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 my online portfolio and print sales location. Since the web site changes pretty 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!
