Dear Friends -

Throughout my career, I've used my love of photography and writing to "give back" to the natural world.  Not to make money or achieve fame, but simply to help increase the understanding of and appreciation for the incredible wealth and wonder of natural resources we have here on earth.  It's my profound hope that my work shown here and published elsewhere will inspire you to take your family out and explore the great outdoors.  To, just for a while, leave your cell phones, computers, tablets, and other electronic tethers behind and join the great and revered naturalists of yesteryear - John Muir, Aldo Leopold, Rachel Carson, Charles Darwin, Henry David Thoreau, Carl Linnaeus, Dian Fossey, Jane Goodall, Roger Tory Peterson, John James Audubon - in "networking with nature".  Watch, observe, introduce yourself, and even get to know the wild birds and other marvelous creatures with which we share life on earth!

With sincerest thanks -

Budd Titlow
