Springtime Backyard Nature in New Jersey.

Morning visitors to the patio birdfeeder: Black-capped Chickadee, Carolina Wren, House Finch, White-throated Sparrow, Northern Cardinal.


Daily backyard visitors. Individual images in the slideshow are available in my PhotoShelter Gallery.

Early Springtime Flowers: The Purple Crocuses are almost gone, Daffodils everywhere (and the deer don’t eat them), some Forsythia (that survived the deer). The Tulip plants are getting bigger, but haven’t bloomed yet (deer permitting).

I worked for 27 years as a Chemist in the Pharmaceutical Industry developing processes to manufacture medicines for human and animal health. I now spend my time as a photographer updating images in My Image of the Day Photoblog, and My eBird (with images of nearly 450 bird species). hope post COVID-19 to be a world traveler again. My interests include the natural world, wildlife, landscapes, sky, and seascapes, travel, and astrophotography. I look for unique ways of viewing the world and presenting my images. I have traveled to over 55 countries in six continents, often on Semester at Sea voyages. While at home in New Jersey, I spend time on home renovation and expansion of a wildflower garden/meadow.
