Mammals Galore!

Mammals Galore!

Small change in the North American Nature Photography galleries!
For the past 6 or 7 years, my images of mammals were divided into four sub-galleries. One for rodents, small mammals, large mammals and marine mammals. I’m not sure why I chose that odd system at the time, but it I’ve been wanting to change it for a long time but never got around to it – until now. Now it has been redone and reworked into such a way that is more akin to biological taxonomy, like some other newly updated categories like lizards and wildflowers. Without further adieu, I present to you the twelve new mammal galleries!

I’d love to hear what you think of this new MAMMAL GALLERY! I know that now it looks like a bunch of unfinished galleries, but now I can concentrate on each one and fill them one at a time with unpublished photos that haven’t been picked out and edited from my backlog. I’ll use that as my motivation to fill them all up! Just leave your comments below – your feedback is very important to me!
