Much of my bird photography work over the years can be seen here. I've been fiddling around with other photographic subjects too in addition to birds.


I currently use a Canon SX50 for my photography work. Much of what I upload now is only for rarity documentation for ebird. I used to upload much more quality work, but now I don't spend as much time and no longer have my DSLR.


I had purchased a Canon 30D and a Canon 100-400mm IS USM telephoto lens in June 2006. Before that I used a Canon 300D (Digital Rebel), along with a Vivitar 100-400mm lens. My other equipment includes a Canon 580EX Speedlite, a Flash Xtender (Better Beamer), a Canon 28-135mm IS USM lens, and a 18-55mm lens.


I've also done some digiscoping, mostly using a Nikon Coolpix 4500 with a Swarovski ATS80HD scope but also trying to use my 30D with a 50mm f/1.8 lens.
