Any photographer will be able to explain why it’s so challenging to capture the perfect shot, particularly when it comes to nature. A perfect photograph is the result of a number of different elements, including talent, intuition, timing, tools, and originality. When they are all combined, they form what are known as “masterpieces,” which only occasionally occur, much as the images shot by Mike Mayou.

Mike, a Duluth native and photographer, has been snapping pictures since he was a small child. He has a lifelong love for taking pictures and making videos of adventure, landscapes, concerts, portraits, and engagements. He was able to get once-in-a-lifetime pictures of three bobcats in the wild while on a work trip along the St. Louis River.

After finishing the shots, Mayou exited the river to prevent disturbing the wildlife. He refused to tell the exact location of the lynxes because photographers might come and swarm the animals.

The photographer claims that “as we all know, drones can potentially frighten animals, especially if the drones are larger in size and go close to the critters.” “After researching the morality of using a drone to shoot wildlife, I came to the conclusion that I may have gotten too close to the bobcats for comfort. Had I known this beforehand, I probably would not have gotten as close as I did. The drone is too close if the animal’s behavior changes.
