Hey guys, hope you all have been well. I never got to share as many of this series as I wanted but here are some of my latest.
I am also very happy to say my Meet Your Neighbours images will be displayed in Everglades National Park this May. I started a Kickstarter http://kck.st/HHdjNk to help offset costs since it is a educational display.
Anyways, this was a very cooperative Red Rat(as most are) and I was able to get him posed nicely on this palmetto leaf. This is done in the field with a backlit plexi sheet and usually allows the animal to be sent back on its way in under 10 minutes. Some of my earlier images show the animal nicely but seem a bit stale so I have been trying to incorporate a bit more habitat where possible.
