Patience, learning behavior, skill with camera, lighting, the elements of weather are all important factors while shooting birds. These birds are ethically photographed, I do not use "Playback" or other means to draw them in. According to the Audubon Society playing audio clips of songs and calls can be detrimental to birds and their chicks. I am an advocate of ethical photography making sure I capture them and their behaviors as authentically and conscientiously as possible. This is a collection photographing unique stories in time. I hope to bring you into these beautiful moments that I captured for you.
