It is difficult to balance all of the unseen work.  Capturing the image is the most exhilarating part of course, and next to that is the discovery of feather folicles, eyering bumps, or, the shock of my reflection in a passerine's eyeball.  This is a long way of overexplaining my inconsistent web presence.  

Looking below at earlier bird images, I see it is time to post more recent photographs.. As always, you may click here, or on any image to get to the "full" gallery, another dynamic project with constant additions.
