How to take amazing wildlife photos

This story was originally published in March 2019.

While researching over a decade of wildlife photography, I was amazed to see how many different animals I had been lucky enough to photograph while exploring Maine, and the fond memories that came from those images.

I had almost forgotten about the beaver I saw carrying firewood across a pond in Aroostook County, and the newborn fawn I saw wandering through a field near Moosehead Lake. Then there was the time I visited Eastern Egg Rock, an island covered in nesting puffins, and the boat ride during which I found myself surrounded by a pod of Atlantic white-sided dolphins. All this in Maine.
