My day job is teaching engineering mechanics at UWM
I started taking pictures after I noticed some birds as I walked though Estabrook Park for exercise.
I use a not-very-fancy and seven-year-old Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR 16-megapixel digital camera with a nice 42x (24-1000mm) manually-operated optical zoom, automatic focus, and image stabilization.
If you’d rather just see all the pictures, please go to my Flickr page.
For all the other stuff, I just ask Dr. Google. The ability to search for similar images is handy sometimes.
