Birds

 

Ruffed Grouse

     Just east of Banff in Alberta, Canada, I was hiking in a forest and heard some rustling leaves. I slowly walked towards the sound and discovered three of these very small grouse searching for food. They were difficult to see blending in well with their surroundings.

True Freedom

     Having access to the controls of an Airbus 320...a million bucks.  Having your own set of personal wings...priceless.

The Beauty of Nature

     Although just a common seagull, it is still a very beautiful bird.  This photo was taken on a boat in one of Norway's spectacular fjords.

Feeding Time

     This picture has become one of my favorite photos.  It has a little bit of everything that's important in life- family, fun, food, nature, beauty, peace, and tranquility.

Symbol of Freedom

     I took this picture of a seagull and adjusted the color to something abstract.  This image reminds me of freedom, the ability to soar to the clouds without any restrictions.
