Chester is not content to make dazzling pictures of these majestic birds, however- he is concerned with their behavior, their relationship with humans and clearly, their survival. Hunted for their meat and boiled for their oil in less enlightened times, Chesters fine feathered friends are still threatened by changes in climate, shifts in availability of food species and tourism. His concern for these delicate creatures is mirrored in his sensitive images of their mating, congregating, diving, swimming and waddling through blizzards.
