His photographic study takes us on a visual journey from the avian mecca of the Meritt Island coast of Florida to the winter wild snow geese migration of the Bosque Del Apache Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico. Rare avian species such as the "White Morph Reddish Egret" displaying it's brilliant wings of light are shown along with over one hundred other color and black and white images. Here we find a close look at the wild birds of North America and the pure clean backdrops of light that illuminates them.
