Thanks for visiting my galleries. I have been an avid "birder" and nature photographer for many years. I taught high school for 36 years and at the same time owned and operated a successful wedding photography studio. Now that I'm retired, my wife and I can usually be found outside observing and photographing the natural world. Although the "focus" of my attention is usually avian, I enjoy photographing mammals, and scenics as well. My galleries are broken down into the 12 months of the year-I post what I have photographed during that particular month. I lead bird walks for several local nature centers as well as teach nature photography. My work has been published in several national and local magazines. Comments are always welcome.
