BAR HARBOR — Award-winning nature photographer George Sanker will share photographs and his tales from the field at the Jesup Memorial Library on Friday, March 25, at 7 p.m.

Sanker’s photograph of three grizzly bears formed the back cover of the 1985 Sierra Club Wildlife Calendar, his photograph of a bull moose in a Baxter State Park pond was featured in the Audubon Engagement Calendar of 2004, and his photograph of African lions was published in the Audubon Engagement Calendar of 2005.

“There are few things in life I love more than waiting in the shadows of the day’s first light at the edge of a mountain stream or pond, a clearing in an ancient forest, a pristine ocean cove or a secluded black water swamp for a spectacular wild animal to emerge from the early morning mist,” said Sanker.

Many of his images have appeared in World Wildlife Fund Calendars from 2007-2012, including two cover shots. His photography also has won awards from the National Wildlife Federation and “Outdoor Photography.” Sanker owns Acadia Frame Shop on Main Street in Bar Harbor. Visit www.georgesanker.com.

This talk is part of the Jesup’s Cadillac Mountain Sports speaker series. Contact the Jesup at 288-4245 or kchagnon@jesuplibrary.org.
