Moose Photography by Gary Gray
The Shiras Moose of Colorado.
Friendly BullThe morning I took this photo, this guy was standing alone in the woods next to the lake shore. My group walked right past him in the dark, less than 20 feet away. He grunted to let us know he was there and then casually walked out into the lake in front of us to feed on lake grass. An experience I will long remember.

Bird Photography by Gary Gray
A selection of some of my favorite bird photos.
Scarlet MacawWild macaw in Costa Rica. This bird was hanging out near the restaurant my wife and I were eating at. Totally habituated to humans, he ended up coming to our window and the waitress offered up her arm which he promptly jumped on. After touring the inside of the restaurant, she brought him back to our window and let him loose. He promptly flew about 20 feet away to a tree branch and looked back at us. Snap!
American Avocets MatingThese are very groovy birds. They have long thin legs that allow them to wade the shallows near shorelines of lakes looking for food. They have a very specific mating ritual. The male (on top) will lean towards his female of interest and flap his beak in the water for her to see. If she agrees to the terms, she\'ll dip down into the water and present herself to the male. In this photo, the male has just made his mount. Taken in May of 2012 at a local lake.
Mandarin Duck (male)One of the most beautiful ducks you\'ll ever see. This little fellow became quite a celebrity to the local photographers between 2010 and 2012, when it was living in Clear Creek, near Golden, Colorado. He had quite an attitude too. At first, the presence of this bird was only known to a few people, but as with anything unique in this world, once people found out about him, the word spread. The bird eventually died of some unknown illness in early 2013. Photo taken in October, 2012.
