    Best of 2016

    I don't see a "Best of 2016" thread down below, and I can't create one on my own, so hopefully an admin can help get it going. In the meantime, here are a couple of my favorites from what was a tremendous year of photography, and a link to my full list of favorite images and moments from the...

    Costa Rica 2016 Birds

    I've published another gallery of new photos on my website. This time, I finally caught up on processing images from my Costa Rica trip back in March. This trip covered two different photo tours plus a little time on my own in between. I was there nearly a month. Due to the amount of...

    Baird's Tapir

    A portrait of a Baird's tapir, photographed in Corcovado National Park in Costa Rica. I spent a month in Costa Rica leading a couple of photo tours, and both tours culminated in a stay inside Corcovado, probably the best place for general wildlife in the entire country. It's also the best...

  6. Dwarf Mongoose

    Dwarf Mongoose

    Probably the cutest mongoose species in South Africa, unless you like meerkats. It's always a highlight seeing these little critters in action. In this case, a whole family was denning in a fallen tree.

    Cub of the Kikilezi Female

    I just returned from three weeks in South Africa. We criss-crossed the country during that time, visiting a couple of the arid parks as well as our favorite haunts in the Sabi Sands. We saw numerous leopards in the Sabi Sands, including 11 different individuals in four days at Mala Mala...

    Abu

    This is Abu, the dominant male orangutan in the Danum Valley area near the Borneo Rainforest Lodge. He's estimated to be over 35 years old. During my very short stay in Borneo, we saw six different wild orangutans, which are very difficult to photograph, as they stay high up in the trees most...

    Boat-Billed Heron

    The most spectacular boat-billed heron I've seen by a long shot, photographed in SE Peru from a canoe. A collection of my Peru bird photos is currently being featured on the BBC Wildlife website: http://www.discoverwildlife.com/. Be sure to check them out!

    A humpback whale leaps out of the water on the British Columbia coast. This was photographed during my tour of the Great Bear Rainforest in 2009. If you're interested in joining me for humpbacks, spirit bears and other coastal wildlife, my new "Islands of the Spirit Bear, Waters of the...
  19. Marvelous Spatuletail

    Marvelous Spatuletail

    A male marvelous spatuletail perches in a lek near Pomacoches in northern Peru. The species gets its name from the male's two longest tail feathers, which can be controlled independently and play a major role in the hummingbird's courtship displays. The spatuletail is considered by many to be...
  20. Yellowstone Wolf on NYE

    Yellowstone Wolf on NYE

    A gray yearling from the Canyon Pack pauses before approaching a carcass on December 31 in Yellowstone National Park. At one point the wolves were within 25 yards of us. What a great way to end the year.
