There is scarcely any physical Casino in the globe that does not award bookofra diversion. The aforementioned physical money joints award 80 to 85 percent discounts on wins and risks of winning on bookofra are absolutely towering. One can play this amusement for fun in addition without any wagering.

Thanks for making the ordinary extraordinary!!!!! I believe in you and love you to the moon and back :)

Last night, walking into liquid assets and being so affected by those ravens- and there you were! It was so great being able to talk to you about it. I showed your website to some friends this morning and we collectively oohed and aahed at your work, specifically the gull on the danger sign, the sunset sand cranes, your famous barn owl, and of course the lovebird ravens! Thank you for your work it is an absolute joy, you are certainly incredibly talented. How exciting to have found my new favorite artist!

Beautiful Photography!!! Enjoyed all your wonderful shots... I gotta say the one that tickled me the most was the one at the end of your about me link. You like dogs and beer.. If you like dogs you must be ok lol.. Great work!
Comment by: mary Mosca
Your Aunt Ellen told me about your work. It is beautiful. You capture nature in it's purist form.With all the insanity in this world you manage to find serenity.
Comment by: Brant
Wonderful work. My mother, Mary Carr, turned me on to your work. It is truly amazing. I am finally pursuing my dreams and passions of photography and it is wonderful to know that other "self-taught" photographers can make it. Thank you for being an inspiration!

Harry Fuller sent your link to me. Lovely work. Owl series wonderful. All best!
Comment by: RaVen Sequoia
Rarely do I ever get moved by photographs of free animals in nature. To my surprise and delight, your photos truly moved me to tears. I love the unique and realistic portrayals of animals in different angles - most photographers tend to try to only take the best portrait. Lastly, your photos has a 3-D feel to it - crisp and clear!
Hope to someday buy some of your prints.

Daddy- your pictures are the best! We love you sooooooooo much! Love Savannah& Forest
Comment by: Tony Pecucci
Dan - Just thought I would check in and commend you on the great work you are doing. Every so often, I use you as an example to my students about someone who went out and followed their dream. Photos are great. Besides, how many of these people knew you when you were stationed in 516 Thompson Hall? Hope family is doing well. Kids look great. Take care.

Comment by: george martin
I first saw your Beautiful Photography in Ashland about a year ago. You were set up outside displaying your work, I had a short conversation with you about a Fine Arts Photographic Gallery I am persuing in Ashland in the near future.
I have been a photography since 1974. All my works were destroyed in the wild fires in southern california in 2007. It's never to late to start over. Your work is Truly Photographic Art, the Best I have seen in a Very long time.
Comment by: Scott Gregory
Very nice work!

Dan,The variety and lens work is outstanding. Your expanse across the states, east to west, really shows the variety of wildlife we are fortunate to have in this country.
Don't let that camera accumulate any dust --- great job!
Comment by: Brian
Met you in Ashland in June (I was the one gawking over your photos while my wife and friends kept wandering). Fantastic work!
Comment by: Philip Wolfmueller
Dan, I love your work. Meeting you this weekend in Brookings and hearing about how you just quit your job to follow your passion was very inspiring to me! Keep up the wonderful work.
Comment by: Kevin Williams
I bought one of your hummingbird photos at the "river walk" in Shady Cove. Just thought I'd let you know that I hung it up in my restaurant (SPICERS) with your business card on the front. OUTSTANDING SHOT!!
Thanks for the viewing pleasure! Kevin
Comment by: Kathy Wolf
Hi Dan, I was your first customer of the day in Lithia Park one day in July. I purchased a red tail hawk which is now framed and in a prime location in my library. I love it and can feel your love for these great raptors. I hope I can add another one sometime soon! Kathy
Comment by: Ted Pierce
What a wonderful eye. Great composition
Comment by: Lory Hlavka
Dan your work took my breath away!!!
Comment by: Jerry Werhane
Well now Danimal!!!! I was just put in touch with John by our mutual friends from the Wasted Youth and he told me about your new line of work and whereabouts. This is a far cry from the video footage from Florida with the snake freak,eah? Anyhoo... I am alive and well in Wisconsin with my lovely wife Shannon and two kids, Montana (15) & Gus (13). Please shoot me a message and let's talk live on the land line soon!!!
Comment by: Kathleen
Hi, Dan. I'm so glad I met you in Lithia Park and got on your mailing list. I enjoy your greeting cards posted at my work desk and reading your stories and plans. Your compassion and gratitude are exceeded only by your artistic ability. I'm ordering calendars! Thank you for opening your lives and passion to so many. Bless you all in the New Year!
Comment by: sheilah watson
I remember when you started taking pictures in Lakewood Forest Preserve in Illinois.
You have come a long long way in your pictures. They are just exquisite. We all are so happy and proud of you. Keep going. Love to your family. Sheilah
Comment by: Linda
Dan - I am a big Raven fan and a Fan of yours. I love your photos. I was wondering, before I order online, will you be at the SOU Holiday Bazaar/crafters sale in Ashland on the 6th of December?
Thank you for you great works of art in photography.
Comment by: Ellie Batchelder

