Fly away

We have just added some amazing nature photography to our For Sale Gallery courtesy of Richard Simonsen. He has dedicated hours on end to capture some stunning close up shots of loons and other birds. Since tomorrow is Independence Day, I thought his shot of an eagle was particularly appropriate. Richard also has some images of the Blue Angels and other scenic shots from his travels around the country. To see all of Richard's work visit his gallery.

Richard’s images of the Minnesota State Bird, the Common Loon, come from immersing himself in the life of one family of loons over two summers in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness of northern Minnesota. His photograph of the underwater loon made in the fall of 1997 is a classic image of one of nature’s best underwater hunters.
