On a grey dawn I watched this reddish egret do his predatory dance as he stirred up the waters with his antics....pausing only every few seconds to strike at a fish.

His movements reminded me of an avenger appearing out of the mist and wreaking havoc wherever he went...

We were driving through Grand Teton National Park and saw this wild fox trotting down the walking path beside the road.....I slammed on the brakes and jumped out as he continued trotting.

Then a deer jumped out of the bushes and ran across the path and the fox stopped for just a split second and I was able to capture him as you see here...

Ever since I met your daughter and first saw this photo, the same thought crossed my mind again and again.


How did you do it, Sgt. Brooks?


How did you get back into that B-17 Flying Fortress seventeen more times after that first flight?


The first time was frightful - but you didn't know that first time how it felt to have a Luftwaffe Messerschmidt blasting away at your waist gunner's side window with nothing between the two of you besides a thin layer of easily penetrated steel. You didn't know that first time how it felt to be at a warm base in England at 3:30 a.m. and then be fighting for your life in the skies over Europe six hours later.


You knew how to shoot, but you'd never had to defend yourself before with a machine gun against scores of enemy planes that were diving from all directions and were close enough for you... more »

Ever since I met your daughter and first saw this photo, the same thought crossed my mind again and again.


How did you do it, Sgt. Brooks?


How did you get back into that B-17 Flying Fortress seventeen more times after that first flight?


The first time was frightful - but you didn't know that first time how it felt to have a Luftwaffe Messerschmidt blasting away at your waist gunner's side window with nothing between the two of you besides a thin layer of easily penetrated steel. You didn't know that first time how it felt to be at a warm base in England at 3:30 a.m. and then be fighting for your life in the skies over Europe six hours later.


You knew how to shoot, but you'd never had to defend yourself before with a machine gun against scores of enemy planes that were diving from all directions and were close enough for you to see the faces of the determined pilots whose mission was to bring your plane down.


And then there was the flak - so heavy that when you looked ahead it looked like not a soul could survive the thousands of explosions that covered the sky.


But you didn't scream and you didn't cry and you and your crew flew forward into the fray because someone had to do it.


The first time was brutal but the next seventeen are too hard for me to imagine. You knew what you faced and you went up voluntarily again and again and again.


You went up again after attending a funeral of your friend, the bombardier who was just in front of you in the plane, and whose head you cradled as he lay dying on the floor of the B17.

You felt his last heartbeat...and heard his last breath.


How did you do it?


You went up and you must have stared straight ahead knowing that the odds were stacked completely against you and that it was only a matter of time before it was your turn to pay the price.


You went up after a burning piece of shrapnel had wounded you and burned your flesh - enough to hurt like hell but not enough to keep you from your next mission.


How did you do it?


You went back up when every time you returned to base, there were a dozen empty bunks in the hut that you shared with other B-17 crews.


You watched ground personnel empty the foot lockers of the lost and you saw it happen again and again...and again.


But you went back up. You didn't call in sick. You didn't ask to be put on desk duty. You didn't falter when your country needed you to accomplish a task that might be the difference between winning and losing a battle - and a war.


You laid in bed at night and surely couldn't get the sounds out of your head. The explosions, the rattle of the guns, the whirring of the propellers, the sudden lift when "bombs away" was called... and the turn back to base as the fighters descended in a desperate attempt to cripple you beyond relief.


How did you do it, Sgt. Brooks?


And on that eighteenth mission, when the enemy finally set your plane on fire - how did you jump out of a burning B-17 with only seconds to spare. How did you look out at the countryside as you floated down and wonder if you were parachuting to sudden death in the air - or painful torture on the ground when the Gestapo tracked you down?


How did you survive two years in Stalag 17 with little to eat and no hope for rescue for many long months?


Today's generation complains loudly when they have to stand in line, or when their safe travel plans are disrupted by weather. They complain that the steak is too rare or that the sundae doesn't have enough nuts.


A hardship for them is a delay on the freeway due to construction.


Their worst day is better than your best days throughout the war.


But you did your duty and you came back and lived a complete life. You raised a family. You worked hard and paid your taxes. You never talked about the war.


You were a citizen warrior and you did what was asked of you. Quietly. Without fanfare.


You did it as a volunteer - for the millions back in the States who never felt the hiss of a bullet as it whizzed past your goggles so close that you felt the heat.


I do not know how you did it.

How you did it again and again when you knew - truly knew - that you were likely to be killed every time you went into that Flying Fortress.


You are a hero to me, Sgt. Brooks. Not for that first flight, but for the seventeen flights afterwards when you voluntarily went back up in harm's way with death knocking on your door.


As a grateful citizen, I'll admire what you did for the rest of my life.


And today - as tears stream down my face while I think of a young man laying in that bunk and then getting up and facing death daily on behalf of my country, I still can't answer the question.


How DID you do it?___

When this young bull bison raised his head and stared straight at me earlier this year, I felt a instinctive rush of fear inside my being...

I knew it was very unusual for him to raise his head above his shoulders and I also knew that this move was precursor to a charge.

My heart was pounding as I tried to get a focus lock on the eyes while my brain was telling me to get behind the car.

He was about twenty five yards away and he was looking me straight in the eye.

I felt scared. I felt alive. I felt the fear of generations of genes inside me that had laid dormant all these years.

One second, calm. The next second, fear on a primal stage that touched every nerve ending. Fight or flight.

Fight or flight....

Were you there for a minute with me?

I hope so.

I have seen a lot of moose in my time....but seeing this one up close and personal as he prepared to receive a challenge from a younger bull was the most heart pounding photo work I've done in a long time.

Let me take you to the moment.

We were standing about 30 yards away and the challenger was approaching from the left...and then this veteran started making grunt like noises that got louder and louder. The youngster then began making the same type of sounds. They were communicating with an unmistakable tone...full of fight and determination.

There was a light rain and I was equally conscious of the people with me and I kept saying "stay by the SUV and be ready to jump in"... and "keep the doors open". The flight or fight adrenalin rush was kicking in and I felt it hard to hold the camera without shaking.

I'm trying to lock focus and watch the young bull with my peripheral vision while the drama is unfolding before me. There is electricity in the air and my heart is beating so fast I believe I can feel it pushing my shirt out.

The young bull walks two steps closer. The veteran raises his head...

Talk about feeling alive....were you there with me for a second or two? I hope so.___
