About the Authors
Dick Petrie’s photographic work has been on the cover of wild life magazines, calendars, and commercial promotional materials.
"My goal is to put as much joy into each image as possible. Reflecting creation is a passion, a joy and a privilege. My work is not work but a passionate presentation using the God given gift of photography. My only regret is that I did not start this part of my life much sooner, my life would only have been richer. As “Trevor Petersen said, “There comes a time when one must risk something , or sit forever with one’s dreams.” I no longer sit and wait."
Dick passed away in 2014. This book was in the planning stages at that time. It is dedicated to his memory and love of photographing wildlife.

Creating these books fits with my style and helps accomplish my mission: sharing The Word, enabling others to develop their relationship with the Heavenly Father in a fun and personal way. Digesting ALL of His Great Works."
