Below are some of my favorite image captures from 2013. I spent several months at the end of the year creating many of my “Cutouts”. Those are not displayed here. Most of the Cutouts were used in the “Birds I Have Known” galleries, so if you have an interest you may look there. The images below have been selected from my blog posts during the 2013 calendar year. I may not have chosen YOUR favorites from this year. I had to winnow out these from the over 1000 (including the Cutouts). I have to thank my good friend Loretta Hill for her help in selecting the final 50 images for this set. Don’t worry though, all the original image sets are still attached to the blogs.
