" My adventure friends are: a camouflage box,
hours of waiting, the cold days of January,
the sultriness of July, the countless mosquitos,
the fog, and my inseparable photographic camera ".
"…the true nature photographer is first a naturalist and then a photographer. To him, the safety of the animals he photographs is always more important than the resulting picture.…”
