Mammal Photographs Needed from Southern California or nearby

Brad Blood is preparing a book on the terrestrial mammals of southern California and the eastern & southern Sierra Nevada. He is looking for photographs he can use of these species, preferably from California, or somewhere close by (though this is not a hard and fast requirement).

He is not taking a profit off the book, but instead is donating my share of the profits to the American Society of Mammalogists. So if you have commercial terms, please let him know at
