Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
United States
I’m Zach. I’m an OK photographer, I think, with my favorite subject being the great outdoors, especially in the beautiful Centennial State. I was born, raised, and still live in the shadow of the Front Range in Jefferson County, Colorado. In the summer I can usually be found in my garden, or out with the chickens or hiking, backpacking and camping in the Rocky Mountains. In the fall and winter, I move east to the rivers, ponds and fields of corn stubble and winter wheat to hunt ducks and geese both with my Browning 12ga and my camera. I spent 4 years between Hawaii and Iraq on active duty in the Army where I married my "high school sweetheart" nearly 5 years ago and we have a 3 year old son. I currently do landscaping, going to school for natural resource management and am in the Colorado Army National Guard.
Interests

I have just spent the past week in the town of Longmont as a member of the Colorado National Guard in order to help the victims of the recent flooding. All I can say is wow, what an experience. It was at times heartbreaking and at others, heart lifting to see people who have gone through so much, some who literally lost every worldly possession they had and also to see a community pull together, put on their galoshes and work gloves and transform what was, on Saturday, nothing short of a warzone, into a living working city again. I also have to say thank you to that amazing community for the love, appreciation and cooperation and patience that they showed to me, and continue to show the Longmont Police Department and the Guard members who are still there as they to get their lives back to normal again.

There is still a lot of work to be done as construction crews race to get roads serviceable against the impending winter weather and home and business owners are still not able to reach their belongings. Water and utility services are still out in many areas and the flood heads eastward towards Nebraska. These people still need our thoughts and prayers as the struggle for them continues.

I appreciate good birding photos and I really don't mind hunters, esp. if they eat what they shoot. Nice gallery!

Thank you so much again for your kind words. I have been an admirer of your work for some time so it does mean a great deal to me.

Mallard breast cooked to a perfect medium rare in real butter with a red wine sauce is my absolute FAVORITE thing in the world. I dont find goose quite as good as a steak (which claims second place to wild duck) but it makes a good barbeque sandwitch or pot roast. Although I have heard white fronted geese (speckle bellies) taste much better then the Canada geese Im used to. This was my first year taking a snow (ross) goose, so we'll see if they are any good.

Well, good luck with the taste test! I'm really, really OK with hunters that eat their prey, not so much for hunters that kill for the killing's sake, if nothing else, it's so wasteful! Rob the Swash

I dont agree with that either. I look at poachers as little more then a common theif who are stealing game from the land, and from other, ethical sportsmen. I dont really partake in trophy hunting (hard to do when most geese and ducks look about the same more or less anyways) but the guys I know who do also bring the meat home with them too. Unfortunately for the animals and other hunters this is not always the case and it makes us all look bad.

Just dumb luck. When I went onto the DA home page it was just one of the "recently submitted" images.
