"Red tailed hawks like to perch on telephone and fence poles and watch for rabbits and mice in the long grasses," Stephen Lyman said of The Raptor's Watch. "I wanted to capture this particular hawk on its vigil because of the textures in the scene -- in the leaves of the blackberry bush, the moss lichen growing on the fence post and the plowed field in the background."

“He paints the wilderness with a knowledge and genuineness that can only be expressed by someone who has ‘been there’.”
Stephen Lyman was an explorer who specialized in painting the most elusive moments in nature. His inspiring work was inspired, in turn, by the writing and teachings of famous naturalist John Muir. "Muir wrote, 'Climb the mountains and get their good tidings,'" Stephen said. "I know exactly what he meant." Stephen's love of the great outdoors stemmed from a childhood spent in the Pacific Northwest, where hiking in Snake River country was a regular family ritual.
