Hello All,


New member here. While I enjoy many categories of photography, I first wanted to share my favorite bird photographs with you. I especially enjoy portrait style captures whenever possible. Birds are truly "living works of art." All photos were taken hand-held and have not been cropped. I especially enjoy working with "side-lighting" for the majority of my photos therefore, early morning or late afternoon sunlight works best. This can often produce a very dramatic effect, which I find quite pleasing.


I hope you'll enjoy these photos!


Best regards,


Tony
