Welcome to Jerry Acton's Nature Photo Galleries.

A lifelong love of nature has led me to a passion for nature photography. I enjoy capturing bird and animal images that show their varied behavior. Nearly every day I post a new photo, with a description of what was happening in the moment.

My wife Lynn and I share our registered Backyard Wildlife Habitat in Berkshire, NY
( play video ) with our dog, cats, horses, and the birds and animals featured in my photos.
