Ruffled Feathers

I always try to talk to people about different moments to capture in their bird photography. To me, that's one of my favorite aspects of this genre - variety. We of course have perched photos and then photos of birds in flight. But there are so many more moments we...

Stuck!

Ever take photos that you didn't even know you had until you got back to the computer? That's what happened here. I was out shooting one morning and lately I've been using a shooting technique where I hand hold the camera really down low. Basically I'm kneeling on the...

I See You!

I See You!

I've got tens of thousands of photos of the Reddish Egrets I see at Ft Desoto Park in St. Petersburg FL. But somehow, every time I go, I seem to get something a little different. I guess that's what keeps us coming back right? These egrets run around with the wings up...

Sometimes You Get Nuttin’

Sometimes You Get Nuttin’

There are a few hawks that frequent my backyard and I hear them just about every day. The problem is that if (and when) they do ever fly in and land, they either land on a fence or up high in the trees with a thousand branches around and behind them. There is no...

Pastel Colors and Soft Light

I had a really nice morning earlier this week out at Fort Desoto park in St. Petersburg FL. Dick and Vicki from DVWildlife.com (they run the Eagle photography tours in North Florida) came down the day before and we met up for a morning shoot. I really like this time...
