National wildlife refuges are wonderful places for nature photography – for visitors and employees. Tom Koerner is project leader at Seedskadee and Cokeville Meadows National Wildlife Refuges in Wyoming. He has taken thousands of photos that celebrate the refuges’ wildlife and high desert sagebrush plains. “The natural world can bring out a lot of emotions that connect us to it,” Koerner says. “It can make you laugh or cry, bring joy or amazement. This [white-tailed jackrabbit] photo is far from perfect … I just like it, and it makes me laugh a little.” See more of his favorite photos and why he took them in our story.
