Through May: Animal Health Library Features Wildlife Photos by Vet Student
Posted: February 11, 2016 -- letizia
Not much is different about the two side-by-side photographs of fourth-year WSU veterinary student Seth Bynum. He’s seated in the back of the same Chevy Tahoe, wearing a short-sleeved shirt, shorts, sandals and long hair, holding up a hand-lettered sign with the words “Montana or Bust.”
But 14 years and 200,000 odometer miles separate the images, the first taken in 2001 in North Carolina and the second in 2015 in Washington. Bynum spent most of that time and distance exploring the outdoors and photographing wildlife at each stop.
