This was taken during a portrait assignment recently. Although the photo here is not the type of photo that would run, what appeals to me is the candidness. The assignment was to include this woman and her husband on their farm. While I was outside of their house looking for a location, she said she was going to walk to the cherry trees and see if the "bees were working." As soon as she had established that the bees were indeed working, she turned around and stood in place, which is when I made the picture.

TC Bear

Here's a bear that was walking through Traverse City last week. I arrived at the scene at 8:15 a.m. and the bear wasn't fully tranquilized and taken away until about 12:30 p.m. During that time between, it was running from yard to yard, jumping fences (tearing one section down) and stopping for some rests.
