"I've shown that to some bird experts like Jeff Gordon from the American Birding Association; he leads tours all over the world. He's never, ever seen anything like this," Fleming said. Fleming said he'd shoot ev- ery day there was promise for good light. Although titled "The Beach," the bookcontains images of coastal Delaware's wildlife and nature. Primehook, Rehoboth and Indian River Inlet, Delaware Bay and Broadkill Beach are included. "That's the Great Dune. It's the highest spot on the East COast between the Outer Banks arid Maha's Vineyard," Flem- ing said, showing a photo of the moon rising over the dune. There's a photo of a thun- derstorm shot from a Cape Henlopen State Park dune cross- iifg, looking toward Rehoboth Bach.

Regarding the use of software such as Photoshop, Fleming said to get into a book, every digi- tal photo uses a software tool. "What you're seeing in the book is the color that I saw," he said. Fleming said it's common for people to say he works a lot of hours to get his shots. But, he said, that isn't so. "The light is only good in the morning around sunrise, and in the eve- ning around sunset," he said. Fleming's idea of good would be what many would call perfect. "I had a thousand great egrets and snowy egrets in front of me at Primehook. I'd never seen a day like that in my life. That was a Saturday I went back on Sun- day, and-there wasn't one white bird in sight. That's how fickle wildlife photography can be," he said.

"You don't want to come out with a big book like this on De- cember 26." Fleming said. A migrating male grey seal pauses at Cape Henlopen State Park on the first day of spring.
