LA JOLLA (June, 2021) - I hadn’t been down to the tide pools in a few years. But I had some friends in town staying nearby, so I took a road trip. Although it was mid-day, I realized how much I miss this place. I’m definitely going to head back down soon for some sunset photos.

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (June, 2021) - Was walking into the Wetlands and right up on the ridge to my left were these two juvenile females. This is an area that you rarely see them. It was awesome because they hung out for photos and then left. Here’s a few from the day.

SAN PEDRO, Calif. (May, 2021) - Caught this young Red Fox early in the morning by himself. He was very hungry to the point where he crawled under the fence and looked at me from about 12 feet away. It was raining earlier in the morning, so that's why he looks a little wet. When he realized I didn't have any food for him, he crawled back under the fence and I saw him catch something for breakfast.
HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (May, 2021) - At my count, there are three baby Osprey this year. It's amazing how quickly they grow. They are almost the size of their mom now. The sequence below is of the male catching a Midshipman and while trying to deliver it to the nest, two crows chased him for 5 minutes.

ONTARIO, Calif. (April, 2021) - This is the second year I've followed these Burrowing Owls. There is a debate going on regarding the field they live in as to whether it will become a FedEx facility? The Audubon Society has been attending local hearings to try and save them. Hopefully, they will be saved. Here are some photos from last weekend.

(March, 2021) - Captured a couple portraits of Tokyo with the Leica Summicron 90mm f/2. I love this lens because it is quick and easy to acquire focus. Since cats move around so much, it's hard to lock manual focus. I think this focal length combined with the maximum aperture makes this lens usable for slow moving subjects. I guess it's one of my go-to cat lenses.
