Meet 6E4 a Piping Plover

Meet 6E4 a Piping Plover that I discovered while laying on the wet sand of the Bolivar Peninsula last week. Whenever I’m observing and photographing a flock of shorebirds, I’m also on the search for those that are wearing jewelry. As those that are wearing jewelry tell a […]

Before it Begins

And there I was. Standing in the middle of the meadow before the sun was to rise. The sky was covered in clouds, with just a little bit of clearing where perhaps the sun would reflect its warming rays upon. The birds were chirping and singing in the […]

On the Road Again

This week I was kindly invited to return again by the Monticello Bird Club for their third annual Bird photography contest. I’m honored that they consider my insight as Judge for the contest worthy for the event. I am thankful for the opportunity to be with them and […]
