Old Galleries

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 clutter, I am in the process of migrating my old photo galleries because the program I was using is no longer working well.

For the new galleries look on the sidebar and for the old galleries click the button. There are images in these galleries that do not appear on the old galleries; for instance my old galleries do not have the most recent images or they might not have bird species I had not included there.

I am currently working on moving my bird images to the new galleries.

I know this isn't a complete Franklin's Gull and Laughing Gull comparison but I'm not a scientist, just a bird photographer and bird lover.

Red-tailed Hawk Lift Off with Nesting Material in Northern Utah

By | May 1st, 2016|10 Comments

I am not sure why the Red-tailed Hawk lifted off with nesting material in its bill from the nest, maybe the hawk felt that piece of nesting material wasn't suitable.

Trio of Greater Yellowlegs

When I photographed this trio of Great Yellowlegs in Florida I didn't have to worry about how far away they were, in fact at times they moved too close to me

Black Skimmer Skimming the Gulf

My own technique for photographing this Black Skimmer skimming the Gulf and other skimmers that day was to sit down in the water right where the waves crested and moved on shore.

A Camouflaged Wilson’s Plover Chick

By | April 28th, 2016|8 Comments

I knew where this camouflaged Wilson's Plover chick was when I photographed it from a distance but realized that if I didn't point out that there was a chick in the image that other people might not even know it was there.
