About Me

I am a corporate employee during the week in the Tampa bay area. I love spending my weekends outdoors hiking and taking pictures of birds and nature. I have a Nikon D7200 camera. My primary lens is a Nikon 300 F4 for birding and Nikon 70-200 F2.8. Other lenses I use less often are  Nikon 80-400, Nikon 24-120 mm, Nikon nifty 50mm, Nikon Macro 85mm and Sigma 10-20mm (for landscapes).

Thanks for stopping by!

    I was looking at your blog & pics. Just wanted to let you know there are new baby geese (2) at Crescent Lake. There were 3 but 1 went missing today. Also there is 1 maybe 2 more mama geese sitting on eggs. Just thought you may be interested. Lovely work!!

  4. Dina, I must apologize for not recognizing you as a follower sooner!!! I can see that I’m going to be loving your blog. And, your pictures beat mine all to heck. But then the D7000 trumps a little old D60 anytime!!! Neverthesless, thanks for following along and I’ll be doing the same.

  5. Me again. I notice that you follow Arthur Morris’ website. If you are not already aware of it, take a look at this one. http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/board/41 It’s a nature and wildlife photo forum and Art Morris posts there on occasion. I have never seen such wonderful photography and have been checking then out for a couple of years. I’m not in their league but I do love to look.

  6. Great photos! Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting on my Bald Eagle photography. I will look forward to following you.

    I have been enjoying reading you posts for quite a while now. Your photos are wonderful. I am looking to get a better lens. Just wondering what you are using for your photos?

    Hi Dina Just discovered your blog through WBW. You are a fantastic photographer. I haven’t seen all your work yet but your past few posts are amazing. I do not know how to leave a comment on your posts. Is there a simple way? Looking forward to seeing much more. Margaret

    Sorry if my english is not very good I speak spanish and I did not want to stop writing to you. I am a nature lover and a beginner in photography but it isn’t necessry know much to stand out the beautiful pictures you take and your ability to capture the right moment. It’s amazing what you do just for the love of nature. Thanks for sharing it.

  13. Thanks for the camera info. I am thinking your landscape shot in the header must be the bride between Tampa and Clearwater. Dianne

    I enjoy your photos. I’m learning of places to take photos since we are in the same area of Florida.

    Great to come across a fellow blogger and hiker. Indeed, D7100 is one of the best crop sensor camera around. 🙂
