Below are the front and back covers of Witness, Susan Middleton’s and David Liittschwager’s celebrated book. As Susan explained, the striking images of the Florida Panther and the Presidio Manzanita shown together carries a message: “We need to be attentive to the charismatic megafauna, AND the less-conspicuous and celebrated species that are just as important to how life works.”