Comment by: Douglas Robertson
Wow... Great photographs! Great bird shots. I don't think I've ever seen a cowbird look so extraordinary. Fantastic! I was connected through Towhee.net. I am new to digital photography and am absorbing equipment/technique tips. Keep up the beautiful work.
Comment by: Bob
Dan - Was pleased to see you as the featured portfolio on Nature Photgraphers website. Always look forward to your new pics when I have been away from your site for a while - love the Barn Owl on the fence post. Hi to Patty - Bob at Backus CCU
Comment by: Elizabeth von Radics
Absolutely LOVE the new one of the White City barn owl! AWESOME! Wow.
Comment by: Bob Lucas
Saw your work when I was in Oregon last summer. So glad I did.
Comment by: Kristie Pease
I live in Chico, Ca and saw your work at Vagabond Rose. The owl was breathtaking. I've been telling everyone at work to stop by to see your work. Hope to purchase one large photo and maybe, saving pennies, one of your smaller one.
I really like your work. Oh, the "surprise" you sent Marilyn was amazing.
Comment by: Barbara Beattie
Dan--Your photography is stunning. So many of your shots just take my breath away. You have a real talent, and thank you for sharing your work with the world. :) I've just ordered a couple sets of notecards that I plan to use as New Year's greetings and I'll be sure to plug your wonderful artistry. Best wishes (from the editor you met in Florida).
Comment by: Gretchen Breckenridge
I visited your city in August of 2005 and purchased some of your incredible art. You should explore photography in Louisiana. There is a lake in central Louisiana (Lake Martin) where these incredible pink breasted birds nest by the thousands - always on the same days looking for mates. I have forgotten the name but you probably know. The Atchafalaya basin is also a photographer's dream.
Comment by: John Sully
I loved your wildlife photographs. They are great.
Good luck John
Comment by: Annette
Looking forward to seeing your Water Ouzel prints next weekend. Glad to meet a fellow Ouzel fan. Nice site and beautiful pictures. We'd be interested in your newsletter.
Comment by: Caroline and Billy Brander
Hey Uncle Dan!!!
Billy and I just spent half an hour on Thanksgiving looking at your pictures. They're SO beautiful! (especially the one of the deer in Michigan!).
Comment by: Michael Wade
The new photos look great. Hope to see you next time you're in Chicago.
Comment by: Kim Sheahan
I was getting ready for a fieldtrip and doing research on Hawks and I thought of you. I typed in your name and the first sight I picked was Frustration. I placed a comment there, but thought I'd try this one also. This was my response to Frustration.
Yes that Coyote picture is great!!! Look at the expression you caught on his face. His position is great for viewing how a coyote looks, and its that Elster color combination that I will always adore! Nothing fake, no bright popping at you colors, that are far and few between in reall nature. When I typed in your name this was the first sight I found....kind of funny isn't it? You will always have it...don't ever down play it...you already know you are talented..remember that! Each night when I sit down in my living room, I look at my Elster pictures and I think of you and how awesome your pictures are! Thank you for what you give me each night that I come home. Miss you Kim
Comment by: Steve
Dan, simply excellent stuff. Keep burning the fire (and the files!). Thanks for your inspiring work...
Comment by: Angela @ Hummingbird Hill
Just wanted to say again THANK YOU so for those stunning photos you gave me the hummingbirds and of "Fire". They are just spectacular. That was so very generous of you. I hope to see you in 2008 for more red-tailed hawk action in my tree. Take care. Angela
Comment by: jai vasicek
Your photography is incredible. Love it.
Comment by: jean and bill geiger
Dan: you and your wife and your cannine are the best of all photographers and environmental people.
You see things so many of us do not see, when you do ur photographing. Bless you for reminding us. It will be a forgotten planet if we don't wake up. Wish the politicians could understand our planet better and not be so political and afraid to speak up!! Love you, from bill, jean and cindy poodle geiger
p. s. my deer photo which u did and we bought in Venice Fla in 06 from you, is BEAUTIFUL AND SO REAL!!!
Comment by: Tzila "Z" Duenzl
I met you this Saturday (8-11-07) at the "Artisan's Market" in Ashland. I appreciate you sharing you answering my 'aspiring Nature photographer' questions, and sharing your resource for the cellephane envelopes!! Thanks Your work is great. I was immediately drawn to it because I saw in it the 'witness' moments: being totally in Nature presents those opportunities, and you have captured many very well. Your work is more 'intimate' and less 'glamour', a very good thing for this avid Naturalist to see in someone's work. Thanks. I am greatly inspired.
Comment by: judy squier
I missed your wonderful booth in Ashland this past weekend. Are you okay?
You're my one and only, favorite artist there. When you're not there, why go?
Comment by: Laurta Sederberg
I so enjoyed your work when you came to Lake Almanor. Thanks for sharing via the Web.
Comment by: Bernadette Miller
I am blown away by the feeling I have when looking at your art!! I am a freak about red-tailed hawks, they stir my soul and your pictures capture that!! Florida has provided great sitings of the birds and I am so glad that you have captured their glory!!
Comment by: Susan &Alex
Hi! What a wonderful way to start a lovely Sunday. Thinking of you and SOOOO amazed by you guys!
Comment by: sandy cathcart
I Loooooove your towhees and cowbird. Wow! Awesome work, Dan.
Comment by: John Borucki
Thanks for the feedback. It means a lot to hear something good from a photographer that is as good as you. If it was not for that tree that I bought from you I probably wouldn’t even have a camera…so much activity…lots of inspiration…and the golds look really good against the spring blooms. Thanks again and keep doing what you do so well.
Comment by: Jeff Morey
We happened across your wonderful work in Ashland when we were visiting from Eugene last weekend. We'll be down again in 2 weeks when you'll be at the MidSummer's Dream event in Ashland...hope to meet you!
Comment by: Angela Bongiovanni
I'm so happy to have met someone as nuts about red-tailed hawks than me! Your photos are first-class. Glad our pathes crossed.
Comment by: Taren
You are always an inspiration :)

