Autumn Backyard Nature in New Jersey.

Birds of the day viewed at the birdfeeder and in the backyard: Red-bellied Woodpecker, House Finch.

The slideshow is still not working. Tried to use the new PhotoShelter Importer plugin for WordPress to import images for the photoblog. Doesn’t seem to see TIF images. So back to manually importing images one at a time. There was a previous PhotoShelter Importer that was really easy to use. Unfortunately, it stopped working 2 years ago (didn’t accept my username/password)

I am a scientist by training (Eckerd College, BSc; Caltech, Ph.D.). 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 and world traveler. 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.
