And here you'll find wildlife and landscape images with a twist—A unique perspective, unusual subject, a creative angle—that you might not find on other websites.

Sparky Stensaas is a photographer, naturalist, author, publisher living in the North Woods of Minnesota. He is co-owner of Kollath-Stensaas Publishing (www.kollathstensaas.com) and owner of Stone Ridge Press (www.stoneridgepress.com).
