I also follow Jeff on Flickr. . Looks like the last time he posted there was a year ago. . That's sad for those who enjoy seeing his photos, and now don't get to see any new ones.

I have tried to message him there at Flickr, but he hasn't responded in over a week.

I hope he's okay.

.

Yes I also hope he is doing OK.......

Me too. Jeff's photos were an inspiration for me that I surely miss. Jeff's exceptional work without the latest and greatest $6k equipment had a calming effect on my never ending GAS pains.

Jeff is an extraordinary person with extraordinary giftedness.
His photography and encouragement was something I deeply valued.
His foray into the R was an example of being The Master over the equipment and he made it sing to his tune and the results defied pundits not quite there yet in embracing that technology.

I'm sure Jeff's photography lives on and there's much more to come.

Like others, I miss him here.

I'm sure Jeff is fine, has taken an occasional Fox photo and been filling cards with the Wolves lately, close shots of Wolves in thick timber, no idea how he does it as many of us have yet to see a wolf in the wild. To get pics of a wolf in thick cover in the bush country of Canada is one thing but to take images of them standing, running, sitting, and even curled up napping is not an easy task and he is doing just that. Hopefully he is just too busy enjoying where he lives, his family, friends and the wolves he is able to get close with to take the time to share. I too hope he is only taking a break, miss his images that are not only fantastic to view but animals and birds I may never encounter in their native habitat.

Bat in Costa Rica. These shoots are fun, this is the second time for me doing this. Spooky in the pitch black dark in the woods but really a blast

I am going to show my ignorance here.... how are you able to focus in the pitch black of the night?

Is that a spider to the left side of the bat?

Hi guys thank you I'm still traveling. But quickly this is a setup with five strobes and the camera pre-focused on the flower waiting for the bat to come, it takes a long time. Prefocus on fixed point and wait for the bat to fly into it just like with hummingbirds. As you might imagine you get a lot of blank frames and out of focus frames. But all you need is one good one for a night'swork
