My photo
I been a professional photographer since I worked for the US Government documenting Test and Evaluation of Research and Development projects for the US Army and US Navy in the later half of the 1980s. I came home to Maine to finish my Marketing Degree at USM and began to work full time in Market Research and Marketing for many years while documenting weddings and occasional photojournalist and commercial jobs on the weekends. In 2001 I again returned to photography as a full time trade and have never been a happier man. I love working with creative individuals, couples, small businesses and select Non-Profits and can’t imagine working in any other trade. In 1987 I was lucky enough to wed my high school sweetheart and we now live in a cozy little solar powered, recycled bungalow a mile deep in our woods in the Western Hills of Maine with our two brilliant home-schooled teenage daughters and our three cats.

Wol

A very nice owl has greeted us lately from one of our neighbors' trees as we proceed down our increasingly muddy road to our little cabbage in the woods.



Quite often we hear the owls hooting to each other in the woods at night along with the coyotes hunting, rabbits having been caught by said coyotes, raccoons copulating, etc... but it isn't often that we get to see the owls up and about in the middle of the daylight hours.

Oh, Fantastic shot Mr. B!

I have heard them at night as well, but never had the privelege of seeing one.

I just got my first raccoon sighting/photos last weekend, such a thrill! (But hopefully she won't hang around too long.)

This one seems to enjoy sunning in one of the trees right next to Bill and Len's driveway. Look for it midmorning. :)

That is a barred owl. There is one in the woods behind my house as well.

The birds do so love hanging out with Bill and Len, and who can blame them? Such a lovely spot. ;)

I've been looking for mr. owl, but no luck yet.
