I have loved birds and photographing them since I was a child...I wished that I could fly! This book contains unique photographs I have taken of shorebirds at Torrey Pines State Beach in San Diego, California, over a period of about one year. It includes my favorite two raptors, the Peregrine Falcon, which is the fastest bird in the world, able to dive in flight at over 200 miles per hour, and the Osprey, whose wingspan grows up to five feet across! It has taken much time and patience to photograph these beautiful birds and I know you will enjoy especially the action shots!
I grew up on the island of Oahu in Hawaii where I began photographing undersea animals and Hawaiian Monk Seals while doing volunteer work with them for four years. I now reside in San Diego, California where I am pursuing my passion, currently photographing the wildlife, including wild birds, bunnies and coyotes., whales and dolphins. My current focus is the shorebirds in San Diego, including Peregrine Falcons and Osprey. Some of my photos are being sold at the San Diego Botanic Garden gift store.
