For years, I’ve been an amateur photographer. I have traveled widely & my camera has been a constant companion. To me, the most intriguing aspects of photography are composition & color.
As a retired nursing professor, I now have time to hone my photographic skills. Special areas of interest include animal, bird, butterfly & flower macros as well as photos of people and places. However, I am an eclectic photographer, drawn to a wide variety of subjects.

    This one looks like a fox with his colours :)

  • Hi Dutch, I agree that he has foxlike colors and even looks like a fox. I photographed him from a distance at this conservation area so I am not sure of his actual size. Take care, Laurel
