My Portfolio
I find that besides a keen eye, patience is the best way to attain photographs of nature's flying population.  I often sit for hours in a single location waiting for the right moment and subject to appear.  I also find not being able to control the subject the greatest challenge in acquiring that once in a lifetime photo worth being treasured and displayed.

Please browse and enjoy, if questions, please ask!
