Sorry for the delay, but I just got back from a hiking vacation in the Columbia River Gorge and may have a couple of pictures later. But I think Roman may have that neighborhood covered pretty well!
The editor of the Conservationist knows I do a lot of avian photography and was looking for something colorful that might go with the featured article about cedar glades.
I had done a couple of articles for them in the past, including one on Tennessee fungi and a couple of photo shoots for other articles and have a good, friendly relationship with them. Networking is important in the process of doing free work, just as it is in getting paying gigs!
The most interesting work I have had in the mag was some photos of freshwater jellyfish! Who knew?
