Say Cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeese

Art PrintsSay Cheeeeeeeese

I talk to the wild animals when I shoot. I ask them to smile, to move away from a fence or to pose in a certain way.
Many people walking by may think I should be wearing a white coat with the ties in the back, but I have found the animals seem to understand. I always am delighted when they do what I ask. For all those that think this is a little strange, I only have to ask one question, “Do you talk to your pet”? I bet in the privacy of your home you do.
Above is the Amur Tiger that I asked to smile.
Below is a Wolverine that I asked to look my way, he seemed to be listening and understand.

And a snowy owl that seemed to have a conversation he wanted to share.

So the next time you get a chance to talk to the animals, do not pass it up.

My time with the Michigan Elk

The Native American people call Elk,  “Wapiti”, or “light colored deer”.
Photography Prints

I had the pleasure to spend a day with a large Michigan Elk herd near Gaylord, Michigan in May. I found the entire herd to be very accepting of my human form and camera. I was careful not to get too close and risk a possible charge. The Elk are very large (350 to 900 lbs) animals with their backs well over my shoulder and with a full set of antlers I would say they would be 7-9ft off of the ground. If they decided to charge I could not out run them, so I was happy to see that they accepted me with only mild curiosity.

If I approached too close, I was given the nervous lick, that let me know that I had stepped into the danger zone, at that point I slowly backed up till the licking of the lips stopped.

I did not get to see the full set of antlers on the bull (Male) elk, as the elk lose their antlers each March and start to grow them back in May. By late summer they will grow full size antlers (up to 4ft above the head), in time for the late summer breeding season. I did see a few of the bull elk that had a fresh set of sprouting horns covered in new velvet.

I was honored several times with some of the bull elks lifting their heads to bugle.  The sound is surprisingly loud. It definitely gets the attention of his females in the harem.

All of the elk currently in Michigan, are the result of repopulation. Michigan’s native elk disappeared around 1875. Today it is estimated that Michigan has 900+ elks in the wild, and managed with a limited number of hunting permits.

One of the greatest honors as a photographer is being accepted by a wild animal and being able to photograph them in their native environment.  This was one of the great moments in the May photo adventure.

Happy Easter

Rejoice for  He has risen.

The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified.  “He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying. “Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you.”…Matthew 28:6

According to the Canonical gospels, Jesus rose from the dead on the third day after his crucifixion. His resurrection is celebrated on Easter Day or Easter Sunday (also Resurrection Day or Resurrection Sunday). The chronology of his death and resurrection is variously interpreted to have occurred between AD 26 and 36. Easter marks the end of Lent, a forty-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance. The last week of the Lent is called Holy Week, and it contains Good Friday, commemorating the crucifixion and death of Jesus.

Easter,Crown,Thorns

The soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head. They clothed him in a purple robe John 19.2
Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him. And the soldiers plaited a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe, And said, “Hail, King of the Jews!” and they smote him with their hands. Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him. Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!
