My name is Suzi and I grew up in south Florida. Younger days spent at the beach began my venture into visual art and later photography. Florida is an ideal place to photograph free soaring birds. The state also offers many lakes and preserves creating opportunities to capture an abundance of native water birds. Patience truly is the thought for the day when setting out on the journey of photography in nature. Believe me I have learned that golden virtue. There is no hurrying about. Sitting and waiting patiently for the perfect moment can be time consuming but oh what bliss when the that moment presents itself.
