I as many others have enjoyed the photos that you posted on Trapperman, over the years you became a bonafide photographer. Thanks for all the knowledge that you shared with us.

I never met Jonathan but was acquainted with him through the Trapperman website. His knowledge and pictures of the birds and outdoors he obviously loved touched me deeply and his passing leaves an empty space in my heart. It was clear he was a special kind of person and the world is a darker place with him gone. He will be missed by many people he may not have known he inspired. God bless.

I am saddened to hear that Jonathan has passed away. Although he and I never met in person, he touched my and many other's lives on a regular basis through the internet forums. He posted hundreds of fantastic nature photos over the years we were "friends". He was our Cyber-Pal and will be missed greatly.

I'll miss chatting with him about wildlife and his photography. He was always excited about the latest creature he saw. He had so many great stories about his experiences. So sorry for your loss. He will be missed.
