Neil Baalman is a high school sophmore from Old Monroe, Missouri. His love of the Mississippi River and the abundance of wildlife it sustains consume his everyday thoughts and dreams. An ideal day in his life would begin by wading knee deep in a wetlands marsh before sunrise in hopes of capturing images of wildfowl in action.
Neil's creative vision and undaunted patience has allowed him to more fully appreciate the wonders of nature while capturing forever images of their splendor. In these galleries Neil shares a few images from his adventures that will hopefully inspire the viewer to better appreciate nature and to seek their own.
