Photo by @williamalbertallard | South Dakota, 2006. The picture of hunters seen in their blaze orange garments, shotguns held aloft, just beyond the pickup truck in the foreground with a pheasant rooster lying still alongside a bale of straw, was not published in the essay I did called "Hunters," published in the November, 2007 issue of National Geographic.  Both the magazine designer and I wanted this to be the lead picture but it lost out to another image of mine featuring hunters in a vast central Montana field rehabbed by the conservation group @pheasants_forever.  The beauty of the pheasant is apparent in even in death although the brilliance of its coloration I believe lessens in death.  When I was assigned to do the photography for this essay I really thought it would be popular with readers. I feared the recoil by those who might find killing a deer, such a graceful and docile animal, very distasteful if displayed in the magazine.  I could not have been more wrong.  The story "Hunters" received more mail than any other story published that year and response by readers was six to one positive.  I  believe the reason was very much influenced by the information given in the article about how hunting is part of the overall effort of conservation and managing wildlife in our country; from license fees wildlife refuges are helped to benefit bird watchers and those who simply enjoy the many areas set aside for wildlife habitat. 
#followme @williamalbertallard for more images of "Hunters" and other assignments spanning a five-decade career.

Space bubbles! Our Spitzer Space Telescope captured this image of burning, bubbling star formation in the Cat’s Paw Nebula. As gas and dust compress to form stars, the gas around these areas heats up and pressurizes—giving the appearance of bubbles. Radiation from the hot stars also causes these bubbles to glow brightly. Spitzer is an infrared telescope, which can help us see through thick clouds of gas and dust in ways our eyes cannot. Telescopes like Spitzer help us create the most comprehensive and accurate map of our galaxy.

Photo by @stevewinterphoto | Jaguars love the water - this male jag is looking for caiman for his dinner - shot in August in the Pantanal of Brazil. 
Our animal family is so much like us - they find mates, they have kids, they have to feed themselves and their families. If we can find a way to believe they think, feel and have emotions we will all be better humans. We need to treat them better and find a way to ensure their future on this planet. They are keystone species in their ecosystems, though we as humans are not.

Jaguars are the 3rd largest of the big cats. Found from US / Mexico border to northern Argentina. Jaguars have rebounded in this area where 95% of the land is privately owned. In the past many ranchers would kill the cats when they ate their cattle. Today in this area tourism brings in much more money to the local economy than cattle ranching. So the jaguar population is increasing. But revenge killings of jaguars happen close to this area and all throughout the jaguars range. Also poaching for skins, bones and teeth is growing for the first time since the 1970’s to feed the demand for people who think they receive the “power of the jaguar through their teeth”, Chinese Traditional Medicine and now Luxury items from endangered species. “When the buying stops, the killing can too.” @wildaid 
My first story with big cats was the 1st @natgeo Jaguar story 20 years ago! It has changed my life working with the magical and magnificent cats of the world. Animals have emotions just like we have.

Follow me @stevewinterphoto to see more images and THANKS!

Cheat meal cookie train 🍪🚂 rolls on. 
Helluva sugar/ Netflix combo...
My tiny (and by tiny I mean f*cking ginormous) signature DJ double chocolate and peanut butter chip cookies with creamy peanut butter layered in the middle. 
And great doc about the icon Bob Marley and an assassination attempt made on his life in 1976. 
Bob’s son, Rohan Marley was my teammate when we played ball together down at THE U. Good times when he would share stories with us about his legendary father and their family. “Sistah, I bring the ghetto uptown” 👏🏾👊🏾✊🏾

“It's good to remember that not everything, or anyone, is always how it looks outside. Don't you agree?” writes photographer and student Topi Leikas (@topinlife). “The longer I have watched it, the more I like what it represents to me,” he says of his #WHPmirrorimage submission, created with his brother in Southern Finland.
