Your Bio

I lived in Florida for 34 years, but recently I moved to Nashville, Indiana For many years I shot bird pictures with a Nikon F and a Vivitar Series 1, 70-210 mm. I bought the Nikon in 1967, just before I went over seas in the military. Currently I Use a Nikon D2h with a 600mm f4. Most of my bird photography has been in SW Florida. I hope you enjoy viewing the bird pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them. I welcome your comments. Much thanks to Mike Moya, a well known professional portrait photographer from West Palm Beach, that took this picture of me on Fort Myers Beach.
