Birds, Birds, Birds

My father was a bird lover who always had bird feeders and nest boxes in the backyard. He loved watching them. His love for birds is something I share now. I enjoy going out to look for birds with my camera and when I do, I always wish my dad was still here to enjoy it with me. Here is a selection of bird photo art I have created in recent years. I’ll share some of my straight out of the camera bird shots in another post at some point in the future.

Florida has many wonderful places to photograph birds. Most of these were captured at Ward Park here in Winter Park, FL where I’m lucky enough to walk with Mimi dog every day.
