Bob Corey's Photos

Before he passed away I asked a family friend and award-winning photographer Bob Corey if he would be willing to share some of his photographs of wildlife. Bob lived in the great Central Valley of California--what Jerry Haslam of SSU calls "The Other California." Bob got back to me with a dozen slides of various birds that he has photographed in Stanislaus County. I have enjoyed the photos and I hope that you do too.

Other than cropping all of the photos for economical presentation purposes, none of the dozen slides have been altered in any way.

You can view the images in one of two ways. Either follow the text links below to go directly to the jpegs or take this link to the thumbnails.  The jpegs range in size from 78k to 156k.

In memory of you, Bob!
