In a New Light Pioneers: Michael, 17 - "Loving Parents"
"When I first saw this scene, I only saw one bird. I went to grab my camera, and when I came back there were two. The mother had come in to give some insects to the father to feed their babies in a nest close by. They just sat there for a while and let me get pictures. For me, this picture makes me think that I just want to be a good father some day, and change my life so I can take good care of my kids."
About Michael: "My name is Michael. I am 17 years old, and I'm from Centuria, WI. When I get older my dream job is to be an electrical lineman and to build a farm and have a ranch. This photography unit has taught me that I have great talents. It also means I can do more with my life then just sit around. When I leave this photography unit I will wish I could keep taking photos with one-of-a-kind teachers like Benjamin Thwaits."
