2012-02-13: Not a whole lot of time to go out shooting today, and not a whole lot of battery life in the cold. I did manage to snap this nice bark texture.

From yesterday:
2016-02-11: I don't often see cardinals at my apartment, but Thursday I had a pair that stayed around for a while and didn't scare when I moved around right by the window. The male, pictured here, did keep one eye on me the whole time he was feeding though.

2016-02-10: The feeders got a lot of bird activity this snowy day. This bluejay is just one of the many visitors to the peanut ring, oilseed feeder, and ground feeder.

2016-02-07:  Another quick stop at Van Natta's falls and Dam. The frozen spray has mostly melted, but the amount of water has increased.

2016-02-12: The thick edge of the thin ice. I watched the water freeze yesterday when I had uncharacteristic (for me) time to walk about downtown.

Tossing in a card  for #birdpoker   Warblers curated by  +Phil Armishaw 

This past May, I was introduced to a new to me birding locale perfect for seeing and photographing migratory warblers. The best part is that it is an easy 5 mile bike ride from my apartment.

I got excellent views of many warblers I had not seen before and got some fun images as well, including this one of a Bay Breasted Warbler.

I see +Ray Pompilio's female downy and throw in a male downy to keep her company for #birdpoker  "woodpeckers".

Male downy on the peanut ring earlier this year. The woodpeckers don't hang out on the peanut ring often, but every few weeks I see one check it out.

2016-02-09: I took several photos this evening when the class I teach on Tuesday evenings got out. Some fresh snow on the trees and ground, snow falling, and several street lights that helped light the scene for hand held night time shooting with a wee point and shoot camera.

I am having trouble deciding which of two "finalists" I should use as my photo of the day. I flipped a coin... and it rolled under the couch... so I dropped a piece of buttered bread and decided picture 1 if it landed butter side up and picture 2 if it landed butter side down.

I now have a photo of the day and a floor in need of cleaning.

This is the "losing" photo.

2016-02-08: I keep noticing, but riding by this barn in Freeville. I like the slightly open door and the old roof peaking out from under the newer metal roof.

Story
Tagline
scientist (ecologist), cyclist (commuter, racer), wannabe photographer (landscape, wildlife).
Introduction
I am an ecologist by trade, an avid cyclist, and a photographer in my spare time. My work and my cycling take  me outdoors on a daily basis, and I never leave the house without a camera in my pocket. My photography addiction started in 2006 when I got my digital SLR. Now 6 years later, I have taken over 80,000 photos, thrown most of them away, and used the remaining ones to make blank note-cards for personal use, to give as gifts, and sell to the public.

My photography tends to the wildlife and nature side of the spectrum, but I have been known to try my lens on landscapes, cityscapes, macros, and buildings.  The only subjects I tend to steer clear of when taking photos, are people.

My cycling has taken many forms from utility riding to run errands such as getting the weekly groceries, to year round commuting, to racing as a USAC category 2 rider on the road. The bike as a mode of transportation puts me closer to the world around me. That closer contact has, in turn, allowed me to capture scenes with the camera that I otherwise might not have noticed.

My work as an ecologist has involved the study of plant insect interactions and invasive species ecology in wetlands, rangelands, and now two deserts in the south western US.  The camera gear is the first piece of equipment packed when I prepare to head into the field for work.  Happily my supervisors have tolerated my photography habit - even when I've needed to get my fix in the middle of the work day.
