Hi! Welcome to Orcinus Fotograffy! My name is Kimo. I've recently relocated to Phoenix, AZ and currently am attempting to get out and find sources of wildlife and nature, around the Phoenix area. I love playing tag-team photography, so don't be shy!

Im a US military brat, being born and mostly raised in Heidelberg, Germany, of Hawaiian and German descent. We lived in Heidelberg, Nurnberg, Munich and Mannheim, in Germany and Ft. Ord, CA; Ft. Lewis, WA; Ft. Riley, KS and Ewa Beach, HI during my fathers gov't career. I also served, at Lackland AFB in San Antonio, TX; Upper Heyford, England; and Whiteman AFB in MO. Continued studies at Control Data Institute in Mannheim and Computer Studies at University of Maryland- Heidelberg.

Returned to Force Protection career in Heidelberg, Germany; then Eagle Base/ FOB Morgan in Bosnia; Camp Bondsteel in Kosovo and then for AKAL Security aboard Norwegian Cruise Lines, Pride Of America and Pride Of Hawai'i. I moved to Breaux Bridge, LA in 2010, and am still amazed by Lake Martins' critters and landscapes. I have not had to venture too far from there, as there's always something different. Moved to Phoenix, Sept 2017, but just now getting settled in, to job and housing.

Proud member of Orca Conservancy, is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1996 as the Tokitae Foundation, calling for the retirement of Tokitae, also known as Lolita, a Southern Resident orca captured in Puget Sound, Washington in August 1970 and now living alone in Miami Seaquarium, the smallest killer whale tank in the United States. In 2000 the group changed its name to Orca Conservancy, broadening its mission to do everything possible to help Lolita's family back in the Sound, to ensure healthy fish runs, to clean up toxic sites, to encourage responsible whale watching, and to prevent an oil spill that in one fell swoop could wipe them out. And if they ever got into trouble, Orca Conservancy resolved to move fast to marshall the public, financial and political support needed to get them out of harm's way and right back to being wild whales again. To keep them from going into a tank in the first place.

The Cypress Island Preserve is situated between Breaux Bridge and Lafayette, Louisiana.
Approximately 9,500 acres of important cypress-tupelo swamp and bottomland hardwood forest habitat is protected.

Beginning in late January, thousands of Great Egrets, followed by Little Blue Herons, Cattle Egrets, Snowy Egrets and Roseate Spoonbills make their nests and rear their young in the rookery. Great Blue Herons and Neotropic Cormorants may be seen in the distant tree tops. Expect a spectacular rookery view from March through June. The 2.5-mile walking levee trail is open from the fall to the spring and is suitable for children. Because this remarkable natural area is easily accessible and affords visitors with incredible wildlife viewing opportunities, our Cypress Island Preserve receives thousands of visitors a year from all over the world.
