Hello!

Welcome to my site. I take photos, and learn life lessons. I hope you are inspired by what you find.

Ezra 7:10

“Now Ezra had determined in his heart to study the law of the LORD, obey it, and teach its statutes and ordinances in Israel.”

'Cause I Like Birds

'Cause I Like Birds

In 2014, a simple snapshot of a Baltimore Oriole started my obsession with birds and photography.  While my photographic interests have changed over the years (more expanded than changed actually), capturing images of birds has remained a constant.  In 2017 I didn't have as much time to photograph birds as in years past (chasing after my wonderful kiddos keeps me busy) but I did manage to find time to photograph 117 species of birds this year.  Here they all are! 

(Not all are the best quality, sometimes I only get a fuzzy image as something flies or swims by!)
