Bill Silliker, nationally known wildlife photographer ("The Moose Man",, died yesterday while conducting a photography workshop in Maine's Baxter State Park. He suffered a massive heart attack and all attempts to revive him were unsuccessful.

Exactly one year ago, I had the good fortune to spend three hours with Bill in Baxter while we patiently waited for a bull moose to turn into a position where we could photograph him. That was the only occasion on which I'd spent time with Bill, but in three hours together on a pond edge people can get to know each other.

Bill was a a gentleman and a fine man in all respects, totally dedicated to nature and conservation. He'll be missed by many who knew him and his work. RIP
thats really sad. he was my favorite photographer.
