"If man walks in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer.  But if he spends his days as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time, he is deemed an industrious and enterprising citizen." - Henry David Thoreau

Thank you for taking the time to visit my site.  None of the photographs on this site are for sale or self promotion - They are simply for your personal enjoyment.  My hope is that these galleries will raise an awareness of and preserve the beauty of the animals and locations I have captured for this and future generations.  Please take the time to visit my Links page for further information on the preservation of our wild spaces and the animals that call them home.   Rick Parsons
