Great job son. We just got our copy and Ammi and I both enjoyed the book. The photos clearly show your love for the animals and in many of them it even looks like you talked the animals into posing for you!

As the director of the Oklahoma City Zoo, I want to thank you for doing such a wonderful job capturing the beauty of the animals. It is difficult enough to capture the external beauty of the animals in a photograph, but to reveal insight into their behavior, as you have done, is inspiring.
