Willis' special thanks to long-time friend, fellow river runner and nature enthusiast Sue Bellagamba of The Nature Conservancy, Moab, Utah for this profound quote now found on the African Pages:
“Africa gets under your skin and into your soul.” -- Sue Bellagamba
No doubt! What a powerful and recondite, yet almost obvious statement.
Yellowstone National Park's wildlife is observed through the lens and pen of Willis Greiner in the new Yellowstone gallery and narrative "Wolf Watching in Yellowstone's Off Seasons." These features are also accessed through the wildlife section of this website.

Of special interest might also be the arctic galleries, which exhibit several stunning images of polar bears and arctic fox presented against the stark monochromatic backdrop of the Canadian sub arctic region near Churchill, Manitoba.
In the spring of 2016 Willis and Cheryl returned to Africa and toured Botswana, including the Central Kalahari, Okavango Delta, Moremi Game Reserve and Chobe National Park. Willis has written a book Desert to Delta -- the Essential Botswana and created a new website (still under construction) dedicated entirely to this extensive expedition; click on this link to browse, review and download the e-book or PDF version; perhaps consider buying the hard copy edition (all from the Blurb website) detailing this adventure!

In early 2019, Willis completed his second book, chronicling more than three decades of curiosity, adventure, discovery and celebration -- archived through the family's annual Christmas card. The resultant book Ghosts of Christmas Past is a compilation of the cards, and includes many additional photographs, essays and personal observations.

In 2021, Willis completed his fourth book, a collection of stories and photographs chronicling -- as the back cover states -- a life of "navigating" towering rapids to surviving a harrowing high mountain plummet, from experiencing white-knuckle Alaskan bush flights to "An Open Window in the Arctic" -- admiring the oldest cave art on the planet and stumbling into a haphazard, yet serendipitous visit to the world's preeminent UFO researcher and his treasure trove of files -- these are the author's mostly true, often absurd tales -- the result of persevering -- and culminating in a lifetime of blindly fortunate personal escapades.

www.willisgreinerphoto.com wins the prestigious "Literary Appeal Award!" Below are the details from beloved author Wendell Mayo:
"It's great to hear from you and to
consider your new site for the award! I personally loved the narrative
concerning the migratory habits of elephants over a flooded area, so
I feature links to my books here because, frankly, I was honored some years back by the "Literary Appeal Award" as noted above. Not only was the award of some consequence, but I especially appreciated his comments concerning my essay about the elephants. I have rewritten it several times since, and it appears in edited form in the Ghosts book, linked here, appearing on page 74 of that tome.
As I have grown older and perhaps a bit wiser, I have realized that, along with photography, storytelling is my "stock-in-trade." Sometimes red wine from the south of France is involved.
Thanks for visiting!
