"Fishing" (soundtrack: "I want you" - by Gato Barbieri)
115 of 138 sequential images of a Bald Eagle catching and beaching a super-sized Rainbow Trout. I removed the most OOF shots in the lot so there will be some apparent gaps.

Birds in Livermore
Over the past year, I have been blessed to experience the wonders of nature in this green-friendly TriValley. Livermore is my home and until recently I had no idea how many species of bird called Livermore home too. I have touched on just a small number of those varied species here. I will continue to capture these darlings as I can...please enjoy as I have.

Turkey Vultures are a regular part of life here in California. This guy and his cohorts have been hanging out at our dog walk location for about a week now. He is very photogenic...ahem! Especially those eyes!!!

A wonderful morning with the animals as they started their day. This was the most active I've ever seen these many animals. A great day for imaging.

California Trails @ the Oakland Zoo., a fun look into California's wildlife (except for the Giraffe, of course. He was in the main Zoo and way to photogenic to pass by). We were among the first to view this new exhibit. This page is Jaguar heavy. I'd never seen one before and this guy was very active.

My first efforts at bird work. Not easy! For each of these few okay shots, there were at least ten wastes.
