The images viewed on this web page are low resolution, and do not depict the true definition of the originals.
The Image collection on this page was acquired during the year 2003 - 2009. Locating and viewing these subjects is a delight, in that their environment and my own are so diverse. I believe that in addition to the visual capture, that the true joy is in the actual pursuit and imaging of these wonderful creatures.
Recent equipment used in imaging these subjects is a Nikon D300 and D-60 (DSLR) cameras, with a 105mm AF-S VR micro Nikkor, and a Nikon 300mm AF-S Telephoto lenses + TC-17 EII teleconverter and the Nikon PN-11 extension tube. A Nikon R1C1 CLS flash system is used occasionally for fill flash on smaller subjects while using these lenses.
The darkroom is Adobe Photoshop CS software.
