  • Mallard
    Here's a photo of a Mallard Duck: This was taken with my E-M5 mkII and a Sigma 50-500mm (4/3 mount on a MMF-3 adapter) - testing at full 500mm reach, or 1000mm equivalent.
  • Water Fowl
    Taken along Iron Horse Trail, I took advantage of the clear weather to get outdoors for a short while.  The rain has attracted what seems like a greater quantity of water

  • Hawk
    A family of hawks have moved into the neighborhood recently. Here's another in mid-screech. And this is what has likely drawn them to the neighborhood. These were all take

    Another hummingbird shot - experimenting with the MC-14 Teleconverter on the M.Zuiko 40-150 Pro at 150 for an equivalent reach of 420mm, or ((150mm X 1.4) X 2x Mu4/3 Crop)

    I was able to capture photos of a couple of 'birds' in the backyard this evening. Small birds, and a rather larger bird too. All shot with the M.Zuiko 40-150 Pro, cropping
  • Hummingbirds
    Several hummingbirds Wintered-over with us, likely on account of the mild conditions and my keeping the feeders full.  This one at roost, staying watchful of 'his' feeders

  • Giant Anteater
    Try as he might, this giant anteater seemed to enjoy the attention and loved having his photo taken, but proved a very difficult subject to photograph well due to the "bla
  • Giraffe
    Giraffes have so many looks... Same giraffe, different look: Taken with the Hexanon 135mm F3.2 - post done in Photogene4 on the iPad.
  • Gorillas
    We visited the S.F. Zoo recently - one of my favorite locations.  I've never come up dry for subject matter and a rewarding experience - especially as it relates to the ap
  • Hummingbird
    Our hummingbird has returned for the summer.  His visit to our feeder was a good opportunity to test drive the new OMD EM-5 – shot with the 135mm Hexanon prime.  A little
  • Sentinel
    Visited the Lindsay Wildlife Museum - this is "Sentinel" the Bald Eagle.  Head shots only - the birds are on perches, up high, sans pleasing backdrops. Here's another shot
  • Squirrel at Rest
    Captured this shot of a squirrel at Hap Magee Park.  There must have been a dozen or more (this one included) rocketing through the foliage preparing for Winter.  Collecti
  • Tiger
    Photo taken at the San Francisco Zoo.  The SF Zoo sets the bar in so many ways - clean, organized, historic but modern where it counts, with friendly staff, and featuring
  • Koala
    I captured this little fellow at the San Diego Zoo the summer of 2012. The original was fine, but am much happier with my post-processed cut which involved some cropping,

  • Blue Eyed Darner
    I captured this Blue Eyed Darner resting in a frequent hangout.  The composition is not good - even with the Hexanon 28mm, the macro converter limited the field of view du

    It was a good day for a challenge - capturing bees in-flight as they busily worked the Agapanthus in search of nectar this morning.  Approx 100 photos later, I was rewarde

    This curious garter (Thamnophis atratus zaxanthus) spent a fair amount of time following me about.  I missed a fantastic shot of the snake sun bathing on a rock in the mid
