Welcome to my bird and nature photography web site!

This site contains blog posts with my photos and the stories behind the images and my extensive photo galleries which include birds, wildlife, flowers and trees along with images of the landscapes I visit. I feel that it is important to tell the stories behind my images.

Please excuse the fact that not all of my portfolios are complete, I was am in the process of migrating my old photo galleries because the program I was using is no longer working well quit functioning.

I am currently working on moving these remaining galleries:

  • Wading Birds (Reddish Egrets, Roseate Spoonbills and Tricolored Herons)
  • Some Landscape and Travel Images
