My name is H.J.Ruiz, I live in the northwest region of Georgia, USA. In company of my wife Lucy and son Tyler.

Photography has been a great factor in my life for many years. In the last few years I’ve put more emphasis on photographing birds. But I did not stop there. My interest went beyond photography to studying and observing birds, then analyzing my findings. Having gotten in deeper into Bird Photography I realized that I’m extending myself too far by doing general photography. I’m confident that my work will live up to justify the change of venue with your help of course!

I beg you to be critical of my work and write me your comments or opinions. Do not Β stop with use ofΒ the “like” button. I’m more interested to know what… (if any) Β impression you have about the photo at all and write it down. This is important not only for me but many other readers who want to learn.

Thank you in advance!

  3. Your blog opened my eyes to new possibilities. I am now stuck to travel blogging and I realized the “room” is too crowded. Your blog is an inspiration to shift my paradigms. Will visit your blog site once-in-a-while, if I cannot receive posts from you….

  4. Crikey, HJ – what makes you decide what to put on which site …?
    I have to leave this one, or else I shan’t get anything done ! πŸ™‚

    • I do not decide what to write, I write what it is. Events in my daily life and such. It’s like writing a brief journal of my day. If you were referring to my pictures, I pick some fresh pictures shot during the past few days, kind of illustrating what I wrote. Thank you for sharing M-R! πŸ™‚

    • I don’t mind at all but I have to tell you that I can not accept the nomination, my blog is awards free and non-profit. However, I do appreciate your generous gesture and that makes proud of my work. Thank you very much Alfred! πŸ™‚

  5. Well, we love birds so to me your blog rocks no matter what anyone may say. I spend lots of time exploring local urban trails and bird watching. Of course I got laid off and we’re retiring early soon so I have nothing better to do anyway. Excellent pictures; I will follow with interest even though I’m unqualified to give photography critiques. Hope you check us out at http://www.experimentalexpats.com

  6. Your work is amazing! Would you give me permission to copy a photo of your American Flamingo so I can try to paint it in watercolour? If so, and I do paint it, I would give you recognition as your photo. Thank you for considering this.

      • Thank you so much for your generosity. If I do paint it I will certainly credit you as the photographer. I respect the rights of all artists and you are certainly a great one in the art of photography. Much appreciated.
