Joe was able to capture this cute Finch while it was getting a bite to eat during the ice storm in 2021.

After my Spinal Cord Injury I got into photography in 2003 by using a homemade mouth stick to operate a digital camera by having a short tripod mounted to a clipboard which the camera were mounted to the tripod as the camera were to my eye level. I keep a lapboard mounted on top of the arm wrests of my wheelchair with camera, tripod and clipboard on top on the lapboard. I use the mouth stick to make adjustments with camera button settings and use a remote shutter button to push with my write hand. I also have a touch LCD screen on my latest camera which has a touch shutter button I operate with my mouth stick.
