Retired Information Technology professional. Among my many interests such as genealogy, stock market, computers and photography, nature is the most compelling magnet. I simply enjoy photographing and learning about each plant, bird, bug, etc., what its role is, and what I can do to help its survival. I enjoy every minute spent taking care of trees, shrubs, flowers and the biggest satisfaction is that one in a hundred perfect photo of a bird or a bug enjoying its life in my backyard.
