I was sitting under my friend tree and I happen to look at a tree near by. This is a Gold Finch. It was taken with my nikon D90 camera and my focal lens was shooting at 200mm and f/8.0,1/350s. I soften the picture around the edges and made the blur.

This is a Black capped chickadee. came and then went thats on fast her/she was. A little blury. This was taken with my d90 camera and was photograph with my 200mm lens with a f/2.8.

In New York this Bird is call a Rose Breasted Gross beak. Love the red on her chest, my friends was telling me that shes been coming around, so tonight I decided to go over to her feeders to see if she would come and she did. Not to sure what the other bird is that showed up with her.

Lilacs on the north end of the Canandaigua Lake.

In Flight!

I know I have shared other Geeses before, but I love when I get them in flight.

Little Ducklings!

There was one little duckling and then there was more. I decided to go to the lake to night for my daily walk. So I headed down to the north end of the lake. I found theses little ones on the other side of the lake in a stream between buildings.

The Wild!

In 2001 I went on a trip with my college Photography class. We went to Canada to a wildlife refuge. We were on a three thousand acres of land. It was a beautiful places. Mountains all around us, four feet of snow that had fallen that week before we got there. We got to see some great Animal and here a few that we got to see. Theses picture are scan in to my computer so they do look different.ENJOY! 

She was about twenty feet from us, she's a beauty. We were just staying there and we got to take some great photo's of her. If I could do it again I would. This was taken with my very first camera, it was a Nikon  D65 film camera. All of the pictures were taken with slide film.


This was taken at Mendon Ponds with my Nikon D90 camera.

I was taking a walk yesterday and of course I didn't have my camera with me. I decided to go back today to take this picture of the Magnolia flower. It was so beautiful  in the rain and the water dripping off it. I wished I took it yesterday. I was hoping that the sun was out, but it would of been great to see the sun shinning on theses flowers.

Magnolia Flowers!
