• Navigating This Site

    Photos rotating through the slide show above will be changed from time-to-time. Most can be found in the "Latest Images" collections, just under this message.

    And, speaking of Latest Images, that's where I post new stuff. Click on any picture box to see all of the images in that group.

    Beneath the slide show and to the right are several menu items. The "Gear" link is for sharing equipment-related experience and may include examination, speculation, praise, ranting, condemnation, frustration, etc. Featured at the moment are my takes on the tiny Nikon 1 V3 camera (with which many of the bird photos on this site were taken) and the popular Phantom camera-equipped quad copters.

    "Other Sites" will take you away from this one and link you to some created by friends of mine.

    "Contact" is a direct link to my email.
