My most fantastic trip was to Patagonia in Chile and Argentina in 2005. That was were I fell in love with wildlife photography. I saw Andean Condors, guanaco, rhea, buzzard eagles, penguins, glaciers. The people were warm and very friendly.
I'm a member of groups such as the Wildlife Federations, Nature Conservancy, Audobon Soc., and others. I support them financially. I'm passionate about bringing awareness of the endangered species and their habitats.
I'm fascinated with migratory avian, particularly Sandhill cranes. They travel sooo far.
