I’m a photographer and a naturalist living in Massachusetts. This blog is for notes and photographs of what I see on nature walks: plants, birds, flowers, and butterflies, among other things.
My web site, Portraits and Abstracts, is an online portfolio. Since the web site changes slowly, visit Nature Diary to see my latest images. I post about once a week or whenever I get to it. I also post book reviews when I read something worthwhile on nature, photography, plants, or insects.
For those curious about cameras and equipment, I use a Canon DSLR with macro and other lenses, often longer focal lengths from 180mm to 400mm. I also use the Canon MP-E 65 lens for high magnification work. I use a tripod for most images.
Visit my Exhibits page for a list of galleries where you can see prints of my images.
The best introduction to my photographic projects is the following video. I need to change the cover image – the video is not about technique much at all; it’s about why I make images, my photographic motivations:
Thanks to the great people who put the video together for me!
