About the Author
Ron Hayes is a wildlife photographer and filmmaker. He resides in Wyoming where his family has been since the late 1800s. He has a degree in wildlife biology, and this knowledge base allows him to capture behaviors on camera that most would never notice. See more of Ron's work at westernwildlifeimages.com, and on the Wild and Exposed podcast, wildandexposed.com, and the Wild and Exposed podcast channel on YouTube. Casey Rislov treasures time with her family in the wide-open spaces of the West. Her sons' curiosity is wilder than the wildlife on these grand adventures, and her Mother's Day gifts have included rocks, squirmy worms, and even a horned toad. Casey Rislov has a bachelor's degree in biology from the University of Wyoming and a master's degree in education from Montana State University.
