Is it summer yet?

We were out visiting my wife’s family in Illinois over the holidays and it was blisteringly cold.  This photo just says cold to me.  It was a little darker out and I had a 300m zoom (* 1.5 = 450mm) on so you can see the snow trails as this poor Cardinal just looks cold.

May have to post a beach photo next just to warm us all up.  Enjoy.

London Birds

I took this photo several years ago…before I started getting into photography.  Therefore, I think this shot is more luck than skill.  We just loved all of the birds in the foreground and the church (I think…don’t remember what this building is) in the background with the beautiful sky.

Let me know what you think.

Surprised Duck

Wat r u looking at?

I was walking through Lincoln Park just north of Fullerton in Chicago when I started a duck in the tall grass.  He popped up and I spun and took a photo. His lady friend was still hiding when I took this one.  She popped her head up soon after.

It was a wonderful spring day…not like the cold windy day we have in NY today. Enjoy.


Yellow Bird on a Yellow Flower

While visiting my in-laws in the Western side of Illinois, the birds couldn’t stay away from the yellow flowers.  This one was kind enough to hold still long enough for a nice portrait.

Hope you like it.

Red Tailed Hawk in Flight

Was on a walk with TeeWayne Photography (aka Dad) in North Carolina and saw this beautiful red tailed hawk up in a tree.  Of course, Dad was kind enough to wait until I was ready before he kindly walked over to the tree and scared the poor bird.  Had to edit out a branch or two, but loved the shot.

Let me know what you think…
