In Deep thought — While in Florida I photographed this cormorant perched on a rope fence as he peered into the sky as if he were pondering the meaning of life.

The Maestro — This Northern Shoveler was wading in the water then suddenly he decided that he had to stretch so he rose up out of the water, flapped his wings and settled back down. Whenever I see this action taken I always think "Maestro" as though an orchestra will began to play.

Look Into My Eyes — Found this cheetah relaxing under the shade of a big on a hot afternoon. As I held the camera up to take the shot she looked back as if she could feel someone or something staring.

I'll Fly Away — I decided visit the Bolsa Chica Wetlands in Huntington Beach, California as I hadn't been there in a couple years. Upon my arrival I saw the the Terns were full form performing their usual aerial ballet as they dive for fish in the shallow waters returning to the sky as they dance in mid the air.

Little Egret Takes Flight — On my last visit to the San Diego Wild Animal Park I headed over to the Cheetah enclosure right away as it was early in the day and like most if not all wild animals this is when they're most active. While en-route to the Cheetahs I saw for the first time large number egrets and ibis, there had to be at least a 50 or more gathered at this tree lined man made pond. I was so taken that I stopped, attached my 70 -200 f2.8 lens with a 1.4 TC to my Canon 7D MKII and, began to click away. It wasn't until I noticed 2 eggs in a nest that I realized that it was breeding season (DAH!!!). This is a image of a Little Egret taking flight as he/she flew from one tree to another.

Could it be Breakfast? — This one of 3 jaguars at the Living Desert in Palm Desert, CA. I happened capture this image as this female slowly walked through the thicket and peered through bushes in my direction. I can only imagine what the feeling would be like if this were in the wild.

Your images are like your resume', they should be a reflection of you.
Introduction
Photography has become my passion of which I feel extremely blessed to be able to do. While shooting wildlife and scenery are what I enjoy most I'm open to photographing just about anything as long is the images that I create touches the inner being of the viewer. As a photographer my goal is to touch the viewer emotionally sparking feelings of happiness, sadness, joy, pain, peace or, love much in the same way as music.


I hope that the passion that I have for photography translates to the images that I create as it is my desire that the viewer feels this passion as well.
