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.

Adult Snowy Egret Hunting for Prey

I liked the crouched position of this Snowy Egret as it was about to strike the prey it was hunting and when it struck it did capture and eat the small fish.
