This image is titled "Fire Mist Sans Flight" and is based on my most famous photo called "Cranes in the Fire Mist." It features a flock of sandhill cranes, Ross' geese and snow geese at the Bosque del Apache, National Wildlife Refuge in central New Mexico.

This great egret (Ardea alba) is flying over the skies of Florida. This bird happens to be in breeding plumage. I used a slower shutter speed to convey motion since the bird was in flight.
This Eurasian eagle-owl (Bubo bubo) is one of my favorites. I love the pose. This is the largest owl in the world.
This hummingbird feeding at a flower is one of my photo paintings. The bird was in Madera Canyon, Arizona.

This great egret is actually fishing, but the bird looks like it is studying its reflection. I made this image at Little Estero Lagoon, on Fort Myers Beach, Fl.
The barn swallow (Hirundo rustica) is one of my favorite Passeriformes. They are absolutely stunning and watching a kettle of swallows in flight is mesmerizing.
