Several years ago I gave myself a photographic assignment: I wanted to shoot the elusive, endangered, tiny salt-marsh harvest mouse for our growing archive, which documents restoration progress in the salt ponds over the past ten years. No one had been able to do this for years, and people who needed an image of the little critter had to rely on old stock photos that got used over and over again. Long story short, “Salty” made it to the cover of the current (summer) issue of Bay Nature Magazine! Here’s a link to a blog about how the photo was taken: http://baynature.org/2013/06/26/filmmaker-judy-irving-gets-her-mouse/

And here’s a cropped image that shows “Salty” in close-up:


You can access the entire photo archive at the Resources Legacy Fund, which helped fund the ten-year project along with the California Coastal Conservancy: http://resourceslegacyfund.smugmug.com/

Funding has run out for now, but with Salty on Bay Nature’s cover, we’re finishing up in style!
