photographing and learning about wildlife
I enjoy nature, birding and hiking. I recently took up photography, and I enjoy sharing my photos with whomever wishes to view them.

Cammie - I use a Cannon Powershot SX40. It is actually a rather inexpensive point and shoot. It has a 35x zoom with 840mm capability. I have taken photos with it that are just as crisp and nice as some I have seen taken by 8000.00 dollar setups. Btw, thanks for the kind words. I have taken a break from Project Noah and have literally thousands of photos I could upload. I may do a smidgen here and there when time permits.
Actually I live in a large city. There just so happens to be several Metro Parks nearby. That being said, I find that nature can be experienced almost everywhere, from your back yard, to a park in the middle of a city, to a wilderness on the edge of nowhere. You only have to look.
My first experience with Tarpon was in the Cayman Islands. I was scuba diving into a cave as about 15-20 tarpon were coming out. I assure you, they are massive when seen next to you in the water. Having said that, they are very gentle fish for their size and beautiful to boot.
