As the course of this little boyâ€™s childhood took shape thatâ€™s exactly what happened from junior wrestling to junior hight and finally, a state champion was crown. Evan Delong started this course over 10 years ago and now as he prepares to advance to live another part of this dream, a collegiate wrestler for the Division I Clarion Eagles. Evan is looking forward to this phase in his life.
We are now in my favorite season of the year, spring. From a nature photographerâ€™s standpoint, this is the best and most exciting time to get outdoors with a camera. Spring migrations, nesting, denning and most notability the increased activity of all wildlife, brings any nature photographer out of hibernation. This spring in particular I am anxious to get out and about after nursing a bad foot for a few weeks this winter. My signs of spring are the arrivals of the red-winged blackbirds and turkey vultures.
