Another fun shoot for the WSJ, this time at the reopening of the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial and Hall of North American Mammals at the Museum of Natural History here in NYC.
After treating them in the lab Museum conservator Julia Sybalsky expertly places the real pronghorn droppings (from Wyoming) in the Elkhorn Ranch diorama.

Thanks to my friends at WSJ for sending me out to shoot the great Richard Meier at his home in East Hampton (and thanks to Mr Meier himself for making us feel so welcome and for the as promised super hot Scotch Bonnets)!
