Wild Critters

Viewing wildlife on any trip is always a special moment. For quite a few years I used a large format 4x5 camera. A 4x5 camera is great for capturing detail within inanimate objects but the format was just not practical for shooting wildlife. I would often go on trips and come across some wonderful wildlife photo opportunities but would have to settle on just enjoying the moment. The images in this gallery are from a few specific trips that I have taken just to photograph wildlife or from the odd occasion when I have come across wildlife.
