Hi and welcome to my site. I’m a retired stationary engineer who lives on British Columbia’s scenic Sunshine Coast, which although on the mainland, can only be accessed by water or air – just the way we Coasters like it! Photography emphasizing wildlife and nature is my hobby and passion. These photographs are taken with either a Nikon D-90 using a Nikkor AFS 70-300mm VR or Sigma APO 150-500mm lens, or a Canon EOS Rebel T3i with a Canon EF 100-400mm lens. I appreciate and try to answer all comments.

All animals (including birds) in this collection are wild.
