    I’m impressed. These are just so incredible. The clarity and beauty of these images is stunning. He must’ve gotten soaked why taking these shots. Such patience and dedication.

    Such intimacy!! These leave me wondering how much time it took a photograher to get these shots. I’ve watched documentaries about wild life photography and it takes hours if not days or weeks to get a great shot – most of it is waiting. Patience IS a virtue!

    So impressing! Clear and sharp, yet so small animals… It’s amazing how much we miss out on when we’re not looking close enough. Thank you for this!
