The difference between seeing animals and truly seeing an animal is simply a matter of willingness to pay attention; to observe. This project has been on-going for more than 3 years and likely will continue indefinitely. I am fortunate to not only live in an area with abundant and diverse wildlife and domestic animals but to share my world with quite a few. Taking my time to observe and striving to see the individual within is the focus of this project.
