Wild stallions in the Sapphire Mountains

Wild stallions in the Sapphire Mountains
I took this photo of these six stallions in the Sapphire Mountains (Montana). After breeding season, they “bachelor up.” I’ve been watching them for about 10 years. Originally I came across them while hunting. There are several herds in the Sapphires. On this day I was looking for them to take photos. They’re huge and powerful. […]

Bighorn Sheep, Packing it up

Bighorn Sheep, Packing it up
This image of a group of male bighorn sheep captures their practice of departing from the females once the mating season has concluded. Bighorn sheep do not follow a “leader,” as many other animal species do, but instead travel in herds, as seen here.  These Rocky Mountain bighorns are a distinct subspecies inhabiting the cooler […]

Changing Seasons: Landscape & Wildlife Photography

Changing Seasons: Landscape & Wildlife Photography
As a Missoula, Montana based landscape and wildlife photographer, I am constantly amazed at the rapid pace of seasonal changes.  Montana enjoys four distinct seasons — each with its own range of color and texture, and each with its own special “events.”  Summer in the west boasts gorgeous floral blossoms, raging rivers, and massive wildfires.
