    Thank you, Mia, for nudging me — through your example — toward higher standards with my photography (even though on my best days, I strive to execute about 70 percent of the quality you post every single day). I value your your inspiration, your ethics, and your artistic perspective which shines through each image and animal. Wishing you a wonderful 2013 behind the lens!

    Happy New Year and wish you happy birding and enjoying the nature again like you have been doing in such a fantastic way with very professional pictures and very interesting life stories of the animals. I’m happy I joined your blog, as I’m missing your pictures on NatureShare.

    That is because you ARE an amazing photographer! I can’t wait to see and learn more from you! So glad we connected.

    What a wonderful year and more you have had. You have opened my eyes to seeing what a beautiful part of the country you live in.It is an ideal place for great landscape photography and the animals and birds that we don’t have in Australia are amazing.
    Happy New Year Mia

    Errata: I meant “unparalleled”.

    Happy new year Mia, and thanks for sharing the wild side of Utah with so much high quality photographic work and unparalled narratives of your life and work, which I find intellectually stimulating, and of critical importance to wildlife conservation movements and entities. Thanks again.

      Thank you Susan, I couldn’t pick my favorite 12 images of 2012 so I just grabbed some I’d taken in 2012 and made this collage.
