The photographs certainly show the talent of a skilled photographer in the difficult art of capturing animals in their natural habitats.

"There is a wildness in California still that is in the blood of those who grew up here. It does not exist only within those areas designated as wilderness or national parks, but also in the "back blocks" = the hinterland of lands that are otherwise used for other purposes."
