Pure joy is being in the quiet of nature and connecting with it. I love nature. Photographing nature, especially animals in the wild, is my way of protecting our planet and sharing its beauty. My passion is photographing birds – especially birds in flight. The process is exhilarating!

Some of my preferences: I follow folks who do not bash politicians on Flickr. I also post to groups where the group's award is small and the group requires only one or two awards.

I'm not even typically a bird photo kinda guy, but I always look look forward to seeing her next post, and she never disappoints! Her photographs contain the important elements that transcend a good photo into a tremendous photo. She always finds the perfect light that emphasizes the key part of the action, against the most interesting support context, and at the perfect moment. Her attention to detail is obvious to anyone who peruses her stream. I'm honored to be her Flickr friend!

I don't use that word lightly. She tells me that she may retire from teaching some day soon. It'll be interesting to see her results when she has more time, but I suspect that she'll soon start seeing some income from her efforts.
