Chinstrap Penguins on Ice Berg
This photo, with the two penguins reflected in the surface of the water, captivated me. It was taken in Börgen Bay along the Antarctica Peninsula on Dec, 24, 2022

Here in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina, water is always flowing. The calmness of a pond, with a gentle ripple of breeze, brings a moment of silent appreciation for Nature’s gifts. A perfect “cause for pause,” reflection and contemplation.
Blue Heron on Takeoff
This image was taken in the wetlands along Meadow Creek in Stony Brook, New York during a nature cruise on a small boat. Under the guidance of a professional photographer I had preset the camera for a 3-shot burst and I was zoomed to the maximum range of the lens. This was taken during a period when many birds were migrating through this popular area. I was fortunate that at exactly the right moment from the direction I was looking this blue heron rose up out of the tall weeds and I was able to get this shot.

This male Florida flamengo was trying hard to impress a potential mate, but his amorous displays were repeatedly rejected. After several unsuccessful flirtations, he seemed to collapse in dejected exhaustion.
Mother and Child at Rest
A mother and child of the Isimbi Family of mountain gorillas in Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park. Reached after an hour-long climb up steep mountain terrain, slogging through mud and hacking through bamboo trees, I was ready to join them in a nap.
Uluru is an iconic sandstone mountain in central Australia, sacred to the Pitjantjatjara Aboriginal people. Their religion forbids climbing the mountain, a tradition my party respected. Visitors routinely violate this tradition to the detriment of the mountain and the people to whom it is sacred.
Icy Rapids on the Gridley River
This favorite spot of mine is in a lovely Nature Conservancy property known as the Wales Preserve in Sharon NH. It’s always beautiful but especially so when ice forms and when the leaves turn in the fall. The river also flows through two extensive wetlands upstream of this and around the end of a quite sizeable glacial esker ridge on it’s way to the Contoocook River which flows north, unlike virtually all other rivers in central New England and joins the Merrimack River which empties in to the Atlantic Ocean.

This charismatic grizzly bear was orphaned in an Alaskan village as a wee cub. He was given a home in Bozeman, Montana at Casey Anderson’s (Nat Geo) Grizzly sanctuary. When I met this bear, I waited for hours for him to look into the camera. He changed my life when he did. By Erin Wolf
I waited with my lens trained on the edge of a wooded area in Yellowstone National Park, where I had heard there was a grizzly mating pair. Eventually this sow walked out and stepped into my frame, making it one of the most memorable and thrilling moments of my life. by Erin Wolf
