Welcome to nature has no boss the photography and thought blog of Michael Bizeau and Christine Schultheis.

We are inspired by nature and that which happens of its own accord and view “nature” not as a thing or a place but as a process we are all a part of. We hope you enjoy the images we present here and you can take some time to look around and become inspired by the wonderful planet we live on.

  1. Hi Mike, thanks for liking ‘Missing’ and certainly glad to know of your site! Lovely photography! Do you know of the Int’l League of Conservation Photographers (I’m a fellow of the related ILCWriters, but many friends are in the ILCP…)? Seems much of your work might also be of good ‘use’ there as well! So glad you connected! Stay in touch!

    1. Hi Elizabeth, thank for the feedback it is always appreciated. I have heard of the ILCP and assumed that membership there was for more professional photographers however I could be wrong. Does the ILCwriters have a website? Thanks again for returning the favor to check out my photos and have a great day.

    1. Thanks for returning the favor. I like you articles on the Maldives and your recent turtle post. We recently saw a hawksbill turtle while snorkeling in Belize and it was a magnificent sight. I am not accomplished in underwater photography so I loved your photos.

  2. Hi Michael, this is a great blog with so many beautiful photos, I don’t know were to begin liking them, so consider this like here as applying to all of them. I don’t know were exactly you live, but from the photos it looks like you are lucky to have plenty of beautiful countryside near you. So keep them photos coming!

  3. Hello,

    I hope this message finds you well.

    I’ve just had the fortune of being awarded the Very Inspiring Blogger award and as part of the protocol I’ve awarded 15 other blogs as well, yours being one of them.

    Obviously I don’t know what your stance on blog awards is, but it’s your choice as to whether you’d like to accept it or not and I only mean to say thank you for putting together such a great blog that interests. inspires, and entertains.

    Full details can be found in my post here: http://polaris975.wordpress.com/2014/02/17/very-inspiring-blogger-award-thank-you/

  4. Thanks for checking out my blog Mike, even in its infantile state 😛 Love your work with the camera and the blog has a really good layout. Will be hecking back from time to time to see what your doing 😀

    1. Thanks for the feedback, I look forward to see your images and hearing the stories behind them. The white-tailed sea eagle is a majestic bird and in the landscaped around Loften must have been quite a sight. I would sure like spend some time there in the future kayaking in the islands.

    1. Thanks, for all the great comments. They are appreciated and sometime make my day. I enjoy posting what I capture so I hope you continue to stop by and check things out when yo have the time.

  5. You travel all over the place . . . and take very interesting photos.

    . . . and a fellow Coloradonianite to boot.

    Question about Yellowstone . . . do you hike in during the winter, or take tours?

    1. Thanks for the feedback it is appreciated. We usually stay in the snow lodge when visiting the old faithful area in the winter arriving by snow coach but spend the days cross country skiing on our own. We also go out on our won from the car on day trip on skis from other areas of the park. I would love to visit the canyon area in the winter but have yet to do so. Hope you are enjoying the wonderful weather we are having in CO this weekend.

      1. I’ll have to look into that. My wife is not too keen on heading out in adverse weather.

        No cross-country for us, but we might snowshoe – although that probably limits the range.

        The weather is not bad where we are; some snow on the ground, but sunny and relatively warm.

        1. Do look into it as the peace and quiet in the winter is not to be missed. Snowshoeing works great and there are tours daily both guided and ones in which you can ride in the coach one-way and return on the trails back to the lodge. Anyway thanks for checking out the blog and best wishes.

    1. Thanks, your drawings and illustrations are inspiring for any student of natural history and tell a great story. thanks for checking out my blog and I do hope you can find your way back sometime.

    Thanks so much for your like on my site today, Tide Line Still Life. Your work is stunning, and so very impressive in its breadth! So nice to meet you!

    1. Thanks Ian, The pinhole does create a special atmosphere and marry that with film and it is very special. I also love the digital camera and could not shoot wildlife without it. You visited the best, well my favorite places on your trips to the USA, the west coast as well as yellowstone. Thanks for following along and I look forward to your comments along the way.

