Spending time in the outdoors has always been a passion of mine. Most of my subject matter is avian but I will readily spend hours photographing almost anything else in the natural world. Currently I live near a small town, Rockland, just east of Ottawa. I work in Ottawa and so most of my photography is done in eastern Ontario. Thank you for dropping by and enjoy.

    What “won’t” these guys do ? Nice focus; with some wing blur..
    Quite the spectacular BG…

  • Thanks, Ted. That background is now bare :( It didn’t take long for the leaves to fall.

    Good Lord, here’s my mate back again. A beautiful shot Bill and a fav for me.

  • Thanks, Al. There are at least half a dozen of them that get very excited when I’m out as they are now expecting peanuts ;)