Comment by: Jean Masukevich & clan
Truly spectacular work, Dan! It is so fun to watch as you fine tune your talent for capturing miraculous and ordinary maoments in nature. The photoes take my breath away and leave me hungry for more. Good thing you keep delivering the goods. The websight looks awesome. Your hard work and perseverance will surely pay off. We believe in you and your dream. You are making a difference in a world that needs people who care deeply - like you! Much love and blessings to you.

Have you ever done a Flamico card? There are still crazy people into the Flamincos...believe it or not.
Comment by: Paula Sendar
Very nice dan. I will keep these in mind.

Comment by: MAMABEAR
Dan, The Elster Photography site continues to make me so proud of you.
The picture of Chief and Coco...they
look so regal, like kings of the forest.
We join you and Patty as you mourn the loss of Chief.
Comment by: Brandon Goldman
I've just spent a considerable amount of time browsing through your amazing portfolios. Great work and your photography shows that you see the world as a naturalist. Its sharing this extraordinary beauty in the natural world which will ultimately help preserve it.
Comment by: judy squier
Dan, i think I was your first customer at the Christmas Faire yesterday - I am joyful over the framed White Tail Deer with the big red Christmas bow. It's my husband's and my one and only Christmas gift to each other this year since we spent all the other money making the home we purchased in Grants Pass wheelchair accessible. Tom Mangelson, watch out, Dan's the Photo Man with so much talent. God Bless you as you make His creation so accessible to us all. judy from Grants Pass
Comment by: Susan Elster
I AM SO PROUD OF YOU! Thank you for making the world a better place with your photography,your hard work,your vision and your goodness! I love you guys!
Comment by: John Borucki
It's the guy who bought your house. Your web-site is great and your pics are even better. I'm glad we had you sign those greeting cards. Good luck to you.
Comment by: Matt and Christine Krause
The site turned out awesome! You are so talented and will be going far. Oh the animals and habitats you will save. Remember us when you become famous!
Comment by: Jack Hulsey
I was impressed with you work displayed in Ashland in July 2006. Your web site creatively displays your extensive talents. While icons are in vogue, the usability of the site would improve by using "start slideshow" instead of the somewhat cryptic icon.
You work has great clarity and energy. Particularly good is "great blue heron FL#HEC16."
Comment by: Linda Bowman
Your Web site is outstanding. It's the perfect vehicle to showcase your prodigious talent. Your focus is crystal clear and the respect you have for your subject matter shines through each image. Southern Oregon is indeed lucky to count you as one of its finest wildlife photographers. Keep up the good work, Dan!
Comment by: Bob
Dan - it's been a while since I visited your website, nice. I am no expert but I have been a wildlife watcher my whole life and your newer pics are great - nice composition and exposures, glad to see things are going well - hi to Patty. . . Bob - CCU, Backus

Comment by: Tom B.
The photos are great as always. I think I may have spent too much time checking out the site and left Pam to feed, bathe and put three children to sleep. Oh well. Great work on the site, keep up the good work, I always look forward to hearing from you and Patty. Enjoy Oregon.
