Winter is the time of year when many mammals like the “woolly photographer” hibernate. These cautious animals rarely leave their den during the cold, damp days of winter although they can often be found at or near the various watering holes in the area. This is especially true of rainy Sunday afternoons here in North America.
Yet, every once in a while you’ll find one of these creatures wandering the countryside in search of prey, in this case a subject to photograph. Once the “woolly photographer” scents his prey, the chase is on and these less than graceful creatures can be seen lugging Gitzo tripods on their shoulders and
running stumbling through the urban savanna with one thought on their minds; “f/5.6 or f/8 ???”. Its truly an awesome sight to behold.
However, many of the lesser known “woolly photographers” are late to the chase and end up living off the remaining scraps of little known subjects such as this. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, even in the land of the “woolly photographer” its survival of the fittest.