  7. I love the name – nature has no boss – sure is true. And that’s a gorgeous photo of nature doing its thing, un-bossed by anyone. Thanks so much for the follow I appreciate it!

    1. Thanks for the feedback as it is appreciated. Looking forward to seeing what you post in the future on your blog as your view is interesting and I like the film photography.

  8. Thank you for discovering my photography blog http://www.throughharoldslens.com.

    You gave me the opportunity to discover, explore and follow your blog. I hope we both enjoy our journeys.

    To help launch you on your journey, I thought you might enjoy a couple of “Quick Links” to a few of my favorites, from over 200 posts, on Through Harold’s Lens:

    “Five Senses”

    “Maiden Mild”

    “Shaken, Not Stirred”

    On behalf of the Through Harold’s Lens Creative Team, my trusty sidekick Mr. SLR Nikon, his brother Mr. Pen Pal and myself, we wish you the best.


    1. Harold, thanks for stopping by here as well. You have an interesting way of combining your photos with words and experiences and I look forward to taking some time to further explore your blog as well.



    1. Thanks for the wonderful feedback. After reading a few of your post I see a philosophical similarity between out tow blogs. Always fun to find like minded folks out there. Hope your day is going great and I am looking forward to reading more of your words.

    1. Thanks Debi, glad to have you following along and your comment are appreciated. We are having fun with the blog and I hope you enjoy looking through the older posts when you get a minute. Have a great weekend.

  9. Your photos show me how fantastically beautiful this world is- when things go right. Here in Australia there are too many droughts and floods and fires just at the moment. Then we will wait and see that nature might not have a boss but she sure gets stuck into hard work when its time. Love your stuff.

    1. Thanks for taking the time to check out the photos and commenting. We really appreciate it. I hope the draughts subside as you enter your winter season and the predicted el nino for this year does not materialize. Take care and have a great week ahead.

    1. James, thanks for the kind feedback we are purely amateurs so you comment mean quite a bit to us. Thanks for tweeting out a link as well. WIshing you a great week ahead and all the best.

  10. Mike and Christine, thanks for taking a look at the Hammer Home Street Photography Project.

    Nice work here. Are you familiar with the wildlife paintings of Robert Bateman? Some of your wildlife and landscape photography reminds me of his concept sktches.

    1. Thanks we are indeed familiar with Bateman’s paintings and enjoy them very much and comparing our photographs to his sketches is quite a compliment. Street photography is something I enjoy looking at but have yet to accomplish, although I give it a try every know and then but being a tall guy with a camera I tend to stand out and just feel funny. Thanks for the thoughtful feedback as it is much appreciated.

    1. Thanks, Christy and I have fun getting out and your comment is quite a compliment as capturing the essence is what it’s all about. Wishing you all the best and thanks for checking out the blog. Hope to see you around often.

      1. Probably won’t see me often, Michael; time is in short supply these days. Though I wish you both great success. With the talent you both display, you have every opportunity to do so.

    1. Pierre, thanks for the very kind words and for visiting the blog. We have fun with it and I am glad you liked what you saw. Best wishes and have a great week ahead.

  11. Hey, Mike, great blog. I wanted to leave a comment on the Spring post, but tried three times, and it would not accept it. I think, maybe, it is my computer. So, I’ll try to leave it here (my comment about “Spring”). Oh-Man. This your image on this post? Incredible. I really like it when we get a little snow / a dusting right there in that transition from winter into spring. I like your blog. I’ve been convinced by my heart and soul to follow “Nature Has No Boss”. Thank you, by the way for stopping by to visit my blog Wilder Man On Rolling Creek. Peace, T

    1. Thanks for the thoughtful feedback and indeed nature has no boss is more than a slogan for a blog. I hope you enjoyed what was here and I will be checking on your blog regularly as well. Wishing you all the best. Mike and Christy

    1. THanks Martha, I am glad you find the photos inspiring as we are truly inspired by nature and what it represents. We enjoy the blog and are glad you liked what you saw. All the best.

feedback welcome
