Back to Borneo!

Hello Friends, Greetings from the rain forest of Borneo!  I’m writing this on my iPhone while sitting under a fruiting fig tree where the orangutan mom and juvenile we have been following have been feeding for the past couple hours, unfortunately their position is high and obstructed. Thus I have some down time here to […]

Photographing My Local Nesting Birds

Dear Friends, I hope you have been having a nice spring and relishing the new life all around us here in the Northern Hemisphere.  These past two springs, due to the pandemic, I have been traveling less than usual, and focusing my lenses on more local projects.  One of those has been a filming project […]

Happy New Year 2022!

Dear Friends, For a little inspiration as 2022 begins, I’m sharing an image of a pair of Red-crowned Cranes performing a duet in a snowstorm.  In Japan, where I made this image, cranes are a symbol of happiness, good luck, and long life.  Despite the blizzard, this pair is thinking ahead to the spring nesting […]

Maine’s Fall Splendor

I hope you are all doing well, and if you live in the Northern Hemisphere, have been able to get out and enjoy the fall season.  Since I’m not traveling internationally quite yet, I took the chance to spend time up in Maine earlier this month, where the fall foliage this year was quite extraordinary, […]
