From the Archives

Now that I've posted all my bird photographs on my in-progress photo gallery site, I'm now scrolling through every digital photograph I've taken, sorting them into collections in Lightroom.  I came across this ultra-closeup of one of the spreadwing damselflies I came across in Maine.  What amazing creatures!

Birding at the Racetrack

Megan and I use an incentive system for the boys. When they do chores, behave well, etc., they get a marble placed in a mason jar.  When the jar is full, they get a reward. Weston has been wanting to go try the go-karts for a long time, and finally we had a perfect day for it.  He had a blast.

The track is situated right next to the I-71 corridor, a habitat that is often frequented by red-tailed hawks.  What luck that a beautiful bird soared right above our heads while waiting in line.  I just happened to have my telephoto lens and camera all set up for action shots.  The red-tailed hawk had eluded me for quite some time.  I just didn't have any great photos of this common bird taken in Ohio. Not anymore!

Favorite Photos from Spring Break in Southwest Florida

Two weeks ago, we were wrapping up our spring break trip to Bonita Springs.  With trips to Corkscrew Swamp and Barefoot Beach, usually followed by afternoon trips to the pool, the boys were exhausted.  Here are a few of my favorite photographs from the trip.

Florida.  I can only imagine how awesome it used to be!
