Up and running

Welcome to the launch of the Colin Michaelis Photography website.  I am still ironing out some kinks – I think that will be the case for some time – so please pardon the hidden features (aka bugs).

On the website I show a portfolio of a few of my photographs.  I’ll also include a link to some of my favorite photography websites and blogs.  And along with the website will come intermittent, but hopefully not too infrequent, blog posts too, this one being the first.


It is officially spring and the time for new things – and I don’t just mean the website.  Even though we still have snow on the ground, over the last week we have seen the return of Red-winged Blackbirds and Kildeer.  On the weekend I saw an Eastern Bluebird at Independence Grove and the birds are starting to show their breeding plumage.  Have you noticed how bright and fluffy the Robins are? Not to mention the Cardinals.

Bluebirds are a favorite of mine but last year my pictures of them all left something to be desired. So, better bluebird sightings and pictures are a goal for this spring and summer.  I even have a bluebird nesting box going up this weekend.  What are my chances of getting some bluebirds to find and use it?  They are probably not good, but we are going to try and I will keep you posted on the results.
