Biophilia: human's intrinsic affinity for the natural world.
Releasing a Red-throated Loon (Gavia stellata).
This loon was brought it to Wild at Heart Wildlife Refuge Centre after being found in a smelter. It was in good shape, but was stranded on land. After monitoring it a couple of days, we released it and let it continue its migration.
(Note the lack of any red on its throat - this is their non-breeding plumage.)
I’ve been toying with the idea of selling prints (or even books) for a while now, but I wasn’t sure if there was demand for it. So are any of you interested in purchasing prints, and if so, which images would you like to see as prints?
