Jim Wilce delights in sharing what he sees out in the world. This long time resident of Flagstaff seeks out our local birds, insects, and small mammals- photographing these creatures in the midst of their ordinary lives.

Jim’s portraits from their ordinary moments provide delightful hints of the richness in our natural world, with all its interconnections.

All of these images are from the Flagstaff area, with some taken right here at the Arboretum.

Jim hopes these glimpses of our northern Arizona neighbors will enrich your life, as they do his.

Each 5 x 7 card contains a beautiful nature inspired quote and the location where the photo was taken is on the back.
