With 2014 approaching, I wanted to wish everyone a happy new year and share my personal favorite images from 2013.
A Great Grey winter: Last winter I had a great opportunity to photograph great grey owls in Ottawa. The frozen winter landscape provided some unique perspective and images.
A colorful spring: Back in spring, I photographed Californian shorebirds. Spring is mating season for the American Avocets. The plumage is in full breeding colors creating an interesting color pallet.
An animated summer: The highlight of the summer was the burrowing owl family that I photographed early in the season. The youngsters were quite playful as they were learning to fly and hunt. I was lucky to capture their practice flights before they started to mature and thus became more conservative in their activities later in the season.
An exciting fall: The fall was more eventful than I had thought, I was able to photograph a male harrier in California coast, one of my favorite species as well as a handsome snowy owl in Canada again. The snow covered landscape in Ottawa provided some dramatic scenes that show the snowy’s habitat.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of my friends for their support and encouragement. Thank you all for viewing and happy 2014!
