FEATURED in Hummingbirds of the World JANUARY 30, 2010

FEATURED in Point and Shooters JANUARY 31,2010

Rufous hummingbirds nests in semiopen habitats where woodlands open onto verdant, flower rich meadows. They defend their territory against other hummingbirds with inexhaustible energy, driving them out in long chase flights.

Females almost identical to Allen’s; safely distinguished by measurements of outer tail feathers (broader in Rufous)

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.
