I've been living and working in Japan for over 20 years now. I became seriously interested in photography just over six years ago. My primary focus has been wildlife. However, other than bugs and drunks about the only wildlife that I ever see here are birds. I've been on Flickr for more than six years now. I'm interested in branching out into a variety of other subjects other than birds here at 500px, but I will still post bird shots here as well. I've seldom used any of my glass other than my Canon EF 300mm 1:4 L IS and my EF 90-300mm f/4.5-5.6. So I guess I'm pretty much a beginner at everything other than birds. I'm also new to my 60D and still learning my way around it. My previous camera was a Canon Digital Kiss X. It pretty much died a slow death while I took over 140,000 shots with it. I like being outdoors with a camera as much as possible.
