Have been into photography for about 8 years now. Hooked on nature photography, favor both macro shots of insects and bird shots. Have a Canon 30D, 40D 7D and a 5D. I primarily use the 7D these days. Primary lens for the more recent birds is the Canon 400/4 DO IS, earlier shots were with the Canon 100-400mm with IS . Macro is their 60mm lens.

I've not been as active lately on Flickr, my horses have been keeping me very busy. I frequently have requests for use of my photos via flickr mail...I may be slow responding but will get back to you.

    "I know Mary Frances only a short time,but I'm so impressed by the quality of her work!
    She has a very good eye for composition and a natural talent for showing the best side of the birds! The matching colours and details in her macro-work are amazing!
    In a short time she became one of my most favorite bird-photographers on FlickR.It is hard to understand that she started with photography only such a short time ago!
    Please,take time to see her pictures;let them pass slowly and you will agree with me that this is an excellent bird-photographer!
