I have been a photographer, both professionally and as a hobby, for 35 years. I shoot with a Nikon D200 and three "antique" fixed length Nikon lenses that I could probably no longer afford to buy. As a professional I specialized in sailing and sailing boat racing and worked as a freelancer for many major magazines. I currently live on the edge of Glacier National Park, one of the most photographic places on earth, and have gone back to taking pictures just for the sheer joy of it.

Caption: I happened upon this hawk grounded in the snow in the middle of a snow storm. It appeared to be either tired or injured. I took a few photos and then carried it into the house, fed it water with a dropper. After about ten minutes it it stood up and flapped its wings. I opened the door and off it flew.
