Here's a big surprise - I'm really into birds, especially raptors. My interest in birds led to my interest in photography. I got my first real camera (Canon 20d with 100-400 IS Zoom lens) in late 2005 and have done all I can to wear it out. I recently purchased a 300mm f/2.8 lens.

I am an avid bird watcher and nature lover. I have been interested in wild things all of my life. I have recently gotten involved in photography and tend to focus on the things I love. I am actively involved in monitoring hawks in migration and volunteer in the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge. Most of my better photos are of raptors and hummingbirds, but I'm always on the lookout for other wild animals.

I spent a couple of years working for the Hawk Migration Association of North America and spend every spare moment in the fall on the side of a mountain counting migrating hawks (and taking a few pictures).
