When I was a child, I dreamed of becoming a veterinarian.  Although my life didn't exactly turn out that way, my compassion for animals still remains. I believe that every living thing (aside from a few various lowcountry insects) is precious and should be celebrated. Each creature has its own purpose, its own agenda, but they all work together to create a vast and stunning ecosystem. These images are meant to inspire an appreciation for wildlife and help others realize the necessity of protecting these incredible creatures for the enjoyment of future generations.


"Our task must be to free ourselves, by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures,

and the whole of nature.. And its beauty."
~Albert Einstein
