MARY KEITHAN Artist/Photographer

Where ever Mary Keithan has traveled she has enjoyed discovering nature and the challenge of capturing images which attract her. She photographs the small birds and the big birds of the Everglades. She admits being there at the right time to catch a unique moment is both practice and luck.

Keithan has been going to the Everglades every year since 2004 and usually returns with prize winning timeless moments. There is a bit of poetry in her landscapes. I like to return to certain spots that have an enchantment for me. Each time I return the landscape is altered, still I find the changes offer new opportunities.

Here I am thinking of the devastating storms which periodically ravage the Everglades. Returning, instead of Roseate Spoonbills and Ibis roosting in the mangrove trees which were wiped out by Hurricane Wilma, I found Skimmers giving me a flying display just above the water. What a show that was!

Every year mary Keithan travels to the Florida everglades to do photo studies of the wild life, water fowl and birds of prey native to that habitat.
