Illuminated by a flashlight, frightened deer bound into the woods near Lake Superior. Published National Geographic August 1921 page 142.

Geographic nature photography took off in 1906, when Editor Gilbert H. Grosvenor published 32 flashlit wildlife images by George Shiras in a single issue. Two Society board members resigned, protesting that "wandering off into nature is not geography." Undaunted, Grosvenor printed another Shiras portfolio in 1921.
