Want to use one of these photos as your desktop background? Just click on a thumbnail, then right-click the full-sized photo after it loads and choose "Set as Background" - that's all!

I use ACD Systems - The makers of ACDSee 8 Photo Manager to catalogue my photography, perform fast and simple edits and create "contact sheets." I think it's the best choice for file management, too! is where I buy all my birding optics. They're fast, fair and have the best prices around. I'm using their Eagle Optics Ranger Platinum 10x50 binoculars. They've been through jungle, desert, and frozen glaciers and are like new! Try them for your next binoculars or spotting scope, you'll be glad you did!
All photos on this page were taken with Canon 10D and 20D digital SLRs - they're wonderful tools!
