Danny Hofstadter is a spotted owl biologist by profession and a nature photographer by passion. He has worked with these wonderful, yet threatened birds for the past five years. During last three years he has traversed Northern California, both in the coastal redwood forests and in the forests of the Sierra Nevada, seeking out some very cagy owls who tuck themselves away in dark canyons among other elusive wildlife. Though he sees himself first as a field biologist, he is deeply passionate about his photography. It is a tremendous force that drives him to document how these owls live and the mysterious, yet beautiful forests in which they live.
