Birds

Not quite National Geographic, but birds are beautiful, fascintating creatures and getting better bird shots has become a passion. From the Hackensack River literally in our front yard to further afield….this is the photography  I am passionate about.

This is a somewhat varied portfolio from some classic and stunning shots to the interesting…like the bald eagle catching a fish on the  Hackensack taken from quite a distance in failing winter evening light (they skim their massive talons just below the surface as the skim just above it to spear or grab an unwary fish).
