From a dusty crinkled old photo to the most beautiful professionally framed portrait, every

photograph has a story. These images are considered to be some of our most valuable treasures

and to us, they are “never just a photograph”.

Birding in June and July

Summer is a busy time, and it's sure been flying by!  Here are some of my favorite shots I took while I was out birding in June and July.

Along the way I saw some beautiful wild flowers and tiny insects,

as well as a cute little chipmunk.

Even though I wasn't birding when I took this last shot, it's one of my favorites this summer.  I took this at 11:00 pm with the half moon as my only light, at Dee Wright Observatory near Sisters Oregon.
