Just returned from an amazing trip up to northern Montana for our first ever Greater Sage-Grouse workshop. Thanks to Dennis Jorgensen at the World Wildlife Fund Northern Great Plains Office and friend and photographer Eric Rock for making this happen. We are looking at putting together another trip for Spring of 2015 and will have details soon.
What an amazing experience to spend each morning immersed in the Sage-Grouse’s habitat photographing an incredible bird in northern Montana’s beautiful, immense prairie. We had great dramatic spring weather and cool mornings adding nice elements to the images we were able to capture each day out on the Lek. We also saw our first long-billed curlew of the year and many other bird species around the area.
I am definitely looking forward to making this an annual workshop here in Montana and it will be a great way to continue to bring awareness and support to the Greater Sage-Grouse.
