Another interesting thing is, the grouse attacked our shoes when we were leaving. Tugging at the shoelaces in a frantic effort to keep us there. Often times JoJo flies after the truck in a last ditch effort to get Ella to stay. Nature is amazing… what a great day!
