Digital Photography

Through a variety of circumstances I have entirely replaced my film camera equipment with Nikon digital equipment. I now shoot with a Nikon D300 body, a 70-300 ED VR lens and a Speedlight SB 600 flash. I have also added a 105mm Macro lens to help photograph insects. To create the web-site I used Adobe CS4 Photoshop, Dreamweaver and Lightroom. I had a variety of people tell me that the 70-300 lens was too short for doing bird photography. I think it's just fine. And since the proof is in the pudding I am listing pages, below, that have photography done by the digital equipment.

In reference to the identification of the insects below, I should acknowledge that I am a good ornithologist, not an entomologist. All of the insects, and most of the flowers were shot with the 105 Macro lens.
