Description A feeding flock of Snow Geese take flight after being scared from the cornfield at Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico. Often it's a coyote that spooks them or other predators. While not equal in flock size to the morning fly out, these 'fright flights' are an impressive spectacle in and of themselves.
Michael Menefee, Fort Collins, Colorado Member Since March 2007 Artist Statement Welcome to my online gallery space & thank you for visiting-- I hope you enjoy my images.
I have long had a passion for creating fine art photographs. A large chunk of the work I do could be labeled as nature photography and really it's no surprise. Conservation biology is a central area of interest for me, which is reflected in the subjects I chose. Photography can pair well with birding and botany, two other activities I am passionate about.
Often with my photography I hope to evoke the same sense of childhood wonder and appreciation for nature that experiencing it first-hand instills in me. I hope you find my images to be a fun diversion.
