My passion has returned and I am hitting the nature trails every chance I get. The images posted are from the Maryland, Virginia and Delaware area. There is abundant wildlife, you just need some local knowledge and patience. I will keep posting new images to this Gallery as the summer heats up. Enjoy and find time to enjoy the beauty nature provides.

All the best,

In June 2014, I visited Shenandoah National Park, Big Meadow area. This is the time to photograph the fawns. This year for some unknown reason I only saw two fawns in the meadow and they were difficult to photograph. I focused on the Black Bear and saw at least twelve individual bears on this trip. I also focused on the birds and flowers, but the Bears won... Bears 12, Fawn 2. Enjoy.
