American Pipit

San Pedro River, December 2012~ Canon Powershot SX40HS

The American Pipit breeds in barren mountaintops and tundra. The males perform ebullient flight displays, singing while gliding down high in the air. After nesting season, pipits form flocks in farm fields and short grass prairies and shorelines.

VOICE Song is a series of sweet, clear, ringing or tinkling phrases. Repeated continuously for up to 20 seconds. CALL note is a sibilant and rapid sipip or sipipi

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.
