Now, I am fully aware of the importance of preserving nature and wildlife areas.
I have now begun to change my galleries so purchases of my photos will allow me to donate towards the preservation of Orange County wildlife. I see it disappearing every day.
My website is OCwildlife.com
I wish I had more time to sit here, but my neck won't let me. The eyes after ten years on the net are also saying no. ;~)
This month I managed to get another, longer lens and am having a blast. It's very heavy though. Talk about a neck wrecker! ;~)Here's some more fun I've had!
A gorgeous Mandarin Duck in OC!

Bighorn Rams above Lake Mead, unreal, I just sat down amongst them.
The horns clanking when they get nervous is a sound to remember...

Young White Tailed Kite, a hawk so scarce now in OC. I was thrilled to find a flock of them nearby, only to be saddened by our city ripping out the area...
