I am often asked the question at art shows or when Iâm speaking on photography, if Iâm ever worried about being attacked by the wild animals I photograph. I tend to just laugh it off with a joke or tell the audience that has never even occurred to me when Iâve been out in the wild. After all, Iâm just a photographer, Iâm invincible. This train of thought changed dramatically for me on the afternoon of July 9, 2013.
