The Photographers

Red Fox, Denali National Park. © Curt Given 2009.Partners and brothers Curt and Cary Given make up the team of Given Photography and they have generously and graciously consented to let me use their beautiful pictures on Nature Me.

It is an understatement to say that nature photography is their passion--it's their life! For nearly three decades, they have traveled extensively, exploring our natural world, taking thousands of pictures of animals, birds, flowers, trees and landscapes. 

Their mission is simple:to inspire others to love, protect and value our earth as they do.

I hope their photographs inspire YOU. To view more beautiful pictures like this red fox, go to givenphoto.com.
