Hi Rod, I've been scanning through your plant photos. Glorious! There is one in particular i'd like to ask you about, the one labeled Trifolium variegatum. This is actually T. albopurpurem (rancheria clover), although it has unusually extensive whiye on the banner & wings. I've been studying clovers for 20 years now and lately concentrating on the albopurp. complex. I wonder if there is any chance you could collect a sample of this for DNA analysis next spring? Leaf samples, or better yet, seed. Material from the tomcat clover would also be appreciated, or any other annual clover in the area. I have no material from anything that far north so far.
Much appreciate any help. Will send my address when the time comes. And thanks again for all those beautiful pictures!
Saw you had some stuff for sale on FM. I bought the 400 5.6 from you years ago. Just thought I'd say Hi.
Hi -- I'm interested in a photo you had posted a couple of years ago of Erythronium quinaltense that you described as part of a population with all white tepals in an area you were monitoring. My e-mail is djross at pastconnections dot com -- sorry, I don't know if this is protected from spam spiders :-)
Dear Mr. Gilbert,
I am writing to notify you that I would like to use some of your top-notch bird images shown here on the pbase website. I am a volunteer for the U.S. Forest Service in the Coconino National Forest/Red Rock District in Sedona, Arizona. I am assisting with the preparation of a Powerpoint presentation on beginning birding that will be used strictly for educational purposes for tourists and local residents of the Red Rock District area. There will be no compensation for myself, for the presenter or for the USFS in the use of this presentation, and the presentation is not intended for distribution, sale, or any revenue-generating interest. The intent is simply to introduce casual birders or those interested in the hobby with species that can be found in the area, and to further their interest in the pursuit of birdwatching. Of course, special acknowledgement and appreciation will be provided within the presentation to you and any other sources who have granted permission to me for use of their photos.
Please advise if you have any concerns about my use of your photos in my presentation. I will be happy to answer any questions you might have. Thank you for your consideration.
Thank you for posting these photos, and for generously making them available for educational use. I work for a non-profit called WenatcheeOutdoors and am creating a basic birding slideshow for hikers. Not only are your bird photos beautiful, but they also show clear, detailed field markings, which will be ultra helpful for the new birders I'm trying to reach.
My name is Austan and I am a journalist for the Army. I recently wrote a story about wildlife and habitat conservation on Joint Base Lewis-McChord. I want to say “Thank You” for allowing me to use your photos; they are awesome. If and when the article is published I will send you a link.
My name is Maralyne and I am an intern with Sierra Club Canada. Sierra club is a non-profit environmental organization. We are currently seeking photographs of endangered species to include in a book that would be used as a part of a fundraising and awareness building campaign. Would you be willing to donate a picture of the Tall Woolly-heads, and the Taylor's checkerspot butterfly for use in our book. Full credit will be given to you as the photographer. The aim of this fundraising opportunity is also to encourage the public to be more aware of the wide variety of species that may be lost in the future.
Sierra Club Canada has been active in Canada since 1963, originally as chapters of the U.S.-based Sierra Club. Our national office opened in 1989, and in 1992 we incorporated to create a truly national presence. Today, we have five chapters across the country: British Columbia Chapter, Prairie Chapter, Ontario Chapter, Quebec Chapter and Atlantic Canada Chapter - in addition to our dozens of local groups in communities all across Canada from Cape Breton to Vancouver Island. The Sierra Youth Coalition is our youth affiliate. Sierra Club Canada is the agent of Sierra Club Canada Foundation, a registered charitable organization with the Canada Revenue Agency.
Sierra Club Canada has earned an excellent reputation within its constituency and the broader public for its thoroughly researched positions and for refusing to compromise on its ideals. Sierra Club Canada believes in the power of connection, of people everywhere working together to create a better world for all.
Thank you for your time and consideration,
just so beautiful, and thanks so, so much for making these available for use. I came to browse for a good Microseris laciniata shot on Karen's recommendation (after losing a whole cameraful of my own) and ended up spending half my afternoon dreamily gazing at photo after photo. Thanks and hope to see you one day soon. --Susan Waters
Rod Gilbert you are a genius!
Your work is so beautiful. I love to browse thru your photos and wish that I could duplicate your talent. When I figure out which one I like best I will let you know. :)
Thank you for sharing your wonderful photos.
Your photos are wonderful. What a gift that you allow them to be used to help conserve these special places and species! I am creating a display board for the North Puget Sound Prairie Working Group. It is comprised of several organizations (more at: northsoundprairies.org). Your photos are an essential component of the display. Would you mind contacting me? I would like to request a couple photos in higher resolution, if they're available.
Most appreciative, Cyndi
Thanks again for allowing the use of these magnificent photos. I work for the Cascade Chapter of the Sierra Club and we would love to use one of your pictures on a presentation for our Wild Olympics Campaign. Thanks again for the great work.
This is one of those sites that you can go to to look at all sorts of beautiful stuff. I always am able to come back and find a magnificent photo, that I've never seen anything like it before.
Thanks so much for providing all these beautiful photos. I am working with the Washington Native Plant Society (wnps.org) and we are planning on using one of your photos of a hummingbird for a poster to advertise Native Plant Appreciation Week (for a talk on using native plants for wildlife.) We will definitely credit you. Thanks so much for allowing nonprofits to use your work!

Rod, What a wonderful web site. One which I will visit again. The photographs are magnificent. Harry Thomas
Thanks for making your photos available. I have borrowed a few images of the Northern Harrier that may be used in an interpretive panel at Bottle Beach State Park located on Grays Harbor. We will most definately provide you with credit for your photos if they are used. Particularly in these very tight budget times your generosity is much appreciated.

Your photo galleries are exquisite. I have borrowed three images of Puget Sound Prairies and may use them in a poster I'm preapring. You will be credited for any of your photos if we use them. Many thanks -- Ted

Do you sell prints of your work?
Fantastic set of galleries Rod!

Holy cow! Your photos are the cat's pajamas! I live in nerve-racking New York City and I enjoyed perusing your photos -- they're restful to the eyes and the mind.
Thanks for the gift.

Excellent site! Both educational and inspiring! It makes my shutter finger itch. Many thanks/~m
I'm going to model some of my work after you in the future...as soon as I get a new camera.
You have many excellent images in your galleries, I've really enjoyed looking at your photos & will be back again soon for another look.

Looks like you did some housecleaning. Looks good. I've been meaning to comment on the spotted owl. Like tell me again why we spent all this money on equipment. Bet you were feeling some excitement, then.
Thanks for sharing your images. You have some jaw dropping pics--the Red-breasted Sapsucker and Mountain Goat in particular. I routed in via the Tweeters list serve.
