Welcome! Thanks for checking out my 500px collection of images. I have had an abiding passion for art and photography from a very early age. I love traveling and discovering natural landscapes or nature scenes that evoke an emotional response in me. As an artist I feel a strong attraction to the timeless, sublime beauty of nature. Ansel Adams famously said: "You make a photograph, you do not take a photograph". I take his words to heart and try to "make" photographs that are beyond the ordinary in every possible way. I may fail just as many times as I succeed, but in the end since it's all a learning experience anyway, I still have the successful ones that I can enjoy and share with the world. All of the works you see on this website, along with many others are available from my main website: www.finelightarts.photoshelter.com as museum grade prints on fine art paper or canvas.

I really need to have the correct name for this bird image, otherwise I will have a hard time selling it as a stock image - most stock image websites require correctly identified images, especially exotic animals.

So I got to thinking, why not create a contest and offer a free custom archival print (a $95 value) to the person who correctly identifies the bird in the image. (Please, only open to for U.S. and Canadian residents).

To enter simply add a comment to this blog with your specific correct name for the bird.

(It would be helpful if you include a link to a picture from a web site that would show that the name you gave me is in fact the correct one for this bir ...
