FINDING INSPIRATION IN NATUREBob Libby was born and raised in Maine. Moved to Australia and after a 22 year career in teaching and a 17 year career in Australian Real Estate, his love for children and wildlife led to the creation of a book called “Australian Animals and Their Animal Friends”. Bob then started photography as a hobby. He always had a passion for photographing animals and to the dedication of the preservation and protection of the natural world. His Native American Maliseet heritage has given him a strong spiritual connection with wildlife and nature.

Maine WildlifeA Maine moose can be sighted anytime and anywhere when driving in Vacationland. This cow moose was photographed on the outskirts of Millinocket Maine.
Big Wilson Stream Falls, MaineWhen in Maine, I enjoy visiting this riverine area as the atmosphere around the stream radiates an environment of relaxation. The stream falls over a series of ledges, with a main drop of approximately ten feet. The total drop is about 20 feet. There is a good water volume year round. A large, deep pool located below the main drop, on the west side of the falls, is suitable for swimming, including older children. The adjacent mixed hardwoods make this a scenic location, especially during the Fall colour season.
