Featured on Shutterbug online!

10 07 2019

Last summer I was contacted by an editor I work with through Nikon and also Shutterbug magazine. He wanted to run a photo and behind-the-shot story of one of my images in the July 2018 issue of the magazine. Then one month before its debut, the print version of the magazine folded (in other words, Shutterbug was shuttered!). This would have been the second time my work would have appeared in the print publication (the first time was when my fern stamps were featured). Last week I got an email asking if they could run it online and I said of course! So here’s the image and the behind-the-shot story. Special thanks to my friend Sherry Goldstein (the woman who pointed this beautiful critter out to me). Click on the link below to go to the post!

Altamira Oriole

12 03 2019

Spent a wonderful afternoon at the National Butterfly Center in Mission, TX with my high school friend, Vanessa. I was using my Nikon D850 for macro shots, my iPhone for overall shots, and my Nikon Coolpix P1000 for bird shots. There is such diversity of wildlife in this sanctuary that is adjacent to Bentsen-Rio Grande Valley State Park. I wanted to see this sanctuary before “the wall” cuts through the middle of it. I talked at length with an employee of the center and learned quite a bit about the issues related to the wall, as well as the myriad water and environmental laws that are being circumvented for this project.

This is an Altamira Oriole, just one of the many unusual birds we saw this afternoon.

Chinese Ground Orchid (Bletilla striata)

23 05 2018

I had the most fun shooting this particular group of blooms of a Chinese Ground Orchid (Bletilla striata). The plant is appropriately named–they only grow about 1-1.5 feet tall. They were in the hosta and fern shade garden at Meadowlark Botanical Garden and the bright green sunny, dancing shapes in the background made the hot pink just pop. I spread out a trash bag because the area was quite muddy and I had my tripod way low to the ground to get the shots. I think it was well worth the effort!
