First off I would like to say I am an amateur photographer that has been hooked from the start on this wonderful hobby. I love the challenge and seeing the results of not only mine, but other folks work is very rewarding. Always learning something new -never a dull moment. Right now I am mostly doing Nature & wildlife photography with some landscapes thrown in on the side.

The image I have here is one of a snowy egret doing some fishing while in flight across the pond early one morning. I love to get up to catch this activity - especially the early morning light. The lighting sometimes is magical. I shot with a Canon 60D and Canon 100-400L lens on this image.
