Published DateHOLDERNESS — The Squam Lakes Association (SLA) will present "The Mooseman," Rick Libbey on Thursday, March 14 at 7 p.m. for the Squam Speaker Series.
Since 1981 Rick Libbey has been photographing moose in NH, Maine, and Vermont following his passion to be in the presence of moose; it has become his life's work. When he is not in the field observing and photographing moose, Rick spends his time sharing his stories. "Every photograph has a story to go with it," Libbey says.
Libbey doesn't limit his wildlife photography to moose, he also photographs loons, bears, bald eagles and other critters he encounters in the wild.
The Mooseman's approach to wildlife encounters is one of peace and tranquility. He prefers to work from a kayak, limiting his exposure and disturbance of wildlife. He works to understand the unique habits and tendencies of each moose and loon that he photographs in an effort to minimize any disturbance.
The Squam Speaker Series is a free monthly program open to the public and is offered on the second Thursday of each month. The Speaker Series focuses on environmental and outdoor topics relating to the Squam watershed and surrounding area.
