This beautiful collie is my “granddog”, Shelby.
Note: Sadly, Shelby passed away June 20, 2013 one day after leg amputation surgery, a last attempt to save her from multiple tumors that were growing rapidly. Rest in peace, beautiful Shelby. She was my daughter’s sweet loving pet for ten years.

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.
