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.

    lovely capture

  • I was very shocked that he came so close! I sat on my new stool and just waited and then he just popped right out of his hidey hole and started to feed. It was neat to watch him do his thing from the distance I was from him~ Thank you Robert!
