The Timing of Birds 2018-19

A simple move of my bird feeder out my kitchen window, led to my patiently waiting to photograph them. Either alone, or in groups, I captured milliseconds of winged motion with backlit beauty. It was immediately inspirational. Soon, I saw the idiosyncrasies of each bird, and how they interacted with each other, in pairs, or, for their own best interest. They always seemed to be arriving at just the right time. Positioning themselves with their wings and feet in final position. Every part working to temporarily stop, while being aware of its surroundings and impending competitors. There were bird arguments, mating rituals, feedings, group dynamics, all done within seconds, all done in the air. Soon, I began to make inter-relational observations with my own timed swimming practice, the feeling of flying while flipping forward and backward in the pool, hands and feet in position, all hoping to complete the turn at just the right time. In the 1970’s, I studied New Guinea Papio-papio baboons as a Post-Baccalaureate student in comparative anthropology at the Detroit Zoo. This lasting memory was also brought forward to understand interspecies survival instincts, with individual and group behavior in birds. These same birds that formed 65 million years ago, still held their right to be on the planet, as I did. The interrelationships of my work and life experiences is what brought this beautiful work forward, one that continues to evolve, with time.
This work continues for the 2019 year. I am also making transparent birdhouses with photographs of the birds on panels of the house. Check back soon for additions to this work on this site. Thank you for taking the time to view my new work. There are 50 photographs in this portfolio.
