Welcome to my world of birds!
I am a retired wedding and portrait photographer, teaching photography to adults and youth, as well as teaching basic birding to children. I enjoy spending the majority of my free time photographing birds. The daily hunt for something new, or a better shot of something familiar, keeps me always looking up, in awe of the vibrant yet sometimes invisible world around us.
Because the presence of birds is so easily overlooked in our daily lives, I enjoy the opportunity to share with others the intricate detail and design that can be captured through my lens. Raising awareness in others of the beauty in flight that surrounds us is very rewarding.
It is my goal that through my images of these beautiful creatures I will continue to inspire others to see and to hear these magnificent works of art that grace the heartland with their presence as either permanent or seasonal residents or migrating visitors. Keeping in mind, as well, that there is much to be learned from these winged creatures, in their varying habits, behavior and activity, mysterious and yet predictable!
