A brief description of a trip to California in 2010 to photograph wildflowers. A number of stops were made to check out birding hotspots that I had not visited previously. Photos of the rare (in the U.S.) and beautiful Elegant Trogon were obtained in the Patagonia Lake State Park in Arizona.
Eleven images acquired during an early morning thunderstorm in June of 2010. They illustrate Least Terns coping with the wind and rain during a thunderstorm. Thunderstorms are common occurrences during the three week incubation period.
I am an amateur photographer with a specific interest in nature photography, especially bird photography. I live in Pensacola FL and specialize in photos taken in Central Florida, the panhandle of Florida, the Gulf Coast of Louisiana and Texas.
