Opening night reception at ArtServe was a quite a fantastic celebration of photography... all style, genres. You name it, it was represented. "Rosie" garnered a lot of admirers too along with "Grace" and "Moon Over the Marsh". You can get a snippet of the excitement here, www.facebook.com/ArtServeFlorida/videos/317844253362272rve. She really looks quite stunning in pink flying across the gallery wall. Big Thanks to Sophie Bonet, main curator with support from the ArtServe team for this amazing show featuring works from 23 photographers.
Honored to have several pieces available thought the ENDANGERED: Art4Apes website. Thirty percent of all sales are donated to the Center for Great Apes, a United States designated 501(c)(3) charitable organization providing a permanent sanctuary for great apes in need of lifetime care. See https://www.centerforgreatapes.org/.
Images above are representative of some of my featured pieces. Honored to have my works juried into each year of the Endangered Exhibit since its inception eight years ago.
Honored that "Red-winged Black Bird Chicks" received special merit in the Light, Space and Time recent photography competition out of 895 entries from around the world. Submissions were from 29 different countries including entries from 35 different states and the district of Columbia. That places it in the top three percent. It was a special moment for me to see (thankfully with a log lens) these hungry little beings calling for their mom. Nature is so awesome.
This male Red-winged Blackbird (top image) was doing everything he could to attract a mate from constant conk-la-ree song to fluffed-up, puffed-out bright shoulder patches. And, the beautiful Red-winged Blackbird female seemed to be making him work really hard to get her attention. Watched them well over 30 minutes and the courting continued. They seemed to take turns flying back and forth to the same area. Although, they were never at the same spot at the same time. Photographed at Green Cay Wetlands.
