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.

    Nice find and shot Bill: he sure looks well fed; love the feathers draping over the talons

  • Thanks, Dan. There are several of them and all appear to be doing very well.

    Great photo, Bill! Is he trying to shake hands with you, or warning you to be careful? Cool action shot!

  • Thanks, Mary. He/She was very occupied preening for a night out ;)
