On May the 5th 2011 Ronnie Gaubert, one of the best nature photographers in the world lost his battle with ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease and passed away. He was a great photographer and his photographs have always been an inspiration to me and many other nature photographers around the world. His work with Nikon D100, D200 and D300 cameras along with Nikon 300 F4, 400 F2.8, 500VR and macro lenses are world class. His recent work with Nikon’s New 2X Mk3 teleconverter on the telephoto lenses are some of the best examples ive ever seen.
