I am not an "animal" photographer and greatly respect those who have so much talent and patience. That said, I live in a world where animals interact with me on some level and if I have my camera...well that's the point of this gallery. Wandering through the back roads in Europe, the Middle East, and so many places in the states (especially my beloved Connecticut), sometimes gives me a chance to see what exists around me. Rarely, however, do I get a photograph that is able to capture a given encounter. However, the writing of Colin Fletcher taught me to be content with the visual image that I was lucky enough to register.
