Cormorants from St Michael’s Manor in St. Mary’s County.  They were very far away, and my focus was off a little, but I liked the reflection...

Headshot practice

I was practicing headshots for a February headshot photoshoot, when I made this one of a lovely neighbor.  It was nice of her to help me out.  I had never used a white background before and borrowed one from a friend.  I hope she likes it.

Pelican pictures Mexican and U.S.

I just edited this Mexican pelican photo from last year for an animal critique session.  I participate in an animal study group from the Photographic Society of America.  (I blurred the background more on this one)  I thought it would be interesting to compare it with a local Maryland Pelican.  It is certainly more colorful!

We don't often see pelicans from where we live, so it was a treat to photograph one nearby.  This was in 2016.

Toy Poodle All Dressed Up

 I was practicing my pet photography.  We dressed Sarita up in her best clothes with adorable pink bows.  Isn't she sweet?

Apricot toy poodles are so cute, but maybe I am a little prejudiced.
