Birds Gallery

More than 10,000 species of birds inhabit our earth. They vary tremendously in size and appearance from the tiny Ruby-throated hummingbirds seen on my website, to the world's largest bird - Africa's ostrich. For me, trying to photograph birds is as frustrating as it is rewarding. Birds tend to be happy to hang around until you point a camera at them - then off they go in what always seems to be the wrong direction. 

 

If you have never spent much time thinking about birds before - or stopped to watch one - I hope that looking at these images will propel you do so in the future. Birds really are brilliant!

 

To view images of my greatest loves - Ruby-throated hummingbirds please see the hummingbird link in the drop down menu. To learn more about Mr. Zippy - a hummingbird who has captured the hearts of many, please see the page titled Mr. Zippy.
